I laughed so hard I had abit of a wee incident.

I recognise it is puerile but then again My humour level is the Inbetweeners...........enough said.

Sooo anyone else tickled by this?

orf to YouTube some more

Is that when people pretend to trip while holding laarge containers of juice/milk/whatever?

I think it's quite funny but prefer a good kenneth williams oooh matron type puerile double entendre for the childish side of my humour. Obviously my normal humour is dry and sophisticated wink

I thought it was pretty disgusting, rude, disrespectful and dangerous, which pretty outweights any modicum of humour for me

GrowSomeCress Fri 05-Apr-13 18:54:50

Just realised how incredibly grumpy that sounded grin

I hate it. If it's the same one I saw, milk and juice ran under the shelving units, under chiller cabinets and splashed people's clothing.

I bet the 'smashers' never bothered to pay to get everything cleaned up. angry

It's the outrageous slapstick nature of it that gets me.

that and all the throughly outraged responses from the Daily Fail commenters

MissSG Fri 05-Apr-13 18:56:18

I think it's hilarious grin

I'm grumpy too then. Cos our prices are getting silly. Basic milk went up five eurocents one week and another 5 the next.

Don't want more price rises to subsidise some berks youtube based 15 minutes of fame.

And yes I know it's a drop in the ocean, it's just a very tanglible example of the unnecessary waste that helps inch prices higher than they could be.

And I am grumpy.

Grumpy and old.

Possibly about to sprout a tight perm, cat's bum mouth and crimpoline dress.

yr 9s thought that it was hilarious for about 20 minutes.

funny to watch on you tube , but not funny if done near me and got me splashed smile.

WeeBoobs Fri 05-Apr-13 19:04:26

I feel sorry for all the genuinely nice people who rush to try and help the guy, all worried that he's hurt. It'd serve him right if he broke his arm/leg/back.

Yes, I'm grumpy.

Not normally a party pooper, but 'fraid this really gets to me.

It's like all those competitions based on gluttony (who can eat the most hot dogs the quickest etc).

In a world (even country, I dare say) where people literally die from hunger, I cannot understand how people can find this funny.

It's so utterly, completely, disrespectful and distasteful.

Sorry, but this is AIBU.

Iactuallydothinkso Fri 05-Apr-13 19:25:47

Nope I don't get it. Don't find it funny. Just disrespectful and wasteful. It actually annoyed me especially when one of the shop keepers said Oh no not again, it's the second time today.


And not in a good way.

Distasteful and disrespectful. Not funny.

Another grump here. Never heard of it so Youtubed it.

Pathetic, wasteful and typical of Western Excess. The culprits would be much improved by having to walk six miles a day in scorching heat to collect their milk.

Bah humbug.

I'm afraid I'm in the Po Brigade too. I love a bit of slapstick (give me a video of some old dear toppling into a bush anyday) but anything where food is wasted really fucking annoys me.

I even get twitchy on cookery shows - I sit there thinking 'I hope the production crew get to eat that and it doesn't go straight in the bin!' angry

Plus, I feel sorry for the poor sod who has to clean up after the fuckwits have had their hilarity.

CartedOff Fri 05-Apr-13 19:41:39

I feel a bit irritated on behalf of all those people trying to help and going out of their way to try and take care of someone who is just playing a prank.

complexnumber Fri 05-Apr-13 19:42:35

Do not find it remotely funny.

Btw, how old are you OP?

Fairylea Fri 05-Apr-13 19:50:37

I agree with detoxlatte.

mrscumberbatch Fri 05-Apr-13 19:52:08

I don't find it funny either. It's a bit sad and attention seeking.

practicality Fri 05-Apr-13 20:42:04

All those going on about food much do you chuck out of your fridge at the end of the week?

I understand the feelings around food waste. I suppose a lot of you are vegan in accordance with maximising yields to feed everyone?

I watched the group of them and for some reason it seemed funnier than the isolated ones on YouTube.

I think the people starving in the world response is a bit sanctimonious if I am honest in response to a few cartons of milk hitting the deck. Anyway what I found funny was the idea that someone dreamed this up and how outrageous it was that they actually did it. It's a sort of cringe mixed with slapstick.

Ah well it is a welcome distraction from the Korean situation.... smile

I find it absolutely hilarious. My stomach actually hurts from laughing after watching a compilation. It makes me want to be a teenage boy, and as a rule I loathe teenage boys.

Just my humour. But then I'm a dick-head who thought planking was really funny. A twat really.

dayshiftdoris Fri 05-Apr-13 22:24:42

Oh yeah - hilarious hmm

Especially when the people rushing to help nearly fall or the prankster pretends to be unable to get up nearly pulling their helper down too.

Pathetic and I am someone who laughed at her own child tripping up a step yesterday
