From this interview (http://blogs.amctv.com/movie-news/2009/10/billy-connolly-interview.php#at) with Billy Connolly:

Q: If you don't like doing comedies, what about being paired against another comedian - such as Jim Carrey in Lemony Snicket or Jack Black in Gulliver's Travels?

A: There's a brotherhood among comedians, and we're drawn to each other. We try to make each other laugh -- not at the other's expense, but we just want to entertain the other. Jack, what a delightful man. He played ukulele on set, and then I said, "I'll bring mine." Then Emily Blunt got one, learned a few chords and she's dedicated to it now. We did a lot of jolly songs on the ukulele together. It was just dandy.

Yeah, the uke's just for nerds....right! :)

I never comment on pictures of girls on forums in case my wife reads it! :eek:

I especially never commented on this pic posted by Ahnko

Nope. Never said a word about that one.

Not a single word.

No, sir.

If my wife is reading this I never actually noticed either of those pictures.

I wonder if he picked it up when they were making Shallow Hal, there's a scene with a uke near the end.

Not to be a perv, but who is the 2nd young lady?

In keeping with the spirit of the post and in appreciation of the photos:
1. Who is Billy Connelly?
2. Who is Jack Black?
3. We have ESTABLISHED who Emily Blunt is.

The only one of those three I know is Jack Black. (not personally of course)

He is a comedian/songwriter/musician that just so happens to be a member of mensa. You can hear his music from his band "Tenacious D"

Thanks. I actually know who both the guys are, they were both rendered unimportant once certain photos were posted.

Ah. I don't guess I ever scrolled down that far on the photo. I'm going to hell, aren't I?
