Fred Dagg dead

Dang! That's tough. John Clarke creator of Fred Dagg, a Kiwi farrrmer with seven sons all called Trev,  died suddenly on 9th April while walking in the outback. We live such compartmentalised, parochial lives [nope: globalisation makes very little impact on what we hear or hear about] that we can go through our entire lives thinking that our local comedians are funny; when we haven't ever heard anything ease against which we may compare the [dreadful] fare which, say, RTE serves up. New Zealand is the far side of the world.  aNNyway, some mental environmental tribs: via Metafilter
