We wish Kilroy was here……..
In view of the suspension of Robert Kilroy-Silk by the BBC, several other TV stations are reported to be eagerly chasing the signature of the great double-barrelled tour de force.... possibly.
Picture the scene at TVCorp’s executive think tank lounge. Ptolomy Theakston-Willoughby is chairing a meeting of his brightest, youngest creme de la creamiest gurus. The problem on the agenda – how to solve their moribund morning slot……..
"Look luvs, Kilroy is hot, hot, hot! The Beeb has blown him out, more fool them! We can offer him a deal, a great deal! People will flock to his show if…if we can offer him the right package.
"We’re talking controversy….
"We’re talking big, big guests"…
"What, like Vanessa Feltz?"
"We’re talking an a.m. programme of R and J proportions"
"R and J?"
"Richard and Judy!"
"We’re talking a total mega morning revamp situation for our a.m. schedules. We want a title…. Something that keeps Kilroy’s name in it……so people, let’s brain storm, let’s think out of the box, let's salute the flagpole and let’s press that envelope for all its worth!"…
"And let’s do it now!"
"OK, we’ll need something snappy, something to go with his name… something like ’controversial’ - with a k - because Kilroy is ‘Kontroversial’…
"Now we’re getting somewhere…. But we’ll need another word for the title….. Kilroy, what does he do?… he talks, right….. he’s a great ‘communicator’ isn’t he?
"That’s it, we’ve only gone and bloody-well done it!
Kilroy Komminucates……. Bloody brilliant!!
"Gentlemen, I believe we have our title….
Kontroversial Kilroy Kommunicates …. Or K.K.K. for short"………………………........
Hmmmmm, I wonder what Des O’Connor is doing…
