Oh just buy it, 31 July 2005
If you are the sort of faintly unhinged and nonsensical person who likes their comedy equally unhinged and nonsensical, a la Reeves and Mortimer, buy this now, but don't expect to get your life back. You'll wander around, muttering about the Spirit of Jazz leaping from a minim, or Uncle Pedro the fisherman who only fishes "in my miiiind", or Tommy the back-of-the-spoon pigmy. You'll answer "It is written" to everything. You'll sing about Mr Rogers the Drum 'n' Bass Cobra, or "blackbird's head on a raven's torso - can't really tell with that one, it's a subtle one". This is screamingly funny comedy. Unfortunately, it is also highly addictive, so if you are the sort of weak person who succumbs easily to obsessive, whey-faced quoting, best steer clear and go back to your humdrum existence, coward.
The interview with Danny Wallace is cracking too: "That dog had the longest snout in the world. It was like a leg." "Maybe that's why he died." "Maybe he was an anteater, and we were giving him dog food when we should have been giving him ants."
