@Bill from November Sound  - apparantly. I was reading The Fry Chronicles by Stephen Fry and from it understood there is a lot of material still to be discovered - mostly early cooperations with Emma Thompson, Hugh Laurie and Rowan Atkinson.

I'm afraid that Neil Innes has died.
Singer/guitarist of/Writer for
the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band
the Pytons
Grimms
the Rutles
and many solo adventures after that.

Understanding the British sense of absurdism and humor (I think ) is impossible without understanding the Bonzo's and the Rutles. And Monty Python of course.

Sung live against their own backing:



I will remember Neil.
Kind regards, Gus

Edit:
I'll remember George too.
But Neil more.

I’ve been warned, that more than 200 days have passed without humor.
So bump!!!



For Dutch tv!
I think the NL taking over English tv to tell them about Dutch humor won’t be met with as much applause or enthousiasm.

Enjoy! @Bill from November Sound
Kind regards, Gus

@LePlongeur

I assure you I have spent each and every one of those 200 days basking in the glow of full on British weirdness.   :)

@LePlongeur
Other kitcheners?
No we're the only ones here in the cafe. Hoi, hoi!  Proost! Cheers.

It's a rainy Sunday morning here in CT and I should be in church but you know how things are now a days.

In the old days Jesus was known to heal the sick. Today there is a tough looking deacon at the door who takes your temperature and makes sure your mask fits properly! You best be under 98 F or he tosses you out on your backside .... and that's just not going to work for me because I hurt my back pretty bad yesterday during one of my fancy house remodeling projects.  ;)

So does anyone want to jump off a cliff?   :)

Not off topic at all @Mo  :D
That poll and this thread is all really old! That is why it is funny that @LePlongeur bumped it.  :thumbsup:
