Well said!

I find that ex smokers consider themselves to be the most noble people on earth (besides Peter Gabriel).

So kids expressing their love for their parents by a staged endorsement of consumerism = tear-jerking loveliness
Kids expressing their love for their parents by a staged entreaty to stop killing themselves = blood-boiling irritation

:lol:


(actually I'm indifferent to both and there is an extent that I expect what is essentially public service stuff to be above trite emotional blackmail, while I'll tolerate/ignore it by companies)

Reading the comments on the BBC news webpages. I tell myself no, but can't help it! :?

Most annoying and ridiculously hopeless pundit ever. Even ITV and ESPN have had the sense not to employ him. He must have some right dirt on somebody at the BBC.

He's horrible. Just horrible. A self-important, smug twat. And why the hell does he feel the need to talk like that?! Like everything he says is so fucking profound!?

I quite like watching Garth interact with that other pundit (can't remember his name now) but you can see that there is some history between them and that they'd argue over anything and everything.

I think it's generally the case that every other pundit think's he's a pompous twat and his stupid opinions verge on the insane. It is funny watching Mark Bright, Robbie Savage/Martin Keown etc's faces as he's spewing out his latest 'wise words'.

I don't think I've ever used it. I've got gappy teeth anyway so I'd probably need rope.

I really don't understand how he still has a job. If they need somebody to talk complete and utter shit just to offer a contrasting opinion i'm sure they could find plenty who'd do it for a lot cheaper.

Can I just say how much better Final Score was yesterday. Dion Dublin and Mark Bright doing the punditry - two men who know football and can talk about it normally.

The voice of the woman on the self service tills.

"Alright you snooty cow I'm just smoothing out my £5 note...calm down"

One day I will poo in the bagging area just to hear her say "Unexpected item in the bagging area" over & over.
