HAMSTER DEMOLITION DERBY
.and you've got some cotton reels
I certainly have
And what are you going to do with them?
I'm going to get my hamster to knock them down in his play-ball.
You think he'll do that?
I think he shall.
Aren't those play balls
..I've got to tell you
this and I know you're going to think it's apocryphal and
I'm sure you're ahead of me in this; but I was once filming
for London Weekend Television at a Primary School just outside
London and it was their Harvest Festival.
Do they still have a Harvest Festival Aliss? Do they still
give kids daffodils for them to take home and grow?
I think so.
Did you ever do that Martha?
Yeah, take a daffodil home. You either got a black and white
photo or a colour photo depending on how good your daff was.
Indeed yes, mine was black and white.
They don't like to stream kids like that any more, but I
think you know the daffodil was a good motif for life, what
do you say?
So we were in the corridors and this was true and there used
to be a Spark at London Weekend who'll remain nameless, and
out in the corridor came this ball you see
.and a certain
process goes into motion once you se a ball rolling towards
Aliss you can understand this can't you?
Yeah very hard, to try and get it through the door, which
becomes your goal you see at the end of the corridor.
And he really
."Bang!" and out it went
and he said, " I'll go and get your ball kids"
wasn't a ball, it was one of those hamster things, with the
hamster trundling along inside it!
Quite true that is
.He caught it with the outside of
the boot and swerved it straight through the door and when
we got there brer hamster was fine
.while Baker whispers
"Kiddies" in the background)
No brer hamster was absolutely fine. He put his full weight
So what kind of ball is it your hamster's inside at the moment?
It's a see-through plastic ball.
It's clear is it, because you can get them like Lucazade
No this is normal.
His name is..?
Okay as in Marshall and
So off you go, this is fantastic. Send her £900 worth
of stuff.We've got a hamster in one of those balls, going
at a load of cotton reeels. This is Barnum and Bailey
"..SMALL TINNEY CRASH!"
Did you get that?
Wasn't that sweet?
