I don't know - I find these Klingon books a little high brow.

Excuse the double post, but I missed this.  Bravo, sir.

I sent a PM but just in case - my lazy arse will take the 22nd, if it may, and thanks, Sheridan, for this!  I love the advent calendar and missed it last year.

The squidfalls have started!

 Inaba is fine, but I love Droid Life and hope it lasts forever.

As an aside, I had never heard of the Mesozoic period when I first read this, and as such still automatically pronounce it 'metal-zoyk' in my head.

Kipling was fine, but Metalzoic storms it for me here.  Pat could do no wrong in those days.

If "Trollocks" isn't adopted soon as a swear word, then I don't know what has gone wrong with the world.  :D

It very much was among my mates when I was a kid.

I think cattle be all for now.

Pussyfoot 5.  It wasn't great, but A Life Less Ordinary was very ordinary.

Tribal Memories without a shadow of a doubt.  It was brilliant.

Tell me about it! We're not even allowed to ... love Jeremy Clarkson!

You can be arrested and thrown in jail for it.

Blair almost received a protest vote (*choke*) until I discovered that Judge Hershey doesn't include the current resurrected-4-revenge nonsense.

Glad I'm not alone in my disdain for the idea of resurrecting Hershey after her brilliant death scene.  For the love of Danu, Tharg, will you let Colin McNeil kill someone.

One universal truth remains that 'punch down' comedy comes from a positions of deep seated self loathing.

I wouldn't say that's a "universal truth". It's true for you, no doubt, but making broad generalizations like that, based on personal anecdotal experiences, never ends well.

Sometimes it comes from a lack of empathy, other times it's a lack of understanding.

And sometimes, people punch down because, deep down, they're just dicks*.

*based on personal anecdotal experiences

As a straight white middle-class man, I find it impossible to punch down as we are the most oppressed group on the planet these days. [/sarcasm]

Hershey's solo stuff never quite landed for me either - no matter who wrote it, it never really felt substantial.

The Tony Blair one was as subtle as a TAD missile but kind of fun. BLAIR 1 for me.


The most one-sided contest ever?

I'm guessing things are going a bit 2016 US election for you right now, Bish-OP.   ;)

Compelling arguments, carefully and kindly put must sway me. It seems like I strayed over the line - which is something I often recognize in Gervais's comedy.

My apologies again for any offence caused, and a promise to be more careful in the future.

Speaking personally I wasn't remotely offended, but then I suppose I'm not really in a position to give an opinion.   Didn't mean to compare you to Gervais.

My taste in comedy is very often the darkest of dark, like Chris Morris at his most twisted.
