Punny

My poor husband knows when I’ve gotten behind & then catch up on The Bugle because puns WILL slip out. Be warned of this known adverse reaction.

Best show ever!

Love the satire and wordplay. Andy is a GENIUS!

mikeyvama ,

It’s better than uncontrolled weeping…

The British comedian/commentator Andy Zaltzman and his guests discuss current events in Andy’s shed. Ok, usually the guests aren’t actually in the shed with him, but the show does have the feel of a casual conversation one might have over a beer with friends, provided those friends are incredibly witty and well-informed. Following current events can leave one with the crippling sense that the world is incomprehensible, chaotic, barbaric, place. Shows like this will not dispel that sense, but they show you the humorous side and make you laugh. That sure beats the alternative!
