Hardy and Laurel

Pure slapstick but so funny. I used to laugh so hard at them. It is said that if in your old age you develop a liking for macabre or slapstick humour, you may be prone to alzheimer's disease. I am safe then, as I have always liked both.

  3. I seem to be hedging my bets. Again.

    1. EC, my brother and myself used to emulate the slapstick from The Three Stooges, apparently without injuring each other.

  4. They were so funny but so accident prone.
    Funny I once liked Benny Hill, I laughed my head off but no longer find him funny.

    1. Merle, it is so long since I have seen Benny Hill. The theme music alone makes me laugh. I still like the song, Ernie, Who Drove the Fastest Milk Cart in the West.

  5. That was quite funny, I haven't seen any Laurel and Hardy for a very long time. I remember Benny Hill and his Fastest Milk Cart in the West though, I'll see if that's on youtube.

    1. River, I 100% sure Ernie will be on Youtube. I might do it as a Musical Monday. It is a fun song. I have one already scheduled for this Monday.

    2. Yes it's there in several different versions.

    3. Or you could use the clip River and forever been be cast as Benny Hill lover.

      No, I am used to disgrace. I will do it.

    1. Margaret, I wonder if there was some 'down time' in the show. Like we remember the episodes better than what they were.

    1. Grace, I suppose there were stunt men used in much of the show.

  8. That was good fun. The sad thing is that such skits wouldn't be allowed these days what with all the health and safety nonsense. They were way ahead of their time.

    1. Ah now Craig, at my workplace I have seen injury levels drop from a high level to almost zero over the last 30 years and while at times things seem to go too far, when you see results like that, it is very hard to argue against health and safety regulations. Interestingly I noticed work sites on the continent don't seem nearly as strict as those here and in Britain.
