Monday, March 05, 2007


I would have chosen a 'Diversion' sign as the picture for this entry, but the above photo somehow appealed to me more. Anyway, we're changing our blog address as of today to:


I hope that's ok. It's a bit easier for us to use, you see.

Sorry the show is late. We were up till 3am editing this morning, but then brains didn't really work, and it's taken us longer than expected to join the dots etc. But as an apology, and a celebration of all that's good, please watch this video. I have a burning desire to dance like this. Charleston = better than breakdancing, but similar.

Adam Buxton and on...

Another video by the legendary Adam Buxton. He wrote this sketch and features in it as a "Rock Dad", assimilating the lines of NWA's "Fuck da Police" in to something more child-friendly.

Thisisacatchy song

You might have seen this video before, but I'm just using it as a) a springboard in to the next video and b) because I find it so catchy. Then there's this one, which has been cut together so that it becomes a little cheekier. It's to do with pirates and women. About two thirds of the way through, the word 'thisisaknife' can be heard. Can you hear it?

Going Sulu

You probably remember that last week, US basketball star Tim Hardaway told everyone that he "hates gay people". See below. Who better to respond to these remarks than George Takei, the guy who most famously played Mr Sulu in Star Trek (TOS)? And how.

Armies and Legs

The parents have just got back from India, bringing with them incense and goblets. But most importantly, a video of Indian and Pakistani soldiers at the border between their respective countries. I edited parts of it together, and added a healthy dollop of music. Please enjoy.

419 Time

You may remember that in our previous incarnation, we featured 419 Eater, the site that takes 419 scammers and just tries to waste their time while having as much fun at their expense as possible. The 419 Eaters normally just get scammers to prove who they say they are by taking photos of themselves holding placards with lovely slogans, or adopting humorous poses. Or sometimes even both. Since the scammers normally claim to be someone they're not, the photos are generally very badly photoshopped. But now they've taken things a step further and asked two 419 scammers to re-enact Monty Python's famous Dead Parrot Sketch. In its entirety. And they do. Watch below.
