A Pinch and a Punch for the First of the Month

That’s what we always used to say at my school, suiting the action to the word.  Nowadays I rhyme things much better and don’t go about pinching or punching… so, happy first of August to you all.

So – today being Thursday we are talking life on the i-player.  Last night I watched the best of a poor bunch (well, it is the holiday season) which began with Some Boffins with Jokes.  Sadly the boffins weren’t as funny or as unexpected as the Vicars with Jokes; however I did like this one:

A Higgs-Boson walks into a Catholic Church.  The priest comes up and says, ‘You can’t come in here.’

The Higgs-Boson says, ‘But you have to let me in!’

‘Why?’ says the priest.

‘Because you can’t have Mass without me!’ announces the Higgs-Boson.

Har har har.  And the good thing about that joke is that you can pretend to understand Physics as well…

I followed this up with a trip to Room 101 where Miranda Hart was guesting with a rather unexpected John Craven (apparently he is hosting some kind of gardening programme these days) and some young bloke whose name I don’t remember but who was quite entertaining.  Now I like Miranda when she’s not being ‘Miranda’ (if you see what I mean) and I’ve always found John Craven quite personable and sensible, so this was a good watch.  Craven managed to get two of my pet hates into Room 101, which were: spitting (whether in sport or otherwise) and the perverse spelling of ordinary names just to be different (Mychel, Lyz, Marck).  The other guy succeeded in getting blue-tooth headsets consigned to oblivion as well, which was fun; although Miranda tried and failed to get her breasts sent there.


That she doesn’t like them, I mean.

I like mine.

OK that’s quite enough!  No comments please… Here are the programmes:



and here’s an item about spitting:


OH, and finally – I’ve found my yoga CD’s.  If you would like one they’re £5 plus postage.  Just drop me a line.
