Best of British

My favourite TV show has to be Antiques Roadshow. It’s not the actual show I like so much but imagining what the initial brainstorming session would’ve been like.

‘Hey, I’ve got an idea!’
“Hear, hear. We’re bloody bored and haven’t had a coffee for…exactly 38 minutes, so make it quick.’
‘Okay, okay. So, first we gather a bunch of art boffins who travel around the country.’
‘And then?’
‘And then people can bring all their crap to them and have it valued.’
‘And then?’
‘And then we capture their facial expressions as they’re being told how much their junk is actually worth.’
‘And then?’
‘Well, that’s it really.’

In every other country of the world they would’ve told the guy to fuck off and that the next round of coffee was on him.
