Mr. Bean used to literally make me gag I would laugh so hard...anyone remember the one when he was afraid to jump off the diving bored?? lol...I'm laughing right now.

The Young Ones kicked butt!!!...It used to come on Comedy Central when I was in high school..right when I got in the door. Awesome show...and Lemmy was their neighbor!! Motorhead!! \m/
