The BBC's "One Ronnie"

A family member passed on this link to a sketch from the BBC comedy show “The One Ronnie”.  I thought it was pretty funny, if you like British humour maybe you’ll like it as well.  Ronnie Corbett, recently turned 80, has been a British commedian since the 1960s.  In this sketch he returns his Blackberry to the grocer because it’s no longer working.  Corbett is the short one.

Once you watch that, YouTube will give you links to Monty Python sketches, Star Wars and Star Trek scene remakes, and other funny things that will keep you distracted from whatever it is that you’re supposed to be doing for at least an hour (that’s where the blame goes for the brevity of this particular column).

Good Night, and Happy New Year
