All the way from the early 60's, Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, Alan Bennett and Jonathan Miller ponder America.

Whilst the Café ponders how New Yorkers view the USA, and how the USA views New Yorkers, this still rings true over here.

I hope you all enjoy it.

I gave it the old college try my friend. I listened to the whole thing. But I gotta tell ya, my 66-year old ears couldn't decipher the Queens English as spoken in this clip. I heard lotsa' words like republicans, democrats, conservatives, liberals, big breasts, New York, San Francisco, Washington, D.C. and the like, but not being knowledgeable of the colloquialisms of my British cousins, much of the comedy was lost on me and I couldn't connect the dots. But it sounds like it was funny to you guys!

And don't feel bad, most Americans from Mississippi can't understand a word of Noo Yawkas or Bahstonians and vice versa. See how corrupted your colonials have become! Smile
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

Tomksi-

I love those guys! Remember the Goon Shows from the early sixties with Sellers and Spike Milligan?

Thanks for posting that!

Ah, mastermindreader ... the Goon Shows! Used to listen to them on our shortwave radio in South Africa in the early 60's. "You naughty man!" Fabulous memories.
