In the fall season...

I sent my sister an email earlier, I thought I'd colour her day with some of my purple prose. Well, not purple prose, as such, but the details of a new sitcom starring our friend with the God complex from across the water.

'One And A Half Radge.'

In this ribald tale of one man's journey through life, Mr. Sheen plays my good self in a series of elongated stories from my time on this Earth.

-Like the time Joan Collins delivered me a Four Star Pizza while doing research for a part in a James Woods-scripted mini series called 'Eight Slices Of Life.'

-Like the time I went around the pubs of Glasnevin to show off a perfectly preserved snot in the shape of Martin McGuinness's head.

-Like the time I owned up to my mam about mitching off school with Angeline Ball from The Commitmentettes.

-Like the time myself and Fitzbollix were so drunk we thought we were pissing up a wall. We were, in fact, pissing on a statue of Julie Andrews having sex with Ronan Keating.

-Like the time I accidentally elbowed Cilla Black in the nuts, before being kicked out of Coppers.

-Like the time I jelly wrestled with Brian Kerr, John Ritter and LaToya Jackson. Funny story actually...

-Like the time I commissioned Larry David to write a sitcom about Aaron Sorkin writing a drama about George Romero directing a horror based on my six years with the Jesuits on Great Denmark Street, before things got far too complicated and we shut up shop.

-Like the time I ran out of things to say and employed Gerry Adams' unemployed voiceover artist to do my talking for me in a stern Nordie brogue.

Yep, it's going to be good. And for those of you wondering why it'll be called 'One And A Half Radge,' it's partially as a paean to Sheen's last day job, and partially because I figured the midget from 'In Bruges' would make a deadly narrator.

I want to collaborate on this movie/dream/project.

Sneeo - We'll discuss terms next time our paths cross. I'm thinking an 87/13 split, just to be awkward.

He gets a girlfriend and we don't see him for dust.

Still here, I just have nothing. Y'know?

Holemaster said...

I sure do know. Thank God I'm not a writer.

Funny you should post this while I stare at a blank 'Compose' page.
