You have got to be kidding me! You've never heard of Sellers? Have you recently arrived from planet Zorg?

Little story about Sellers.

Late 1 night Michael Bentine heard a knock on his door. He opened the door to see Sellers there stark naked.

"Do you know a good tailor?", Sellers asked him  [;D]

You should be aware by now, my good doctor, that the only thing someone from Kiwiland is well educated about is sheep and their dung.

Good point, Jim.

But nonetheless, has the poor chap never heard of The Pink Panther (the original - not the dreadful Steve Martin remake that is about as funny as a nasty case of piles nor the highly coloured feline cartoon series) or Dr Strangelove (a truly classic film)?

Peter sellers is great.. and I loved the pink panther!!!

Now  your not serious about your title obviously you are  joking because of their features simularities  as there is what thirty some years between births? LOL  EINSTEIN being older sellers born in 1925 I believe...?

It is a rather striking resemblance between the two of them.....

The NZ lad is surely too dense to know about the finer things in life, including good comedy. For heaven's sake he assumed an alias of an explosive and didn't even get that right! C4M? Really now!

Yes, your right Doctor B., I was harsh - the intellectual pygmies of the world do need our understanding.

C4, please accept my apologies - and know that I have begun the process of working with you local authorities on a getting you a keeper to hold your hand in the dark. This keeper will also take you to the toilet, help you dress and be sure that you are fed each day. They will not, however, interfere with your attempts to create language on the Amiga 68000 you have.

Best wishes C4, I do hope you are not too overwhelmed by these difficulties. And again, I do apologize for taking a disabled person to task.

HI C4!

I have been in contact with the authorities in you hometown. They have been very kind to me and very understanding.

I am scheduled for a psychiatric evaluation here at home this coming Thursday. It was a quickly arranged appointment as they feel I am very sick and possibly dangerous.   

I have no idea why. Do you?

Do forget Michael Bentine's "Potty Time",
 (An appropriate title as its contents were similar to those of a chamberpot).

I love the out takes of the Pink Panther as Sellers was a terrible giggler. The best is the one where he has to pretend that someone has farted in a lift. An assistant had to make a noise to indicate when they should start acting like they have noticed the fart. The assistant blew a raspberry and Sellers did about twenty takes because it tickled his sense of humour.

Another scene that got him giggling was where he had to walk along a corridor tapping wooden panels searching for a secret entrance. When he found it he had to say "It is a door" in that terrible Clousseau French accent (Steve Martin take note - that's how it shoud be done).

He couldn't manage it. Every time he tried to say it he started giggling. They tried so many times without success that in the end the director had to call an early lunch.
