Yeah, the Saturday Smiles are back.

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.


Rowan Atkinson and Hugh Laurie, Shakespeare and Agent, to start with this week:

No reason for this one other than I stumbled across it earlier today. Bing and Frank, Well, Did You Evah? from High Society

Been a while since this one’s seen the light, but the older I get, the more I sympathise with Bert and Charlie as portrayed by The Two Ronnies.

Something to make you smile? Well, you can’t do better than Donald O’Connor’s wonderful Make Em Laugh


A newer one from Mitch Benn this week, sparked by the recent government reshuffle: They’re Shuffling the Deckchairs…

See you tomorrow, with… something else.



Sixty-one days. Sixty-one posts. One 2022 slowly approaching.
