:eek: I'm shocked Funk500. The previous sketch is an embarrassment to the entire institution of British comedy. You should be ashamed. :oops:

The following is more in line with the good old-fashioned fun I enjoy.



"Sell crazy someplace else. We're all stocked up here." (Melvin Udall)

"Man will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest." (Denis Diderot)

"I believe there's nothing we can know except that we should be kind to each other and do what we can for people." (Katharine Hepburn)

I spent the night watching Little Britain Episodes on Youtube :loco: I am in love with Daffyd, what I like about him is how he represents so many phobias. People who keep pulling the racist card are exactly like that too, ditto with fat people :thumbsup: Threadkiller, time to get a new handle err I mean you know you aren't ending things that quickly these days, I mean you know about ummmm threads and all. :lol:

I think my favorite character on Little Britain is Marjorie in the Fat Fighters' segments - a truly despicable creation.



As to my not being able to live up to my handle, divea, I hold everybody who responds to my posts at fault. I keep trying to have the last word and people continuously reply, thereby messing with my reputation. Is this being done out of envy? :ponder:

It's such a pleasure living in a world where everyone is in such a hurry to be outraged over someone else’s trivial comments
