Not really a grump, more a comment . . .

Saw this the other day and thought it worth sharing, the difference between 1503 and 2021 :?

This is the favourite word of TV competition shows, whether you're baking a flan, sewing a frock, doing some gardening or dancing . . . usually said with lots of exaggerated and uncalled for emotion :cry:

Re: Tedious modern overused words and expressions

I thought this might make an interesting thread . . . OK, right at the very top of my list is "amazing" this seems to have replaced "awesome". Currently everything seems to f*cking "amazing", this is often prefixed with "Oh my god" or even the worse "OMG...

Re: A group of people do something then one is sent home...

We really need Roger Mellie (the man on the Telly, from Viz) to sort out programming. Roger was the brains behind such shows as "Marbles up the Arse" and "Celebrity shit bucket" (where I recall celebs were required to defecate into a bucket from a step ladder - both would work w...

Re: A group of people do something then one is sent home...

It's not necessarily the subject matter but it's the way everything has to be fitted into this tired old competition format that really grinds my gears. With little videos of the contestants sharing how life changing it's all been and getting all emotional, whether they've just baked a cake, sewn a ...

A group of people do something then one is sent home...

The other half is obsessed with this type of reality TV competition programme. I try to keep out of the way when they are on but it's getting harder as this overused idea is rolled out over and over again and seems to occupy more and more TV schedule time. Maybe they are easy and cheap to make?, may...

Re: Banksy

This thread from the dead is worth a read, especially as it reveals Dips to be a fan. The Bristol stencil-monger has been at it again, this time damaging public property in the form of a tube train. Personally I think that his work is bolleaux and that he should be prosecuted, but he's Banksy, so o...

Re: Marks and Spencer

M&S have trouser leg lengths of 29" and 31 " , so those of us with 30" needs are rarely happy. I have not owned a M&S pair of trousers or suit for 25+ years. The shirts are poor quality and only the shreddies are good enough. Hate the place, and only buy food from them. Now I...

Re: Am I missing something here?

Shallow simpletons go on these reality shows, in the hope of becoming famous. Please do not blame everyone else when the dream goes tits up. You went on the show, you failed, now get over it, dozy twats. Labour want Mc Donalds to stop their Monopoly game because it causes obesity. No, it does not, ...

Am I missing something here?

I’ve recently been reading about another Love Island star who has been found dead, suicide I believe. Whether this is related to his experiences on the TV show we don’t know for certain, however in the same article they are reporting on the fact that the other “contestants” (is that the correct term...

Re: Dead footballer

Maybe as somebody who has no interest in football I shouldn’t be commenting on this, but I will. When this first hit the headlines I had never heard of this footballer, that perhaps is not surprising as I would struggle to name more than a couple of people connected to football, I just tend to switc...

Re: Jayden Moodie - Saint or sinner?

Riding around illegally on a moped and apparently according the BBC report had a knife taken off him only a few weeks ago it does give some sort of hint as to the type of people he was mixing with. While we are all horrified at the murder of a fourteen year old, sadly I can't honestly say it "b...
