(I challenge you not to be happy and grinning like a fool by the end of this post *1*.)
I would like to bring to your attention a piece of sheer television genius on BBC2 at the moment: “How To Start Your Own Country” (Wednesday evenings, 10 pm). The man really is starting his own country. In his flat. In London. All I can say is, go to the site, watch the series if you can, and try not to pee your pants laughing.
Watch the National Anthem. Please. You have been warned though, the tune is probably as catchy as the jingle from “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, or the “Hate Something” Honda advert. I was humming it all through dinner.
We watched the show last night even though it meant missing most of the pilot for “Lost” on C4. That is how good it is.
Now, if you will excuse me, I am off to take my oath of citizenship. *2*.
