Ah, Dennis. Despite our Brexit differences, I like you more and more!

Is it strange that I have loved the humour of Roy 'Chubby' Brown an Kevin 'Bloody' Wilson, yet Mrs Brown's Boys leaves me cold? I can take earthy humour, even dirty humour but ....

Maybe I can blame my parents as they did take me to see Arthur Askey, Jimmy Clitheroe and Ted Ray on stage ( separate performances ) when I was very little ( maybe 5, 6 or 7 years old ). I don't remember the performances, maybe just a gossamers, and I doubt that I understood much of the acts but my mother said that I laughed a lot. So, who knows?

For those not of this island, they were comedians from the thirties, forties onwards, renowned for their very earthy humour. And yes, I knew the theory ( but not the mechanics of sex, self-discovery through interest ) from about 7 years old.

BTW Tom, I love your sense of humour too. Some of your contributions definitely come from an unexpected direction?

As for Brexit well, my feelings perhaps aren't as strong about it as sometimes I make out. If we'd voted to stay in then I would have moaned a bit but would have settled. After all, it's all at a level far above my plane of existence and not something I have any real influence over. I voted for what I thought was right at the time. I may have made a mistake, who knows, time will unfold as it will. I have a roof over us, so do my offspring, I am in employment, have sufficient resources behind me to more than last me, my marriage is strong and stable and I have a lot to be thankful for. So life is good. :D
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

The more I see of Michael McIntyre, the more I dislike him, just not funny. I must admit I never took to Chubby, although I haven't really tried. I have seen Kevin Bloody Wilson once or twice, songs ok, banter between songs excellent, great evening or evenings! Billy Connolly I have loved ever since I first heard him.
Back more on topic, kilts, hmmm. my good kilt is made from a heavier wool, it is also a 12 yard kilt. Swings nicely apparently but boy is it warm! and heavy! I don't often wear it, it tends to come out for the occasional party or pub-crawl and things like weddings. The rest of time it spends inside a kilt carrier breaking most things I try and hang it on! Wow the complete outfit is heavy!
I am the God of Hellfire! and I bring you truffles!
