First off, thanks to me mates PG & JR for turning me on to these Ricky Gervais Show Podcasts. If you like funny, you owe to yourself to download this stuff, burn it, and listen to it next time you commute, or work at a desk, or jog, or what have you. Don't buy a DVD of the next SNL trash movie at the supermarket... this is on for $5-7 a complete season, and 100 times funnier.

OK, with that out of the way - I bring you... Karl Pilkington!

Karl Pilkington has been described by The Office's Ricky Gervais, as being "either one of the greatest comedy talents of this generation, or a partially shaved monkey that can talk."

I think that might be just about correct.. here’s some samples of Karl Pilkington’s musings. Quotes are very out of context (if you can call it that) and much funnier in the middle of a long protracted explanation, with Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant taunting him. But here you go anyway:

· People who live in glass houses have to answer the door.
· Why is alright to be goin' around going mental with a gun shooting all the monkeys and killin' em? Cuz one day, we're gonna run out.
· What were the things in 'Gremlins' called?
· They say they've got a new pope, he's hardly new is he?
· (On the the evolution of the giraffe): Why didn't evolution give them genes to make them good at carpentry then, so they could build a ladder instead of growing long necks?

and finally, my favorite:
· Knowledge is almost annoying.

Like a trained mooon-kie, I am getting sucked in to the cult of Mr. Gervais. Not against my will, either. Bloooody bril.
