Apropos of Nothing & By Way of Escapism: Cunk on Earth

If you aren't familiar with the new Netflix mockumentary -and you need some brief escapes from reality these days (that's all of us) - and you love dry British humor - I bet you will enjoy Cunk on Earth. Diane Morgan is brilliant in her deadpan delivery and she interviews a dozen plus Oxford, Cambridge and other distinguished professors just to ask them about why Michelangelo's David doesn't have an "Arsehole" and what is the meaning of Abraham Lincoln's ab tattoos...She even concludes with some muses on AI and human-machine future.

Love this show - I've recommended it to everyone I know. About the experts who participate: I've seen tweets and clips indicating that the professors are completely in on it. They're told to answer the questions like they're talking to a curious, well-meaning child. The results are hilarious.

Co-sign. There have been some fun discussions of whether the profs are in on the joke.
