Sad news for the Brits... And it's goodnight from him...

The greatest TV in history is being made right now. The worst TV in history is being made right now.

Sad news for the Brits... And it's goodnight from him...

Ronnie Barker is dead :(

Huge fan of the man and his work. Porridge is such a perfect damn sit-com.

My condolences, Alonzo. If this man is partially responsible for your gagas, then he must have been a funny man.

Well said Alonzo.....I grew up with Porridge and Open All Hours, Ronnie Baker was an exceptional comic actor...........Watching the Two Ronnies on saturday nights used to make my face hurt from laughing.........Just found these two for starters.............

The man who invented the zip fastener was today honoured with a lifetime peerage. He'll now be known as the Lord of the Flies.
The toilets at a local police station have been stolen. Police say they have nothing to go on.

LOL.......Sadly missing you already Mr Barker.......

Yeah, Porridge rarely gets the props it deserves, it was so well written and Barker just inhabited the character of Norman Stanley Fletcher like only a true comedy character actor can...

They are probably planning some scheme together in the great big prison in the sky...

BBC6 Radio have been playing a few old Two Ronnies routines - it can be streamed. There will be one hell of a tribute from the Beeb - he was comedy royalty.

Dino, you'll live in our pants forever.

And that is sad about Mr. Barker. I wasn't exposed to much of his work, but he was fucking hot, so I am sad. He was in a TV show with that new Batman, David Jason. That's practically porn for me.

Sad sad day.

Best Wishes for the Big Studio in the Sky Mr Barker. You made me laugh my head off every week in all your shows. Brilliant talent, sadly missed.
Elitism is positing that your taste is equivalent to quality, you hate "Hamlet" does it make it "bad"? If you think so, you're one elite motherfucker.

Someone just emailed me this classic Barker. Enjoy. Betty Swallocks - heheheh.

In memory of a great man. Ronnie RIP.
--------------------------------------------------------

This was originally shown on BBC TV back in the seventies. Ronnie
Barker could say all this without a snigger (though god knows how
many
takes). Irony is that they received not one complaint. The speed of
delivery must have been too much for the whining herds. Try getting
through it without converting the spoonerisms [and not wetting your
pants] as you read ...

--------------------------------------------------------

This is the story of Rindercella and her sugly isters.

Rindercella and her sugly isters lived in a marge lansion.
Rindercella
worked very hard frubbing sloors, emptying poss pits, and shivelling
shot.

At the end of the day, she was knucking fackered.

The sugly isters were right bugly astards. One was called Mary
Hinge,
and the other was called Betty Swallocks; they were really forrible
huckers;they had fetty sweet and fetty swannies. The sugly isters
had
tickets to go to the ball, but the cotton runts would not let
Rindercella go.

Suddenly there was a bucking fang, and her gairy fodmother appeared.
Her name was Shairy Hithole and she was a light rucking fesbian. She
turned a pumpkin and six mite wice into a hucking cuge farriage with
six dandy ronkeys who had buge hollocks and dig bicks

The gairy fodmother told Rindercella to be back by dimnlight
otherwise,
there would be a cucking falamity.

At the ball, Rindercella was dancing with the prandsome hince when
suddenly the clock struck twelve. "Mist all chucking frighty!!!"
said
Rindercella, and she ran out tripping barse over ollocks, so
dropping
her slass glipper.

The very next day the prandsome hince knocked on Rindercella's door
and
the sugly isters let him in. Suddenly, Betty Swallocks lifted her
leg
and let off a fig bart. "Who's fust jarted??" asked the prandsome
hince.
"Blame that fugly ucker over there!!" said Mary Hinge. When the
stinking brown cloud had lifted, he tried the slass glipper on both
the
sugly isters without success and their feet stucking funk.

Betty Swallocks was ducking fisgusted and gave the prandsome hince a
knack in the kickers. This was not difficult as he had bucking fuge
halls and a hig bard on.

He tried the slass glipper on Rindercella and it fitted pucking
ferfectly.

Rindercella and the prandsome hince were married. The pransome hince
lived his life in lucking fuxury, and Rindercella lived hers with a
follen swanny.

He seriously did that? And to think, those guys wrote each episode week to week. He seemed to have a real gentle nature too I think, came across as a real compassionate guy.

An all round class act.

Thanks for the laughs Ron.

That is so funny, I've seen the sketch before but I never realised he was saying all that, he says it so quickly & as you say without a break in his stride.

Winslow he was involved in the Show that came just before Monty Pythons with Cleese, if you have ever seen the sketch about the Class system, he's the studly one.

Warren Mitchell is the actors name. Best known for cockney wisecracks and hatred of 'darkies'.

That monologue is much better when you see it, which you will if the BBC tribute is up to scratch.

For the Yanks, it was the British showd 'All in the Family' was based on... So Alf Garnet = Archie Bunker... None of which has anything to do with Ronnie Barker...
