Megan what you doing!
Adam got his comeuppance
We all Team Josh now?
Uh oh, I was in the room when my daughter started watching it and I found myself taking a vague interest during the "recoupling" thingamy. I left the room pronto but fear the damage may have already been done.
Both Cif and Lilly Longtongue have been watching this shiny shyte.
I can't be in the same room when it's showing, firstly because it's like fingernails down a blackboard for me and secondly because I can't resist making caustic comments which are not appreciated by the viewers.
For example I observed the other day that I reckon somewhere around 25% of the speech of the participants is made up of the word "like".
"So I'm like, Steve!! You like don't even like her like. And he's like, well she's like alright like. And I'm like..."
Clive, you're a snob
That is so annoying, isn’t it? Why can’t young people talk proper like what we did?
I think you'll find, to be technically correct, it's "like wot we dun"
I have a conspiracy theory for most things and of course I have for this Love Island nonsense.
I think it's made for sneering at poor people for being thick. No need to worry about these dullards! Look at the working class - ignorant clowns who think Brexit is something to do with trees.
However Cif pointed out that some of the people in it are hardly poor. Apparently some of them are 'celebrities'. Still, I definitely reckon there's an element of that about it. Why aren't clever poor people ever shown on these programmes? Why only thickies?
Poor?! What show are you watching? One of them spent over £1,000 on a first date, they pretty much all have photos on their instagram wearing designer clothes, or holding expensive bags. One is Danny Dyer's daughter. These aren't poor people.
Everything is about rich/poor people in Clive’s world. Harmless fun doesn’t exist...
to be fair, I'm sure Clive would agree rhat most stupid people are poor
No I wouldn't. It depends on your definition of stupid. Certainly most poorly educated people are poor, but then that's because the elites prefer to keep us poor and uneducated. That way we don't have the intellectual weapons to resist against them. However there's a difference between being poorly educated and being thick.
Nobody would doubt that the lady and gentlemen tenants of Love Island are crashingly stupid, but as comrade Bear has pointed out above, they're actually richies. And although a lot of these imperi-capi landlord types think they're tremendously clever to have extorted their fortune out of the rest of us, by doing something like buying up a ratty old house, slapping a load of emulsion over it, dividing it into 'bedsits' and letting it out at eye-wateringly high rents to us poor slobs, it's something that anyone could do. There's nothing 'clever' about it at all.
My monster-truck driving, luxury mansion-living, lap of luxury boss just sent out an email about something he wants to take place with "immediate affect". I ask you. What a thick, semi-literate bum. Yet no doubt he thinks he's amazingly clever getting £50 per hour or whatever for my work, whilst paying me only £7.50 per hour.
Duh, it should be immediete affect.
i know clive. it was a lampoon about you seeing a stupid person on the telly and thinking they must be poor. a simple lampoon!
Liked for use of word "lampoon".
You will love this then
No longer have to listen to the whining whingy Liverpudlian lasses droning voice.
Oh dear I appear to be hooked. I hate myself...
Isn't there a doctor and a mechanical engineer in the show?
Searching for a new case for my phone and this came up - thought you lot may appreciate it...
Haven't watched the programme but have read this thread instead so am now well informed.
One question though, is Eyal your actual Eyal Berkovic, and if so shouldn't the thread be in transfer rumours or somesuch?
O tempora, o mores.
