It is our village's eleventh birthday so the admin and dinner committee put on a special celebratory dinner this month. We assembled outside the community centre at 5:30 and we were shown to our seats by the Fawlty Towers Characters, Basil, Sybil, and Manuel. "Fawlty Towers" was a famous English sitcom in the late 1970's. Basil and his wife Sybil ran a guest house in Torquey in England. It was hilarious and not politically correct for these days. John Cleese, Prunella Scales and Andrew Sachs were the actors for the main characters and they were so funny you had tears running down your face.
Now days there are theatre groups which have impersonators entertaining you at dinners. Many of the original skits took place in the dinning room where Manuel from Barcelona is learning English and how to be a waiter. Basil and Sybil are continuously bickering at one another while Basil is often making gaffs.
So last night at our special monthly dinner in the village we were entertained by these actors trying to serve us nuts, bread rolls and butter in the most unconventional ways like tossing them at us or emptying the crate of rolls onto the table. They kept us laughing in between courses. Basil continuing to try to train Manuel to be a waiter. Manuel keeps misunderstanding Basil's English instructions. Sybil keeps telling off Basil.
