THE GREAT TRANS-ATLANTIC HUMOUR BATTLE OF 2010!

Postby poohcarrot » Sat Dec 19, 2009 12:25 pm

STARTING JANUARY 4, 2010

There's a firestorm a-coming which most of you are probably not even aware of! :twisted:

The opening salvoes have already been fired and sides have been taken.

So far, representing the US of A are SW Reader & Jeffinboston. Representing the UK are WWD & myself.

The stakes couldn't be higher - the very meaning of humour (it is no co-incidence that we Brits spell it differently!) and the very soul of Discworld comprehension.

Which side will you be on?

Here is a simple test. If you think the following vids are absolutely hilarious, then the chances are you liked Pyramids (or will like Pyramids)

If you think they aren't hilarious, or you don't understand them, then the chances are you didn't (or won't) like Pyramids.

Tomkinson's Schooldays - Ripping Yarns (30 minutes - 4 vids)

The Holy Grail - bridge scene. (2mins 56 seconds)

Greece V Germany (3 mins 47 seconds)

Sjoerd

You are pre-empting my Pyramids case by mentioning Blackadder. :(

But I will forgive you, because I also think you must be on our side and that you liked Pyramids. :lol:

In fact, Sjoerd, I will use your Blackadder clip to bolster my argument because it's perfect! :twisted:
