'Woke' parodies
« on: March 01, 2019, 12:33:54 PM »
There are several of them on Twitter - JarvisDupont, TitaniaMcGrath (who unbelievably has a book deal), Godfrey Elphwick. All of them complete dogshit lazy hackery (though predictably the Spectator likes them: https://www.spectator.co.uk/2019/02/the-genius-of-titania-mcgrath/) and not nearly as amusing as the descent into full Britain First of Lee Hurst and, to a lesser extent, Andrew Lawrence.

Just wanted to express how unutterably tedious I find them all. You can join in if you like.

She tweets every day. On Monday: ‘Dear Hollywood, please reshoot every scene that Liam Neeson has ever acted in and replace him with Christopher Plummer. Do this NOW’ and, ‘If you don’t think exactly the same way as me, you have clearly got a lot to learn about diversity.’ Last week: ‘It’s a broken kind of democracy which allows a majority of voters to impose their wishes on the rest of us.’ She is a genius.

Nope.

Nope.

The word 'genius' really just needs to be put in a bin these days, it's pretty much worthless.

Nope.

It's the self-congratulatory tone of all of this that makes me seeeeeeeeethe.

Someone on here linked to a Titania McGrath tweet a few months ago, and reading through previous tweets I convinced myself Rod Liddle was behind it. Still think so.

I believe the same woman is behind Elfwick and McGrath. Some nice one-liners occasionally but all a bit predictable.

It suffers from the same thing the anti-'woke' parodies suffer from which is that the point seems to come first and the laugh second. It gets boring very quickly.

I *think* it was the person who was BiscuitAhoy (Bob Mortimer-endorsed badgers wibble fuckpuffin whimsy), disappeared, and came back with a new somewhat reactionary persona.

This is her these days: https://twitter.com/godblesstoto  She had some weird meltdown over another Twitter comedy person, TechnicallyRon, going on about him apparently not getting his account deleted because he was a Liberal Elite or something, and it took me a while to realise she was actually BiscuitAhoy as her other tweets were ranting about the license fee and SJWs or whatever.

Funny you mention the license fee. I had a few youtube suggestions recently: How to avoid paying the TV license and such. I was very tired, so thought I'd take a little wander down that road as a way to put my brain into low power mode before a kip. Surprising insight into how many people equate the TV license with the destruction of society and how clearly we're all headed for Sharia Law and the death of our children at the hands of the Paedo Beeb. It was a journey.

I follow TitaniaMcGrath and "she" (I always assumed it was a collection of Spiked writers behind the account) isn't exactly producing highly original content, but it's interesting to see both sides of the spectrum reacting to her tweets. She seems to troll both "SJWs" and "Gammon" types but it's usually the latter who get carried away and totally miss that she's clearly a parody.

I had no idea it was unfunny Tweeter BiscuitAhoy behind the account.

Also, I only found out recently that once funny user hrtbps turned out to be a wrong 'un.

Lots of people seem to like them but they're terrible really. Simon Hedges is good if you want a great parody account

Getting popular on Twitter is one of the worst things that can happen to you. That’s what I tell myself every time I look at my meagre 48 followers.

Yeah I didn't think it was that funny, but I did find it amusing it was winding up humourless people that take themselves a bit too seriously. Which is something I think needs to be done even if I agree with them politically.

I am quite surprised to find it's biscuitahoy just because her tweets have been creatively bankrupt long before she went a bit reactionary.

Blimey, didn't realise it was that bad, thought it was stalky stuff bordering on harassment.
