Dear Jimmy Carr,

as a fan of this blog, I know that you've read our letter to David Mitchell. You're sitting there, in your desk chair wondering "Why me next? These two girls are already going to be best friends with David, can they really have more than one best friend?" Well don't worry. We are open to many variations of this friendship. There is the version where we are all best friends in one group. Where my co-writer Katie and I are best friends with the two of you individually which requires us to split our time with you (something we are definitely willing to do). You can decide or we can have a discussion with the four of us. Whichever is easiest for you, really.

Get off the phone with the nice people with the white coats #trainwrecks, I haven't lost my mind. It's more like if I just assume that Jimmy Carr, world (our world at least) famous comedian/host/adorable man is a fan of our blog, then maybe one day he actually will be. It never hurts to have hope, people!

So Jimmy, continuing with our tradition (one letter is totally a tradition, stop judging.) here is a list of reasons why we should be the best of friends.

1. What better reason than we adore your stand-up/hosting skills and really, really just want to be friends. We already love what you do, which I'm guessing is something you really love to do and so we can talk about that. That's what friends do.

2. We enjoy British panel shows. Shows that you seem to know a lot about because you are either a guest on or hosting all of them. This leads us to believe we have similar interests which is also a major component of friendship.

3. You host 8 Out of 10 Cats and The Big Fat Quiz of the Year. We read the newspaper. All of these things deal with current events. Which, if we were friends, we could discuss. Have I convinced you yet?

4. We don't care about your tax scandal. I looked into it after it was referenced on 86 (ish) panel shows and wanted to know what was going on, I read all about it and said "That sucks but I love him anyways." We still believe you're a moral human being and that's really what matters. Friends have to believe in one another!

5. You have the best laugh. It is big and really fills up a room. Many people tell us that we also have big laughs and so we won't make fun of yours, we will embrace it. It doesn't hurt that because it is so funny, that anything you say that makes you laugh will also make us laugh.

6. The way you wrangle people on your shows. It is only a skilled hand and gentle(ish) tongue that could truly get those people in line. And yet you do it, and you do it well. I happen to be known as the slave driver who makes jokes among my friends and my co-writer, Katie, is the perfect person to practice on. How about it?

For these reasons, and many more do we want to be best friends with you. Just think it over, and if you want to get in contact with us, to discuss our new friendship (or you are reading this blog and are not Jimmy Carr but would like to get in contact with us); you can do so at the following:
