"The truth is that some people will always find comedy to be a useful way of releasing tension, whatever the cause. Being of no specified religion and as someone who views the world with a mixture of suspicion and panic, I am certainly one of those people." John Oliver

"Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying yes begins things. Saying yes is how things grow. Saying yes leads to knowledge. "Yes" is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say yes." Stephen Colbert
MADAGASCAR FACT BOX
-- Madagascar has been an island for more than 50 years. However, Madagascar is tethered to the seabed with string, and if a shark ever bites through that string, Madagascar will float across the Indian Ocean and smash into the west coast of Australia, starting a war.
-- More people live in Madagascar than you or I have had hot dinners.
-- You can see Madagascar from space and vice-versa, so I'm told, and who am I to doubt these self-proclaimed door-to-door astronauts who keep banging on my door to tell me these things. Well, congratulations to Madagascar and space, but I'm still not going with you in your special rocket. I got a family now.
-- Ironically, space actually begins 100 kilometers above Madagascar, whereas the African mainland is 250 kilometers away, which means that Madagascar is 60% closer to space than to Africa, which means that Madagascar is effectively a UFO.
-- Madagascar is bigger than the Beatles (geographically).
-- No man is an island, but if Madagascar was a man, it would be called Umberto and would, at 226,000 square miles, be the biggest man in the world.
-- And also, if Madagascar was better at sports, I'd probably know some more interesting facts about it. So it's only got itself to blame.
