Smack the pony where does all the fat go?
I had forgotten how funny these comedians were until I saw this clip. Doon Mackichan, Fiona Allen, Sally Phillips and Sarah Alexander are enormously talented. Back in 2019 they spoke about a re union of Smack the Pony and then of course the pandemic hit. Fingers crossed that it will happen soon.
When I saw this, I was reminded of an occasion when I wore spanx. They were industrial strength and as such I was unable to feel anything once they were on. I had notions of myself at the time and thought that I looked fabulous.
We were at an all-day brunch at a restaurant in Dubai and I was very merry indeed. I had a new long fishtail style skirt that had a beautiful multi colored paisley pattern and I really did think that I was the bees’ knees.
Anyhoo, I had ordered drinks at the bar and was going back to my table with them when I nearly tripped up. I looked down to see my beautiful skirt almost around my ankles. With my lovely new spanx on show for everyone to see. In true Irish style I did not spill the drinks. The tray was placed gracefully onto a table and I pulled my skirt up whilst checking to see if anyone had noticed.
I was thrilled that I had gotten away with such an embarrassment. However, upon my next trip to the bar I caught the eye of a really cute guy who was with his friends. One of them waved over to me and said ‘Spanx for the memories’. I scurried back to my seat with a crimson face. When I confided to my friends about the incident, they all a good giggle.
All the best
