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. Silliness, even in the roughest of times, maybe especially on the worst of days, is never unimportant; a necessary break from the sheer nastiness of the absurdity in which we sometimes find ourselves.

So, after yet 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?‘, I give you some much needed silliness.

Ok then…


The Frogfather: The Muppets do The Godfather. Be fair, you always wanted to see it, didn’t you?

You’d think that Wile E Coyote would have learned not to play with explosives by now, but nooooo.…


I attended school back in the days when corporal punishment was still allowed, and yes, I was caned. Never fatally, though… Rowan Atkinson and Angus Deayton, on the other hand…

Another Kermit the Frog one, but one that’s surprisingly touching, I think it’s the way it starts and ends, by Kermit turning the phone cam on and off… Kermit in Lockdown, and The Rainbow Connection


I’ve always liked The Postcode Song from Mitch; wasn’t aware someone had done the obvious and annotated it. But they have, thankfully.

See you tomorrow, with… something else.



Fifty-seven more days. Fifty-seven more posts. One fifty-seventh birthday just had.

I’m trying something new with this run. I’ve signed up to ko-fi.com, so if you fancy throwing me a couple of dollars every so often, to keep me in a caffeine-fuelled typing mood, feel free. I’m on https://ko-fi.com/budgiehypoth

This post is part of a series of blog entries, counting up from my fifty-seventh birthday on 17th August 2021. You can see the other posts in the run by clicking here. (And you can see the posts in the run counting down to the birthday here.)
