      Your work is a genuine continuation of the style of humor made popular by Monty Python, Michael O'donoghue, Buck Henry et al. You're so good at it that, IMHO you should never let anyone persuade you to change it. You've nailed it! Please keep it up!

      I love these... even if some of the info is wrong as cited by others who have commented. mY husband says trust but verify... I just enjoy the presentation and trust him to tell me I am wrong and that those I read and listen to are wrong.
