The clever part was how the cake wanted to talk to the other guy, but it turned out there was really somebody at the other end, not just the scottish bloke being mental. hilarious.
really though as vulgar and low brow as little britain was, i think the jokes were solid a lot of the time. it was also ahead of it's time in terms of "meme humour", the way a lot of the sketches were the same basic joke every week but with a different twist.
I think a lot of contemporary criticism of the show comes from a place of snobby posh comedy afficionados, and the overlapping tendrils of politically correct oversensitiveness. it made jokes at the expense of everyone, the rich, the poor, disabled, gay, evangelist christian korean youtuber, business owners, benefit claimants, fat people, you name it. That's much more egalitarian than only "punching up" or whatever nonsense.
I'd have to say my personal favourite moment was margaret, margaret not having any arms or legs. after drawing the sketch out on the same premise for nearly two series, the timing was impeccable. even are stew would approve of that.
