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.

For no reason other than I just thought about it, the marvellous Stubby Kaye and Sit Down You’re Rocking The Boat from Guys and Dolls

Peter Cook, or is it E L Whisty?

Not sure if it’ll make you smile, to be honest, but let’s watch a Timelapse of the Universe, anyway…


Mitch Benn identifies that pose they all do: Pose With A Phone

See you tomorrow, with… something else.



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