Monday Funday: Good Carma


Next stop… Gareth Southgate

Southgate underground station in London was temporarily renamed after England manager Gareth Southgate last week by Transport for London.

According to the BBC, “commuters approved of the signs, saying they represent Southgate’s character”. In that case, Monday Funday is looking forward to visiting a station that’s well-organised, smart and has a passion for waistcoats.

Good Carma

There are lots of things Monday Funday associates with laughter – clowns, comedy falls and Londoners’ inability to cope with warm weather to name a few.

Car insurance, on the other hand, is definitely not one of them, which is why we salute insurer Direct Line for commissioning a bundle of podcasts with UK comedy legend Richard Herring. You can have a listen to the episodes – entitled the ‘Good Carma podcasts’ – here.

One from the ha-ha-harchives…

You’ll no doubt remember when actor – and Cold Feet royalty – James Nesbitt starred in a series of spots for the Yellow Pages back in the mid-noughties. This one sees the Northern Irish actor bounce from a yoga class to a chiropractor in less than 50 seconds. Don’t ever underestimate yoga.
