Quote of the Day: Bill Bailey

April 21, 2010

Aldous Huxley took the drug mescaline and then chronicled his experience in the book The Doors of Perception. Now, I don’t actually think that’s the first thing he wrote: he probably wrote ‘my brain is melting’ ten thousand times, but it was the book that the critics latched on to.

I was listening to Bill Bailey do mind-wandering versions of the classic three blokes walk into a pub-jokes when Bill Bailey walked in by my seat towards the bar keep.

– May I have this alligator wrapped around my ancles while I enjoy a drink?

– Sure, can I pour you a beer?

– Actually, I’m not supposed to be drinking at the moment, I’m working you see. I’m a professional comedian, I’m part of a gag right now, you know, it’s the huh, it’s hilarious really, you know the “three blokes walk into a pub”-joke, and I, apparently self-consciously, noticed that I mimed the bunny rabbit ears ” ” when I said that. ” ” There! I did it again! [Pointless to do mime in writing really, but whatever]. Anyhoo, I’m a member of the three blokes-ensemble, I’m working, well, I do it for charity really.

– So, you didn’t come here for a drink?

– No, I’m just the vessel of this nonsense of a text, the sole purpose of my existence is to enclothe this cold matter of black scriblings on a shiny white computer screen, witnessed by monkeys through-out the interblag (or so I’ve been told it’s real name is, this monstrous “thing”, with bunny rabbit ears, the INTERBLAG!)

– Right… You done yet?

– No, I havn’t explained the alligator yet. It’s fantastic you know.

Says the author from the corner of the pub, with bunny rabbit ears:

– Cheers, and click the wikipedia links, wikipedia has some interesting reading.
