Re: I know nobody cares

Never managed to work it out. Only one game was I ever proud of and that was my gonig Celtic. I played for many years and could never figure out what I was doing wrong.

Re: Top 5 Comedians

Peter Kay isn't funny.

Bernard Manning is a racist/bigot/homophobe/sexist/**** etc

Re: Top 5 Comedians

I'm pretty sure that none of the comedians I listed are from Wales, yet I 'get' their comedy. The problem with Peter Kay is that he's just not that funny. Period.

Re: Top 5 Comedians

I didn't see 'kill' anywhere in his post. This is hardly the best defence of a comic I have ever seen. As a rule, those who advocate mass murder aren't funny.*

How do you feel about run of the mill mass murderers?
