A Little Light Relief for These Testing Times.


Recommended Posts

I Believe we're all doing our best to be responsible during this period of self isolation & self distancing and are concerned about our friends, families and fellow forum members in neighbouring countries and counties.

The media coverage is at saturation point, whether we want to or not and for even the shortest period, it's difficult to self distance or self isolate from the steadily growing numbers of those being infected or worse.

For a little diversion I thought a thread allowing us all to participate with funny tales or links to some classic comedy sketches would bring a smile.

I've started with this from the superb Pam Ayers as many of you may just...and not in a small way either... think she's talking about yours truly when I begin to act like a dog with bone! (telling me to shut up is allowed!)

Enjoy!

 

I don't know if there is any copyright infringement but they seem to be available on Youtube so hopefully not.

I just went through my favourite Kevin Bridges,Billy Connolly, Jerry Sadowitz and Dennis Leary sets and none are suitable here almost posted the “Chewin the fat back stairs lavvy song” but it was a bit risky so settled for one from that I found funny and true from someone I’ve never really liked before.

Elderly ladies in my block, one in her 90s, says the gauntlet of words except the F and C word.  Her language is peppered with bl**dy everything.  Hard to keep a straight face.  One beneath me used to yell P off at students sitting on the wall outside..🤣

There is something hugely endearing about that kind of language from the people you would, stereotypically, least expect it from.

It’s the only place it can be used as a term of endearment, astonishment, disgust and aggression.

The last time I heard a Scotsman swear was while site visiting a Save the Children project at Possilpark - a group decided they didn't like our electricians van and threw bricks at it whilst expressing their dislike of English electrical engineers!  I don't think it was endearment they intended.  Horrible people - not like  #neilcvx I am sure!

Dropping one's lunch... breaking wind

If someone was to be cutting your lunch... it might be grounds for divorce...
