Another hit on your hands. Dame Margaret Hawte, widow, contributed?? I think I laughed twice, the rest I found to be quite boring, and a little too racist for my liking.
I did watch all of it but it left me feeling unclean! It even made the brilliant Ben Stiller painfully unfunny, which is quite a feat. Little embarrassed about that.

Thanks to his BBC sitcom The Office, self-deluded pen-pusher David Brent is an iconic creation on a par with Alf Garnett and Basil Fawlty. Mr. Krabs has SpongeBob and Squidward make the first successful pizza delivery / SpongeBob starts losing his pineapple house to parasites.
