        With all the depressing virus stuff happening you need to find ways to stay positive. Having a good laugh helps so here are some videos to tickle your funny bone.

        From Britain: The Two Ronnies – Swedish Made Simple

        From the U.S.: Carol Burnett – No Frills Airline

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2-xcwNku8c

        From Canada: Wayne & Shuster – Shakespearean Baseball and Scruffi & Schmutz

        Another part of feeling well is exercise – which you’ll need if you watch too many videos like the above. While it’s not a comedy your family is bound to laugh if you try the dance moves. 🙂

        Thanks for that.  The Wayne & Shuster one will not play, it says “Video unavailable”, but if their treatment of Shakespeare is anything like their audio sketch “Rinse the blood off my toga”, which is a sendup of Julius Caesar, it would be hilarious.  Two of my favourite bits from that sketch:

        “My name is Mark Anthony.  I just made a speech, I said “Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your ears.”  “Yeah?  Whatcha got in that sack?”  “EARS !!”

        “Gimme a martinus”  “You mean martini” “If I want two, I’ll ask for them”

        Go to http://www.canadianshakespeares.ca/multimedia/video/baseball.cfm. You’ll see a link to the video bottom/left. It’s a .ASX file so I right-clicked on the link, chose Open Link in New Tab (I use Firefox) then used VLC to open it:

        Hope this helps…

        Thanks Rick, that worked.  It’s good to get away from the bits and bytes occasionally.
