Zip up all the way, much easier to get in and out of and adaptable to changes in temperature (if it's too warm to wear zipped but too cool to take off). Anything I have to pull over my head had better be a sweater (pullover for you Brits) -- bonus points if it's a gloriously tacky 1970s Fair Isle. ahdn_george_06

Eh, people here call them sweaters sometimes too. But yes, I much prefer pullover sweaters/jumpers than pullover hoodies.

I wear both kinds a lot but generally I prefer zip-ups. About half the time I wear a pullover I get momentarily stuck when I try to take it off.

Love one another.

I’ve no idea, I’ve never tried either, but I’ll choose custard creams because a) they sound better and b) Canary Creams 😉

Custard creams, bourbons are pitiful biscuits. I'll eat them of course because duh biscuits but like they're kinda sad. You think you'll get chocolaty goodness but you do not. A custard cream doesn't lie to you, it does exactly what it says on the tin.

Personally, I'm with ASJ. Custard creams are much better, and bourbons have this off-taste for me. I'll still eat them though.

Of course we will, we're not monsters.

 

Bourbons kinda remind me of dust.

Do you have a favourite comedian?

My all-time favourite is Jim Gaffigan and John Mulaney is #2. 

Love one another.

The only comedians I've followed extensively are Neel Kolhatkar, an Australian who does stand-up and writes/directs/acts in skits, and Key & Peele, whose numerous hilarious skits I have spent far too many hours of my life binge-watching on YouTube. a-hard-days-night-paul-7 I also adore Robin Williams in everything I've ever seen him in.

I think, generally, my taste skews towards comedians who can do really accurate and funny impressions.

Not really a big fan of any specific comedians but i love political satire and other types of social commentary.

I prefer comedy in the sitcom form to stand-up stuff, but I usually enjoy both.

The greatest comedian of my lifetime, without question, has been the late great Bill Hicks. We lost him to pancreatic cancer in 1994 at just 32. He was stunning, and redefining comedy. Some of his attitudes don't stand up so well 25 years later, but much of his social commentary and political observation is as fresh and pertinent today as it was the day it was written... some more-so...

Here he's commenting on drugs... and the Beatles...

What set Bill apart was that he was a philosopher as much as a comedian, you'd leave a show of his with things to think about as much as he amused you, or made you squirm in your seat at his obscenity or challenging of society's hypocrisies, and he had an underpinning philosophy that may say he was a dreamer (but he wasn't the only one)...

If you don't know Bill Hicks, William Melvin Hicks, you really should start Googling...

Bill's such a hard act, no one wanted to follow him. I often wonder what'd he'd make of the world now, would he retreat like Tom Lehrer who cannot find anything to parody now because it's being done better every day by the 1%?  Would he find a new way of explaining the utter goldmine of stupidity that is the internet and its associated technologies? Perhaps he'd be another Snowden, we'll never know.

I have many favourites, but to name one: the late great John Clarke, who with Brian Dawe brilliantly counter-punched the pompous. This skit is the most quotable thing since Monty Python:
