Karl Pilkington

I hope everyone has had a chance to watch the EXTRAS Christmas special. For that matter, I hope they have had a chance to watch the show period. Brilliant stuff from the team the brought us the original British The Office.
Anyways, found out that they also put out podcasts and started in radio long before the shows. The podcast is officially the most downloaded on Earth in fact. So last night I discovered it and listened and laughed myself silly.
Also, me and the "star" of the show seem to have a little bit of similar quirkiness when speaking. From the wiki on it: "Karl's idiolect... [includes] correct English that has been misspoken (eg. 'squoze')."
