I think I've pissed myself

Fringe syndrome

The results are in, and Tim Vine hasn't won the Dave award for best joke at the Edinburgh Fringe. In fact, he didn't make the top ten shortlist. Was he even there?

The best joke went to, or came from, Olaf Falafel: I keep randomly shouting out Broccoli and Cauliflower. I think I might have florets. Which is pretty good, at least compared to Tim Vine.

But, not everyone's amused. Tourettes Action, a charity for people with the syndrome, said it was disappointed by the joke, and called for an apology from the comedian. I bloody hope that he disappoints them a second time! Comedians shouldn't have to apologise to every dinky butt-hurt that they offend; and, although it might be easy for me to think this, it wasn't egregiously offensive.

Anyhow, joy was to be found among some of the runners-up. Especially the first, since I've been on antidepressants, and I know how to take a joke.
