Goodies! Goodies!

Ok, they're new to me. I got The Goodies out on DVD from the library and have been laughing between random crying (see depression entry) so that makes me more balanced, I suppose. Either that or more unbalanced... hmm.

The Goodies are very good. The one with the Giant Kitten destroying London was particularly funny, as was the "Making Babies By Doing Dirty Things" episode. The BBC makes some random things, but so much funnier and more original than American humour, and on a shoe-string budget too. Maybe having less money makes you work harder. Or maybe the Brits are just naturally hilarious.

I think it's because the British are always taking the piss out of themselves, and the Americans tend to only show 'winners' who take the piss out of 'losers'. But in the Young Ones and The Goodies and other shows of the ilk, the stars of the shows have bizarre personality disorders and often, hygiene issues.

Goodies! Goodies! Goody Goody Yum Yum...

The battle between the Salvation Army and Boy Scouts was always a personal favourite
