I saw one of these ads on the tube when I was in London last weekend. I was very tempted to steal it but I thought I might be shot by the CCTV so I didn't.

Wyndham said...

Shot by the CCTV! I don't like the sound of that. Isn't technology sinister these days?

patroclus said...

Saves a fortune in policing, though.

Tim Footman said...

I remember when law and order was maintained by a park keeper with a stick that had a spike on the end.

Or was that just in The Dandy?

The word verfication is "lsbgv" which sounds a bit like an abbreviation for a number of sexual minorities, but I'm a grabbing as straws for the 'v'. Are virgins a sexual minority?

Dave again said...

If a minority is anything less than 50% of the population, then, on balance, probably yes.

Ah, Mac DOES have legs. Cunningly concealed though.

patroclus said...

Something tells me you've been studying this picture in quite some detail, albert.

I hate to criticize but I'm not sure why that link takes me to parrots. Well, I do know why, I'm just not sure why you wanted me to look at a parrot. I'm sort of indifferent to them really. I don't want to kill them or anything. Honest. Well, ok, I did have this one traumatic memory from when I was about 5 and the local pet shop had a talking parrot which wasn't really tied up properly and it flew about and... but that's just a random incident. I'm sure that most parrots are very nice.

Have a nice evening all. It will be so good, I know.

[I'm going to go round the corner and cry now]

i wonder why they wanted him to look like a floating naked torso and head.

strange, these advertising types

DavetheF said...

What is this ... Green Wing? Is it your juju?

patroclus said...

Ahh, Dave, it's every blogger's (well, mine, and Pash's) favourite filthy 'n' deranged hospital-based sitcom.

If you're over in April you may have the pleasure of seeing some of the second series, which has started out in a promisingly insane fashion.

longcat said...

watched it & it was great...

i don't why i didn't see it first time around, but i've been checking out the first series and now this new one and...

yes please...

Merkin said...

Not as good as the first series, IMHO...

patroclus said...

Merkin! Long time no see! I thought it started out a bit rocky, but the second half was brilliant. From the trailers it looks like normal service will be resumed next week, too. Ahh, give it a bit of time.

DavetheF said...

Looks like I'll be over in early May, but we'll see. Is it like Scrubs?

patroclus said...

Ahh, London in the Spring, fantastic. I've never really seen Scrubs, but I think GW is probably a lot ruder. It's like a rude, silly sketch-show-with-a-storyline that's loosely set in a hospital. And it's British. Hurrah! More details here

Scrubs is 'tabulous, mind. Currently debating whether to get third series on DVD or wait for price to come down a bit...
