But... my nostrils were clear.
It's after getting annoying. Fair play though, I'm sure this is why it is being used.
if that was a real guy you'd want to punch his lights out
think that was too annoying to be funny really. Even the line about the flights
Does alan partridge say 'cheers?'
making light of mass death and historical crimes, etc.
as i said in those threads, i only posted them as i don't care what people think online and it's stuff i've never said/would never say.
that video is annoying in that he is making lightof death/etc,it's being rude rather than ignorant. in the script even the line from the irish character where he says flights are 49 pounds- he wouldn't say that or be like that as most people i've met have only been to the uk once or twice and some never, so even the line from the non-ignorant character is stupid.
Don't see how you could take it seriously, especially seeing as you are far removed from the context of the jokes.
thats what an english person is like re: ireland
in that i am part irish and live here
I am confused here, are you offended on behalf of the Irish people?
who isn't an idiot maybe? i mean laughing about death is never funny but i just found it an irritating clip.
I haven't seen the episode, only a clip of it anyhow. I just wanted context to that phrase.
In certain contexts, laughing about death most certainly /is/ funny.
Not that that's the crux of the matter.
Such a moron.
being just like morrissey.
he's got an english heart (ie: he supports england). pretty pertinent
5 times in to steer clear of any thread that says 'ireland' in it lest the 4 irish people on the boards get on my back about it. Never mind nobody has said a word, and neither from me in 7 months being here (ie you are all full of shit)
But I still find loss of stuff you say about it to be slightly cringeworthy in a way that I hope that I've avoided doing the equivalent of, as an English guy in Scotland. Meh. Maybe it's just one of those things that gets lost in translation via the intertrons.
and also people percieving something how they expect the person to be, rather than what they do. I always say things online I don't say in person, (and am surprised when i meet people and they say the same things in person) so assuming most people say the same in person it's reasonable to conclude, if i was saying what i do here, that I'm an idiot.
However i do have social decorum and sensitivity and am attuned to what's going on, so I don't.
I really hate getting into embarrassing debates on here on what i should and shouldn't be doing when everything i do on here i DON'T do anywhere else- it's an anonymous online platform. The reason to use it is to do what you wouldn't elsewhere. It would be pointless to act and say the same. It's like a semi-confessional bloggng site with a music theme.
For example, chris is cool did not text all his friends 'i just had sex' in 2008 or when that thread was made.
it's fine to do as you would in person as well if you just enjoy chatting on here, but personally and for other people i guess too it's an outlet for thoughts or questions you or they wouldn't say out loud. Everyone uses things in a different way.
and he doesn't say any of the stuff he does on here. Again it's a case of people assuming the person says the same and judging them as if they do...I like to give people the benefit of the doubt
that i thought of afterwards- saying stuff i wouldn't say out loud is the only draw for this site for me. If i was to behave like the lovely polite girl I am it would be utterly boring and pointless for me and I wouldn't bother using it. So maybe I should try and do that and bore myself off the site.
ok this is now the 'what i'd say in real life' sexy_girl and in which case i give you:
*smiles and shrugs*
but you're kicking off over an ALAN PARTRIDGE quote. it doesn't even need explaining any more
Lord of the Rings, Lord of the Dance or Lord of the Flies.
only listend to that line and closed it
Properly policed. It must not, repeat not, turn into an all-night rave.
Quite literally, I'm on the ring road .
Aqua. Which is French for water. It's like being inside an enormous Fox's Glacier Mint. Which, again, to me is a bonus
Let it go Lynn, you 're never going to meet him.
Frederick e-mails to say he has 4 children, he is the proud father of a new baby boy, Joshua, and his daughter Susan, 5, has just started school and he thinks that after death there is nothing.
It's Annie Lennox.
Use a sausage as a breakwater
