Benny Hill is funny in an embarrassing way. It's probably really funny if one is high whilst watching it. When I think of Benny Hill I think of a lecherous, slightly senile old man chasing women around.

I haven't even seen it rerun here in years and years. There used to be a late-night commercial for a set or something ages back. And 20-20+ years ago public television stations just would not relent.

I actually saw an ad for Benny Hill reruns on one of the cable stations earlier this week.

As a kid, I always used to confuse Benny Hill with Benny Hinn.

It gets repeated here on, get this, a Christian channel. That, Father Ted and Yes Minister. I'm still amazed that On The Buses are not playing.

If only they'd play Dave Allen, then I could watch that and Yes Minister again.

One is a fat lecherous bastard and the other is a fat lecherous greedy bastard that uses/fleeces Christians.

I like both shows. i was just wondering what the general consensus would be. I figured Python would be more popular.
