That old adage might be true. Laughter could really be the best medicine. It’s being prescribed liberally to Hot Stuff, my poorly boyfriend at the moment. He seems to be mainlining the back catalogue of ‘Carry On’ films and giggling away to himself. Today I bring you one of my favourite comedy moments just in case you need a dose of the giggles too. Everyone in the UK over a certain age is likely to remember this chandelier scene from ‘Only Fools and Horses’. Even though I’ve seen it on many occasions it’s never failed to raise my spirits or another laughing fit.
Of course I knew the first time that I saw this that it didn’t bode well for an enormously expensive piece of ornate lighting A chandelier was almost certainly going to come to an untimely end. That was plainly obvious. It was the manner in which it happened that demonstrated the scriptwriter’s absolute genius.
