Performing Micturition Simultaneously to Laughter.

Well OK, that's not the usual expansion of PMSL, but it comes to the same thing!

Earlier on in this thread, I suggested:

It would never happen in a million years, but I'd love to see Tom Waits on the show.


Tom Waits was interviewed by, erm, himself in The Independent's 'Arts & Books Review' supplement today, and it's proper QI - a superb read.

Included within its reams are such interesting (and familiar to everyone here) nuggets as the Siamese twin who was spared conviction due to his other twin being innocent, the barnacle's relatively huge penis and early violin strings being made from catgut (well alright, we all have our off moments). He also mentions the Chevy Nova car not selling too well in Latin America due to "no va" translating into Spanish as "no go", and tells a story of how a team of engineers raised a sunken Japanese freighter from a the bottom of Tokyo harbour by injecting its hull with millions of ping-pong balls.

I rest my case.

Q: What's the most curious record in your collection?

A: In the Seventies, a record company in LA issued a record called The Best of Marcel Marceau. It had 40 minutes of silence followed by applause and it sold really well. I like to put it on for company. It really bothers me, though, when people talk through it.


:D I'm in love.

The page behind that link wonders how the Donald Duck story came to the attention of the Patent Office. Well, that's easy, the Netherlands were one of the first countries to translate and publish the Donald Duck comic magazine, and it quickly became a household staple throughout the postwar Netherlands. This success encouraged the Dutch publishers to write and draw their own stories, and they achieved such quality, that the Dutch publishers became one of the few foreign publishers to acquire the right to write and publish their own DD stories from the WDC. At any rate, the DD was read by every member of the family, children and adults alike, so the Dutch patent office staff probably would have read the translated story personally, if not all of them, then likely most of them.

Stefan.

What about the tub of lard that stood in for (was it Roy Hattersley) on HIGNFY? OK - it didn't contribute a lot but when it did it was bloody funny.

Paul Merton on QI maybe? Although he's more funny than full of facts. And is there a thing about bad blood between him & Stephen over Angus Deayton, or am I making that up?
