This has to be a Monty Python sketch, right?

    Holy fuck, I am having a coronary.

    Ostensibly, this is an Australian news interview of a senator.

    A WAY-ve hit it.

    A wave hit it?

    Yeah, a wave hit it.

    Is that unusual?

    Well no. It's at sea, isn't it?

    LMFAO, I can see Cleese and Graham going back and forth in this one easily.

    Oh yeah. At sea?... Chance in a million.


    Q: There must be something out there out there?

    A: All there is is seas and birds and fish.

    Q: And?

    A: And 20,000 gallons of crude oil.

    Q: And what else?

    A: And a fire.

    Q: And anything else?

    A: And the part of the ship that fell off. But there's nothing else out there. It's a complete void.

    It's an Australian sketch comedy team called Clarke and Dawe according to some quick google research.

    John Clarke, AKA Fred Dagg. Comic genius from way back. The other guy is Brian Dawe, also very funny.

    Also revolutionised sport and sports coverage. See below:


    Farnarkeling is a sport whose origins are somewhat dappled by the shadows of history. There have been claims that it began in Mesopotamia, which literally means 'between the rivers', and which would put it in Victoria or New South Wales somewhere between the Murray and the Darling, although there is evidence the Pitjijinjarra people had been arkeling from around the time of Noah and there are certainly depictions of arkeling on vases dating from the pharaohs of Egypt.

    The word Farnarkeling is Icelandic in structure, Urdu in metre and Celtic in the intimacy of its relationship between meaning and tone.

    In essence, Farnarkeling is engaged in by two teams whose purpose is to arkle, and to prevent the other team from arkeling, using a flukem to propel a gonad through sets of posts situated at random around the periphery of a grommet. Arkeling is not permissible, however, from any position adjacent to the phlange (or leiderkrantz) or from within 15 yards of the wiffenwacker at the point where the shifting tube abuts the centre-line on either side of the 34 metre mark, measured from the valve at the back of the defending side's transom-housing.

    Amazingly funny. I love that British-quick-banter comedy. Can't get enough. I'll take that all day over slapstick.
