Viz had a few complaints about their take on gypsies......


I assure you, their take on gypsies is nothing compared to mine........

Man I hated the whole 80's nightclub thing but also loved it.
Hard to explain to those who didn't experience it.

Rooftop Gardens in Wakefield, had a few laughs there.

A personal favourite was Tiffany's in Newcastle - could tell many a tale but T&C.....and common decency dictate otherwise!

Viz; a national treasure and should be made compulsory reading in the National Curriculum - that'd shake things up a bit!
And whilst I'm on about improvements to the joke that is the National Curriculum.....how about The Macc Lads becoming a section in the Music syllabus?
(I think they were mentioned somewhere earlier in this thread?)



Quite a few mates were at Rebellion over the weekend, all agreed The Macc Lads were great.

LMAO!


EDIT
And Macc lads, yes

Got to admit that my personal favourites Real Ale Twats and Big Vern.

Haha yes, Buster Gonad was funny as well, to be fair the whole comic was funny as #!
My mam just thought I was laughing at a comic, don't think she knew what viz was all about when I was a kid lol
Imagine if it was published again, there'd be riots from so many different offended groups.

I'm sure its still knocking about it some format, I doubt it's still as funny though.

I think it should be re-launched / re-branded or whatever with a special limited edition Sex Pistols flexi-disk with Bodies on the A Side and Friggin in the Riggin on the flip side!

Loved the Real Ale Twats and big Vern and the Pathetic Sharks too. All of it really, especially Top Tips and the Letters.

Top Tips! Just being re reading some for old times sake......couldn't get away with most now.......

I do like:

Employers: Avoid hiring unlucky people by immediately tossing half the cv's into the bin!

Town Councils: Reduce litter by issuing blind folk with pointy sticks.......

Haha! I'd forgotten the'top tips'

I bet they would 'trigger' some folk to death these days lol
Good old British humour, I wonder how long I would last standing outside a left wing university in the US handing out copies to students? Long enough to be lynched maybe, then sent to a 're-education' camp or something!

I came across this list - Finbarr Saunders at his best - of Viz comic strips.

en.wikipedia.org...

Had a proper chuckle going through it, many I'd forgot.

Hats off to the witty burglars who stole my entire CD collection with
the exception of "There is Nothing Left to Lose" by the Foo Fighters. I
hope that when sentencing, the judge takes into account their splendid
sense of humour.


Absolute classic.

Some belters in there.

Wonder what our cousins across the water would make of it all?

Good question. Any Yanks on here care to comment? Probably all too busy arguing about Trump, though.

I guess it would depend on how far on each side of the political divide folk are.
Haven't had many US members pop into the banter cafe, It's open to all though. We should have an Americana night with redneck and hillbilly banter as the theme.

I got a chuckle from the Best Viz letters, although I'm Canadian and couldn't care less about the orange one.

We could have some sh#t kicking music on too. Yeee-Hah!

I'll bring the J.D.
Maybe offer a few suggestions for the jukebox.

Not sure about the hillbilly banter, really do struggle to understand them.
No problem at all with the broadest Glaswegian - I do sometimes struggle with those just up the road from me that speak Pitmatic.....then again, they are pretty similar to hillbilly's in most respects - but that Cajan stuff baffles me, and Deliverance always springs to mind!
