I really hate this old-school British comedy. What a pile of shit it all is.
You ain't 'alf got a weirdly saggy pair of tits!"
who find themselves permanently nuts deep in nubile 20 something flange?
It's an aspirational programme as much as anything.
I love the classics.
I just hate this end-of-the-pier shit. The jokes were tired 5 minutes after they were written.
and all you had to do to be a comedy God was say:
"The country's in the toilet. Thanks, Maggie!"
So it's a rock and a hard place kinda deal.
If you excavate for long enough, their is some funny bones beneath Elton's hyperdrive speech and constant thumbing.
But why does he always tilt his head backwards? Is it to hide the horn on the back of his kneck?
If you add the feet thread this is the second time I've agreed with you, it's not looking good.
Yessir, in time.
Some of the Carry Ons are pretty awful (and have lame reactionary humour behind the smut) but the 'historical' ones are actually often quite funny
