You know what really makes me laugh?


#546

Feel as though that should probably have ended with a mic drop.


#547

PREACH!


#548

Even sadder if I were the only one.

Also teenagers doing what equates to homework during Christmas, has to be a first. Their teachers would be astounded as they knocked back another glass of something.


#549

You sure seem to think lowly of us for somebody who works with teenagers.

I write things for fun, that must be a culture shock to you.


#550

Don’t feed the troll.


#551

Missed out on the New Year honours list. Again.


#552

I blame your OC


#553

So do I.


#554

Sometimes I wonder how these awards are chosen…

I do know some people who got them and deserved them too, well done to those who got them.


#555

Some like the Thai divers are well deserved. Others like “services to entertainment”… or worse still those who get them for simply turning up and doing their job once at a certain civil service grade.
That really nerks me off.

I don’t deserve one btw. Or at least not until another 10 years completed :thinking:

One of the officers in our wing showed us his great grandfather’s OBE. it was intriguing as the king was too unwell to present it, it was posted out with a letter and if I remember correctly it went something like

Given for services to the country in its desperate time of need, I thank you personally for the work you undertook on our behalf

George

All hand written, it was never spoken in the family about All they knew was he joined the forces in the 1st world war and then retired from the air ministry.


#557

To be honest, I have more respect for the civil service recipients than I do people who got one for “services to dance”.


#558

What makes me laugh - not Christmas Cracker jokes…


#559

If they are just getting for doing an office job, do they deserve it … no. Do they deserve it in the armed forces for doing their day job and or getting promoted … no. What makes them more deserving than the millions like us who get up and do a day’s work?

As much as I’m no fan of the sports and music ones etc, at least they have been doing it for years from childhood and had to keep doing it, many of them while doing a day job as well.

No more Film **** on the BBC, for no other reason than being one less thing for Winkleman to be doing. She really is a talentless money pit.
I quite liked Barry Norman, as if he said a film wasn’t very good, you could lay money on the fact you’d like it.


#561

She hasn’t presented it since 2016…?


#562

She was on it the last time I watched it and assumed as for some reason known only to the almighty the BBC seem to like her, she was still on it.
Winkleman is in the same league as Zoe Ball, who will mean it’s R4 until 9.30 when Ken Bruce comes on R2. At least Evans is a broadcaster and not someone who has got a job because of the fame of a parent.


#563

Making me laugh? I’ve clearly been reading the “Wing Chairs” thread too much as I’m now being bombarded with adverts for these…
