The stuff of insubstance

I'm not one of those people who have particularly vivid dreams, or even the type of person who will talk about their dreams (because as we all secretly believe in our darkest of dark hearts, there is nothing on this earth that is more boring than people telling you about a dream they once had). So with all that in mind, I'm going to tell you about a dream I had last night.

In my dream, Stephen Fry had died. The country had gone into spontaneous mourning just like when Diana flatlined in '97 with people lining the streets as his hearse was driven from London to Norfolk. However, instead of throwing flowers in front of the hearse, they were throwing pairs of gold coloured comedy breasts. And at his funeral, John Barrowman danced to Beyonce's Single Ladies while wearing a pair of Very Shiny Trousers.

Now, the reason I mention all this is not because I bear Stephen Fry any ill-will. Indeed, he is one of the few people in this country who make it cool to be intelligent and by 'eck, we need more of that. No, it's the fact that while I know where the John Barrowman part of the dream came from (and I'm saying nothing but looking sternly in the direction of uC) and I know that the gold comedy breasts were a feature in Blackadder II, I can't help but feel that I've absorbed the image of having them thrown before the hearse from somewhere and I can't for the life of my figure out where it's from.

It must have been a comedy show or a stand-up remark or something and it is bugging the hell out of me because while I have absolutely no problem with being unoriginal, I'd at least like to be able to cite my source.

And with that, I shall bid you all good night.

It sounds like something that Fry/Laurie/Emma and That Lot might have done in flashback at the beginning of Peter's Friends, but I certainly don't remember them doing it.

And before I forget to say it one morre time: happy belated to you, my dear fellow Damn Scorpio:)
