Ooh, just watched ‘The Aristocrats’ on More 4, I guess it’s funnier when you know what you’re going to get, but I must say I loved it. So yes I may be a slightly warped and sick bastard, but at least I’m not the one coming up with the stuff. I love just seeing how far each of the comedians can take it, the ability to cross so many boundaries in one conscious thought as a way of proving skill, one-up-manship or just taking the most Freudian scatological nightmare and calling it family entertainment. Awesome. oh dear, oh dear, what has become of me
In other news, erm not a lot, twere a bit different having Christmas as a true holiday – a break from work rather than education (although I guess work atm has a pretty hefty whack of learning atm, but that’ll ease up soon enough). Not so much a Holy-day, so my occasional Christian leanings are a bit bruised (who am I kidding, you did read the first paragraph right?), but there’s still a feel to the season I guess. Here’s to a happy new year, especially for those folks who had cause to be glum in the past one – I guess I’m thinking about the Gulf and Afghan, but I suppose that feeling applies closer to home too.
Ooer, bit low that. Be happy people it’s Christmas! And if your humour’s already in the gutter you could do with a dose of the Aristocrats to make the yuletide bright.
