Ronnie Barker

Rest in peace, Ronnie. As a kid — oh, and as an adult too :-) — I loved The Two Ronnies, Porridge and Open All Hours so it was with considerable sadness that I read of Ronnie Barker’s death this morning. On the bright side, look at the legacy the man left us: reams of some of the best British comedy. Ever.

“Is this a prayer, or a dedication on the Jimmy Young show?”
