Yesterday I was half-listening to the radio, when Jo Whiley started playing this thing she’d downloaded off the Internet. “Slash dot dash, slash dot com”, over and over again. It sounded really cheap, some joke MP3 knocked up by one of this lot, once you’d heard thirty seconds you’d heard it all. I couldn’t work out why Whiley had got it and why she seemed to find it so funny. It was on quite low in the office so I couldn’t hear what she was saying, but she played a bit of Wire’s “Dot Dash” too – yesss, and? Then this morning she was playing it again – it sounded even worse, I couldn’t understand it, this joke hadn’t been that great once let alone twice.
And then it turned out to be the new Fatboy Slim single.
Which is at least quite a lot funnier.
