Jo Brand

She has been at it again and in the News today. According to her, those idiots throwing milkshakes should replace it with battery acid. Outrageous and inexcusable you may say? Not so. She is being defended by all and sundry as apparently it was a joke. Well I never. She tells jokes?
Everything you need to know about Brand in one of her quotes

When I got married, the Sun ran the headline: "Here comes the bride, all fat and wide." Luckily, it was a few days after the wedding - but it was still hideous to read at a great romantic moment.

Jo Brand

She has made a living telling us how fat she is, but as soon as someone else does it, it's not funny.
How very socialist.

Brand & Harry Hill are the most irrittingly unfunny so called 'comediens' on the planet!
Bremner,Bird & Fortune however are,at present,the best.
Don’t forget John Finnemore: IMHO the best of the current crop. A very clever comedy writer, he can be satirical and zany, but never offensive - just funny.

Cabin pressure makes me laugh out loud, even though I’ve heard the episodes multiple times.

Did you hear the recent ‘bee keeper’ routine, I thought that was very good.

I fcuking love Jo Brand. Partly as a result of wishing that I'd been born a lezzer but mainly because she trolls the kind of gammony cnut who is quick to accuse any faintly liberal person under the age of about 30 of being a snowflake.

I heard the programme as it was broadcast. To be fair, its not going to incite me to throw acid on anyone. And I’m not offended to the point of spontaneous combustion by the remark.

But what if:
* Farage had made that comment about chucking acid on remainers?
*Any male had made the comment about chucking acid on feminists?
* Or fat, unfunny, lesbian comedians?
* Anyone had made the comment about chucking acid on any BBC presenter?

I think there would have been uproar in the media.

I also think it would probably be classed as a hate crime in certain circumstances, depending on who said it and who the intended target was.

What we need is:
1. One rule for one, and one for all, and
2. People applying a bit of common sense and not getting aerated about pathetic attention seekers making unfunny “look at me” jokes - whether that is Jo Brand or whether it is Nigel Farage, or anyone else in between.

I put it in The Brexit thread as it concerned Nigel.
I find the hypocrisy of the BBC almost laughable, same as Jo Brand come to think of it.

I'm pretty sure that you don't know what "Socialist" is you Sun reader.

You're a good soldier.

She lives near me, and a friend of mine is JB's driver/security. She (JB) often shows up in the coffee shop I frequent. She's totally unfunny in real life, too. Wish I had her bank account, though.

Ditto on ‘Cabin Pressure’ and bee-keeping.
This evening he did a very good, real laughter, skit - ‘No Charlotte, you have to be a Princess when you grow up’ .

Jaroslav Hašek was satirising precisely the kind of person who gets teary-eyed at the sight of a flag and plays war with a plastic Spitfire, but can't handle art that takes the piss out of that kind of thing without having an aneurysm.

And I'm pretty sure you know what you would like socialism to be, but it always seems to be the wrong type!
By the way page 3 is my favourite.

Could you be persuaded to throw milk shake over her and then apologise for not doing it to her approved method?
