Re: Why Brits are better than Yanks

Re: Why Brits are better than Yanks

We know that people are being made homeless by rent rises and bedroom tax, but no one can be bothered t...

Possibly. I haven't taken the test yet. I have no idea who you are; I think Admins have to suppress their real character.

Re: It would appear that Roy is now an Admin.

What Roy failed to say is that I am now him. I have taken over his personality, character, and charm. So if you need modding and need to contact Roy the Mod's Ghost in the Machine, just substitute the new label.

Re: Why Brits are better than Yanks

I like all those female comics mentioned.

I think you missed Fawlty Towers which must just be the funniest ever, except maybe Life of Brian.
