  • “I hate people who think it’s clever to take drugs…like custom officers. Aren’t they a bunch of b*****ds, all that finger up the a***hole, all day long. They put a uniform on, for a job like that, can you imagine doing that? ‘Just off to work now dear’. ‘Have a nice day at the orifice’.”
  • “I saw an ambulance, big sign on the back of the ambulance, on the back door. You know what it said, ‘this is an ambulance not a taxi’. I know, I can see don’t worry, I can tell. I know it’s not a taxi, you know how I know it’s not a taxi? Because last time I called a taxi it didn’t take three quarters of an hour to arrive!”
  • “On the back of the fire engine you know what it said? It said ‘smoke alarms save lives’. I thought yeah might save you the bother of getting out of bed to put the fires out you lazy bast**ds!”
  • “This is a fact I learned about Hereford. You know what’s based there? The SAS are based in Hereford. Along with like 17 and a half thousand other guys who claim to be in the SAS. Everyone you meet inherit ‘oh yes i’m in the SAS me'”.
  • “Relationships are so much easier from a distance you know. (pretends to look at smartphone and start texting) ‘Miss you too.’ Send. huhhh.”
  • “The rain forest has Sting. Now Siberia has Jack Dee. Someone had to draw the short straw. In this case it was the rain forest.”
  • “Many of you will have the same thing happen to you, you get a lot of business cards and flyers come through your letterbox the whole time. I had one the other day, which I kept. It said ‘local handyman, no job too small. And to me that’s like a challenge. So I rang him up and said ‘I’ve got your flyer, I was wondering if you could please come over because I’ve got a pencil that needs sharpening”.
  • “I love to be in Britain, when it’s hot weather. I love it when you get four or five days of hot weather, because then people in Kent run out of water, don’t they? Know what I like to do? I like to ring them up, and play the sound of running water down the phone!”
