Well Red Nose Day started out a bit more like Red Face Day as the website was temporarily unavailable this morning. All down to the unfortunate fact that there’s just too much stuff on it! No Really. Anyway thanks to the good people at YouTube and of course the legend that is Rob Molcher we got it all back up and running by early afternoon.
Yeah, so Red Nose day or Comic Relief if you like. Katy had already been out and done some sterling work finding out what the good people of Adamsdown were planning to do, so it seemed only right and fitting that we put a little package together in comic vein, if you see what I mean.
Now the Atrium – a hotbed for creativity. Surely some of the clever student types know some good jokes? OK so I pinched the idea from BBC Radio Wales who were much more on the ball than we were doing the jokes thing earlier in the week (That’s what the licence fee’s for…). Anyway, a quick trawl ’round the main foyer to find out what’s been tickling the students.
Unfortunately the mucky little chaps and chap-esses proceeded to impart some rather inappropriate humour, which I think is only fit for the pub (By the way, see all our coverage of the campaign to save Adamsdown’s very own Vulcan – if you go there on Monday night I might just give away some of the naughty jokes). Fortunately there were some students (mainly ladies I might add) who weren’t so potty mouthed and did give me a lovely selection of clean jokes which I’ve put together in a nice little feature about comic relief
On a more serious note it is a great cause and there’s loads of stuff on the telly tonight and remember you can always look at www.comicrelief.com for information on how to make a difference to the lives of people in Britain and in less well off parts of the world.
