Golden Globes – Ricky Gervais on engendering international relations

I’m not a follower of the comings (if you will indulge the ambiguity) and goings of those in the entertainment world. To me, spending time learning about people whose primary aims in life appear to be adornment and the pursuit of bodily perfection – clearly at the expense of anything in the character, morality and integrity departments – is a superlative example of time wastage.

However, the attached video link was brought to my attention by an informed sauce and I felt moved to comment….

I reckon, half of Hollywood’s set are wondering if they ought to invite a live comedian next year. The other half will be phoning their lawyers as soon as they get the straws out of their noses.

I think the confusion came when rumours emerged that Gervais was a Cockney – and the organisers got completely the wrong idea of the evening’s entertainment, thinking it was maybe some kind of anatomical anomaly cum ventriloquist act.

I could have sworn I heard one of the actresses exclaim, “Oh look! A talking dildo!”….

Out of the mouths of babes..

About Freud Fission Chips

Despite the banality of the name, FFC has led an intensely varied life. Grateful for surviving almost three years as a 'troepie' (soldier for non-South African Readers) in the Angolan war, he determined to wring as much out of life as possible. Currently providing Business Analysis services, trading on the stock market and developing web pages to pay the bills, FFC also dabbles in wildlife, landscape and people photography, writing, and far too many interests for his own good. He has also travelled extensively in southern Africa (working on the sound theory that a moving target is more dificult to hit). These peregrinations also include over 1500kms on foot through some of the worlds most spectacular scenery. It hasn't all been plain sailing, beer and skittles, and endless beds of roses... Chief amongst the prerequisites for surviving Africa, with its mind-bending characteristics, is an appropriate sense of humour.... So, for now, he will be recounting the amusing among the annoying, the frustrating wrapped in the funny and extracting the mirth from the melancholy... Oh yes, there might be some alliteration too.
