Great hairy greetings! Welcome, welcome to your Fuzzy Friday open thread. I thought this week I'd share a few links to some things that make me laugh.

If you'd care to peek over the adorable ginger hairball I'll get started.

Meantime, this is an open thread so make of it what you will.  

Growing up listening to public radio in the USA I was introduced not only to the finest of American comedy which I believe reached its peak with Bob & Ray, but also to the well from which all the beautiful absurdist comedy of Britain flows, namely: The Goon Show. I used to tape The Goon Show from the radio and when I stumbled upon albums of the glorious Goons in my favorite record shops I snatched those up instantly. I bought dozens of tapes. The Goons had me hooked.

Their shows influenced generations of comedians, Billy Connolly, Monty Python, Douglas Adams, Frankie Boyle, Dara O'Briain ...

I'm addicted. The more British comedy I dig up the more I want. YouTube is packed with brilliant shows clips from official channels, whole shows swiped from DVDs like The IT Crowd:
Aaagh! More, more, more!
Mitchell and Webb!

Alright, enough already! What are you laughing at?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
