April 5, 2020

When Daily Mail Australia asked Molan about her ‘hooka looka’ outburst, she said she was referring to this broadcast.

Brohman told an exaggerated story about a debate between father and son commentators, Ray and Chris Warren.

The pair were discussing how to pronounce the name of reserve Manly, front of Tongan descent, Haumole Olakau’atu.

Darryl Brohman: He had a name with about 30 letters in it, and I had a hard time pronouncing it and I said to Chris ‘Mate, how do you pronounce this guy’s name?’

He said, “Well, Daddy and I talked about it today, because Daddy’s a little way down the road in his luxurious coffin…”

I said, “Well, what happened?”

He said, ‘Well daddy thought his name was Chooka-lucka-loo-loo, but I said no, no, no, daddy, I think it’s Chooka-lucka-loo-loo-loo-loo’ [Erin Molan and others laugh]

He says, “Chris, that’s incorrect. It’s Chooka-kaloola-loolalo’ [Erin Molan and others laugh]

He says, “Well, I’m not so sure, Dad. The way I look at his Chooka-kalala-looliew’ [Erin Molan and others laugh]

I said, ‘Well, it’s one hell of a predicament we’re in here.’ [Erin Molan and others laugh]

He says: ‘I’m just going to check on daddy again’.


“Yes Chris?”

“Is it Chooka-kaloooo-laloo?” [Erin Molan and others laugh]

He said no. It’s Chooka-kaloola-looloo-loola’ [Erin Molan and others laugh]. So that’s what I’m going to continue with today, Big Marn.’

He said, ‘okay, what’s the name? Let’s just call him Sebby…’ [Erin Molan and others laugh]

This story was repeated in a shorter form on April 12, 2020, and Molan joined the words: ‘What was the name again? Pooka-pocka-pooka-pa?’

April 12, 2020

Erin Molan: Hey, Rabs, last week Big Marn told a really funny story about you and Chris and an interaction you had when you both called from the same premises.

Darryl has been known to exaggerate a bit, so what I’d like right now, if this is okay with you, Levy, as host, is for Darryl to retell that story and Rabs to tell you the accuracy level from 0 to 10. Would that be good?

Ray Warren: Whatever you want, Erin.

The April 5 story was then retold in much the same way as the original

Later on April 12, 2020

Darryl Brohman: When you go to a gas station, you’re like me, do you always go through thick and thin to that gas station?

Mark Levy: Yes. Firm as a rock.

Darryl Brohman: I do that too. I even know that guy over there now, he’s a nice guy. He is Indian. But he’s a really good guy.

Erin Molan: Is there only one?

Darryl Brohman: I said ‘how are you, mate?’ He said ‘oh, very good, thank you very much’ [Indian accent]

Erin Molan: Oh, Darryl. [Erin Molan laughs] You can not…

Darryl Brohman: That’s how he talks.

Mark Levy: I am also very loyal to my gas station. And yes, Darryl, my gas station attendant is Indian and he thinks my name is Russell.

Erin Molan: Can I ask everyone how do you know they are Indian?

Mark Levy: Because I had a conversation with him…

Erin Molan: He could be Pakistani….

Mark Levy: No, he is Indian.

Darryl Brohman: There is a difference. [Erin Molan laughs]

Erin Molan: I know there is a difference.
