Madness

So the Lord of the Hobbits is going to remake The Dam Busters. In the name of God, why??? And why not Dam Busters: The Musical? It's already got one good singalong number. All together now - Da Daa da Daa da-da Da Da Daaa...

  2. I suppose Guy Gibson's dog 'Nigger' will become 'Nige', hey, Nige?

  4. I'm especially looking forward to the dramatic climax when the commandos realize that drowning all those innocents would be a war crime and that war can never be justified anyway, so instead they will all just go home and start a United Nations club.

  5. I think they'll hit problems when they come to the point where Barnes Wallis utters the never-to-be-forgotten words "Go out and bounce the bastards!" Unpalatable as they seem to us, you just can't change words that inspired a generation.

  7. Nige, I'm sure you're getting confused with the theme to 'Where Eagles Dare'.

  8. No, it's the theme tune to 'Grange Hill'.

  9. If they want box office, I think they should go instead for The Dame Busters featuring bouncing bras and, of course, Monica Belluci.

    Curiously, that article doesn't say who wrote the screenplay, but I just happened upon it looking up something else: The writer is Stephen Fry! Is this a funny movie?

    In the course of my perusal of various comedians (it all began when I was confirming the spelling of Drew Carey's last name -- so easily confused with Jim Carrey), I read a long article on Ryan Stiles, late of "Whose Line Is It Anyway"?

    How many here think that GORDON McCABE bears a striking resemblance to RYAN STILES? (Check out McCabism to find photos of the physicist on a trip to a scholarly conference.)

  13. I almost bought a Liverpool shirt last week with 'Peter Crouch' on the back. I decided against it though, on the basis that I might actually get mistaken for him, and asked to play up front with Kirt Dyke, or someone.

    I caught a recent American version of 'Whose Line is it Anyway?', and, astonishingly, Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie are still going! Clive Anderson looks like he's put on some weight though.
