I have been away from the UK for quite a while now (30 years) and suddenly bumped into this series which is pretty unpolitically correct for some people here...

BUT... It's only humour and should be taken lightly...

Thoughts respected members?

FATHER TED :





Enjoy the humor... Tons of funny innuendos if you watch carefully...

A series popular on UK TV, but strictly speaking Republic of Ireland humour.
We would not want people accusing you of cultural appropriation.

You may like to catch up with this episode, which has Father Ted gallantly leading the escape bid of a party of priests trapped in the biggest lingerie department in Dublin.

Hehe... Luckily I am half Irish then... All cultural humour should be shared... The world would be a much better place in my opinion!

Thanks for the vid DIS...

When we still watched tv we LOVED the Father Ted series.Lol especially Dougal
It was an alltime fave along with "One foot in the Grave" which we thought was The best British series for a laugh.Along with Fawlty Towers in our opinion those three series were the holy trinity of British comedy.Monty Python was great too but i didn't to see all the episodes.

Anyway enjoy Father Ted,happy for you that you discovered it

If we're getting on to Hale and Pace, this one is a good test case for the way language differences affect humour; the climax depends on the English usage of "rubber" and "rubber Johnny", and Americans might be getting the joke in the wrong place.

There was one Hale and Pace show where they did a gangster sketch James Cagney style. The pun was on the badman size of their zoot pants and how far up their torsos the waistline of their pants came. It was hilarious. I can't find the sketch online.

I love all the old gangster movies. James Cagney was amazing and that sketch sent the whole thing up just beautifully. Incidentally, I wonder if the modern baggy pants are a throwback to the gangsters of old?
