Goon Show wont die while there are people like me around... [Jan. 22nd, 2009|01:18 pm]
Stephan
Had a perfect Goon Show moment at work (in the air-conditioning). I wish Secombe or Milligan had been alive to hear this...

Work colleage: (Preparing to attend an off-site event) "I've got the time for the train, it's 3:03."
Myself: (Sorry, it was too good to resist) "Three-oh-three! It must be a bullet train!"

If only there had been a band nearby to do the trumpet "Ta-dah" followed by the crash of cymbals and then Seacombe to say "I don't wish to know that."

I do this sort of thing all the time, much to my co-worker's frustration.

I asked one of the guys for a network cable. He asked how long I needed. I replied "Permanently"

Heehee!!

Sounds like the old trick the railway employees would play on newcomers. They'd tell the young chap "Go to the storeroom and ask the clerk for a long weight."

If you're around a computer, you can always use these:

Instant Rimshot

Virtual Rimshots (Includes a Laugh Track)

Thanks!

I'll definitely bookmark those. Can't be used at work though; our PC audio needs to be set on mute unless we're listening to recordings of incoming call centre conversations. Even then we're encouraged to use headphones.

(Nice to see again the animated tongue on the wolf emoticon)
