An Open Letter To Hamish Blake

Dear Mr Blake,
I would like to take a moment to apologise for the fact that if you Google "hamish blake is gay" right now I seem to be the #1 result.



Of course, not that there's anything wrong with that.

I'm sure that if you Google "hamish blake is funny" or "hamish blake is a talented young comedian", or even "hamish blake is hands down the funniest thing on spicks & specks by far" you'd get even more results than, um wow, the 158,000 results above.

Cordially,
The Other Andrew

PS: 158,000?!

oooh, "hands down the funniest thing on spicks & specks by far" is an enormous call, TOA! I'm very fond of the boy myself, but I actually think that S&S is even funnier than the sum of it's parts. although I think some people are definitely less funny than others.

wow, that's impressive!; to be the #1 hit on Google. A sort of bent status symbol; always good for supper invite.

I got hooked on Hamish & Andy during a recent short vacation in Melbourne, where the duo is doing drive time radio. It got so we'd try to finish up all our sightseeing early just so we could be in the car, travelling back to our cabin in the Dandenongs and listening to the Hamish & Andy Show.

It was the first week of "Big Brother 2006", so they had many hilariously pithy comments about the new housemates, but the highlight of the week was Hamish pitting his feisty old grandmother against the notorious Mark "Chopper" Read! She really put him in his place, much to her beloved Mishy's horror.

I believe you can also download podcasts of the Hamish & Andy radio show so now that I've switched to broadband, I should check it out - and the dynamic duo is soon to return to TV, on Network Ten. Their new TV show was previewed on "Rove Live" this week.

Speedy - I was pumping his ego.

Ur-spo, I've been the #1 result for a few searches, none of which bear repeating! :)

Therin, I was sad when they canned the tv version of Hamish & Andy, but at least Hamish gets to get his funny on on Spicks & Specks and Thank God You're Here!

Well, when Hamish runs around snogging the host and other random people on the show, what does he expect...

Plus he's just so lickable...

that - that, TOA, is one of the ripest-for-comment comments I've ever read ;) but I just can't make myself...

well, okay, he is likable. but so's Adam Hills. every girl in the blogverse seems to have a crush on Adam... a straight boy with a man-crush on Adam Ant? corr!

bugger, yes, I did mean lickable not likable. we all know they're emminently likable.
