a strange chain of events concluded with me stumbling across these stirrers on double yellow lines. it started with me finally listening to a podcast from stephen fry which had been sitting on my podcast for months. it was all about broadcasting (specifically this) although i hadn’t realised in advance it would be. so rather than being just fun, it was unexpectedly work-related and fun instead.
in the podcast he referred to a sketch he did in his old fry and laurie days about multi-channel television involving plastic stirrers which is on youtube here (relevant bit is around 2mins, then just after 4 mins – language on video perhaps completely safe for work)
Anyway what should i see yesterday, but a load of stirrers. if stephen fry had been standing next to them then it would have been a perfect circle.
