A Wee Shout Out to Spike Milligan, a Man with a Sense of the Ridiculous…


I thought I’d begin by reading a poem by Shakespeare, but then I thought, why should I? He never reads any of mine. (Spike Milligan)

A Silly Poem – by Spike Milligan

Said Hamlet to Ophelia,
I’ll draw a sketch of thee,
What kind of pencil shall I use?
2B or not 2B? 

One of the best books given to me as a child was ‘Unspun Socks From A Chicken’s Laundry’ by Spike Milligan. I still have it. It remains a firm favourite and always makes me smile. If you get the chance, pick up a copy. You won’t regret it. Promise.

Thanks for reminding me of one of the zaniest comics ever to have existed. Spike Milligan is a legend. “I’m a hero with coward’s legs.” was another of his quotes. Hehe Funny man. 🙂

I never heard of him. But, now I definitely need to check him out!

WIM2S – you must get the book ‘Badjelly the Witch’ by Spike for Simples. Failing that, get the DVD. It’s brilliant. He had the most amazing imagination.
