Think I've been overdosing on Partridge recently as he's started popping up in my dreams. Last night he was boasting about how all his furniture was bought from a local pub that closed down, so you couldn't get it on the high street. He was particularly proud of his massive mirror.

This has genuinely made me laugh.

Watching the "Comfortably Numb" bit from The Wall, I was reminded of "REDACTED's addiction to fascism" from open books. Chuckled.

Not oft-forgotten but I must admit was brilliantly funny.

GOLLY, AN ALIEN JUDGE

Just terrific all-round. The most inane thing possible for a grown woman to draw, a totally shit drawing, the out of date use of 'Golly' and the camera work as Alan moves to politely extract himself from the conversation.

"[listing notable things about Brighton]...the great, great long history of homosexuality. Many people think it only started in the eighties, but it was actually started by Oscar Wilde, back in the nineteenth century, who'd come down here with one his chaps and stay at the metropolitan hotel for the weekend."

Odd request, but can anyone recall Alan referencing ‘foxes’?

I vaguely remember him talking about foxes messing with his spice garden, and a few mentions of fox hunting, but I’m struggling to pinpoint the specific sources.

Thank you for your service.

Fox hunting - series 2 of MMM, episode 1 I think.

And the foxes fucking in the herb garden was in I, Partridge.

The delivery in the audiobook was great. Something along the lines of "... and, not to be crude, they were FUCKING in my herb garden."
