Socks Mrs T song on the front of Chortle
The Socks Mrs Thatcher song from yesterday has been honoured with the video slot on the front page of Chortle. Yes, I still call it a front page or front cover cos I'm old school. Enjoy it while it's there. Steve, Bennett the editor, was running a video contest with a cash prize which we entered but didn't win for a couple of months. He's now given that up as only a few people were entering it, probably me & four others, and the ad revenue came to pennies. So videos are free again, but it's still flattering to be the one that's chosen.
At time of writing, the video has attracting 700 viewings, making it our fastest-growing video since The Pope Resigns. For the record, here's the Top Ten viewing figures from the last few months:
Top 20 Horse Meat Gags - 53,065
