Ricky Gervais at the Golden Globes and yet again, one of my pet subjects. So now the Americans also know that Ricky Gervais isn’t funny. If the yanks think this is the best we’ve got, they must also think we are scraping the bottom of the barrel. There is a dearth of funny “comedians” on TV. I always thought comedians had to be funny to … Continue reading Ricky Gervais
Today we’ve gone and done it. We have gone and bought a 40″ Sony TV. I’ve even played a bit with it, we watched the first two episodes of Come Fly With Me starring David Walliams and Matt Lucas on iPlayer. I just plugged in the modem cable and off we went. We can’t get HD yet as neither our Dutch decoder or my old … Continue reading A Big Television
You’ve Been Framed is funny when: Er…large people fall through trampolines. Massively overweight people break plastic chairs. Blokes revisiting their youth fall off skateboards. Cheap swimming pools burst when someone tries to do a handstand in it. Blokes get it in the cobblers doing something daft. but not when: Old people’s knickers or trousers fall down.

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it incredible that during the mad cow and foot & mouth epidemics, our government could track a single cow, born on 7th May 2001 weighing in at 39 kilos, in a tiny byre virtually hidden in the Yorkshire Dales, right … Continue reading Cows and illegal immigrants
I’ve been in the garden today. Pruned the apple tree and a beautiful yellow flowering bush, the name of which I ain’t got a clue, but it is a splash of yellow come June. Roll on May and June eh? The back step crumbled in the bad weather, the ice expanded and all we were left with was pile of grit and pebbles and we’re … Continue reading Heavy work.
A mentally disturbed kid who read nazi doctrine and was easily led, walked up to one of the politicians on Sarah Palin’s “target map” of America and deliberately shot her in the head. Many of the press put the blame fairly and squarely on Sarah Palin’s head after her and her fellow nazis made a map of America with photos of Democrats with cross hairs … Continue reading Palin said what?
