Default Phony Lady

It's perfectly clear to me that this dear old duck will soon be auditioning for a part in Midsomer Murders. This is a TV series on ITV1, not unlike Inspector Morse, filmed in the Chilterns and full of quirky kooks that the producers seem to think inhabit rural English villages like mine. The producers find some crumbling village cottage to use as part of a set and they pay about 1500 per day to the lucky person who owns it.
In one episode they excelled themselves by dressing up the public toilet block in Thame as the 'Causton Public Library' and this resulted in numerous pensioners writing to popular radio announcers to complain that their facilities were being desecrated.

Thanks! I haven't laughed so much for a very long time. I have mailed the link to some of my book-loving friends who think computers are difficult to understand.


This video is not really engineering humor, but maybe we can make an exception

This reminds me of a time when my wife was chatting with a few friends in the US, and she pronounced a word in a way that sounded like the familiar four lettered word commonly seen the NY subways. That really made heads turn.
