    The world has really gone mad. It's the perfect time for it to return.

    But is it possible to parody and caricature madness?

    Roger Law covers this question in the article:



    Of course, Spitting Image was doing it decades ago...

    i alwats thought Spitting image had about 7 mins of good clips in 30 mins of crap

    But i did love the Queen Mum and her love of gin and nothing will ever top the Tory sketch when a waiter asked Mrs Thatcher out with the cabinet for Dinner

    What about the vegetables ?

    and she says They will have the same! loved that one

    i hope they do an annoying, irritating little Jimmy krankie ie mz Sturgeon

    I remember Nick Pearce told that joke on Dallas @Barbara Fan :lmao:

    I loved Spitting Image - John Cole was absolutely a favourite in our house and I think Ian Paisley had one too. The Queen and The Duke were brilliant and I remember Ronald Reagan pushing this big red button to see what it was. It ended the world :Clol:

    Im sure it was spitting image who had Ian Paisley in the church pulpit and when he opened his mouth and said very loudly "the people of Ulster..." all the hats blew off in the congregation
    that always made me chuckle

    For anyone wondering what Spitting Image might do with Paisley's successor, wonder no longer.

    I loved Spitting Image back in the 80's & 90's, time to bring it back. :)
