Tuesday Titter

Welcome to what I intend to be a new regular feature, the Tuesday Titter. I've decided to start with a couple of clips from the brilliant BBC Scotland sketch show "Chewin' the Fat". Just as catch phrases from UK-wide shows such as The Fast Show and The Catherine Tate Show passed into the popular consciousness, Chewin' the Fat became a part of Scottish culture in the late 1990's and early 2000's before spawning the fantastic Still Game.

First, here's a medley of News Bulletins, with interpretation for Neds courtesy of Rab McGlinchy:

As they say in the Dear Green Place*: it's pure dead brilliant, so it is.


*Glasgow, to the uninitiated
