Count Arthur Strong

Twelve of the refugees just would not go into their allotted houses tonight
It was almost dark before I could corner some of them
( hens cannot see well in bad light)
And my frustrations were high as the rain started to fall
I had just about enough by 9 pm
And bellowed out a lusty
" for fucks sake you are all getting on my tits
GO IN!"
My neighbour who was putting out the bins
Chuckled to himself
" language Timothy!" He trilled out
Ps
I watched the new sit com Count Arthur Strong tonight and laughed like a drain
I love it
And have a strange crush on the classical actor Rory Kinnear
Who plays straight man Michael
The expression and the turban had me in fits

  2. I adore the interplay between Arthur and Michael...... Watched over by the odd bods from the cafe

    2. P.S. I remember Rory Kinnear's father (Roy?) bashing a tin tray over his head whilst singing, "She'll be coming round the Mountain". Anyone else?

    5. Yes, it's funny what passed for entertainment in those days....
      I thought CAS wouldn't work on the telly, but I'm pleasantly surprised. I prefer the radio version though - the pictures are better.
      Rory Kinnear is the spit of his dad though.

    6. I think you are probably right, John.

  5. This sitcom hasn't reached this side of the world, alas. Rory Kinnear is the spit of his dad, Wand's right.

  6. I listen to the radio show quite often... he's a hoot. I didn't know he'd made that step up/down to TV.

  7. Thank goodness it's not just me that loves the TV version of Count Arthur Strong - I hear there's to be a second series.

  8. Another massive Count Arthur Strong fan household here. We're both reminded of Howard's mum in the mix of failed airs & graces and general confusion.
