My google skills must have failed me because I can find no evidence of her claim. Can anyone help? If those cassettes exist I'd love to get hold of them.
Might I suggest the Chai Tea Latte, sir?
I only stumbled across Jeeves and Wooster 6 months or so ago, so if this has been here before, let me know and I'll remove it.
That being said, I found this and felt the need to share and thought you all might appreciate.

“I say, Jeeves,” I remarked. “This is a puzzler and no mistake.”
“Indeed, sir?” replied Jeeves, holding the shoe he was polishing up to the light and inspecting it carefully. There was something about the tone of the fellow’s voice that I didn’t like. Perhaps it was the hangover I was nursing. But it seemed to me that Jeeves had managed to fill the two syllables of the word “indeed” with something very like impertinence. And I was not in the mood for impertinence. I wouldn’t go so far as to say I was feeling disgruntled, but I was far--very far--from gruntled.
I replied with some asperity. “When I say, ‘This is a puzzler, Jeeves,’ I rather expect an offer of help. Not the implication that I am a fat-head to whom the smallest thing is a puzzle.”
Jeeves put the shoe back down on the hotel carpet and addressed me with a suitably respectful demeanor. “I regret that I gave offence sir. None was intended. May I be of any assistance?”
“I certainly hope so, Jeeves,” It was hard to stay angry with the man, and besides I needed his considerable brainpower—the man eats only fish—to help solve the current mystery. Without budging from my place on the sofa, I pointed the remote control toward the large television ensconced in the hotel’s wooden console. “That fellow, who’s always solving mysteries—what’s his name?” I began. It was on the tip of my tongue.
“Sherlock Holmes, sir?”
“Good Lord, no. I’m referring to this chap, the medical man—there.” Jeeves turned his gaze toward the screen and squinted for a moment.
“I believe that is Dr. Gregory House,” he declared. “Star of the eponymous American television show.”

Mods, if this isn't on-topic enough, feel free to delete.
Also - off-topic - is anyone else having trouble with LJ formatting? Not being able to put in cuts or italics or anything?
So I just thought I'd mention that the kind and curtious provider of all things
So, erm, there you are I suppose.
(Did anybody else realize that Fionna Gilles was in "Hound of the Baskervilles" on Granada? Well, I was surprised... anyway...)

As I was fooling around avoiding responsibilities, I came across Uncyclopedia. The results of my extensive research were promising, yet disappointing towards the end.
1. "Having a gay day" Article about homosexuality. Oh, I say! Look who are in the spotlights?
No, I won't say we're entirely absent from The Dictionary (we are, after all, world record holder for whale wanking 1929) but surely, Comrades, I believe
WE CAN DO BETTER.
Let's pour some tea now, and discuss our brilliant tactics.
Edit: Now pimping with some ol' art.
Yes. It is.
I don't know if somebody's posted about this or not...
Somebody by the username of xinyuActor on Youtube has posted each track from "The World of Jeeves and Wooster" by Anne Dudley. This includes themes from the show (Title song, walking sequence, etc), some of the songs sung in the show (Nagasaki, Minnie the Moocher, etc) and general songs from the Wodehouse era sung by Hugh Laurie ("If I Had A Talking Picture Of You", etc).
The vids begin here with the theme song (which some love, and some detest.) and continue through seventeen tracks of slightly cheesy, commercial-y market-y fun. Then again, I often find commercial-y market-y things fun, because I'm American.
So everyone who is interested, welcome under the cut. All your answers will be screened. And don't google please, let's make this play fair, OK? :-)

Upd. The quiz is finished. And the winner is hughville! Congratulations! :-)
Here's a preview of what you can look forward to in the coming weeks.
( But here's some stuff to hold you off till then )
Inspired by the stellar success of thersl_bday_drive a handful of fans have gathered together to initiate the hl_bday_drive - a charity drive to join the forces of different communities and fandoms around the actor Hugh Laurie for a good cause.
In raising money for Save the Children, we want to give the fans and ourselves the opportunity to celebrate Hugh Laurie´s 50th birthday on 11th June, 2009.
You can knit, record a video of you, make a fanvid, write a fanfic, draw pictures, make other graphics (to promote the drive or for others to put on their cafepress shirts), record a podfic, code a webpage or journal layout, create a fanmix, play a song on your guitar and offer it as a mp3. ANYTHING you can think of that other people would donate for. But please note, that this is not an auction and we won´t interfere or control what you and the donor agree upon. You make the rules.
You can find out more about the project and the cause here.
You can sign up to creatively participate here.
You can donate directly, click here.
You are awesome. Always.
Near my school, there lies a humble thrift store. This thrift store has a LOT of REALLY CHEAP books. You can get paperbacks here for 25 cents. However, this cheepness comes at a cost: organization. Seriously, the layout is basically Children's Books, Foreign Language Books, and Everything Else In No Particular Order. During the past few weeks, I have taken to occasionally dropping in to search for some Jeeves, or ANY Wodehouse for that matter.
Today, I was bemoaning my inability (out loud to my friend Seren) to find any Wodehouse here because of the aforementioned disorganization.
About 10 seconds later, I found a first-printing copy of The Gun Seller.
How do you do that, Hugh?
ALSO, the other day I found a post here that linked to audio clips of Stephen Fry's introductions to the Masterpiece Theater airing of Jeeves and Wooster. Does anyone know where that is now? because I'm having trouble finding it.
And I will give you guise sum moar arts in about a week or so. A combination of replacing the Photoshop computer's hard-drive and our school's Senior Trip starting soon prevents me from doing so now. But I've been drawing a lotta Jooster.
Forgive me if this has been posted before, but it's quite a remarkable piece.
This is the ultimate justification for Hugh Laurie playing Bertie (besides the obvious fact that he is a straight-up genius)
