OK, so i was in the card shop, the customer in front of me asks for "a four candle" - i chuckle and say "I've never heard that in real life, it's like the 2 Ronnies!"

blank stares from both customer and shop assistant. blush
Had to try to explain the word play involved - neither of them even seem to have heard of the 2 Ronnies never mind the flippin hilarious sketch to which I was referring.

Maybe I am just ancient.
Still, I went on my way still chuckling to myself about it.

I'd have laughed too and I'm 28 so nothing to do with being ancient (I hope!)

Am chuckling reading this.

Maybe its our age. The fact neither of them knew what you were on about is even funnier!

Oh awesome! I'd have howled laughing!

I get the joke smile but what is a four candle?

grin I think it is even funnier them not knowing what you were on about!

Not an age thing I'm 25 and I'd have found it hilarious!

Not at the time! I wanted the ground to open up - they thought I was a madwoman from planet loopy!

I would have said the same thing! I love that sketch and its always being repeated in our house. Got any O's? Hahaha

Sole I'm guessing a candle shaped like the number 4

QOD Sun 30-Sep-12 20:39:15

Four candle - a candle in the shape of a 4

Fork Handle - new handle for garden equipment

I tried to explain this to ds because he loves word puns. He looked blank, keep meaning to google it for him

still one of the funniest sketches ever made

phantomnamechanger Sun 30-Sep-12 20:40:09

SS - it's a candle in the shape of a 4 for a 4 yo birthday cake - they are on a rack behind the till

I'd have laughed and I'm 22! grin

Brilliant, still laugh about that sketch now, one of the funniest ever. Even funnier that the shop assistant didn't get it!!

YANBU, I love that sketch. Has me in stitches every time (I'm 28 btw!).

StetsonsAreCool Sun 30-Sep-12 20:49:11

I'm 28 and roaring at a) the joke and b) picturing their baffled faces when they didn't get it.

Any Os.... grin grin grin

StetsonsAreCool Sun 30-Sep-12 20:50:18

fizzybeerandsausages Sun 30-Sep-12 20:50:55

YANBU It's a brilliant sketch. Last year I bought these for a friend who absolutely loves that sketch.
