Spike Milligan

Apparently some of Spike Milligan’s work is “going mobile” – i.e. being released as mobile ringtones, wallpapers etc.

In order to celebrate the occasion I decided to post up a few Spike Milligan quotes:

  • Contraceptives should be used on every conceivable occasion.
  • Are you going to come along quietly, or am I going to have to use ear plugs?
  • I thought I’d begin by reading a poem by Shakespeare, but then I thought, why should I? He never reads any of mine.
  • Blessed are the cracked, for they let in the light.


I was listening to Goon Show episode the other day – I think they’re on BBC 7, or whatever newfangled digital radio thingum the BBC have these days – in the evenings.

I’ll have to dig some of my old tapes out now and have a listen!

    Couldn’t resist adding a couple of my favourites – apologies to those who’ve heard them before:

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder – wash it out with Optrex.

    I’d like to go to Heaven. Unless Jeffrey Archer’s there, in which case I’d rather go to Lewisham.
