You know those moments where you're listening to an old episode of I'm Sorry, I Haven't a Clue and you hear a variation of a joke you told your wife over the weekend, which you found very very funny at the time but now all you can do is groan?

Yeah, maybe I'm a bit closer to understanding something about why Sarah doesn't find my jokes funny...

(For the record, my version of it went, roughly, "so, I looked at the Christmas tree, and underneath were loads of wrapped parcels, but when I went to pick them up they were all etheral and phantom-like. Turns out they were the ghosts of Christmas presents." Ker-tish.)

Have a video

For the last couple of weeks, I've been a bit intrigued about the music that plays over the BBC2 Christmas comedy trailer (the one that includes clips from festive editions of QI, Never Mind the Buzzcocks*, and other festive offerings. It was only today that I was able to work out what the song actually was (Sleigh Ride), and a bit more digging led me to find that it's a version by Barenaked Ladies. The version on Youtube is brief, and the video consists of Christmas lights and nothing else, but anyway, here y'go.

"Reassuringly silly," I think...
