First off, I didn't really take to this story. I figured: "Caves, bears, sure, I can dig that."

It was funny, but nothing brilliant.

Then there's the twist at the end. I should've seen it coming, but it just hit me. Very funny!

Here it is:
Discovery of Caves on Mars Leads Scientists to Obvious Conclusion... Martian Bears.

Just listening to Elton John's 'Your Song' - with Ronan Keating.

There's one lyric, "I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss..." - the only problem is it's sung by Keating and due to his unfortunate speech impediment, where he seems to slur everything (so 's' sounds like 'sh' ), this comes out as "I shat on the roof".

So not so much a misheard lyric, because that's what he actually says - but it made me laugh anyway

I was just reading about ANS's death on Wikipedia and was amazed by this revelation:


According to Seminole Police Chief Charlie Tiger, at 1:38 p.m. (18:38 UTC) Smith's bodyguard Big Moe, who is a trained paramedic,[2] called the hotel front desk from her sixth floor room. The front desk in turn called security, who then called 911.


Why didn't the bodyguard dial 911 himself direct?

It later goes on to say that the bodyguard started to administer CPR at 1:45 - 7 minutes after calling front desk. And he's a trained paramedic?!

I just remembered I wrote a story about a similar deal Woman hospitalised after pubic lice removal attempt

I was working part time in a supermarket back then and it always used to make me chuckle every time I saw the can.

Wow that was over three years ago

What do you know, two in one day:


Oswald's dallas window fetches 3 million.

...

The glass removed from the window was taken by military jet to Washington, so members of the commission could look through it and see if Oswald could have had a reasonable view of the Presidents motorcade.

Quote: Monkey Woods


Quote: Mark Lowtonthe second written by a monkey, equipped solely with a stick and a bucket of poo.


Sensitive people can be hurt, you know.

What do you think about Jam and Jerusalem?


Hi Monkey, no offence intended - I'm sure your writing is lovely...no matter how it smells...

Jam and Jerusalem - Well I think it all it does is highlight how good an actress Sue Johnston is. But I think that is all.

Dawn French's character is laughable (not in a good way) as is Jennifer Saunder's cringeworthy old woman character - it adds absolutely nothing. And their acting skills in these roles proves...well...nothing?

The character who play's Johnston's daughter (sorry, I'm not an avid fan) is pointless, as is her son...so she's a hippy, and he's black...hmm, political? No. Bollocks, yes! Her character is totally unbelievable of a woman of her age. If she were 18, then maybe it would hold water, but that woman's 30 if she's a day - just totally unbelievable...although I could imagine one of my ex's sister could turn out like that (sorry )

I remember the first episode more than any others I've been subjected to...and I don't remember much. The most I remember was the cringeworthy (and yes, I think that word does sum up this programme) funeral service for the father of the character played by Sue Jonston. It was simply sickening...and the attempt at levity was questionable.

The last "comedy" (other than VoD) I saw starring Dawn French was some God awful sitcom where she worked in a Post Office and was a lesbian (sorry, I can't remember the title).

As far as I remember - and I don't remember much - this programme was showing a conservative (and perhaps backwards) island population's reaction to lesbian relationships...but I could be wrong

Hi Buck E - I think the news of this interview is marvellous.

I once got some radio exposure for The Spoof. Sadly, it was a local radio station...and when I say local I mean an audience of about 3 people and a field of sheep...maybe two fields...

Well done

This is probably only pertinent to the Brits - But what's the deal with the latest and (thankfully) final episodes of the Vicar of Dibley?

Don't get me wrong - I love the VoD. I thought the original series were absolutely ace.

Then they brought out a special episode a couple of Christmases ago and it was some bollocks political statement about the poor in Africa. The scripting was absolutely dire and the comedy was cringeworthy.

Then come these latest two episodes. The one aired on Christmas day - Brilliant! Very true to the original writing, style of comedy, everything. I finally thought this rut of poor quality sitcom writing we seem to be stuck in might have been making a turn around.

But currently, as I'm just watching the remains of the second episode of this two-parter, I'm absolutely gobsmacked. I truly believe they must have split the episodes in two: one written by a comedy genius, the second written by a monkey, equipped solely with a stick and a bucket of poo.

Does anyone else share these sentiments, or is it just me?

When I first saw this headline I thought it said Paris Hilton Syndrome.

'aris Syndrome' strikes Japanese

Ah, the French, c'est formidable!


Many of the visitors come with a deeply romantic vision of Paris - the cobbled streets, as seen in the film Amelie, the beauty of French women or the high culture and art at the Louvre.

The reality can come as a shock.

Yeah, looks like Willis won that one - Well done! You must be an absolute film buff.

I hardly know the names of most of the big players in movies - bit of a silly move me starting this game really

So, does someone want to start another game? Make it anything you like.
