Thread Name: BS: The weird year that was 2020
Subject: RE: BS: The weird year that was 2020
Benny Hill was a long time ago, Neil, and there are plenty of us to whom it never appealed. More recently we've delivered Fawlty Towers, Blackadder, Secret Policeman's Ball, Monty Python, The Office and Black Books (as well as plenty of turkeys). I wonder what you'd think of Sorry I Haven't A Clue. You gave us Airplane!, Blazing Saddles and those amazing Naked Gun films. We gave you Pink Panther. I loved Love And Marriage from your end. I don't think we should let ourselves get polarised about this. I would just say, however, that some of the "jokes" you yanks put in the joke threads have me scratching my head at times. The worst offender appears to be Donuel (with Mrrzy not far behind), who doesn't seem to know what a joke actually is, but I'm not going to judge all yanks on that. As for that extraneous "U," I'm sort of with you on that, but we can't stop using it as everyone here would just think we were odd if we did. Either we all drop it or no-one drops it...
