Documentaries which use an obvious soundtrack. Whenever they look back to the dawn of humanity, they will use ominous, foreboding music; surely people knew how to have fun back then? I'd like to see an anthropology documentary set to the Benny Hill theme.

I saw quite a dreadful documentary a few years ago, entitled 'When Dinosaurs Ruled... Europe', part of the 'When Dinosaurs Ruled...' series. As well as the terribly predictable soundtrack (jungle drums – not that dinosaurs are known for their love of percussion) they introduced their discussion on dinosaur discoveries in Spain by showing a shot of the Needles, Isle of Wight. It isn't even remotely close.

'not that dinosaurs are known for their love of percussion'.
Not that the percussion section here is of the highest quality, but on the whole, this is pretty percussive. There are a few glimpses of dinosaurs here playing drums. Provided that you don't get distracted by the, er, mammals.

The feral cats having deserted the place, the kangaroo rats having a population explosion.

Swimming pool lifeguards who constantly blow their whistles, with no indication of who they are whistling at or why.
I don't wear my glasses when swimming and find it hard enough to work out what's going on at the best of times.

People who fart on aeroplanes. It is enclosed and just hangs about.

Something to do with cabin pressure? Or airline food?

BT , who insist that I have my bill online to save money, but send me advertising through the post at least once per month.
I have no interest in advertising from them but would quite like not having to access my bill online.
I'd also like not to keep paying for them to send me advertising.

That's not the punchline of a joke. That's an advertisement for an outdoor/camping shop. Don't ask me which one - it's been used more than once, AFAIK.

That's what the Internet told me, too.
But it was also the punchline of a joke before it was a byline for selling overpriced kit. It's quite an obvious one, so I would be surprised if it didn't arise simultaneously in different places. And I also suspect the hand of Ronnie Barker.
