The Life of Brian named best comedy

The best comedy film of all timeThe Life of Brian has been named the best comedy in a Channel 4 poll. Anyone who ever thought the public lack taste needs to think again.

The Life of Brian is one of my favourite movies of all time. Taking a theme and refusng to compromise on any potential offence the result is a laugh a minute. It was hard to top Monty Python and the Holy Grail but this film succeeds. (What a pity The Meaning of Life came and was merely good.) I could never grow tired of it.

Hi Tim,

It's been about 12 and a half years since we last spoke, so I wouldn't be surprised if you don't remember me. My name's Charles Sundt, and I attended Downsend School with you.

I recently started volunteering for Childline as a telephone counsellor, which involved quite a bit of soul-searching as part of the training process.

One of the types of calls that Childline often fields is from children being bullied at school. I spent a large portion of my school life being bullied to various degrees, but I am ashamed to admit that in at least one case I was the bully myself.

Please accept my sincere apologies for any grief that I caused you.

Charlie

Hi Tim,

Apologies for posting the previous message on this blog - it's not the most appropriate forum, but I couldn't find up-to-date contact details for you. I presume you have the ability to delete these comments if you see fit?

You sounded like you had more to say when we spoke earlier. If, like me, you just hate phones, feel free to email me at charlie@fictionontheweb.co.uk (although it sounds like you found my website already so I'm sure you found the email address!).

I would genuinely like to buy you a drink sometime next month when I've moved down to London, if you'd be gracious enough to accept it.

Charlie
