His column on Tracey Emin in today's Observer is genius

Plus Alexis Petridis (another funny man) was funny about David Mitchell yesterday in some never-ending loop of borderline-boiler funniness.

Just thought I'd mention it.

Great article from David Mitchell as ever. He makes perfectly valid points in a very amusing way. Like him very much.

Pyrocanthus Sun 11-Oct-09 13:54:08

Me too.

I like him very much indeed.

<oooOOOOooo> at Fajitas. Don't suppose there's any privileged information you'd like to share with 800,000 strangers on the internet?

<<Has a good hard think about David Mitchell. While rubbing hands on thighs....>>

v funny, intelligent - and very allurig - man.

ShowOfHands Sun 11-Oct-09 15:16:01

Yes, dinner invite here too. Tell him not to be alarmed when I stare at him for prolonged periods and Say Silly Things. It's just that I love him quite a lot.

mollyroger Sun 11-Oct-09 15:17:51

I don't have a big enough house to invite him to a dinner party.
He'd have to sit on my lap......

TheMissingLink Sun 11-Oct-09 15:21:18

Is it very hot there too? Would he have to <gasp> disrobe?

PoppyDeLaFoof Sun 11-Oct-09 15:23:00

He is a genius. I think I love him.

MaryAmericanSmooth Sun 11-Oct-09 15:24:49

oh I do love him too !

Aitch will be along to post a picture of a meerkat in a moment.

he's starting to get on my nerves now grin

you lot!

policywonk Sun 11-Oct-09 15:32:23

Well that's one competitor out of the way. Only 15 million to go.

"I'm definitely not keen on rich installation artists moaning about engineering work on their gravy train line"


zanz1bar Sun 11-Oct-09 19:58:33

He said everything that I felt welling up in my bile about our Trace.

It was perfection.

policywonk Sun 11-Oct-09 20:53:42

Yes, I loved the engineering works line too. He does manage to work about ten brilliant one-liners into every article.

mollythetortoise Sun 11-Oct-09 21:02:21

loved the article too. spot on.
tracy and her ilk (damian hurst also springs to mind - although I don't think he has commented on the 50% tax rate) probably cannot see that the huge prices paid for her unmade bed and other nonsense which have made her rich are a direct result of the whole credit bubble.
she happened to be making crap art in the right place at the right time.
if i was her, i'd pay my taxes, consider myself very lucky indeed and keep my mouth shut.
