First odd thing was getting a mannequin dressed up as an old lady and smashing her to pieces.

What was the joke there?

Second odd thing was seemingly being totally uninterested in the stunt driver they were getting to do something really dangerous, and by the look of the film when the caravan came through the window, and they just said oh he's shit he didn't do it. Was he OK though? Was my first thought anyway.

Now, while i think JC is a tit, and the whole thing a bit contrived, I generally think it's quite funny...

But I didn't get these 2 things.

Were they just being complete and utter twats? DH didn't "get" those bits either..

Yes, he's the king of twatism, but I'm oddly drawn to himblush

Old woman drivers supposed to be awful and a danger to other road users. The smashing of said manaqiun is a vent / attempt to irraditcat from road.
But i am guessing here as i have been watching the poisioning of bees.

Cant help with the stunt thing though.

Oh god you're not in the "I'd do jezza" crew are you?

I was horrified by the number of people who would on a thread the other week...

What was the point/joke of the dismembering the granny thing? I just thought it was nasty.

Oh thanks ninja that makes sense. Maybe.

Guessing you're not in the jezzaloving camp!

sorry, quick highjack. Lovelytin, saw your name and read it as LovelyTinofSperm!!! Immediate thought was eughh, realised it actually read Spam but still thought eughh although the eww factor wasn't quite so high grin Sorry, as you were

ROFL @ tinofsperm!

NinjaRain Sun 30-Aug-09 21:21:30

grin tinofsperm.

Actually really enjoyed the first 150 pages of one of his books. Then is got boring. I can take or leave it depends on my mood. The bees was more intersting as i would like to keep them at some point.

I have read the one with the fox on hmm

DH thinks he's funny. I think he's a twat but usually get the joke.

But this was just weird.

I like him when he was on IQ talking about shooting foxes when drunk. He was actually very funny on that occasion.

LovelyTinOfSpam Sun 30-Aug-09 21:33:34

He can be v funny.

But then he does really horrible things.

Like dismembering representations of grannies or laughing at women getting murdered.

Then I remember that I am not part of his target audience.

I had a VERY rude dream involving JC

Can't look him in the eye now

LovelyTinOfSpam Sun 30-Aug-09 21:42:42

OH GOD how can this have turned into a JC fantasy thread???

JennyWasAFriendOfMine Sun 30-Aug-09 21:44:04

I have no latent attraction to JC

but OH MY he had some moves

LovelyTinOfSpam Sun 30-Aug-09 21:52:34

JennyWasAFriendOfMine Sun 30-Aug-09 22:02:59
