    Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson

    I miss his Screen Burn column in the Saturday Graduand - It is evil and hilarious.
    I'm sorry, but I'll make no apologies for this

    Agreed this is one of the funniest programmes on TV. I like the way he exposes/pokes fun at TV fakery. He was also one of the writers of the underated Nathan Barley
    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”

    Nathan Barley was rated perfectly: i.e. it was boring.

    the original web thing was hilarious, the TV show was a bit lame.

    have a look at www.tvgohome.com... which was Charlie Brookers comedy website before he became more well known

    Nathan Barley is derived from a fictional TV series on that website, when you see it you'll work out why the name had to be changed for real TV

    [EDIT] I should point out... if you have a busy day ahead of you then DO NOT start trawling the archives

    I like how he described the little gay lad on X Factor as the peeled Jamie Oliver fetus

    I can’t remember exactly what he said but it was something like that.
