Always Funny

Heh heh.

It's funny because Costello gets so furious so quickly. Very American, that - the only Brit I can imagine doing it as well would be Tony Hancock.

I also liked Principal Skinner's attempt on The Simpsons, where he blew the sketch immediately by saying "Not the pronoun but a player with the unlikely name of Who, is on first."

Of course it's American. It's about baseball. I was just describing this the other day to some Dutch colleagues and they couldn't get it at all.

Brit said...

It's an old music hall routine, surely?

The baseball bit is optional.
