Congrats Rowan Atkinson!

Yes, Queen Elizabeth II has just named this man a Commander of the Order of The British Empire. Here he is putting his new title into practice, giving his first order as he commands Teddy to go attack France. But seriously, congratulations to this beloved British comedian who has given us so much laughter through both his Mr. Bean and Blackadder TV series.

Extremely appealing caricature Pete!
I just discovered my dads old copy of 'Blackadder ~ The Whole Damn Dynasty' and in his immortal words "I'm as excited as a masochist who's just been arrested by the Spanish Inquisition"

And in a particularly cunning twist, while Mr. Atkinson received his CBE, Baldrick actor Tony Robinson has just been knighted! Who'd have thought?

You captured Atkinson's likeness quite well, Mr. Emslie! I've been meaning to watch more of Blackadder and Mr. Bean and I've been finding both of them quite hilarious and timeless.

Hey Pete - Just saw your comment on my blog; thanks so much for your kind words. Nice to know some people are still reading my posts! I'm sorry I wasn't aware of your own blog until now--great depiction of Rowan Atkinson here; it's perfect! Take care and I'll be back for another visit soon.

Hi Pam! Yes, I'm always interested in other blogs that are dedicated to mid-20th Century nostalgia. I've been looking in on yours for some time now and am happy to link to it. Glad you popped in for a visit here!
