Ricky Gervais – Again
Yeah, I know, another blog post about Ricky but I make no apologies. Outside close friends and family he is my favourite person on the planet.

There is beautuiful irony in the fact that Ricky, in his most recent audiobook – Law and Order (extract here) – made reference to a forum on the Landover Baptist Church Website. What I don't link he realised is that the Landover site is iteself, in fact, a brilliant parody of ultra right wing Christian nonsense.
So there we have it. The creator of one of the best mockumentaries ever seen on television – The Office – appears to have been duped by a website – itself a brilliant parody.
And the thing is. I just know that Ricky would be the first to admit he was taken in (if indeed he was) and then pay tribute to the Landover site. That's just the sort of thoroughly decent bloke he is.
