Absolutely gutting news, Rik Mayall passed away this morning:


Rick: I feel sorry for you, you zeros! You nobodies! What's going to live on after you die? I'll tell you - nothing! That's what! [struggling to hang himself] Oh, this is pathetic![he gives up trying to hang himself, then sees a jar of pills and attempts to overdose]

Neil: [upon seeing Rick eating the pills] Vyv, Vyv – er, can you, like, actually kill yourself with laxative pills?

Vyvyan: I don't know Neil, but I'm going to stay and find out!

Rick: This house will become a shrine, and punks and skins and rastas will all gather round and hold their hands in sorrow for their fallen leader. And all the grown-ups will say, "But why are the kids crying?" And the kids will say, "Haven't you heard? Rick is dead! The People's Poet is dead!"

[Vyvyan crouches down to watch Rick's rear as he talks]

Rick: And then one particularly sensitive and articulate teenager will say, "Other kids, do you understand nothing? How can Rick be dead when we still have his poems?" And then another kid will say... [he then farts loudly and realises what he's been taking]

A beautiful statement from his comedy partner, Ade Edmonson:

"There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him.

"And now he's died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard."

****ing shame indeed. :(

Anyway, anyway, back to the question of food.

Oh, yeah... Hang on, this is Wimbledon Common, isn't it?


Hey... I wonder how much meat you get on a Womble?

Eddie, Eddie, Wombles don't exist.

Oh yes they do, I've seen them on the telly.

Eddie, would it scar you for life if I told you they were just puppets?

Yes it would.

Good. Eddie, they were just puppets.

Well what's that then?

It's a Arrgh! Eddie, that is a hedgehog.

No, it's not. That is Great Uncle Bulgaria.

Well if it's Great Uncle Bulgaria then the series has taken a sad turn for the worse because he's wandering about in the nude.

Hrrr-rr! The Wombles have gone X-rated! Hrrh!

Too young for The Young Ones, but Bottom is by far and away the greatest TV show ever made when you're ten. Amazingly I've been here ten years but it's only just occurred to me what the perfect custom rank for a man from Kiddermister would be.

He's also very, very good in Jonathan Creek. And in an otherwise crap special, his Flash/Robin Hood in the Millennium Dome Blackadder was glorious. "I looooooooooooooooove giving it to the poor!".
