Dave Allen “The Clock”

This classic sketch from comedy great, Dave Allen deserves to be the first post on Shatire. Shown on the BBC in 1990, it's just as relevant today.

“We spend our lives on the run. We get up by the clock, eat and sleep by the clock, go to work by the clock, get up again, go to work – and then we retire. And what do they fucking give us? A clock.”
