A very Merry Christmas from Statler and Waldorf

Waldorf and I are huge fans of Les Miserables. We were lucky enough to get tickets for the opening night at the Barbican Theatre, back in 1985, and have been addicted ever since. As a free gift to all of our loyal readers we give you one of our favourite scenes (first 40 seconds is introduction).

UPDATE: Waldorf and I have been unindated with emails from readers guffawing with laughter watching the clip imagining Monsieur Thenardier as Brian Coleman or Andreas Tambourides and Madame Thenardier as Lynne Hillan or Joanna Tambourides. Waldorf and I can only condemn such wicked thoughts in the minds of our readers. Really.

We can only pass on the top comment from the YouTube page:

"The Thernadiers are scum....but damn, you gotta love em!!"

Now who could possibly say that of any of our Barnet politicians?
