Let's see if this clip from The Simpsons can't cheer us all up for a few seconds eh?

(This, by the way, is from a Simpsons episode called To Surveil with Love and won't be broadcast on free-to-air tv in Britain until, ooh, 2017 (probably). It's not especially funny or hilarious in any way but is, how you say, 'mildly diverting', and given that it's January, given that it's a while from payday, and given that tv-ooh has just had a tussle with a cat in the garden over its intention to do a poo on tv-ooh's lawn, and given that the clip above is a reminder that, actually, The Simpsons is still rather entertaining, even if it's somewhat buried away on Channel 4 at 6pm these days, 'mildly diverting' is actually, on this occasion, enough. And there is, somehow, some sort of quick, if instantly forgettable, pleasure in seeing the cast of The Simpsons performing the song Tik Tok, which, by the way, was the first time that the traditional Simpsons title theme was not used on the opening of an episode.

Can someone pass the Rescue Remedy please. It's been a long old week.

Have a good weekend fellow ooh-ers.
