A couple more videos from the currently productive Socks. More Science, an inspired bit of follow up to last week's Science routine (subtitled and unsubtitled) from an audience suggestion, from which I can see more scope.
John Lemon (subtitled and unsubtitled) was inspired by a topical story which, as is the way with these things, isn't even much of a memory less than a week later. I should have learned the lesson that topical humour is the surest route to being forgotten by posterity. So what video do we do next? (At time of writing I already know what we've done next. Idiot that I am.)

*These stats are curious. Facebook views keep rising steadily for a month or two then, since I last checked, the two oldest videos have frozen. Not a single extra view or like or share or reach in 20 days? Suspicious. I have been doubting that these were real figures in the first place, as they are so dissimilar from the Youtube response. Now I really am dubious.
The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre do a tiny bit more Shakespeare in Halifax (Oct 26), Wolverhampton (Oct 28), Nottingham (Nov 4), and Goole (Nov 17) this autumn, returning with a brand new show in 2018. Stay tuned.
