I love Mitchell and Webb! (And I once saw David Mitchell in a pub, not that I TALKED to him or anything).

Have you seen this one? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SO5WoLnOOlU&feature=related

I love that one! I think that was the clip that introduced me to them. "Are...are we the baddies?"

(I converted my mom with "Numberwang.")

When we were in Sardinia we saw this Italian gameshow that seriously WAS Numberwang, or at least Wordwang. E.g "'Furniture?'... or 'Inhibition?'" "Er... 'Furniture?'" *pause* *pause* *dramatic pause* "No! You've just lost 30,000 euros!"

(Okay, we DID at last work out the rationale, and it was rather disappointing to realise it actually had one, but it was still most bizarre to watch).

Dare I ask what the rationale was? (Don't say "Twentington.")

Well, you ENDED UP with a group of about five words, all of which were part of everyday phrases that had some OTHER word in common, and you had to work out what that word was to walk away with the jackpot. But first, you had to actually assemble the five words by guessing the right one out of a choice of two! And every time you guessed wrong, the man said "Guillotine" and you lost half your money!


...see? ...see?

That's Numberwang!

(I probably CAN make it clearer if I try...)

I laughed my ass off at that just now.
