Funny Garage Door Videos

Leave a comment

And the challenges just keep on coming… Last month accountancy and now this month I’ve got a customer who installs garage doors.

Ooh, now there’s an interesting subject to discuss. NOT!!

You’d think I’d be in real trouble wouldn’t you? Thankfully though, YouTube to the rescue…

The Budget Garage Door Solution

I’m not going to ruin this video with any intro, but just to say that some members of the fairer sex may not approve of this particular garage door solution. Hilarious though!

The Classic Just For Laughs Clip

You can always rely on Just For Laughs for funny clips involving the public. This one’s not bad, but it doesn’t feature as many funny reactions as they normally do. Although I do like the guy who tries to run up and stop the garage door with his hands.

The Specsavers Kid Garage Door Advert

One of a number of great adverts done by Specsavers featuring their advertising slogan, “Should’ve gone to Specsavers”. The basic premise of each advert is a funny situation where the protagonist mistakes one thing for another because they can’t see properly, hence they “Should’ve gone to Specsavers”!

In Conclusion?

Challenge accepted. Give me an awful subject matter and I’ll cover it.

Bring it on!!

Accountancy vs Lion Taming

5 Comments

So, here’s a challenge, how to write a blog that makes reference to accounting services?

Hmmm… Tricky… Y’see, accountancy is a very boring subject.

Listen to an accountant talk about tax loopholes for even a few seconds and you will quickly feel your life force draining away as your brain fights with your eternal soul for the right to shut down.

Monty Python to the rescue…

Due to their extremely dull nature, accountants have over the years been the butt of many a comedy sketch, the masters of which were and always will be Monty Python.

And the best Python sketch featuring an accountant has to be Vocational Guidance Counsellor:

Did you enjoy it?

No?!? What’s wrong with you? Are you an accountant? Right, off you go, you’re not even a proper woman!

A necessary evil

All joking aside though, accountants are very definitely a necessary evil. From supposedly simple book-keeping and self assessment tax returns to VAT returns, statutory accounts, corporation tax and payroll services, the world of taxation is a minefield.

Combine that with risk of severe penalties for mistakes (even innocent ones), it’s little wonder that self employed individuals like myself would much rather get on with the day job and earn the money in the first place!

That way, the accountants in question will no doubt save them enough time and money to allow them to spend the evening watching their favourite Monty Python clips.

Many thanks to my accountant!! We love you really…
