07:28 pm - Thank you, Stephen Fry.
"[The Da Vinci Code] is complete loose-stool water; it is arse-gravy of the worst kind."

*sigh* Having just scrolled madly through everything under "Stephen Fry" on Amazon, I'm guessing this is one of your many many books which can't be found in America?

(By sheerest coincidence, I'm in the middle of watching the first Jeeves & Wooster series, which I had somehow never seen.)

Note to self: Always check Wikipedia *first.*

Had I done so, I would of course have seen that this was from a game show which Mr. Fry hosts and which has been running since 2003. Kindly disregard previous comment. ;-)

Sorry; I didn't mean to be obscure. I've just finished watching The C Series (which is a few years old now) on my new region-free DVD set-up. And this was the comment that jumped out at me.

I hope you're enjoying the Jeeves & Wooster series: if you are, I really cannot recommend the original P.G. Wodehouse books highly enough. There's a reason he's considered the greatest comic writer in the language by many people.  :-)
