Genesis 27:11

<br />

Alan Bennett in Beyond the Fringe, circa 1960, with a brilliant parody of a vacuous Sunday sermon. Here we have the vague uplift, the vague exortation to ponder, ummmmm, something, the vague attempt to make our everyday experiences seem more... more, well, meaningful, really, if you like, I suppose. Every morning on BBC Radio 4 at 7.50, you can hear a little homily in much the same vein, but in this case totally unironic. Every speaker booked for 'Thought for the Day' should be required to watch this clip the night before and at least consider calling in sick.
