Weirdly, Freddie Frinton is known widely throughout Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Scandinavia - he is more famous than Elvis. In Holland there is a guy famous for impersonating Freddie Frinton.

"Dinner for One" has been a New Year's Eve sensation since the 60's and every year families gather round the TV to watch it  - considerably more than Brits watch the Queen's Speech.

A few years back I spent New Year in Mainz and I couldn't believe it's popularity - it was broadcast on EVERY channel - and they had programmes beforehand showing people getting ready to watch it - everyone from Hell's Angels getting the beers in to famous politicians having wine with their families. The news programmes ended with an update of what time it would be shown on their channel. Throughout Germany and northern Europe, people were organising "Dinner for One" parties.

Basically it's a short play in which Freddie Frinton humours his mad employer and gets pissed in the process. And it is BELOVED throughout northern Europe.

I loved him with Thora Hird in Meet The Wife.

I've never killed a fly since watching this as a kid. Well, you never know, do you?

I'm messing about on the internet because I don't want to go into the loft. It's mainly Christmas stuff up there, and I'm unlikely to find much of interest.
Mind you, I've said that before. I'll try next week.

Went up there a few years ago, and did my back in. I lay, half in, half out for two hours until someone came home.
Mentioned it to Breadman in an email exchange, and he went straight off and posted my mishap on Nuts.

Bastard. Neutral

Finally made it into the loft, but was a little disappointed. It's mainly Christmas stuff, and a few boxes of Private Eye.
Did find a tin of old Wanderers pin badges, and, to my delight, my Tony Hancock Homburg. I'll get it dusted off and wear it during the day.
I won't be wearing it to the match.

i'd like to see some of the badges Boncey, could be worth a few quid too.

No real money in them, sadly. Not even sure if people bother with them these days. I've got more knocking about somewhere.

Some good badges there but i can see what you mean with the last one  Very Happy

Never liked the badge we had with the ribbons on, glad they went back to the proper badge.

I remember collecting a badge from every league club, then swapping them for a ginger haired ventriloquist's dummy. I was 12, and a strange child to boot. Very little has changed.
The Cairn Terrier we owned at the time, took an instant dislike to Archie, for such was his name, and took great delight in savaging him at every opportunity.
I remember he once escaped the house and ran off up the street with him clamped in his jaws, myself in hot pursuit, dad following behind, wishing the condom hadn't split. 
I finally caught the dog, dad caught me, and a 'discussion' was had regarding my leaving doors open, and swapping good stuff for shit. He said he'd get rid of me, and keep the dummy if he could decide which of us was which.
You could belt kids in those days you know. Neutral

Modelled on a birthday ballon by some lazy graphics designer no doubt. Very Happy

Archie looked a lot like this. I don't wonder that the dog, and dad, hated him.

No wonder the dog went for it, looks like something from a horror film  Very Happy

You could wear the '29 Cup Final badge on the 26th March to inspire us with confidence.

Yes. That's not the actual dummy, but it was very similar. Dad gave it away to the scouts, who were having a bring and buy sale. It sold for £3. 
A few years later we discovered it had sold at auction for £390. Who knew? 
I held that over my dad for many years. Very Happy
