Badger (n. & tr.v)

Just in case anyone reading this is one of the eleven people in the United Kingdom not already spamm...informed by Ian Potter about the availability of his radio sketch show, No Tomatoes, please consider popping along to

http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7/listenagain/sunday/rams/2315.ram

and giving episode one a listen. There's a damn fine joke about badgers in there for a start, and at a mere fifteen minutes that's a minimum of one more joke than Snuff Box for half the time invested.


[DISCLAIMER: Ian's met Eric Sykes, you know. This brush with Legend is the main reason I'm promoting his work: you never know when he and Eric might decide to nip round to mine for a cup of tea and a live commentary on The Nineteenth Hole.]

Ah, you got spammed too, eh. I'd have been much more inclined to promote the fellow's work if he'd sent a nicely personalised email, you know. ;)

That's the life of the busy meeja type, I suppose. You just become another name on their mailing lists!

Spam! Nonsense, you won't believe what a hand picked bunch you are.

I didn't say spammed, you'll notice. That was that Simon, that was :)

That'd be a pretty poor showing on a list of, like, half a dozen :)

Damn, does that mean I'm not even on your mailing list?

I bet that Michalowski is, though. Typical oppression of the working classes by the intelligentsia (or something).

Stuart: "Typical oppression of the working classes by the intelligentsia (or something)"

I'm going with the 'or something' - whatever the opposite of intelligentsia is, I'll bet it's not half as fancy a word but it will doubtless be applicable to me :)

You know, I've never seen the Nineteenth Hole. As the UK's only certified fan of Speight, Sykes and Ken Campbell this seems unlikely. Maybe it's why...

It's just Ken Campbell that trips you up there - surely everyone likes Speight and Sykes?

I have a faint memory of watching 19th Hole when it was on telly, but I've never come across a copy since. Maybe Eric could bring a copy with him round to my house?

It's very clever... possibly more clever than actually funny... but it is very clever... and a bit funny...
