Shaggy Blog Stories

It's a Comic Relief thing which doesn't involve faded comedians, forced workplace jollity, newsreaders, charity singles, people holding up big cheques, piss-poor sketches, hilarious branded noses or ears, or studio audiences, and is thus to be heartily endorsed. It will be a book, and there's more about it here. It does involve a lot of bloggers (i.e. me and you) getting together to make a book. I have given them a post about a shrew.

Excuse my grumpiness, I have been on a delayed and astonishingly rattley train. I'm going to lie down now.


UPDATE: am in France now, making tea and stuff. There will be blog outage for a bit, but this seems like as good a post as any to leave at the top. Back in a bit.

Yeah, and UK only. Humph. Not that I'm funny, anyway, but still. Maybe I could have been. But NOOO.

So I had no recourse but to exercise my superpower and make your train late.

You're not supposed to be a grumpy old man yet, James. You're supposed to be hip, young and intellectual.

Imo said...

A shrew? What the small furry, look cute but we're going to bite off your fingers type, or the screaming opinioned and very loud female type?

james henry said...

The first one.

I'm in france now, it's very hot.

Steve Dix said...

I game them the one about The Horse Guards.

Piers said...

I have given them a post about Commander Riker.

If all these posts were run together, it would clearly be the best book in the world.

The film rights would go for millions.

Tah! It would be nothing without my funny 'doing the ironing' material.

Any Comic Relief things that don't involve faded unfunny comedians has to be a good thing. I'd give a donation to persuade them to stay off air, like paying a restaurant fiddle-player to fiddle at someone else's table.

Apart from Dawn French, who is a goddess.

Sylvia said...

hear hear!

Jen said...

Her husband, on the other hand... I wish he'd just do 'serious' because his 'funny' is crap.

So, James... any Green Wingery happening tomorrow night?
