The Apprentice (2) – Discovering the Bin

Tweet      The Apprentice (2) – Discovering the Bin I’ve never believed the claim that if you give an infinite number of monkeys with an infinite number of typewriters an infinite amount of time they will produce the works of Shakespeare. However measured against the likelihood of this year’s batch of apprentices coming up […]

The Apprentice Special – Dara Obriain’s Greatest Hits and Apprentice Slips

Tweet    The Apprentice Special – Dara Obriain’s Greatest Hits and Apprentice Slips Dara Obriain is much more fun on You’re Fired than Adrian Childs. Mind you some may say that root canal surgery is more fun than Adrian Childs. Dara is delightfully sceptical about the whole Apprentice process; not I think especially fond of […]

The Apprentice Episode 7 – Blowin’ In The Wind

The Apprentice Week 7 – who was a pretty boy then?

Tweet The Apprentice Week 7 – who was a pretty boy then? Pretty men don’t like plain women. The reason is psychological not aesthetic. Guys like Philip have to make virtually no effort with lots, even most women. And those who hold out he can usually charm. But really plain women not only distrust such […]

Apprentice Week 2 – Basil drizzling and James-dribbling

Tweet The Apprentice week 2 – Basil-drizzling and James-dribbling It’s Barbara Windsor’s fault. On Wossy’s show she said she’d been freaked out when she went round to dinner at Sralan’s place – which really has to be called ‘Sugarland’ – because he was a dead ringer, well ringer, for her late Carry On carrier-on, Sid […]
