Irish Astronauts

Spike Milligan is the Godfather of British alternative comedy. He pioneered revolutionary radio comedy with the creation of The Goon Show and went on to be a major influence on Monty Python's Flying Circus with his innovative "Q" series.

Oh this is so politically incorrect by today's standards.  I don't mind telling you that I have some Irish blood. The "country fool" is a popular folk idiom that has many ethnic identities over the years.  It is fun to see this dated jab at Irishmen.  It reminds us all of our common humble beginnings.
