Greetings one and each - i'm a newbie from London so a big hello to you all. I have a quote that i'd like to contribute. don't know who said it and it might even have been me....especially if no one else claims it ;o)

"Opinions are like arseholes - everyone's got one."

And maintaining that theme, would it be inelegantly anal of me to point out the unusual use of language contained in paragraph 3 of the homepage?

It goes without saying that i'm a huge admirer of the frymeister - including the oft unmentioned role of Piers Lonsdale in the (just for the hatrick of bum references) buttock gropingly funny New Statesman.

Hey newbie!! Welcome! I'd like to elaborate on your theme with a gem from Dolly Parton:

"He was about as useful as a one-legged man in a butt-kicking competition."

My other Dolly favourites are: "It takes a lot of money to look this cheap" and also something along the lines of: "I'm not a dumb blonde -- I'm not dumb. I'm not blonde, either."

Dolly rocks!

I also once heard one of my fellow Australians claim that someone "was about as popular as poo in a hat."

Have a pleasant day...

Thanks for the welcome melampus.

Dolly - love that dry southern wit. Maintaining that american theme - Groucho Marx always has me rolling in the aisles...they hate me in ASDA!

"Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others. "

"Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies. "

and my all time fave...

"I worked my way up from nothing to a state of extreme poverty." What i like about this one is the way it applies to me lolol

I once heard somebody comment (quite cruelly infact) on a particularly ugly woman....

"she got a face like she's been bobbing for apples in a chip pan"

(wonder if our american friends will get that one X-D

Brass Eye! Everyone watch it. It's possibly the most hilarious thing in the world, ever. Whatever you're thinking is probably better, you're wrong.

i have to disagree - brass eye was funny and clever but the best thing this decade has to be green wing. Second would be The Thick Of It. Was Brass Eye this decade...if only i had the internet - i could check

Sue White about Dr Alan Statham - "Happy, he's not happy - he's borderline schizophrenic with a predilection for selfharm and a jackhammer stammer."

i'm officially loved - in your face match.com!

As for the people that missed The Thick of it - i envy them in a way. Stop it you fools. These are good biscuits and they cost four pounds!

I read Lord Armando talking about making a feature length film of the thing - i think the concept is to show what happens in the build up to a war. So long as there are lots of scottish people creatively swearing in it, i'll be well chuffed!

Chris morris is unfairly talented - shame all the only fairly talented squits in charge lack the balls to let him make more cutting edge satire, i thought the brass eye special controversy was a brilliant take on modern day ignorance and irrationality - they even showed it again as part of c4 @ 25 just last week and it was just as provocative.
