About 18 months ago, for a time me and my then housemates became minorly obsessed with Sheriff John Bunnell, the overly earnest yet entirely hilarious host of ‘The World’s [for World read America’s] Wildest Police Chases’, as seen on the early-late night schedule on Five. From his resolute pro-police stance, through to his awfully laboured puns, down to his need to start any sentence by putting his scene in context (“New York City, New York State” he helpfully informs us), and back to his slight Daffy Duck American lisp, few offer more in the entertainment stakes. It became customary to adopt Bunnell speak, even when alone (“London, England. THIS guy thought he was just going to CLEAN his teeth with fluoride FREE toothpaste, but this BRUSH with the LAW left a sour TASTE in this lawbreaker’s MOUTH. And the finest State TROOPERS will be sure not to FLOSS over the details of this particular FELONY”)
Hence my extreme JOY to discover this SITE. If you’re a Bunnell fan, you’ll love it. If you don’t know who I’m talking about it, you’d best forget it.
