Cheap LaughsOh dear God, I have just seen the funniest thing!
In the wee small hours, it is common for British TV channels to show repeats with sign-language for the deaf. Tonight, sleep was proving somewhat elusive so I was channel hopping at the crap end of the digital TV spectrum. I came across the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. The Hits, one of the multitude of music video channels, was playing DJ Sammy's latest bit of pap. The video showed lots of nubile young things running around the beach - and in the foreground a woman of a certain age signing along, before dancing like your aunty at a wedding after too many Gins during the instrumental! I don't know if it says more about me, or the state of TV comedy, that I spontaneously burst out laughing for the first time in ages. I was wiping tears from my eyes.
Sadly, I couldn't get a screen capture to share with you all.
FOR YOUR PERUSAL
