57 plus 53: One Saturday… Several Smiles

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.

(As with other ‘regular’ posts, this is the final one of these for a month or so. I’ll be back, almost certainly with a countdown to 2022, along with more Saturday Smiles. Probably a 61 day countdown – yes, there are reasons for it being a 61 day countdown – on Monday 1st November. But there are a few more ’57 plus…’ posts to come before that interregnum…)

Until then…


A couple from the wonderfully bizarre mind of Alistair Beckett Smith to start with this week:
Every Haunted House Movie

Guy Who Is About To Die In A Movie

Did you know you wanted to watch something about the evolution of Daffy Duck?You didn’t? You do know…

Roman Atkinson doing “The Devil”… a special performance for Prince Charles’ 70th Birthday.

Well of course Sesame Street did a parody of Game of Thrones entitled Game of Chairs


Facebook went down this week… did you notice? Mitch Benn did…

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.)6
