That man is such a cheeky little bitch. It’s nearly as bad as the tromboner pictures. He even left his boots on.
While watching this last night, I told husband I wanted a Luxury Coffee apron. He said he wanted a poster of this. The confuser strikes again.

From Brighton to Dr Who, the Zoo, playing festivals, watching the Exorcist, myspace.com and their boy band pin up status, Julian Barratt takes Pi’s Bryony Taylor on a journey through time and space to the wonderful world of The Mighty Boosh…
this is one of the very few Boosh interviews out there that don’t include Noel! it’s always interesting how much Julian has to say when he doesn’t have to fight for the space to say it in.
but reader beware - even though this article is for a university publication, this is not university-level writing. i’m sure the author is a very nice person and very committed to a future in journalism. i’m equally sure that she’s never passed an English exam in her life.
yes, it’s bad enough that i felt the need to include a disclaimer. true Booshlrs will read it anyway! <3
I just realized that you can totally see Noel’s reflection in that picture he took and tweeted of Montreal.
And let’s just say: I see London, I see France…
The Extravagant Black Bat flower
The unusual Black Bat flower, Tacca chantrieri (Dioscoreales - Dioscoreaceae), is quite distinctive by the strange, unique, near black flowers. The flowers, which can grow up to 25 cm long, have four large, dark-purple bracts and long bracteoles, giving the inflorescence a striking appearance that superficially resemble a flying bat, a sinister face, or a mean tiger with whiskers.
Tacca chantrieri is an endangered species that occurs in tropical regions of SE Asia including Thailand, Malaysia, and southern China, particularly Yunnan Province.
The features of these flowers have been assumed to function as a ‘‘deceit syndrome’’ in which reproductive structures resemble decaying organic material attracting flies that facilitate cross-pollination (sapromyiophily). However, a study on pollination and mating in Tacca chantrieri populations from SW China, has shown that despite considerable investment in extravagant display, populations of this species are predominantly selfing and that flowers have several traits that promote autonomous self-pollination.
