Television commercials...FFS!... how many women out there go about cleaning floors , cooking for their dinner parties or whatever domestic chores while wearing high heels and plastered in make-up ?

I resent being bombarded by STOOOOOPID , I see enough when i look at a mirror .

Disney is reviving their Duck Tales series. I remember enjoying that show when I was still a young land-lubber. I might decide to add it to my regurlarly schedule mind-numbing routine.

Celebrity Masterchef. For some reason Vic Reeves (very funny but bonkers comedian) is on under his real name of Jim Moir. Every time someone refers to 'Jim' I find myself wondering why they keep talking about Jim when they're looking at Vic :idiot:

Also, Rachel Stevens will be appearing in another episode :love:

I met Jim / Vic at the Edinburgh Fringe when I was working there a few* years ago. Propped up the same bar of an evening... :drinking:

Vic was supposed to be the wacky onstage persona, while Jim is the real-life, sober, rational and responsible person. It would appear from some of my comedian friends that Jim and Vic are now one and the same person, and that whilst Vic might not be as funny as once he was, Jim is a hell of a lot weirder than he was before.
