Seeing today's poll results I was reminded of Mick booting Joan Kirner in the arse whilst intoning, "This is for stuffing things up so badly it looks like we're going to get Jeff Kennett as a Premier! Sub Kirner and Kennett for Rudd and Abbott and it still works perfectly after 18 years!

hi everyone this is my first post ever so hello. I was only 10 when the late show finished but i remember watching it every saturday. I remember a lot of different sketches and loved every minute of it, just reminds me of being young. I remember watching the videos til they wore out and now the dvd and realising that at the time a lot of things were just going over my head.

My main memories are from the second series with the song mix ups at the end for some reason. I wish they would repeat the show on pay tv or something.

On the Best & Worst of Red Faces ep #2 DVD, It has Fred Sleep (who appeared on Pot Luck Toilet break) playing the goanna (same performance), and Anna Spano, who badly sings "True Blue/Love", which was also badly sung by the Nelligan Sisters on Pot Luck Toilet Break.

Scary.

I got on a train today and spotted a man wearing a Late Show cap. It looked very... navy :-?.

Was it any of you? Ooh, I could make this like the creepy personals column in the MX!
"To the man with the tinted sunnies wearing the vintage Late Show cap today on the Franger line. I got off at Parliament with you. I didn't say anything, because frankly, that's proper and correct, but if you're on this forum, then I will now. Hi!".
Are you castin' aspersions on the habeebee?

My mother just informed me that she's lost her "good scissors."

Snav was wearing his Late Show cap and sunnies today. He was loitering outside the Doncaster Apple store in them all morning field testing a new pick-pocketing technique.

I just sold something on eBay for $48 and I immediately thought of Tony Martin's monologue about going to a Neil Diamond concert.
"Neil Diamond- forty eight bucks.....good thinking! He'll do crunchy granola....Dannanah hah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nanna-narnaah......Guards, seize him!"

As per Tony on twitter: first the Gillette 3000 sketch becomes closer to reality, now the Drive Thru Church.

We too, had some 'good scissors' in the house when we were growing up. Mum's 'good scissors' were only to be used for her sewing, or cutting out wrapping paper for birthday or Christmas presents.

They were off limits for anything involving school projects, or cutting out newspaper articles.
