This must be some sort of odd British humor.

Very odd.

Good evening. Once again I am joined by Professor F J Lewis, overitus professor of history at All Souls' College,Oxford. I understand that some viewers felt that last week we rather skated over the topic of Great Britain 1931 -38, The Austerity years. I can only offer my apologies and pledge that Professor Lewis and myself shall make every endevour to fully explore tonight's topic of discussion, the 1905 Sebastopol Uprising. Professor Lewis, do you feel as many do, that Sebastopol was indeed the birthplace of the Russian Revolution?

You see girls running like this? That's you that is. That's how you run. See your bike? It's a girl's bike

I do not own a bicycle

You do, and it's a girl's one

Professor Lewis, if we may return to the subject in hand, I have here a copy of your book, origins of the Crimean War. Poo, ugh, poo, it smells of poo

That's because it's been inside your mum's bra

Well it would appear...

That's why it's so very smelly

It would appear that the Sebastopol question is one that will continue heated debate between historians. Professor Lewis, thankyou very much

Thankyou


See that..... that's you that is!

Ta,
Norris

Whisky was invented by the Chinese but perfected by the Scots. So, I'd replace whisky with a British beer and add toffee and "bangers and mash" in your list. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Well, I was winding my gf up the other day with some, 'That's you, that is' gags and remembered the Crimea thing and thought just how applicable it was...Lucky for me the partial transcript was on the web.

It must have been on the telly circa 1991?

I remember watching a show along the lines of "How Britain made the modern world" or something as appaullingly triumphant as that. In the concluding moments of the final show the presenter/historian (might've been Nial Ferguson, sounds like the sort of thing he'd be attached to), who was in a field in Burma watching kids playing soccer, said the only sure thing Britain could reasonably lay claim to contributing to the world at large was Association Football and the word 'f@ck'.

Not a bad contribution thought I, not bad at all. I was particularily impressed as he'd slipped 'f@ck' in before the 9 o'clock watershed.

Good lad.
