We’ve got six Comedians lined up for a Reddit Talk/AMA series on r/CasualUK throughout December and January!
Alright, it’s bed time for some but why are you still up? No work tomorrow? Watching some questionable late night TV? Bit of stargazing?
The chinwag thread.
What is something popular now that annoys you?
I'm an American who recently tried McVitie's Penguins and digestives, and holy fuck I am now appalled at the lack of digestives and biscuits in the US. Which ones should I try next, and where's a good place to get British snacks?
These wankers posting this conspiracy nonsense through my letter box. What's the best note to return to sender with?
My Mrs went to the salon yesterday to get her eyebrows done - I assumed she meant tidied up / shaped or whatever, but she came back having had them 'laminated', whatever the hell that means. The result is she now looks sort of like The Hood off of Thunderbirds - these things are massive.
Now, far be it for me to think these things look ridiculous, I tried to politely enquire if this Groucho Marx tribute is the trend, and I am assured it is the done thing by today's beauty standards. I thought eyebrows were supposed to be small and dainty?
About two years ago, on an old username, I absolutely lambasted someone for suggesting that Branston Baked Beans were better than Heinz. I readily admitted even then that I had not tried them, but was so outraged at the idea that I took them to task.
This morning, I had promised my boys a fry up. Mornings are getting colder, and they’re both off to rugby training in an hour so I wanted something warm in their bellies.
Ran down to the corner shop.
I panicked. I bought the only tin they had: Branston.
Absolutely superb. Truly superb. There’s just something richer about them while retaining the same flavour profile.
I am a forty year old father of two. I was wrong. I am sorry.
It’s not much but I managed to put my Christmas tree up this morning. Last year I was struggling mentally and couldn’t bring myself to decorate at all. Feels like an accomplishment and loving the twinkly lights as the dark nights draw in.
Just made a full Sunday dinner, with chicken, stuffing, pigs in blankets, carrots, sprouts, peas, honey parsnips, yorkshires and roasties…
Son, 12, it’s not Christmas, why’ve you done this?’
