Mr Vesta

Estimated time to microwave this dinner - 2 minutes. Yeah right! It seems like progress bars and the the back of food boxes have a lot in common!

Ever feel like the life is being sucked out of you? Of course you do. Why else would be here, at the home (the epicentre even) of that kind of downbeat defeatist thinking? Good on ya! Welcome.

Anyway - here is an analogy to that way of thinking as Mr Vista attempts to simply heat up his frozen lunch. Is it that simple - yes. Is it that simple for him - luckily no, or I'd be out of a job.

Today's fine episode was sent in by writer Dom Carver. Dom's original script also made reference to the progress bar - but I think his idea is strong enough without. Take it away Dom...

Plus, hear all about Mr Vista on the BBC. He will feature on the Pods and Blogs show which is broadcast very early Tuesday morning. But perhaps its better to catch it online afterwards.
