Elsie wins the Spanish Lottery

by Robert Popper on September 4, 2015 · 0 comments

Back in 2009, I received a letter from a ‘Mr Don Luis Lopez’ claiming I’d won the Spanish lottery. It gave a telephone number, which I called – as Robin Cooper – and it resulted in a series of quite mental phone calls which I made for the BBC

Well, today I received a letter from a Mr ‘Antonio Lucas’ also claiming I’d won the Spanish lottery, so I called again. And… it’s the same chap! Anyway, this time I was ‘Mrs Elsie Drake’, a 104-year old woman.

I will call over the next few days as the great-great-grandson, and see what occurs. So watch this space.

Ah… the good old days

This is so awful for every reason. But also so fantastic. But also so awful…

My favourite is the thin guy with glasses and bow tie at 06:26. Who is he?! Update: thanks all – yes, he played Adrian Mole. I thought I recognised him. Rolf Harris though, eh?

I’ve posted some great comedy stuff made by Darren Dutton before. Well, he’s outshone himself this time with this lovely, very silly, rural funny.

This makes me want to live in a cave

Here’s ex-Blue Peter presenter, Simon Groom, destroying an Elvis classic. Stick around for the weirdly rehearsed chat afterwards. Just skip to 01:02.

A Blue Peter badge to Chuck Thomas for this horror.

Well, this bloke is just great. His name’s Peter Parsons, and well, I really don’t know what else to say…

And while you’re here, you might like this one too.

I’ve expressed my love for the amazing Ross Lee on this site many a time. And here’s another reason why my love just increases.

If you still haven’t heard the funniest prank album ever (by Sir Ross) just do it now.

Thanks to Greg Scott for sending me this.

The suspense music from 1:20 onwards kills me.

Thanks to @DavePiggott for this find.

There is just no excuse for this behaviour….

Thanks, Steven Hill, for these twin horrors.
