I’m H.A.P.P.Y

A lighter post. Or…..And now for something completely different.

For people that know me, I am quite an intent and focussed individual, with a darker, edgier sense of humour. Some people might call it sarcastic. Others may describe it as having a deep sense of irony or dry humour.


Last night, my wife asked me “What was that program…you know…the one where they sing ‘I’m H.A.P.P.Y’ as part of the intro”. I remembered the program from my childhood, James Bolam was in it, but I couldn’t remember the name, so I picked up my tablet and searched for it on YouTube, as you do in this day and age. Within seconds, I found this video of the theme tune.

This may be quintessentially a British thing, but I grew up on a healthy diet of these types of TV shows. And dry humour along with double entendres were staple fare. And I love it. I had an English teacher who epitomised it. We got on great.

I do love comedy. Achmed the dead terrorist had me literally crying with laughter the first time I saw it. And Lee Evans is one of my all time favourites, he does remind me of Norman Wisdom alot too. Monty Python is another favourite, much to my wife’s chagrin. Best watched after a few drinks.

So there it is, my sense of humour can be blamed on the TV. If you need a daily dose of humour to start your day, you could do far worse than follow Humorous Dispassionate.

  1. I am a fan of Absolutely Fabulous, The Young Ones, Little Britain (Love that show!!), The Office (the original one and the one here in the States too), and of course Monty Python.

  2. Monty Python rocks, with or without the drinks! We quote it all the time! We also watch a lot of older british sitcoms…Hubby’s favourite is Chef! I grew up with Bless Me Father. It’s too hard to pick just one!!

    1. Agreed Jenn, though when I watch Monty Python films after a few drinks, I find tears of laughter streaming down my face. And my wife looking at me as though I have lost my marbles!
