Here's a video of the Brainiac episode that probably inspired this. Thrill to the sight of an actual human being walking on a swimming pool full of custard!

We Americans are much poorer for not having QI over here.

Wait a minute. That's not custard, that's pudding.

No, it's not pudding, it's dessert.

I wish BBC-America would air QI, considering some of the dreck they do show, it's completely unfair.

Obviously what we have here is a failure to communicate.

dessert

So you're suggesting that that whole "40 days in the desert" thing is just a typo?

(Actually, I was just joshing, since pudding isn't corn-starch-based, at least not the disgusting pudding that's common here in the US. So this trick obviously wouldn't work with American pudding.

Although I have to say that I'd like to see Bill Cosby try to walk on a swimming pool filled with pudding.)

So this shrink in the Bronx decides to have a party, and everybody needs to come dressed as an emotion. The night of the party, his bell rings, and two of his patients are standing there. Brothers, and bat-shit crazy. They're naked and grinning at him. One of them has a pear affixed to the end of his penis, while the other has a pudding container on his whang.

"You were supposed to come dressed as an emotion," the doctor says, bewildered.

The one with the fruit on his shlong says, "We did, doc! I'm deep in dispair!"

And the other says, "Yeah, yeah! And I'm fucking discustard."

Oh hells bells, what's the audio track playing behind that Brainiac link? I recognize it but can't identify it. Old Prodigy, maybe?

Jesus: Away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'

Satan: Pardon me, monsieur, but are you quite sure I couldn't tempt you with a luscious bit of crème brûlée, or maybe a nice fat éclair?

Has Mr. Fry tweeted about this yet? Because he's tweeted about everything else, including picking his nose whilst walking barefoot on porcupine quills in the jungles of Bengal.

Never heard of this show before this, but turns out I like it.

If your interested, its called QI. Here's a youtube playlist.

Chemical Brothers ♥ Dust Brothers, but not vis-versa (at least until Dust remixed Chemical).

I love QI. This bit is good, but nowhere close to some of the best. Stephen Fry rocks.

If I was Jon Tickle stuck in custard I'd be screaming.

That depends on how many people have drowned in it trying to walk on it.

Thxs, Navelgazer. Next time, maybe I'll read more than the first paragraph of an article. Although, apparently, they called themselves after the other ones.

Sure. The question is, would he?

Do not forget the valuable contributions that Alan Davies brings to the show. None more significant, perhaps, than his discussion regarding Peter Cushing ... !

QI is great, and Alan Davis is pretty brilliant. I think Metafilter turned me on to QI a year or so ago, and since then I've been a fervent downlo uh..watcher.

I also highly recommend Never Mind the Buzzcocks, which is a music-centric celebrity quiz show. Sure, I don't recognize half the celebrities, but the ones I do are fun to watch, and some of the ones I don't make for bloody brilliant television (like Preston).

Actually, just go watch that episode right now. And the following one.

Oh man thi is some great stuff. Looks like it no longer in production, but what a riot it would be with Hugh Laurie as a guest.

Uh…hmm. I never would've imagined him as a guest, but…you're right.

New episodes of QI were recorded just a month or so ago; am guessing UK viewers will see them sometime in autumn.

Earlier post on Fry & Laurie:

Early on in their comedy career a couple of guys turned up to do some decorating for Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie. It later transpired the duo were Paul Whitehouse and Charlie Higson (co-creators of The Fast Show).

I don't know if he would walk on custard, but it's my understanding that he rocks a pogo stick, can see his house from less than 12 feet off the ground, is a hell of a goalie and can tap dance.
Rumor has it the 'H' stands for Haploid.
