I am not sure what's going on tonight. First everyone thinks Take Me Out is awful and now this. grin

The people send their clips in and get money on YBF don't they? So they think it's funny presumably?

I think it's funny.

Oh come on, who doesn't laugh at people crashing into trees and falling into paddling pools grin

I laugh at people hurting themselves, and I'm only slightly ashamed to admit it. Knowing the film makers get £250 makes it only slightly less funny.

I sometimes wince but mostly it is funny!

I hate the YBF clips of crashing children - makes my stomach lurch. I do however love clips of lunatic cats causing mayhem :-)

I think you can assume that no major injuries were incurred if the filmmakers are sending the video in to YBF.

It's hilarious though. I could listen to 2 year old DD chortling at dancing cats (and injured children) all night smile

Presumably, if any of the children were seriously hurt, the videos wouldn't get shown. I still don't find YBF funny, but doubt there are any lasting effects.

I think its horrible, YANBU

Oh I can't stand you've been framed. I really can't. We know people who have it on when we go round, I have to sit there wincing and make excuses to go and do the washing up or something.

It's vile - and how do people listen to that awful twat of a man who commentates? Does he think he is funny?

I don't find a lot of the clips funny on their own, but Harry Hill's commentary makes them hilarious!

I did wonder tonight if the people who sent in the two clips of ladies with their skirts tucked into the waistband, showing their arses, actually knew those ladies or if they had filmed strangers.

The commentating man is bloody awful, agreed

My ds (9) loves it. My dd (6) though will not watch it as she says its mean for us to laugh at people hurting themselves, clearly my 6 year old dd is a much nicer and honourable person than I am grin.

zombieplanmum Sat 13-Oct-12 21:27:03

what makes me sick is when it is clearly preventable and the fuckwits parents just let it happen i assume they are thinking kerching

Gunznroses Sat 13-Oct-12 21:29:12

A kid tripping over their own feet, getting entangled in the washing etc i can see the funny side of, but there are many that ive seen on ybf involvingvery small children that have been awful, just because theymay not have ended up in hospial or sustained injury does not make it "funny", but each one to their own.

I don't like the accidents on YBF. I like the funny kids and animals and that's about it. I don't get why people laugh at others hurting themselves. They must have a mean streak.

On the subject, have you noticed they'll give £250 to the most boring of clips? I videoed our dog biting snowballs last year maybe I'll send that in and see if I get a bit richer.

Gunznroses Sat 13-Oct-12 21:31:39

And the commentator is diabolical, the funniest thing about him is that he doesnt know funny at all.

SoleSource Sat 13-Oct-12 21:40:25

The wedding videos are tbe best for me.

Harry Hill is what makes it funny, remember in the past with Lisa Riley, ugh.

Someone I used to work with got very irate at the kids hurting themselves, but come on, if the parents sent in the tape it can't have been life changing or anything! I don't know why but anyone falling is funny, like it or not. Maybe don't take it so seriously?
