The One Ronnie in the Blackberry Sketch

The BBC has an online report today about the decline of puns in modern comedy.

The story was prompted by the return of 80-year-old Ronnie Corbett to television in a Christmas Day special, The One Ronnie.

It’s nothing to do with politics, although the decline of creativity with the language is related, but it’s that time of year.
