Amusement

I have mentioned previously that I find Frankie Boyle tremendously amusing. Tonight's gem finished off Mock The Week and was a response to "something that would change the atmosphere at a dinner party."
"There is a vegetarian option: you can fuck off."

Although I also enjoyed Hugh Dennis's...
"Well, isn't this nice? I say, let's all raise a glass... TO ZE FUHRER!"

Well, I laughed...

"Well, isn't this nice? I say, let's all raise a glass... The Prime Minister!"

.... the sound of distant church bells and wind......

I liked his response to "something that you wouldn't hear in the Queen's speech".

I've had a few medical problems... I'm now so old, my pussy is haunted.

Are there any vegetarians left?...

Thought they starved themselves to death after the genetically modified crop debarcle...

Yep, the Queen's speech came out with some classic lines.

Andy Parsons is a scream.

I thought Russell Howard going on about elves was a waste of oxygen last week.

MTW appears a superior format than HIGNFY since the former has shallowed out and lost alot of its satirical edge.

I liked Hugh Dennis's adaptation of the Fireman Song from Trumpton on The Now Show Last Week:

"Jew, Jew, Muslim, Hindu, Traveller, Lesbian and Gay"

Brilliant.

At least the show is not afraid to take the piss of out Gordon Brown, many shows are still hesitant. I believe the first show to do so was Graham Norton's last year, I believe I blogged about it at the time.

I laughed so hard at that Frankie Boyle comment last night. Pure genius. Meat all the way!

Best Franky Boyle line was his response to "tag lines you wont see on films" (or something like that):

"No Mr. Bond; the only thing you'll be fighting in the coming years...is HIV".

I nearly fell off my chair.
