Just hanging around…

The Plan(With apologies to the artist, Nick Galifianakis – whose work can be seen at http://www.nickandzuzu.com. Which I mention in the hope he won’t sue me.)

Thought for the Day

‘I’d rather have been a judge than a miner.  Being a miner, as soon as you’re too old and tired and sick and stupid to do the job properly, you have to go.  Whereas the very opposite applies to judges.’

Peter Cook (1937-1995)


About Chester Crump

Chester J Crump has spent a lifetime in cheese. His company, CC Cheese Ltd, was voted Door to Door magazine’s ‘Smallest Retailer of the Year’ from 1985-2007. Cheddar Today described him as ‘Chester Crump, aged 45’, while the UK’s most successful broadsheet, The Daily Telegraph, has never mentioned him at all. In his spare time, and under a completely different name, Chester has written gags and sketches for a wide range of TV and radio shows both in the UK and mainland Europe (BBC1, ITV, S4C, Radio 2, Radio 4 and the World Service – among others). A published writer for children, teenagers and adults, he has also performed stand-up comedy across Yorkshire and, in 2011, at the Edinburgh Fringe. Ten years ago, he was rumoured to be the constant companion of Sarah Michelle Gellar – TV’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and, more recently, that girl out of EastEnders whose name no one can remember. When he’s not writing his blog, Chester attends second-hand hat conventions, and has what many believe to be the largest collection of used headgear in Yorkshire. He is married to a woman, and lives in a house. All the above is completely true – with the possible exception of the bits about cheese. And Buffy. And EastEnders. And hats.

    Astonishing – I was listening to this Peter Cook sketch just a couple of days ago (someone had the temerity to quote it as ‘I’d rather have been a miner than a judge’. I, of course, had to go and listen to it again, just to prove that my inner geek can still remember things accurately…).

    Not that I know any old, tired, sick or stupid judges. Oh deary me, no…

  2. This plan of yours…. Shouldn’t you be answering the question rather than asking it since you’ve had all these months off for your cheese experiments?

    • You’re too sharp for me! However, as you will see from my latest post, I’m going to be even busier in future, so resolving the problem may have to wait a bit longer. 🙂
