For those Forum members with a sense of humour, I would recommend this. Well it made me laugh and I was sober.

Ha, Geoff, good one. Mind if I download it for when I'm teaching? Cheers!

Hi Guys.

No problem at all with anyone using it or anything on The Corner.
Just wish I had bought a better mic as the sound is naff and perhaps another take
would have worked.

I have ideas for others but hopefully will do a Corner DVD so keeping ideas
for that. Also I've forgotten my YouTube password.

I prefer the Horses Ass one except I do have a fit of the giggles when I
play my grand daughters xylophone pretending it's a mobile phone.

Part of my youth was misspent learning this aria. It is from The Barber of Seville and is very apposite.

Geoff,

Just showed this clip to a group of Primary School children: they loved it.

Thanks.

Are there any other good clips available on the Internet with suchlike simple, fairy-story style games?

Regards,
Paul McKeown

Hi Paul.

I've just squeezed in a game I used when I teaching the kids
in the mid 80's. Lord of the Rings was quite big in Edinburgh
at the time so I used Frodo.
