I wonder if there is a Karl Pilkington Fan Club?

An excerpt from the Travel Diaries of Karl Pilkington (which will be arriving from Amazon - fingers crossed - tomorrow! http://www.amazon.co.uk/Idiot-Abroad-Travel-Diaries-Pilkington/dp/1847679269/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1287522565&sr=8-3)

"It's an odd one, the Chichen Itza. It was a place built by the original Mayan people and was known for sacrifices (Elton John sang a song called 'Sacrifice' – maybe that's why he's playing here) and ripping out people's hearts and cutting heads off. Not exactly Alton Towers, is it? So it's an odd thing to make into a tourist attraction. May as well start doing tours around Fred West's house if this is what people want."

I also ordered The World of Karl Pilkington (Amazon know what they're doing, I couldn't resist it when I saw it...): Pilkington's is a brilliant mind, locked inside a perfectly round head, and uncluttered by the unhelpful constraints of logic or common sense; factors that have lead him to such dazzling insights as 'you never see old men eating Twix bars' or that the 'Diary of Anne Frank' was 'an Adrian Mole sort of thing'

From Mexico deleted scene where he is musing over a Cactus that has some quite pretty yellow flowers on it: "Its almost like sticking lipstick on a fat woman in leggings. Its like you've got to do better than that like".

He is a comedy genius!!! Watch it, watch it, watch it!!!!  http://sky1.sky.com/an-idiot-abroad  (I should be getting paid for all this advertising!)
