TV satisfaction

Ah! Stephen Fry just made the 'I, Clavdivs' joke on QI.

I think my life is complete now. :)

It isn't anything that profound, but I like it. Just read what it says here.

Yes, but in English, it says "I, Clavdivs".

I think perhaps this only really works orally.

huh huh huh, she said "orally"! ;)

Isn't that something of a running joke in the Asterix cartoons, or is my mind just making things up again?

Stuff along those lines, yes - I think you're right.

it amused me greatly. I was further delighted to be able to watch *two* episodes, due to the ever-shiny BBC freeview channels.

I have BBC4, but I make myself wait. Otherwise, what would I do at 10pm the next Friday night?

I love Stephen Fry. I don't watch QI now because I watch Spoons on Channel 4 at the same time (and have a very basic VCR/TV combo and no digital), but remember getting similarly excited when he once went on an extended excursus about the derivation and usage of the Greek word tmesis.

Oh, I know. And his constant references to Pliny the Younger.

He was on 'Friday night with Jonathan Ross' after QI, as well, being very intelligent about the English language and poetry and so forth.

Dammit! Can't believe he was on JR and I didn't watch it.

My mum revers to it as "I, Clavdivs" all the time, she was most pleased :D

One thing which slightly annoyed me about tonight's show, or perhaps it was a joke that I really missed - which animal does have the shortest/worst memory?

DAMMIT. That should have been "refers" and not "revers". Many apologies! :)
