BBC's iPlayer goes up to 11

The phrase up to eleven is famous in the right pop culture circles.

You know how amps have a volume dial that goes up to ten? These ones go to eleven.

What else goes to 11? Why, the BBC's iPlayer volume too!

Ha Ha!

Is it weird that i find that so funny?

Made me think of Derek Smalls saying


"We're very lucky in the band in that we have two visionaries, David and Nigel, they're like poets, like Shelley and Byron. They're two distinct types of visionaries, it's like fire and ice, basically. I feel my role in the band is to be somewhere in the middle of that, kind of like lukewarm water."

I find this a mild source of amusement too. It's like someone in the iPlayer team wanted to include a little joke in the final version of the excellent iPlayer. Bit like those easter eggs you get from time to time (the ones hidden in software not the chocolate ones).
