Smack the Pony (dating videos)

What follows is actual dialogue from a scene in the hilarious no-holds-barred British comedy series Smack the Pony, a kind of Monty Python with women. The scene is a supposed dating service video, featuring a couple. (It's the second scene in the clip)

Woman: "We are Apollina and Benji Maharshi and we are looking for a young, similar, attractive couple in the England area who want to meet up for evenings of beer and wine and fun. Maybe more. This is the first time we have done this but we both for some time want to swing. I very much want to go swinging. I could totally recommend my husband. He's quiet but uninhibited. He does everything. He does 'upstairs downstairs', 'half eaten samosa', 'deaf Rapunzel' and most Latin American rhythms. Also, the 'straight three in a bar'. And as for me, I don't want to be arrogant, but uh..... I can really make the puffin fly."

[Update - I removed the embedded video due to a technical issue with the file host player. I seem to have fixed the problem, but it persists for some people and the last thing I want to do is annoy my readers. The link will download the clip for your viewing pleasure.]

It was funny the first few times but could you put it inside the post instead of having it play every time you browse your blog

An annoyed frequent lurker

I was working with the file hosting site to get the autoplay feature to stop working, as I did select for it NOT to autoplay. This seems to be working now, but only once you close the browser. You may need to clear your browser cache. The autoplay feature seems to be disabled now as I wanted it. Apologies for the anooyment.

It was annoying me too.
