“On The Front Line And In Your Face”

Because some people may not have ever seen The Day Today or know of the genius of Chris Morris:

It’s the mix of surrealism and seriousness that appeals to me so much. Morris’ newsman persona captures the mix of the ridiculous and the self-importance of news media, decades before that combination reached the epic proportions of today. I’m pretty sure this show is out on DVD in the U.K. now, but is sadly unavailable in the U.S. It’s a shame; this may be some of my favorite comedy ever.
