Good Next Week (Good News Week 18/2/08: closing)

Yes, these are a week late… but you see some of them related to this week’s stories. See we often tape two episodes at a time and then replace the end jokes of the second episode with more up to date ones just before they go to air. If that sounds confusing, good, it’s probably best to leave a bit of mystery around. Anyway, hopefully you got more than enough jokes last week… and if not you get this extra helping this week so quit yer whinging.
