éclair


This is one of the best comedy lines I have heard
Spoken by Victoria Wood way back in the 1980s
She plays a nervous woman collecting information in a street survey

"Here's my ID. Yes, I do look rather startled.
It was taken in a photo booth and someone had just poked an éclair through the curtain"

  2. It was probably Jenny Eclair. She would do anything in those days, just for a little attention.

  6. I wonder if she ever owned an Volkswagen... she would have had her initials on the front. Better than a vanity number any day!

  7. Nothing like a startled ID. In one of my drivers licence shots, I had my eyes closed for ten years. As if asleep.

  9. I like Jenny too but you can have too much of a good thing.
