The Onion is great: whenever I go into DC I try to get a copy of their print edition. The Borowitz Report follows a similar theme and is pretty funny too. Laughing

I read the Onion newspaper whenever I can. Is that just available in US college towns?

Also, thanks for reminding me about Wodehouse! Wooster and Jeeves are hilarious! I just finished Right Ho, Jeeves (free download on Kindle) and it was a hoot. I love when Bertie speaks using bizarre abbreviations, like this one about women: "Old pop Kipling had it right when he said that the f. of the s. is more d. than the m."

Wierd, funny stuff.

Have you seen the brilliant TV version with HUgh Laurie and Stephen FRy- couldn't reccomend it higher.

Watched a couple of episodes, didn't get into it though. Great actors, I think I should have persevered. Wodehouse btw was a major influence on one of my most favorite writers, Jack Vance, whose style and wryness is very reminiscent (to a point).

Thanks for the video, PT!

Fry and Laurie are so good in this. Which is nice, because I'm very tired of House.

Are they both in The Hobbit, or is it just Fry?
