2017 minus 15: Huh, the penultimate Saturday Smile…

Posted: 17 December 2016 in 2017 minus, saturday smiles

Occurred to me as I opened the WordPress app that this is – in this run of seventy-five blog posts counting down to 2017 – the penultimate Saturday Smile post. And in some ways, this is the last of the ‘real’ Saturday Smiles as well. In a week’s time, next Saturday, it’ll be Christmas Eve, and I’ve already chosen my videos for that post; all silly, or daft, or sweet, and all of them Christmas based. 

And exactly one week after that, we’ll be on New Year’s Eve, and if the fact that we’re less than 24 hours from the end of this hateful, horrible year doesn’t lighten your load, then I’m not sure any comedy videos will do the job. So, in two weeks, I’ll write something just for the end of a shitty year.

Time for some classics, I think…

One of the all time classic examples of what can be done with a standard cartoon format- Duck Amuck

So, Who’s On First…? (Abbott and Costello)

Four Candles

Super-Chess, so, so clever

And, finally, as we approach the penultimate week of the year, one might expect Sir Humphrey Appleby to have something to say… and he does

See you tomorrow, with something else. 

This post is part of a series of blog entries, counting down to 1st January 2017. You can see other posts in the run by clicking here.
