*plaintively, like a true exile*
Didn't the Young Ones break up a while back? I couldn't get anybody else here in Florida to understand them.

After "The Young Ones", Ade Edmonson (Vivian) and Rick Mayall (Rick) did "Bottom" which was a hilarious series... The kids love it too! We've got videos of the series and of the Bottom stage plays... smiley - bigeyes

I think there was something inbetween that. It got shown on 'politically incorrect night' on BB2 ages back. Those two, plus Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders (I think) did a series in which they were all posh people. I remember it for this peice of dialogue that cracks me up each time:

"I say, that porter looks foreign!"
"Yes, I bet he's got a name like 'golliwog' or something."

Aaaagh! Just remembered! I forgot to go see Guest House Paradiso at the cinema! Oh no!

The High Duke of Mars

Wait a minute, I have my two cents ...

A frog walks into a bank and hands the teller, Mr. Paddiwack, a small trinket.

Mr. Paddiwack looks at the trinket in confusion.

The frog looks expectantly at Mr. Paddiwack.

Mr. Paddiwack goes to his supervisor, who returns, looks at the trinket, looks at the frog, and proclaims:

"That's a knick-knack, Paddiwack, give the frog a loan ..."

You may all groan. smiley - smiley

Do no harm??? That's boring. There are a lot of people who deserve harm...a lot of people I don't like...they live in Other Countries...oh dear...have I said too much?

Nah, I'm jusyt a typical Brit. None of us like the French!
Or Germans. Man did they earn it...

The High Duke of Mars

I remember an excellent Rowan Atkinson special I saw a few years back where Rowan was playing Satan. His list of Hell's occupants was something to the effect of:

"Rapists, all of you stand over there next to that small guillotine. Thieves, you lot stand over there. Murderers, thank you. Lawyers, queue there. Christians, yes I'm sorry, the Jews were right. The French (just stand over there by the Germans.)"

Actually the people I really feel for are the Qu├ębecois. Bless them, they have all the pretense of real French people but no true ground upon which to base it -- even the French despise them.

Yeah, my dad's got that! It's great, isn't it? So funny, so very very funny.
And there's the song I Hate The French.
Yeah, the only bit I haven't heard from it is the Do Bears sketch. Anyone wanna tell me about it?

C'mon! It's the weekend - Cartoon Network rules, okay? Do you think I'm stupid enough to kick them off the t.v. - they might want me to start mothering them or something! Kids are a very dangerous species, you know..... Perhaps when they back at school next week, hey? smiley - smiley
