Australia had a long running comedy show on Saturday nights for many years when I was a wee little tacker called hey Hey It’s Saturday. One of my favourite characters was Dickie Knee. He was a head on a stick so of course you only ever saw the back of him. He was always hassling out one of the stars of the show Molly Meldrum and the short exchanges between the two were quite brilliant.
When I put a hat on my youngest daughter Marisah this morning before going out I burst out laughing as it reminded me exactly of what Dickie Knee looked like so I couldn’t resist a photo.
