I wish I’d seen this video, on the ever brilliant, Sam Sattler’s blog, yesterday. Then I would have popped it on here to mark the celebration of a rather special man’s 200th birthday.

But I didn’t. So here it is now. Better late than never.


And, while I’m always a little reserved about linking to a paper like The Daily Mail, I’m going to have to today. Because reading this, about how Russel Brand is allegedly being lined up to play Worzel Gummidge, made me truly sad. Everything about it seems wrong. And that’s with no disrespect to Brand as an actor. I’m sure he’s very good. Just, well. Like I said. It just feels wrong.

So here’s a video of how I think Worzel should be remembered. Before anyone cocks it up, royally and forever.
