Robo-chat hilarity

The Old Spice mandroid's fraught romantic adventures have brought much joy to the StopPress towers, although some have wondered whether it's sexist or a parody of sexist ads featuring the product as an aphrodisiac. Now he (it?) is back with a new sports talkshow.  

The first star of the show is NFL star Drew Brees, and there are more to come. 

Speaking of chat show parodies, the first series of the Late Night Big Breakfast on TV One came to an end last night. The Spinoff has some good stories on the stars of what it (and we) believe was one of the funniest local shows on TV, so if you want some more comical nonsense, check it out here.  

And if you want even more of it, you can't go past a renowned master of the art, Zach Galifianakis.
