On the eve of the German Grand Prix at Nuremberg in Germany, Max Mosley and Bernie Ecclestone have decided to retire from show business.
Their famous double act 'Bernie Und Max', affectionally known as BUM by their followers, became synonymous with laughter, shock and horror.
Revues such as 'Watch It We're Very Nazi Boys', 'Grand Prix I Say', 'Up There, Yes, Yes, And Yes Again', 'I'm Hitler Who Are Jew?' and 'Weird Fucks - Oh Yes We Do', catapulted the duo onto the worldwide stage where they made a name for themselves as a novelty extreme right-wing variety act.
The move to television saw them become international stars, but the strain began to show and in recent years their bizarre antics became less humorous and more disturbing.
Ecclestone said that he had always enjoyed Mosley's sense of fun, especially when discussing the removal of the monarchy and a new regime based on the German model from the 1930's. He also said that Mosley would've made a great dictator.
Mosley said of his partner for almost 16 years, "He's a funny little", forgetting to say 'cun*'. But this was always part of the charm of their act, often leaving things out or putting things in that shouldn't have been there.
Both have said they would like to become politicians, but it is more likely that they will end up in old people's homes, drooling their notoriously offensive one liners to the nurses and taking it up the arse.
We hope so and wish them luck.
