Ode to Cliff Richard by Rick of the Young Ones

Oh Cliff 

Sometimes it must be difficult not to feel as if 

You really are a cliff 

when fascists keep trying to push you over it! 

Are they the lemmings 

Or are you, Cliff?  

Or are you, Cliff?

Neil: Wow... that was really pretty bad, Rick

Rick: Bad for society when the kids start to get into it!

 

Ode to Rik Mayall by Itwasdestined of the Big Bang Forum (apologies in advance)

Oh Rik

Sometimes it was difficult not to be a "dick"

It really was your trick 

You made the fascists feel quite sick

Are we now lost

Or are you, Rik?

Or are you, Rik?

Neil: Wow... that was really pretty bad, Itwasdestined!

Itwasdestined: Bad for society when the kids forget who Rik was!

Sorry about everything being a bit of a bummer, you know, what with you dying and all. Still, things could've been worse; You could've been me, and ended-up having a really bad time all the time.

So sad to lose this wonderful silly genius. It all started with The Young Ones for me.

"Who needs qualifications? Who cares about Thatcher and unemployment? We can do just exactly whatever we want to do. And you know why? Because we're Young Ones. Bachelor boys. Crazy, mad, wild-eyed, big-bottomed anarchists!"

Ah, Rik!

Immortal in your divine silliness. 

How cruel that so often those who take our breath away should have their own breaths numbered in such mean measure.

You passed through the brittle magic cave of fame immune to its gaudy decoys, laughing at its nonsensical bullshit, and we laughed along with you.

Thank you for making my life less dull.

 

 

The Man Behind The Green Door:  Fish That I Like.

 

Fish that I like.

Piranha, cod, whales, that's the fish right, not the place, I mean the area, not the plaice that's a fish..........er, oh I've put myself off now.....er, oh yeah, and mackerals.

And fish that I don't like.

Er, chubb, bass, any  green fish, like er greenbottles, er octupus and squid.

And the reasons I like these ones are;

Cod is great to eat. You can have it with chips if you want, or you can have it with peas, you could even have it on its own and its quite cheap considering that its dead, right.

And whales are very big. That's about it for whales really, oh and they've got a great hole at the top of their head that they can spray water with, he!

And mackerals are great swimmers.

Well, all fish have to be really otherwise they'd just go and drown right, but mackerals are especially great, otherwise how come they aint extinct?

And if you notice the ones that I don't like right, they've all got one thing in common, haven't they?

Can you spot it?

That's right, they're all crap!

From Bottom:

Richie: What about pin the tail on the donkey?

Eddie: We haven't got a donkey.

Richie: Well, pin the tail on the chicken.

Eddie: We haven't got a tail.

Richie: Oh. Well, pin the sausage on the chicken?

Eddie: We haven't got a chicken.

Richie: Well, pin the sausage on the fridge.

Eddie: Or a pin.

Richie: Sellotape a sausage to the fridge!

Eddie: We haven't got a sausage!

Richie: Put a bit of sellotape on the fridge!

Eddie: It's not much of a game, is it?

Well thingyofbeautifulness,.much that I liked Bottom,  I often thought it rather had too much of the saucepan around the chops at times....but this was something i remembered of the great man....

 

Much hip thrusting that, when I do it looks bloody stupid but in the iliac crests of the Mayall, makes much great comedic sense..

Flash, where have you been?

Where haven't I been? Woof!

(To Baldrick in a dress) Thanks bridesmaid, like the beard, gives me something to hang on to!

How Rik managed to walk in and steal those scenes right under the nose of talent such as Rowan Atkinson, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie and Tony Robinson still staggers me!

Huzzah!

Ironyseapowerness, I was raised on Tom & Jerry and Laurel & Hardy, and never really grew out of the hilariousity of a saucepan in the face gag. I did once post the best 5 mins of slapstick ever made here, namely Bottom, S'out, Hob Nob Fight but, on searching, it seems the BBC have blocked it on YouTube..... boooooooo!
