A good start to the day! Funny. Have always loved the saucy postcards at seaside resorts. Must get working it's nearly 9am.ReplyDelete
Brilliant! Tommy Cooper and Les Dawson were in a class of their own.Still making us laugh, thanks for reminding us of a pre-pc ageReplyDelete
My father had Spike Milligan ride in his taxi once years ago in Brisbane,when spike was out here.ReplyDelete
It's good that Spike could bring laughter into people's live when he was alive.At least his legacy lives on for new generations to have a laugh and lighten life's load just that little bit.
I'm reading cartoonist R Crumb's book at the moment,but his humour is a tad bit more raunchier and controversial than the stuff above.
It's Crumb's birthday tomorrow,too (August 30th).
I love quips like these. Thanks!ReplyDelete
