Brian Blessed delivers baby in a park, bites cord, licks baby's face
There I was this morning, meandering to the tube station through drizzly Wood Green, listening to Midweek with Libby Purves on BBC Radio 4. I'm pretty sure that's what most of the locals have got on their enormous white Beats headphones too, I'm not claiming to be original. But then something happened that was genuinely incredible. Or it would be if it had come out of the mouth of any other man. But this was Brian Blessed, and Brian was plugging his new memoir, Absolute Pandemonium. On the basis of this, I will be buying the audiobook immediately. No further description needed, just listen. It's astonishing.
