Hilarious Hump Day

A few months ago I was on Elizabeth Spann Craig’s blog, Mystery Writing is Murder, and she had a youtube clip up of Mitchell and Webb doing a skit on an author and his agent having a brainstorming session about the book the author was writing. I was hilarious to the point of bringing tears to the eyes, and I shared it here on Free Spirit as well. Hey if you missed it and want to indulge in a knee-slapping, side-slapping extra couple of minutes, just click here. There was also one I posted about a “Job interview from Hell”, equally funny, if you missed that one and have the time to lolligag around for – I think it’s just over a minute long – some super dooper silliness, click here.

Obviously, after first exposure to this delightful duo, I got caught with the M&W bug and have been checking out lots of their skits ever since. Marvelous comics, the dry British humour is outstanding. So anyhowzit, today for your mid-week jocular pick-me-up, enjoy this two minute poke at homeopathic medicine … and no, I do not poo-poo homeopathy, it does serve a wonderful wholistic purpose when used properly and at the appropriate time for the right reasons, but … well, just have a listen see, tee hee …

Okay, blog dismissed, hope you had a few giggles and will click away with a smile on your face and have a wonderful Hump Day, y’all.

    Hee Haw – too funny! I actually use some homoepathic remedies, but this is taking it JUST and TAD too far, lol.

    Hahahahaaaa … good one. These guys crack me up. Almost a modern day Abbott and Costello kind of duo. Thanks for the yuks, Old Silly!

    That’s funny! I will have to go back and watch the others when I have a few minutes! Happy Hump Day!

    Wait. I think he was one of my mom’s doctors at the hospital in Louisiana.

    That witch doctor I went to down south warned me about these guys. Without my magic rocks in one pocket and my anti-homopathic powder in the other pocket, I won’t go near these guys. Thank goodness a medicine man lives in the tent across from me and I just stocked up on Dr. Johns snake bite, cure-all formula.

    Emergency homeopathy. How hilarious! Loved the video, Marvin. Thanks for the laugh. 😀

    That about sums up homeopathic medicine!

    I feel sorry for the other guy, the author. Editors are not like the one in the skit, are they? LOL. Very funny, indeed. I like the homeopathy video as well. I like the part when the doctor drew a longer lifeline on the patient’s palm, hoping that the patient would live longer. Tehehe.

    Marvin, you’re so bad, you tempt me away to watch Youtube and help me waste the download time….But so funny!
