Having recently acquired a DVD of the Acorn Antiques series, I felt highly cheered after watching it last night.
I'd forgotten how funny this plotless series is with it's wobbly scenery, lack of continuity and hilarious acting! Here's a sample of the dialogue between Babs (owner of Acorns Antiques) and Mrs Overall (the tea lady)
Babs: Here I am blabbing away about my own troubles and I never asked you about your husband's car crash.
Mrs O: Oh he's dead Miss Babs. In fact I was going to ask you if I could have a couple of hours off on Thursday for the funeral.
Babs: Of Course. Just pop back at five for the hoovering. What happened?
Mrs O: His heart stopped beating.
Babs: Oh no.
Mrs O: Yes, well, sometimes that's God's way of telling you you're dead. Not to worry, Bingo tonight.
Hehe - a few titters certainly help ease the winter blues! I've yet to see the musical version, though I do have a copy on DVD. Can't wait!
What has made YOU laugh lately?
