The Duck

In 2009, our favourite C4 commissioning editor was using the word “Obama” as an adjective (”That’s so Obama” / “We’re looking for something a bit more Obama at the moment”). Earlier this year he was taking people to the park and forcing them to pitch their ideas before they reached the duck pond.

Now he’s back and his latest method of articulating himself involves talking dirty. He was heard saying in response to an edit put in front of him: “It’s good, but it’s not fucking me. At the moment it’s just flashing me a bit of pube. I want it to bend me over and fuck me.”

FYI We hear there’s an even more eccentric chap at the BBC. That can’t be true, can it? Email stories to
