NOT The land of the risen Son!!
#1
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)

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. :laugh:

So where do I stand then? I love Monty Python & Blackadder, & I think Pyramids is much funnier than Night Watch. I just think that NW is a better book o_O

Am I American then?

PS am also brilliant at Guildty :p

Oh, I just LOVE Blackadder!

Sodoff Baldrick :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
:laugh: I just love it when they are filling in the application form :laugh:

Blackadder: Right. Now all we have to do is fill in this MP application form. Name: Baldrick. First name...?
Baldrick: Er, I'm not sure.
Blackadder: Well, you must have some idea...
Baldrick: Well, it might be Sod off.
Blackadder: What?
Baldrick: Well, when I used to play in the gutter, I used to say to the other snipes, "Hello, my name's Baldrick," and they'd say, "Yes, we know. Sod off, Baldrick." :laugh:
