Mad as hell continues to kick goals

Though I know that Shaun mIcallef hates sporting metaphors, particularly ones that involve olympic swimming pools, I have to hand it to him. Mad As Hell is the best half hour on television, and I once again marvel at its ability to cram in extra jokes by resorting to flash frames. These microseconds of inserted footage are actually against the law, but only if they are deemed to be persuading or coercing an audience to buy products or commit any acts clearly encouraged by the flash frame. I think Mad As Hell is pretty safe with this one, taken from the iview of the show, hence, that white arrow icon pointing salaciously at Stephen Fry's groin, as featured in far too many episodes of QI.
