How childish are you?
« on: November 04, 2019, 02:10:11 PM »
Last night I had a few glasses of wine and ended up watching an episode of The Sooty Show and laughing my head off every time Sweep appeared.

Today at werk we're having some kind of mental health/wellbeing awareness day where staff could pick up a free plant for their desks. I just had to choose a cactus and go for the one that looked the most phallic, didn't I?

38 I was... There is no hope...

It's good to have a few childish chuckles here and there. I fucking hate people who think you have to entirely dispense with all mirth once you reach a mystically nebulous age.

I believe most humour should be exempt from the term childishness. Except maybe pranks and suchlike. Real childishness for me is sulking and being unable to deal with daily life in a mature and grown up way. This means I am very childish. I don't even have a full driving licence and I'm 40. State of it.

Never lost my weakness for Sweep.  The superdog episode remains my favourite comedy thing.  I am 47.

Sweep is a complete legend to be fair. I could go on YouTube right now and find the one where they go to a garden centre and Sweep gets obsessed with buying some slug pellets which are on special offer and repeatedly squeaking "SPECIAL! OFFER!" (in Sweep language) but it would probably end me.

I can't drive and I don't own a home, but that’s just normal these days innit?

I have a pension and an ISA and I go to the dentist regularly so I am capable of doing grown-up things. In between playing too many video games and deciding on the names of beers my imaginary microbrewery will produce.

Fuck yeah, that sounds hilarious! "Sweep gets obsessed with buying some slug pellets" is a glorious enough sentence in itself.

I'm sure you've seen the one where all of Sweep's extended family turn up unannounced, the relevant clip was doing the rounds on social media recently.

Man, that delivers. The patriachal Sweep looking lordly in top hat and cape and his wife, Sweep with a bonnet and glasses drawn on in black pen. And of course there's an Australian Sweep with a corkscrew hat. A cacophany of Sweeps.

Spent a day with a woman last week and was an absolute fucking hyper child around her. Pissing herself silly but still I have something wrong with me.

When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

Don't think I'm dead immature but today got the giggles

One of the boys said he heard someone having a J. Arthur in the shitter. Like, Uh uh uh and the sound of slapping on fabric.

The managing director later saw "evidence" that someone was doing it (!)

Like an idiot I told my female mate who replies immediately with THAT'S DISGUSTING and it just set me off

These are the bogs I moaned about being constantly shit in, a hundred men for four cubicles. So.. Big men arses farting and shitting and leaving streaks of shite up the porcelain, and some fucker is there having a tug, as farting happens around him, shitting noises, plops, the lot, and he's there just going like gang busters to milk his trouser snake

My mate's simple comment has cracked me up since! Just the straightforward, say what you see innocence of it, juxtaposed with my needlessly telling her, while knowing the truth about how depraved it is.. Go in at any time and all you can hear is the sounds of shites being dropped off, and against that backdrop.. IT'S DISGUSTING

Proper LOL stuff

Have you seen the episode where Sweep has a big family reunion and they're overrun with all these other Sweeps in various costumes and wigs? It's amazing, there's even one with Scouse 'alright alright' curly black hair.

This is it, from about 15 mins.

Not sure if this would've been his era but Mr Biffo from Digitiser wrote some Sooty scripts

Do we really need to make such Sweeping changes?

On the other hand, some people might really like the idea of splitting off the thread, and when asked " Should we do this? " might offer the reply " COR! You BET(T)!"*

The correct phrase is 'done toilet'.

I have a tendency to be really tickled by silly little details of things which aren't even that funny. E.g. recently discovered that in Romanian Burger King, a Chicken Royale is called 'Long Chicken'. Now the phrase keeps popping into my head at inopportune moments and making me wheeze with laughter, I think it's the simplicity and literalness that does it.

The Sesame Street aliens (Yip-Yips) are ridiculously funny to me still. The mouths, the noises, just fucking great.

That's right - 'done toilet' is the term used by the... professionals I employ (at £100 an hour) to do the necessary (application of talc and post-feed burping extra). Can I be rude and ask how much you pay?
