See title.

Saw this collection of misheard names on Tumblr that for all the world could've been cut characters from Brass Eye:

With apologies to the excellent reporter concerned, I still get the giggles every time "Riz Lateef" appears on my telly-box.

The ironic thing is, I think that one would have been too obvious for Morris to have invented...


EDIT: OMG: just googled to double-check the spelling of her name, and then childishly typed in Riz Lateef Rizla Teeth into Google as a follow-up, only for it to say:
Did you mean Riz Lateef Riz Lateef
It knows... it knows...!

The return of the excellent Endeavour this evening investigating a series of murders in a public swimming pool.

The woman on the desk is annoyed at one point by an officer asking if there were usually a lot of deaths. "In 1959 nobody died, in 1960 nobody died, in 1961..."

Ah, was just going to post that myself. Had to pause it and explain to Mrs Alberon why I had just cracked up.

Yes! That was a wonderful moment, even the delivery was a match to  Coogan's. Has to be a homage surely?[nb]Didn't notice if she was in possession of a word puzzle, bur Morse does crosswords so I'm counting that ;-)[/nb]

There's absolutely no way that wasn't deliberate.

Josh Rogan-Lamb is an exquisite jewel of a funny name.

Weirdly enough, I was just watching a new episode of Endeavour on Youtube (I know but I'm feeling a bit cold and sick and am in bed and fancied something unchallenging and cosy), anyway, I was watching it and it's partly set in a swimming baths, so I immediately thought about that and then, well, a few scenes later, that very thing is clearly referenced.

Oh fuck this, I have really fucked the fucking links up. 

Fuck it, let's just Colin.

I've been listening to Down the Line, and a lot of that has Morrisesque tinges.

Was re-re-re-re-re(etc.)-watching the Drugs episode of Brass Eye last night and had a rather horrifying revelation: several of the promulgators of the fake-news websites that seemed to help get our current president elected (and related ones, such as the one taken apart in this interview by a man I normally despise but must give credit in this case - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhxhpongsB0) have defended their actions by saying that their ruses were designed to fall apart with the slightest amount of actual fact-checking, that they exist to test the credulity of their marks in the media (social or otherwise) - which is pretty much exactly what CM intended with his hoax celebrity interviews and media pranks.  Which kind of sent me reeling a bit, particularly since I've been livid over the fake-newsers in the days leading up to the election and the endless days which followed.  I mean, can I continue to adore CM's punking of the lazily credulous and the easily-led while hating these contemporary semi-equivalents without being utterly hypocritical?  What would/does the man himself have to say about such things?  Does this merely prove his point in a major way and show that we, as a society, have learned nothing in the last two, post-BE decades (not that the majority of people - in the States, at least - are even aware of his work )?  Or, perhaps, should I just stop getting stoned before indulging in satire-watching?
