Origins of Bluebottle

That is just fabulous!

Those two were so funny, that just to listen to them talking about anything, makes me roar with laughter!

I have always been a big fan of the Goon Show and remember the original Parkinson broadcast well. Many years later,with the advent of the net, I saw that the original subject of the bluebottle character, wasn't very pleased with this episode, but even the most gentle micky taking humour has an element of other people's expense. That's just life.

Excellent stuff. We need it in these dark and dreary times.

Scrobs - imagine what they might have said about the modern world.

Tammly - but today it would lead to high drama if the original subject turned out to be a member of a protected group such as the 'vocally disadvantaged'.

Sam - we do and it's worth seeking out as an alternative to dreary headlines.
