    'The advertisement centres on the word "market" – a word that eastern Europeans/Russians pronounce "meerkat" – using talking CGI-animated meerkats. The sole point of this African animal's appearance is, it seems, to highlight the idea that east Europeans cannot pronounce the word market properly when they speak English. It struck me how racist it was to parody what is now a significant part of the British population in this way.'

    oh ffs...
  2. " However on this occasion, my girlfriend, who is Ukrainian, turned to me and said: "I don't like this advert, it is very offensive to me."

    Then fvckoffski back to Ukraine

  3. Although it's a stretch of the imagination to believe it is possible, the Guardian has gone downhill over the last three years (or so) since it introduced the "Comment is Free" section. It allows no-talent Ruperts and Henriettas space to waffle shite about things they have experienced through TV coverage at best.

    If someone bought the Guardian out and closed it down the next day our breadth and depth of news coverage would not be any poorer.
  4. Compare the com.




    .......................makes my pyss boil.
  5. A Ukranian girlfriend who isn't top prostitute?

    Not so seemple.
  6. If I ever met the cnutbubble who wrote this toxic drivel I would happily stick a rabid meerkat up his worthless guardianista arse, all the time screaming MEERKAT, MEERKAT, NOT FCKING MARKET.

    Fecking simples. Now please be seatful. Lets face it, apart from, the only other thing these people are famous for is chopping each other up in mafia gang-wars so playing on their wobbly accents isn't such a big thing. If they didn't write such pidgeon Engish on their trashy porn sites we would'nt take the piss so much.....
  7. Having compared the meerkats and the markets, and the fact that one is indeed an animated meerkat from Africa and not a prostitute from the Ukraine, I'm happy that this advert in no way, until the Graunibollarks pointed it out, made me think of of Eastern Europe in any way whatsoever, let alone mockingly; until now.

    I will now always associate meerkats with Ukrainian prostitutes who can't speak English properly.

    How sad is that?

  8. Don't get them mixed up though, one will give you a good blow job, the other will bite your knob off.
  9. If it wasn't for this thread I would never have known about this problem the East Europeans etc have with pronouncing English. As I suspect that several other people weren't aware either, then maybe as far as journos are concerned, there are times when it is better to remain silent--- :D

  10. You cnut, my keyboard and screen are dripping coffee.......:)

    Peter Jones practising the art of WAH, and it appeared to work, whatever next.

  12. Then put your knob back in her mouth, it's the kindest thing to do. It makes them feel wanted in much the same way as British girls wanting cuddles.

  13. Sorry to hear that.It won't happen again.

  14. Yes a Ukranian bird tried to bite mine off once..

    Almost put me off rape for life.
  15. Okay Peter Jones is a moron, getting paid to write complete sh*t. That advert is harmless fun =P :twisted:
