Have you seen the second Ricky Gervais special yet? The bits about gay marriage and Noah's Ark are floor-rollingly funny.

Oh, and remember I asked you if you remembered Waterfuls? You clearly didn't, so I'll remind you. They were these little plastic stand-up tanks of water, with little balls inside. There was a big white button on the front. You pressed it, and it would shoot air into the water, making the balls move around. The "game" would be tic tac toe or whatever--you'd have to make the balls land in certain places. It was like upright, underwater pinball. It seems like every kid had at least one. Shortly after I thought of them and asked you that question, we were eating dinner in Northampton, and a girl at another table was holding a Waterfuls! She was showing it to her parents. I'm guessing Faces or your local "mildly funny stuff" store is now selling them in a retro way. "You have to use your hands? That's like a baby's toy..."
