Hoot! Bray! Snort!


I don't watch much TV to be honest, but there are two 'television events' I have come to dread, primarily because they seem to take on a life of their own and infest my normally serene and untroubled existance. Actually, it used to be three until I gave up worrying and learned to love Eurovision......

Children In Need is bad enough, but the worst of all is the painfully unfunny showbiz shindig that is Comic Relief. Basically, if you find the Vicar of Dibley a rip-roaring hoot, then you'll just love it this nine hour dirge of mirthless pratting about and wackiness.
For the rest of us (what? all three of you? Jeez...........) it'll be an evening spent doing something less boring instead. Like this. Or maybe this...

To be honest, I have great admiration for anyone who can sit through more than an hour Lenny Henry without grinding their teeth down to bloody stumps.
To make things worse, due entirely to Comic Relief, I've had to suffer the horrific musical tastes of other people today at work and I'm feeling distinctly uncharitable. Yeah, great idea that, bring in yr CD collection then charge people for the pleasure of inflicting their idea of aural Nirvana on innocent bystanders. Complete torture it was.........

Needless to say, I now wish somene would form a lynch mob and hunt down Paulo Nuttini.

What they do with him after they find him, well that is none of my concern.........

It's not all bad though. Thanks to Billy, I've discovered 'Observer Woman Makes Me Spit'. At present probably the only blog dedicated to the complete and utter loathing of a monthly womens supplement in a sunday broadsheet. Quite brilliant it is too. They also seem not to suffer fools like Grazia too gladly either.

Also, I'd like to say a big "Well Done!" to Troubled Diva who managed to pull together a book of amusing and witty blog entries in a mere seven days (proceeds to Comic Relief). I did consider contributing, but since I don't really do 'funny', I thought better of it and left it to those who are more adept at making people giggle. Worth a million miserable CR Mr Bean 'Specials' I say...

Ok, Friday Youtube time with.......



They're still going apparently.....

Hey, it keeps us off the streets, OK?

Thanks so much for your kind words. Spread the bile everyone.

Spitting Mad - No problem. I think....

Consider the bile well and truly spread....

May - I stand corrected. Still think he's rubbish though....

He's only a teenager. There is worse rubbish around.

True May, I was just in a foul mood at having to put up with other peoples music at work. My comments about him were exaggerated.

Anyway, I like rubbish too, but it has to be MY rubbish...;D
