One of my favourite TV shows is the BBC's "QI" (Quite Interesting), with Stephen Fry. I was reminded today of one of my favourite closing quotes of his from the show:
I leave you with this cautionary snippet about paying attention. A radio interviewer from GLR Radio, carried away with news of a possible discovery of a cross between an elephant and a woolly mammoth, asked a paleontologist 'So, it would be like some sort of hairy gorilla, would it?' To which the paleontologist replied, 'Yes, pretty much... except... elephant-shaped and uh... with tusks.'
Sad to read today of the passing of Richard Pryor. He changed the face of comedy in many countries, and for that must go down as one of the most influential entertainers ever. His legacy will outlive me, I'm sure.
