'Ave a cuppa tea

It's Right Said Fred Day over here at Pickle Me This. Yes indeed, we're back in the world of 9-5 and therefore online minutiae is taking over. It all starts with a cheesy sixties compilation we were listening to at work, which was more than a bit British and contained the novelty song "Right Said Fred" by Bernard Cribbins. No one had ever heard this song before, but I quickly fell in love with it. And so we wikipedia'd our way over to the Right Said Fred (the bad early 90s duo) page to see if there was any relation, and lo and behold there was. And that page brought all the memories back; who remembers the follow up hits? We find the videos: Deeply Dippy and Don't Talk Just Kiss. How about Brian Orser skating to Deeply Dippy?! And while we were over at ye olde Youtube, we plug in Bernard Cribbins' "Right Said Fred" to see what we come up with, and we get results. This video contains a recording of the song that started it all, and is three small and very adorable children acting the whole thing out. It's very cute. And then what do you know? It was home time.
