This wasn't going to be a Silly Week post but when I read about the antics of the bear puppet Sooty today, it kind of turned into one.  Sooty and his pal the dog Sweep [later joined by female panda Soo] kept me entertained as a child and I still love them.  But it seems that Sooty has gone off the rails lately for today, whilst recording an episode for a new TV series, he hit the British magician Paul Daniels rather too hard in the face with a pizza.  Mr Daniels ended up in hospital with a black eye but is said to be being a good sport about the incident.  Sooty, who has obviously been watching too much television, is reported to be in hiding.  I blame the parents myself.

The pizza in question, I am informed, was a Margherita  and, just in case Sooty needs some fresh supplies, here are the pizze a friend and I enjoyed in my nearest pizzeria on Monday evening:

Pizza alla porchetta

Pizza alla diavola

We could have done with you in the Italian Parliament this afternoon, Sooty and if you need a safe house, you can always come and stay with Simi and me in Sicily!

Sooty turns violent... It must be a sign of the times!

Silly and Scruptious all in one!

When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie! Silly Sooty!

It must, Cherie. Thank you, Metal Man. I love him though, Saretta!

No Sooty in my life but thank you for bringing back lovely Dean Martin to my mind. I was totally swayed in my youth whenever he appeared on the screen. Such a velvety voice!

Hi, Claude. I loved him too and I adore that song.
