Baumski,

Very funny. Especially the typo. Very appropriate. I know it probably wasn't intended but it makes me think "Woah man". Very poignant. It's got a postcard humour about it, which is right up my alley. Nice one!

Typo! What typo? I deny everything including having EVER made a mistake and correcting it - which I didn't - honest.

Baumski,

Abosultely a spot of bother.

I wish we had a resident illustrator for some of the sketches here.

great stuff,

Phil.

Hi Baum

Nice idea, but i think you could get a much punchier sketch if you cut half of it and got straight to the gag. imho

Cheers

This reminded me somewhat of the Allo Allo "You stupid woman" running gag. Whilst not a bad sketch at all, I did know the tagline before I'd finished it.

Also, although this is a bit picky, the naming of the characters in the scene description is a bit confusing. 'A MAN' is mentioned, this then changes to HENRY when the dialogue starts. 'WIFE' is also mentioned, but this then changes to 'WOMAN' when the dialogue starts. Yet the description also mentions 'WOMAN' with regard to the none speaking part. Does that make sense? I think I've confused myself now. :) In any case it's not a bad sketch at all.
Take care. Steve

Steve,

Nice point - in fact, spot on. What we have here is a clear case of lazy writing which deserves to be picked up on.

Cheers all the same.
