Just for a laugh, someone decided the studio lights would flash every time Ben said the word 'Flash', which you'd expect him to do at a Flash Sale. Of course Ben needed no further encouragement and managed to say 'Flash' about thirteen times in the first minute! I expected a few bulbs to fuse any second!
Ben then got everyone in the studio to shout 'Sale!' every time he said 'Flash!' but that was a comedy disaster - there was no synchronisation so no one said 'Sale!' at the same time. So that idea didn't really take off because it sounded something like this: "Flash!" "Sale!" "Sale!" "Sale!" "Sale!" (short pause) "Sale!" (much longer pause) "Sale!"
What's that old showbiz saying about how you can never rehearse enough??? It was difficult to keep a straight face at this point, but the show must go on...
We began demonstrating the lovely Flectere system of dies. Flectere is all about the curves and dimension; I've written about Flectere before on this blog, more than once, but I feel they are so radically different and cards made in this way are almost invariably really eye-catching.
I showed Ben a card with a lovely picture of a mushroom on the front. Ben said he would love to receive a card like that one because he is a Fun Guy (fungi).
Older jokes than that one probably DO exist but you'd have to ask your great-grandparents!
