[quote user="Rock The Boat"]Hogestar is very good, always worth reading but my main man is TCCanary. Very sharp young man and a rapier wit. To me TC stands for Top Cat and that is the character I picture when reading his posts.[/quote]

I think this should be TC''s avatar. Afterall, he''s not a cat...

[/quote]My favourite episodes of The Phil Silvers Show (AKA Bilko) were the Elvin Pelvin one and the one where they tried to court martial a chimp and Bilko was his defence lawyer. They re-ran all the epsodes recently on The Forces channel on Sky. Fantastic stuff.

The whole bit where the chimp sods off and picks up the telephone (veering off script), Phil Silvers doesn''t miss a beat and ab-libs the immortal "He''s phoning for another lawyer".

A while ago I went searching out Bilko pictures and the theme music for reminiscence and ended up watching whole episodes on youtube. Great comedy and Phil Silvers timing is awesome.
