I love this book!

I can visualize Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie doing all the sketches in this book.

I like this pun:

Betty had a bit of bitter butter and put it in her batter and made her batter bitter.

Then Betty took a bit of better butter and put it in her bitter batter and made her bitter batter better.


Can't translate that to Indonesian. It's the same like the sentence Kuku kaki kakak kakekku kaku-kaku

I loved a Bit of Fry and Laurie and saw them at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival when this book came out. It still makes me laugh and I wish they would pair up again.

Pas mal... mais je n'aurais pas forcément choisi ces sketchs là. Il manque quelques bons classiques (comme Shakespeare, le type bourré au barre...). Tous les textes ne sont pas aussi drôles. Mais en tout cas, très bonne idée de proposer enfin une édition française du duo Fry & Laurie.

I've watched the show before, and the book is just as random and weird. Love it.

Just a collection of scripts from the series, so only pick it up if you're a fan of that.

“I think it was Donald Mainstock, the great amateur squash player who pointed out how lovely I was. Until that time I think it was safe to say that I had never really been aware of my own timeless brand of loveliness. But his words smote me, because of course you see, I am lovely in a fluffy moist kind of way and who would have it otherwise? I walk, and let’s be splendid about this, in a highly accented cloud of gorgeousness that isn't far short of being, quite simply terrific. The secret of smooth almost shiny loveliness, of the order of which we are discussing, in this simple, frank, creamy sort of way, doesn't reside in oils, unguents, balms, ointments, creams, astringents, milks, moisturizers, liniments, lubricants,
embrocations or balsams, to be rather divine for just one noble moment, it resides, and I mean this in a pink slightly special way, in ones attitude of mind.

To be gorgeous, and high and true and fine and fluffy and moist and sticky and lovely, all you have to do is believe that one is gorgeous and high and true and fine and fluffy and moist and sticky and lovely.

And I believe it of myself, tremulously at first and then with rousing heat and passion, because, stopping off for a second to be super again, I’m so often told it.

That’s the secret really.”
