Green Nose Day

Recession? What recession? As I sit here awash with Canadian export dollars from my recent trip, my mind has naturally turned to what every good meedja type thinks of when they've got a bob or two - cocaine. No, no, er, no, that's not right, er I meant - chariddy.

Long term readers of this drivel will recall that I held a Green Nose Day back in 2007 to raise money for the last Red Nose Day. So before I'm whisked off in the stretched limo to slave my petooty off and hobknob with the fromage de la fromage of British comedy at TV Centre, I'm giving you an opportunity to lend your support.

Here's how it works. For every comment appended to this post today, I'll donate a gleaming new oncer to Comic Relief. So whaddya waiting for? Get commenting! And let's see if we can beat the 2007 total of 40 smackers!

This makes me soooooo green with envy, I will leave five not so crispy oner's at the normal drop off point [in brown a envelope] next Wednesday as that's when my social security cheque arrives.

Eastcliff Richard said...

Aha - a pair of balls now! Er, no, make that three.

I read that Canada was taking over from the San Fernando Valley as the centre of the Porn industry.

Is there any truth that you were employed as a fluffer on your recent trip ?.

Eastcliff Richard said...

There's not much future in fluffing these days, due to the increasingly widespread use of Viagra in the industry. So that one doesn't, er, stand up 10:21.

Blast! I've done meself out of another quid!

Adem said...

Glad to see you back from Canada. I spent a month there in 2003 travelling around from West to East. Very nice country indeed.

Eastcliff Richard said...

Yes, it is a mighty fine country Adem. And the people are soooooo nice!

Bugger. I've done it again!

Welcome back old chap we missed you but our aim will improve with time. Green nose day now that is a serious cold if you got green candles, must have been something you picked up in Canada.

Your posts are the one joy in this wasteland. A shame it costs you a quid but look forward to your future offerings.

Eastcliff Richard said...

Why thank you, 12:01.

Er, billhooks. There goes another sov.

Richard said...

I err, oh bugger! I had something really witty and interesting to say but then I remembered I live in Broadstairs. Damm

Richard said...

Oh hang on a minute, its all coming back to me now, it had something to do with the mating habits of snails and how they get confused by discarded bacon rind. No its gone again, damm!

You're a generous chap, ECR.

Richard said...

Come on Dicky... I will if you will! (or is the jet lag still getting the better of you) Sorry, there was something I was supposed to remember about snail rind.

Richard said...

Bloody hell ........... thats £37.50 I have to cough up already ( I am not sure I am doing myself any favours here.

Richard said...

My nose is bigger than your nose (ha)! 39 and counting!

whitewash day that is what i fear monday 16th will be - did you know you are used in evidence for our leader's defence, you must get up his nose - that's my contribtion for red nose day! Bit snotty that would be though!

Richard said...

Anonymous... sod off this is costing me and the bloke in the big house serious money here (sorry ECR). but if you want to empty your bag then offer some wonger (sorry once again ECR but I felt I had to intervene) Where have my lovely snails gone now?
Shit I am running out off prehensile mini limbs to keep track of my debt...off with the socks!!!

Richard said...

Please, please please nobody else respond to this blog otherwise, in order to honour my fool hardy boast of 150% I will have to start selling additional body parts (how I miss Mr big toe two). So stop being so generous with my flesh, unless you are prepared to pay ( my pretty). Oooops

Oh, it's ok, I can see it from here...thank you

Richard said...

Alright this may have only cost ECR 34 quid but this is well on the way to costing me bloody loads (£52 to be precise). So stop posting inane comments now, or else the snails get it!!!!!!

Eastcliff Richard said...

Lumme - this is going to break the bank! Must wire Mr Ceaucescu (no relation) for more roubles.

Arse!

Let the snails have it, I say.

Brian White, Head of 'Allowing The Airport To Do What The F**k They Want Department', now has a new nickname.

Because he is so far up Matt Clarkes arse, that all you can see of him

Bertie Biggles said...

Fearing your newly strained financial status might be affected by your impetuously generous nature, Dickie old chap, I was loathe to post here and cost you another pound! Well done, anyway! Let me know if you need a Red Cross parcel next week.

Michael Child said...

Well done Richard old chap, my children have discovered that this years red noses double as bouncing balls.

Richard said...

Michael
Which Dick are you referring too, this is going to cost ECR a small fortune and me one and a half times a small fortune (and I don't live anywhere near any millionaires)! ( Although there is a lovely squirrel that pops into the garden from the park next door).

Glad you're back safely from Canada Eastcliff. Glad to help you give another oncer to a good cause. BTW do look out for the Edinburgh Woolen Mill stuff if you haven't already.

Nice one ECR....

c. Ice Road Truckers.
Or are you really the Florida-based porn director, Cezar Capone, who offered to pay Palin 2 million bigones to appear in an adult film production? Has got my vote ;)
