Hello and welcome to A Slice Of Soap. As far as I’m concerned, some soaps do some things better than others. EastEnders? No one can touch it for grit and violence. Hollywoodoaks? Easily the most glamorous soap. Emmerdale? When it comes to soap-dodgers (geddit?), this is the one – courtesy of the Dingles – that outdoes all the others. But wit? Humour has always been, and will always be, the domain of Coronation Street.
EastEnders struggles to do ‘funny’ – witness the latest attempt involving Keith’s lottery ticket. About as funny as a wet weekend in Wigan. On the other side, with a simple picture, Corrie has me rolling on the floor laughing. Vernon, long after you’re gone, I will always remember you fondly because of this…. Ladies and gents – I can’t do it justice so I shall say no more. This is, without a doubt, the funniest thing on Coronation Street….
That’s it for now. Join me on Friday for more soap news and gossip. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me.
