some of the funniest people out there are on this site if u ask me. wud luv to see a sitcom based on the colonel, sword, irish warrior, roc, dogsgod and a few others here who all live in the same flat complex but dont know that their on line sparring partners live in the same building. the colonel lives in the basement and pisses everyone off by hanging his teabags out on the line for re-use and plays the korean national anthem full blast evry nite before he goes to bed. roc is actually a nice guy who fancies sword, dogs god is a big poodle and irish warrior is a little 90 year old lady who is always trying to jump on the colonels bones. and im the landlord from hell. now that bates brigid and eamon any day.
This is the thing- real life when you stand back is often very much more objectively hilarious than formal comedy. I have little doubt that roc_ wants to shag me senseless and I also have little doubt that he has convinced himself at least a part of himself that I want to round up any of slightly Jewish and slaughter them (I neither want to shag roc_ or have genocidal attentions against Jewry). I have a friend who was a pretty based Zionist Jewess (she has since converted-Buruch Hashem!- to a pretty extreme form of Eastern Christianity), who I had some objectively extremely funny episodes with the funniest being this-

Tel Aviv- the world's most homosexual city!

Excellent post a chara.
I don't want to blow my own trumpet but it does raise serious issues. Libtards believe they are talking "truth to power" when attacking more traditionally minded Gaels, particularly I feel when they are women, however who actually wields the sword to put it Biblically? Also Americanization if it goes further will mean the replacement of the historic Gaelic women who was both tough and kind, not with some pornographic fantasy but with the arrogant and sentimental American woman. I don't think things will go that far but if they do you learn that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. I'm not saying you don't but a lot of other people need to start thinking things through seriously.

They can feck off with their folky feel-good propaganda. It's a laugh sometimes to watch some of their output for the hiding behind the couch cringe. The Late Late Show Valentine's Day special is truly something else. The cream of the entertainment world could not script something that bad.
I imagine it'll be a whole lot of miscegenation?

Fr. Ted is a brutal thing in that it ridicules opposition to mass immigration for generations. Every time there's a mention of immigration it's all "SO YOURE A RACIST NOW, FATHER!", like you're really fucking witty quoting a sitcom which hasn't been on the air for 20 odd years. Real wit. But it actually feeds into people's souls, they have that Fr. Ted shite ingrained into them. That they will actually remember that Chinese episode and shut off listening to you when someone says that line.

I can imagine this very real scenario down the line, say an immigration focused nationalist party gets off its feet. They're on the Jewbox on one of those shite political panel shows. Someone in the audience yells "I hear you're a racist now, father". Everyone laughs. The true nationalist Gael there will be humiliated and will be made a show of. And RTE will plan it all..

The National Party had an article on this Fr. Tedmania last year. http://www.nationalparty.ie/hear-yo...-reflections-overexposure-certain-90s-sitcom/

Yes, in Ireland comedy is very much about ridiculing anyone who fails to "get with the program." Be they Catholic priests, Republicans, Nationalists, the Pro-Life Movement, anyone opposed to the Gaystapo - or just someone who enjoys a hurling match better than rugby.

Talk to your average girl from a working class or small farming background in the West of Ireland, she wont be little ms sophisticated but she will be naturally very polite if a bit shy, but there is also an inner toughness there as well as a real kindness which are totally interwoven in her soul- there is actual a lot of potential in these girls and women, if you can make an idea that maybe seem abstract and obscure in some way direct and concrete they can really absorb it.
I bet if you dumped a load of N!ggers in there they'd absorb them alright

ZZZ... I read that turgid sh1tepile a few months ago.
Cringe-worthy drivel sprang to mind; and a couple of harsher adjectives not suited for polite company.
If exaggerating the significance of a quirky 90s sitcom wasn't bad enough, the author makes a bigger clown of themselves by shoveling on heaps of flowery horse manure for good measure.

Is this the state of contrarian thinking in Ireland? Pseudo-intellectual w4nkery masquerading as social critique?
Pathetic.

It also serves to show how the NP will never be anything other than a fringe circle jerk for moving statue devotees.

I had some of my London Irish family visiting me in the 90's when Podge and Rodge was on RTE.
I thought P and R were funny enough, but the cockney roared out.
