Not much here, but I enjoy Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony and am partial to Kenny Rogers, Bob Dylan and the Beatles as well as Queen, the King and (to my secret shame) The Chicken Song and Agadoo.

I'll give you a minute to recover from those two...

The Big Yin

Scotland's greatest source of wisdom, or a sweary, angry, middle-aged man with a beard. Well, both versions are pretty funny...

Billy Connelly does it for me every time! I just can't stop crying when he's in full flow, and if I'm watching him on video or DVD, I have to rewind whole routines to catch something he said because I'm laughing so hard at the previous sentence. He's so observant of human nature and everyday, but has a certain knack of putting the point across in the most humorous way. No subject is sacred, yet I haven't found anything he's done offensive.

Whether it's a country song with all the miseries of humanity piled one after another, a story about two Irish tourists in Rome drinking pints of the 'green stuff the Pope favours', or his theory of the madman who sneaks around following drunks and throwing diced carrots into their vomit, he's a unique visionary. And, like many comedians, he's also proven himself as a solid actor in films such as The Big Man and Mrs Brown.smiley - smiley

smiley - spacesmiley - spaceuse this code for 2. smiley - spacesmiley - spacesmiley - spacesmiley - spacesmiley - spacesmiley - space ( no air between " " and > < )

2. finished code to post here with your collection name and your Unumber:

actually, since THIS one is going to be one line in my collection, looking like this:
