Actually managed to send three sketches this week after writing four, I usually muster up one or two.

The one about Heinz got canned at the last minute (terrible pun intended).

There's a gag that needs more varieties.

Personally I'm enjoying the Monday / Tuesday twitter feeds of the producers of Newsjack. It would appear that after several series of reading bad/offensive puns from twitter they've finally cracked.

And Newsjack Bingo is a fun game anyone can play.


Yep, loving Newsjack bingo.
Especially the surge of Pistorious "leg to stand on" submissions.

I'm predicting their next bingo call will be "Please, please, please no more Richard Briers had a good life submissions."

You could combine the two stories and have someone who walks round in Ever Decreasing Circles.

Well, my one liners are sent.

They did include a Richard Briers joke. I'm hoping there's enough of a twist not to end up on the name and shame tweets! *Pressure*

Need to chuck half of them away.
