The Now some of us are not so funny as others Show

On this evening's Now Show Mitch Benn (yay!) sang a very good song which was pure Jake Thackray. Let me assure younger readers that once upon a time Jake was very attractive to the intellectual sixth former. Now, I appreciate the French influence and it's clear that Mitch has listened to him lots.

Poor nice-but-dim Marcus Brigstocke treated us to another of his tedious anti-religion rants. If I were not a believer, I would ignore Dawkins and all his boring acolytes and read Stevie Smith's anti-church poem How Do You See?.
