It's a funny thing because, especially having watched this morning's BBC Breakfast, this comment at Biased BBC made me laugh out loud (genuinely, rather than in the sarky Twitter sense of 'lol'):
My main point of dissent here is that I absolutely loved Ian McMillan's contributions this morning.
His half-deadpan/half-broad-and-Northern humour had me laughing out loud several times - and he wore his worthy left-wingery (though unquestionably on display throughout) very lightly.
In fact I'd go so far as to say that this was the best BBC Breakfast paper review I've seen in a long while, at least since...well, since the Bard of Barnsley was last on...
...and I've been trying even since this morning to see if some kindly YouTube user has captured the moment and posted Ian's lovely, hilarious tribute to Phil Sayer, the voice of London Underground's 'Mind..the Gap' (who died this week), as I thought you'd love it too. Alas, no one has done so yet.
Ian McMillan was funnier in just two minutes here than the entirely of the last series of The Now Show...
...and here am I going on about it and you probably didn't see it, and (unless YouTube comes to the rescue) might never see it.. So I should probably shut up about it then.
Though it might get lost in translation (and as you probably had to be there, as it was the delivery that made it so funny), the Bard of Barnsley was commenting on To boldly grow: Nasa puts potatoes on menu for Mars. His suggestion was that Mars Pipers will be the obvious spud of choice and that "these will be anti-gravity potatoes, because there's less gravity on Mars, that will lift themselves from the chip pan up to your mouth."
Well, it amused me.
