April 5, 2020

When Daily Mail Australia asked Molan about her “hooka-looka” outburst, she said she was referring to that show.

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

The couple debated how to pronounce the name of Tonga national Haumole Olakau’atu’s reserve Manly forward.

Darryl Brohman: He had a name of about 30 letters and I was having trouble pronouncing it and I said to Chris, ‘Dude, how do you pronounce this guy’s name?’

He said, “Well, Dad and I talked about it today because Dad is down the road in his luxury box…”

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 wrong. 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’ll just check with Dad again’.


‘Yes Chris?’

“Is it chooka-kalooloo-laloo?” [Erin Molan and others laugh]

He said no. It’s chooka-kaloola-looloo-loola’ [Erin Molan and others laugh]. So today I’m taking it to Big Marn.’

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

That story was repeated in a shorter form on April 12, 2020, and Molan echoed it, saying, “What was the name again? Pooka-poka-pooka-pa?’

April 12, 2020

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

Darryl has been known to exaggerate a bit so I’d love it now if that’s ok with you, Levy for hosting Darryl retells this story and Rabs for letting us know the accuracy level from 0 to 10 afterwards. Would be that ok?

RayWarren: whatever you want

The April 5 story was then retold similar to the original

Later on April 12, 2020

Darryl Brohman: When you go to a gas station, like me, do you go to that gas station through thick and thin all the time?

Mark Levy: Yes. Firm as a rock.

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

Erin Molan: is there only one

Darryl Brohman: I said, “How are you, buddy?” 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 speaks.

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 just ask everyone how do you know they are Indian?

Mark Levy: Because I talked to 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’s a difference. Erin Molan, Daily Mail Australia Decision on Comments on Pacific Islanders
