57 minus 45: Another Saturday Smile

Silliness, even in the roughest of times, the worst of days, is never unimportant.

Indeed, as I’ve grown older, if not wiser, I’ve come to appreciate silliness as one of the best, the most superlative, things about humanity.

And some thing don’t change. In the year and a half’\s absence from this place, things are still not great for most people. So, after another week when the only sensible reaction to the news is to answer Twitter’s ‘What’s happening?‘ with a hearty ‘how the fuck should I know?’, here’s some much needed silliness.

For this run, I’m going to try and find, each week, three archive clips, one example of something that’s just… nice. And then end every week with something from my mate Mitch, who fortunately has continued to provide videos over the past year.

Ok, let’s start.


Here’s another of Randy Rainbow’s moments of genius: SEDITION!


Have some Prime Cracker; Robbie Coltrane and Helen Mirren being very silly.

A classic: Abbott & Costello with Who’s On First?

This week’s ‘nice’ smile: This delightfully charming animation of how the vaccine works.

From 2020, Mitch had some advice during lockdown: Do Fuck All… (yeah, this one’s a bit sweary…)

See you tomorrow, with something else.
