Do you recognise this ‘not such a bad old cove’

Local artists painting local scenes and events are a delight to behold and to own!

Labour of love: numerous local events are being held throughout the region so there are plenty more opportunities to see their work

Great effort goes into producing works of art – and you don’t have to be wealthy to own them. They can also work to compliment an interior design or even simply a decorative colour scheme – or even just to set the tone for visitors to your home – or factory or office.

Art is, like beauty what you make it to be and what you make of it, in the eye of the beholder!

IOC: The search for an ‘escaped goat’ continues..

“Lost in Translation”:

 

the ‘satyrical’ movie!

A lot of head-scratching is going on currently – in the headquarters quite naturally, we’re told!

The International Olympics Committee is searching for the truth about the satyr – is it a myth? Can a Russian sportsman reportedly when doped make a comeback as a half-goat?

Our local litter-picker is reportedly a Buddhist who believes in recycling and reincarnation.

He wants to come back as a can of condensed milk – but please, oh please, unopened!

FIFA is also looking for a new Chairman

They just can’t seem to get the right staff these days .. here is a short interview test question we’d ask one candidate

Q. Should or could a footballer throw a match?

A. No, only a ball on certain occasions.

That is the correct answer!

One is reminded of other lost in translation comedies with wordplay – remember Benny Hill?

Some of the editors’ favorites: –

 

In an effort to appeal to the younger generation, cottingham.tv suggests they might try a modern computer game?

There’s an escaped goat! #findthegoat

Scapegoats are indeed a recurrent theme in comedy along with wordplay as you may see!

#lostintranslation ? #followthehaggis !

P.S: We may also even get round to reviewing the film!

Suggestions on a postcard please to Cottingham.tv please mark c/o The Head Attendant, Kingston Municipal Lavatories, Queen Victoria Square, Hull

 

P.P.S: Whilst we’re on the subject of taking the PPS’s:

Fame for Cottingham Comedy Stand-ups at last – or where to go in Hull

Blowback!

Alternatively speaking, you can see us featured as Cottingham Stand-up Comedy in The List with truly ground-breaking, earth-shaking events taking place directly opposite!

But please be careful to only turn your head to look across when precipitating into the porcelains..
