Friday Afternoon Humor

This is some funny stuff. I can't believe it actually aired on television. Maybe it didn't, but it's funny anyway.

Geoffrey (to viewers): " It's time for us all to go now, but don't forget to get your twangers out and play with your balls."

That's some funny shit.

Seriously though, it's a left wing conspiracy to erode our morals and values. At least the Republican in me thinks so.

Thanks for the link, Matt. LMAO. It takes me back to my childhood....<.p>

Rainbow *was* a genuine kids' show in the UK and I spent many a happy hour plucking my twanger in front of the TV while watching it.

What I'm not sure of is whether this was actually broadcast on the original kids show, or whether it was a later spoof. Does anyone remember?

This is funny, yeah this was not the original kids show it was a comedy sketch after the show was scrapped in the 80's and shown on late night TV. I have a British friend who saw it and is sitting here and told me... good stuff.
