Knock Knock...Colin Baker breaks obscure world record

Bucks Free Press: Knock Knock...Colin Baker breaks obscure world record Knock Knock...Colin Baker breaks obscure world record

SPEED reading BFP columnist Colin Baker broke an obscure world record in the Australian jungle last night - by telling the highest number of jokes in a minute.

During an amusing interlude in last night’s I’m a Celebrity.... the contestants were tasked with breaking slightly daft world records to win food for the camp.

And while Charlie Brooks failed to eat an onion in world-beating time, and Ashley Roberts couldn’t hit the star jump target – former Doctor Who star Colin Baker was delighted with his feat of reeling off a list of jokes at record speed.

Daughter Lucy Baker wrote in the family’s BFP blog last night: “Our favourite ‘Dad moment’ tonight was definitely the Aussie Record breaking.

“He was clearly desperate to do something to contribute to camp. The look on his face was amazing. So I am the daughter of the man who can tell the most jokes in a minute. One for the CV...”

A Facebook page urging people to vote for Mr Baker to win the ITV series has been launched.

Once again ....

Anyone who is interested in this will have watched it or recorded it.

Why does the BFP need to print a "what I saw on telly last night" article? It is just cheap, nasty, lazy, easy filler.

I think you will find that he has re emerged as Ivor Bigun.
The ridiculous claims, the style of writing, everything is the same as Mr Bigun.
Even the on line paper that he wrote for is owned by Newsquest :D

Lord Erastus Theobald Piggott is alive and well. He is still commenting on NewsShopper. He doesn't sound anything like Ivor Bigun to me. Although the comments on Ivor Wycombe's Facebook page seem a lot more reasonable than the idiot behind the blogs. So, who knows?

enjoy :

There once was a po faced blogger called Piggott,

who was a hasbeen and an old nasty bigot,

He attacked white people for simply no reason,

then accused brit flag wavers, of high treason,

A posionous blog, full of old c.ock and bull,

and supported by small minded morons and fools,

But the blog is no more, it has gone!,

because good minded people fought back with Ron!,

So say good bye to old Erastus Piggott,

the once resident, local Newspaper bigot!.
