Mornington Crescent!
In honour of the East London line reopening yesterday, I deem it time for a game of Mornington Crescent!

We'll play Frobisher's 4th declination, British rail stations allowed (obviously), Fenchurch Street is wild.

I'll begin:

New series on Monday
New series starts on Monday, with Jack Dee in the chair.

This is a choice I approve of! Though the articles says that a permanent host has not yet been appointed.

Feels like ages since we've had a game of anything. Anyone want to suggest something?

Horray for Jack
I think Jack Dee has been rather better than Stephen Fry. His deadpan voice is better suited, and his delivery of the gags much better -- Stephen seemed a little unsure of himself and faltered, whereas Jack's recap of Southampton (a view of the docks, until the surgery got some curtains) was ace.

And his Samantha line was priceless -- she's very pleased to find his big firm won and was happy to sit on it for a couple of days.

Be interesting to see how Rob Brydon is. He could be really good but I'd miss him from the singing rounds if he got the permanent gig.

We have tickets to see I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue in Birmingham in September.


If you don't there are only about 200 left -- this despite it not being announced via the newsletter.

They are performing at Symphony Hall.

If I may...
As you may have heard, ISIHAC is going on even without much-missed Chariman Humph. There will be a new series airing, starting Monday 15th June at 6:30pm on Radio Four; charimans are to switch between Stephen Fry, Jack Dee, and Rob Brydon. Hooray, more Clue!

In celebratory anticipation, may I suggest a game of Uxbridge English Dictionary? New definitions for words, starting here!

The End of an Era
Chairman Humph brought gravitas to each and every half hour of mayhem, and whilst he was the voice of reason amongst all of that chaos, it was with the driest of wit and impeccable timing that he himself could get the biggest laughs. His double entendres were delivered with such a knowing that they barely qualified as single entendres, let alone doubles...

It was with huge pleasure that I was able to get to see the show live. First as part a normal series, two episodes recorded here in Birmingham in May 2006 (I think) and then the Live Tour last year. Both were dreams come true -- to penetrate the secrets of the show and to enjoy the sublime silliness live -- that in a way I will always treasure.

There will of course be the question of what the BBC will do about I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, but for the moment that does not matter. I prefer to think about the years of delight and laughter that he gave us, not just on this show, but others also.

Clue - Live

Has anyone else seen the live show? I saw it last night in Brighton and I haven't laughed so much in years. The night started with John Naismith (who looks uncannily like a young Alan Bennett) giving a few hints about what was to come and a few Health and Saftey announcments, like, in case of fire in the theater (again!) make your way to the fire doors and knock and wait for them to be unlocked. the whole team was there, apart from Samantha, who was delayed by various Gentlemen Friends and never made it in time. Seeing as Jeremy Hardy was in situ the second round was one song to the tune of another and he didn't disappoint with I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat to the tune of I Vow to Thee My Country, which caused Colin Sell to wave a white flag, and in Pick up Song he regaled us with Thank You For The Music, ably assisted by the audience. Talking of the Audience we joined in with a Kazoo version of Karioke-cokey. The evening climaxed with a round of Mornington Crescent and for an encore we had Swanee Kazoo and Humph treating us to Happy Days are Here again on the Trumpet. All in all it's well worth seeing if they do another tour

It's ages since we placed a game, so let's have some suggestions of new definitions for words.

It's back...
Just in case anyone hasn't heard... ISIHAC is back tonight, radio 4 6:30 of course.

Does anyone feel like devising a Samantha-style introduction in honour of the occasion?

Current Mood: excited

Another Limmerick
Lest we forget, this game takes its name from the Irish town traditionally associated with meaningless nonsense - Ballykisangel.

I'll start, everyone add one line each until the limerick is completed.

OK, this one's simple. Humph provides the first line of a limerick, and each panellist adds one line at a time. For the LJ version, anyone can provide a leading line in a post, and then anyone *else* can add a line. You can't add more then one at a time though.

So, I'll lead with

Another censored song
Shania Twain, "That Don't Impress Me Much"

I've known a few guys who thought they were pretty ****
But you've got being **** down to an art
You think you're a ****-you drive me up the wall
You're a regular original, a know-it-all
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're ****
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're **** else

Okay, so you're a **** scientist
That don't impress me much
So you got the brain but have you got the ****
Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright
But that won't keep me warm in the middle of the night
That don't impress me much

I never knew a guy who carried a ****** in his pocket
And a **** up his sleeve-just in case
And all that extra hold gel in your **** oughtta lock it
'Cause Heaven forbid it should fall outta place

Oh-oo-oh, you think you're ****
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're **** else

I'll leave the rest to Samantha's imagination...

Censored Song
Would the members of this community please post a song, taking care to remove any obscenities they might have noticed.

I'm not sure how this will go, but let's see.

I'll start with the classic theme tune to "Dad's Army":

Who do you think you are ****ing, Mr Hitler,
If you think we're on the ****?
We are the boys who will stop yor little game
We are the boys who will make you **** again
So who do you think you are ****ing, Mr Hitler,
If you think old England's ****?

Mr Brown goes off to town on the eight twenty-one,
But he comes home each evening and he's ready with his ****
So who do you think you are ****ing, Mr Hitler,
If you think old England's ****?
