    RIP, David Croft

    And thank you for all the laughs.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Well, Allo-Allo was very popular here in the '80s and I think I saw 90% of it back then. From You Rang, M'Lord? I saw maybe bits and pieces only. Not a single episode from start to finish, I guess. And I'm totally unfamiliar with his shows from the '70s, but 'Allo 'Allo was a legendary thing.

    My favorite comedies are Fawlty Towers from the '70s, Seinfeld from the '90s and 'Allo'Allo and Blackadder from my high school days. Not sure if there's anything current that I'm watching regularly?! I suppose not. If I start watching something, after only a few episodes I lose interest and stop. Internet factor is too strong so these days it's only movies and things like History Channel.
