Posted by Rick on 16 Mar 2017 12:03pm

What would you consider to be the cutest animal?  Some of you would say a baby kangaroo, perhaps.  Some a spring lamb.  Marsupials may well rise to the top of the list, you say Koala, I say King Cobra but there is one, unifying factor typical of our species: most people would tend to agree that most people are awful.     We live in polemic times where there seems to be more talk of left and right than on a Sergeant Major-led march.  But that is pre-dated by the judgement we all pass on the pusher-inner in a queue.  The commuting nail-clipper.  The hugger.   We are not particular fans of judgemental folk.  Listen in as Rick & Paul pass  judgement on them.   A clean comedy podcast.

“Don’t complain about the snow on your neighbours roof when your own doorstep is unclean,” offered Confucius.  A niche proverb big man, largely aimed at the Inuit market, but a proverb nevertheless.  And proverbs mean history.

The art of complaining has been around since the first dinosaur relieved itself against the wrong cave.  “Mustn’t grumble” was the war-time phrase espoused by our grandparents before they spawned generation upon generation of whiners, whingers and solicitors.  Rampant litigation has turned these complaints into legal rough and tumble.  The customer is always right, at least when it suits, and so it is that we live in a world where it pays to complain.

Listen in to Rick and Paul’s comedy podcast as they heal your wounds of misery, deflate your balloons of resentment and eclipse your moons of moaning.

RSS FeedEpisode #34 Henry VIII

Posted by Rick on 21 Apr 2016 17:04pm

As the Queen turns 90, the duos’ attention turns to the Monarchy.  Henry VIII (or The Eighth, numeral haters), composer of hit double-confirmative single ‘I’m Henry VIII I am’ is one of history’s fullest figures.

In youth he was a man of prodigious appetite, religious fervour and shapely calves.  In old age he was simply a man of prodigious appetites.  Rick and Paul discuss his wives, his eating, his boar-hunting and just why did Whoopi Goldberg hate him so much.

Posted by Paul on 14 Apr 2016 11:04am

Scrooge McDuck, Mr. Moneybags and Donald Trump all, quite clearly, have one thing in common.  They’re cartoon characters.

 

Cartoon characters obsessed with money.

 

Capitalism has the planet caught in its Midas grip. Whilst we can’t eat, drink or romance it, chasing the filthy lucre dominates every breath.  Money, Money, Money…Money, Money sang Abba, before I wiped off the thumbprint.

 

Rick and Paul are here to fleece/heal you.  Send them your wallets as proof of your willingness to be healed.

RSS FeedEpisode #32 Modern Music

Posted by Rick on 07 Apr 2016 17:04pm

You’re at a gig.  You’ve paid a load of cash to hear your favourite band sing your favourite song.  The chorus comes up, you hold your breath in excitement knowing you’ll always remember this moment and they HOLD THE MICROPHONE TO THE CROWD SO THE PAYING PUNTERS CAN SING.

Could’ve done that at home.  For free.  You rotter.

Modern music is a con, a swizz.  When the present-day troubadours are not inventing words and meat-based dresses, they encourage violence through grunts and half-rhymes.  Forget the Mods vs. the Rockers.  We’ve got Kanye West vs. Taylor Swift.

Beliebers vs. Directioneers? Nonsense. WE’VE got a direction for your ears.

To Rick and Paul!  Yay!

Posted by Rick on 24 Mar 2016 12:03pm

The holidays are coming!  The holidays are coming!  Wait…it’s Easter?  Forget it then.  About your business.

Easter, if we put the religious aspect to one side but for a moment, is the blandest of holidays.  Lacking the greedy warmth of Christmas or the pizazz of a New Year, Easter’s a time of bonnets, rabbits and indeterminate timing washing in a river of dribbled chocolate.

Well scrap that folks, Rick and Paul are here for you, holidaying in your ears and pouring in the fun.  However;  there will be no admittedly eggcellent puns.  There  shell be no cracking of silly yolks.

Those day, my friends, are ova.

Two titans of the British problem-solving community are at the top of their game (one of them writes, descriptively) in this special episode of Rick and Paul Heal the World.

As our global ball rolls dangerously towards the corner pocket of total oblivion, Rick and Paul straighten their jackets and take their cue.

#NeverTrump and #MakeAmericaGreatAgain hashtags peekaboo through social media as only hashtags can and the world frets over precisely whose finger will hover above the button.  Well fear ye not.

Whilst others seek to scapegoat, punish and blame, we are here to remedy.  If multi-billionaire business man Donald Trump does jut his jaw and strap himself to the prow of Good Ship Republican, then we shall not throw our slings, arrows and foreign-made harpoons, nay! We will do what we can to ease his passage.

Come with us as we heal the Donald Trump campaign.  From afar.

1776. The Declaration of Independence is signed, and the Americans wangle their freedom.

A nation lost. A nation without which the song ‘I want to be in America,’ would be nonsensical. And poor old Britain! A country of umbrellas, gravy and the humble pickled egg lets an eventual global superpower slip through its grime-stained fingers.

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Chuck Norris forever lost to our sovereign shores.

As we await the EU Referendum to downgrade forty winks to thirty, Rick and Paul ask how many sheep is it possible to count without your brain running out of space.  How is it possible to just turn one’s consciousness off?  Why do teddy bears help so much?

Sleep is for the weak.  You snooze, you lose.

Posted by Rick on 14 Jan 2016 16:01pm

What is art?

The expression of creative skill and imagination, art, fluffy liberals would have you believe, is what makes us human.

Do not be fooled.

Anyone can be an artist.  Painters, sure.  Sculptors.  But singers too.  Actors.  People that strap on crash helmets and strut about like frightened turkeys.  Performance, they say, is art.  But for every David Bowie, there’s a million Katie Prices.  For every Prince, there’s a hundred artists formerly known as paupers.  For every Andy Warhol, there’s a Dandy Warhol.

Did you make the bed this morning?  No.  Well, that’s ART, that is.
