Theme Thursday Post - "Ball"

How interesting. Even though I've spent the last week (two weeks?) engrossed in football (soccer) and tennis, my first thought on reading this week's theme had nothing to do with sports. The first thing that came to mind was The Secret Policeman's Ball. In case you aren't familiar with this gem (actually a series of gems, shows produced to benefit Amnesty International), I've embedded a sample skit below...




....and the second thing that came to mind, predictably enough, was The Secret Policeman's Other Ball.

Disclaimer: I recommend that you watch this second video either alone or in the company of a tolerant friend/mate. It made me howl. Really. Consider yourself warned.



Maybe I had simply had enough of sports for the time being, and I needed a little comic relief. In any event, I ended up spending quite some time working my way through YouTube's Secret Policeman collection, and I'm glad I did. Dare I say it? I had a ball.

We have the LP at home. It always slightly confused me. Not as much as Pink Floyd, however.

Heh, heh! I didn't see the comedy parts of the Secret Policeman's Ball (and the Other Ball) until years later; I had the LPs and they were mostly all the music acts. These are great!

Uh now that was excellent! And I agree with Tony, some of the World Cup games have been comedy sport!
