“If You Are Reading This, Judgement Day Has Come and Gone”

I love Potholer 54’s videos.  In fact, I find him both funny and erudite enough to have fit in with the original cast of Beyond the Fringe, the group whose end of the world skit appears in this video.

For those unfamiliar with Beyond the Fringe, I suggest you remedy that.  Immediately.  The Wikipedia entry on the group  is a good start.  Smart, funny, and eccentric, the original cast of Fringe still ranks as one of the more innovative ever.  Peter Cook and Dudley Moore were great, but they were the lightweights of the four.  Scary thought, that.  I suspect my models for eccentric genius formed when I discovered Jonathan Miller and Allen Bennett.

Happy Doomsday, everyone!
