Sup's Bits of Fry & Laurie
This is a mere infantling of a web page. Indeed, sir was right in noting the not-up-to-snuffness of said site, and one believes one shall not fail in one's duty to impress sir in future with an HTMLish creativeness of supreme twinkling and wonderment, and as of yet has not yet been on seen on your so-called Earth planet. Enjoy now what you may, then, and check back periodically, kind web surfer.
(Stephen, as woman) The local pizza delivery boy came round and I took one look and I said, never mind the super supreme, I'll take you, just as you are... thin and crispy. That's how we met. You could have knocked me down with a court order when I discovered he was my son.

(Hugh) As I travel round the country, giving speeches and replacing lengths of guttering in high buildings, I have become increasingly distressed at the ignorance and prejudice that seems to surround the whole business of sucking. This used to be a dynamic nation; a nation of skill and know-how, of determination and vision. The rest of the world used to look to us for a lead on sucking, and we were happy, proud I should say, to give it. Now, well you can ask the average Briton to suck something for you in the street, even something quite small, like a hedge, and like as not he'll just shrug his shoulders and move on. That's sad. Terribly, terribly sad.

(Hugh) Course, it's well known that Shakespeare didn't really exist. And that if he did, he was lots of people. And they were all women, and that all his plays were written by Alan Bleasdale. And that Shakespeare shot Kennedy, and that Lee Harvey Oswald was nothing but a pansy. They don't put that on Newsnight, though, do they?
