Hookey

Ruddy Hell....

Recommended Posts

Did anyone see that load of old sh1t last night? What a disappointment!!!

 

I used to love watching Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse, and I thought the Paul Whitehouse Experience was the best sketch show of the '90s.

 

Call me old fashioned (F**K off if you do laugh), but I did not think the Laurel & Hardy meets Brokeback Mountain sketch in the slightest bit funny. In fact it was cringeworthy!!!

 

Anyone???

Gotta agree with you Hookey. I was really disappointed with the show. The only bit that made me really laugh were the scaffolders. Unfortunately the two talented comedians haven't moved with the times.... frown

Agreed Bitchypoos, the scaffolders (anyone remember "Lily the Pink" by The Scaffolds? No? I digress, that was a highlight in a lowlight show.

 

I heard that Enfield and Whitehouse had fallen out because Whitehouse sided with Charlie Higson, when the latter fell out with the former.

I'll be watching more in hope than expectaion, but I'm impressed that a young lass like yourself would remember a No 1 from '68!!!

For those of you too young to remember:

 

We'll drink a drink a drink to

Lily the pink a pink a pink

The saviour of the human race

For she invented medicinal compound

Most efficacious in every case

 

Mr Frears had sticky out ears

And it made him awful shy

And so they give him medicinal compound

And now he's learning how to fly

 

Brother Tony was notably bony

He would never eat his meals

And so they give him medicinal compound

Now they move him round on wheels

 

We'll drink a drink a drink to

Lily the pink a pink a pink

The saviour of the human race

For she invented medicinal compound

Most efficacious in every case

 

Well Ebeneezer thought he was Juilius Ceasar

And so they put him in a home

Where they give him medicinal compound

And now his emperor of Rome

 

Johnny hammer had a terrible stammer

He could hardly say a word

And so they give him medicinal compound

And now his seen and never heard

 

We'll drink a drink a drink to

Lily the pink a pink a pink

The saviour of the human race

For she invented medicinal compound

Most efficacious in every case

 

Auntie Milly ran willy-nilly

When her legs they did recede

And so they hooked on medicinal compound

Now they call her Millipede

 

Jenifer Eccles had terrible freckles

And the boys all call her names

But she changed with medinical compound

And now he joins in all their games

 

We'll drink a drink a drink to

Lily the pink a pink a pink

The saviour of the human race

For she invented medicinal compound

Most efficacious in every case

 

Lily the pink she turned to drink she

Filled up with parafin inside

And dispite her medicinal compound

Sadly pickalily died

 

Up to heaven her soul ascended

For the church bells they did ring

She took with her medicinal compound

Hark the herald angels sing

Rubbish, I thought it was a fairly good effort last night, nothing amazing by any means but it wasn't bad.

 

Did you not think the Brokeback Mountain, Nelson Mandela etc sketches were "with the times"? I don't think they were like that originally.

I think the Nelson Mandela one's were particularly awful shocked

But would they have done that 12 years ago? I think it shows they were trying (at least) to keep with the times. Ah well, Peep Show was on after. Wonderful.

They were shockingly sh1t. I could do a better Nelson Mandela than him and how the f**k was the sketch L&H modern????

BTW, I will be extremely upset with amyone who mocks L&H. ... They have been warned

Stan and Ollie were wonderful mate, no arguments there.

 

Modern for them! Would Whitehouse and Enfield have done a sex scene like that 12 years ago?!

I dont think they were ever that funny and even the constant ads for it made me reach for the mute button everytime it came on between every programme!!!

I think it's the style in which they do it that isn't with the times JP. And if i was Nelson Mandela i'd friggin sue them!

Now about the peep show? I missed that! frown

Only the last sketch had any true Enfield/Whitehouse humour to it.

 

Lets hope this series will improve as it progresses.

I noticed that about Enfield when I've seen him interviewed on chat-shows.

 

Mind you - His Dad seems rather an agressive type, though you don't see him much on T.V. these days now.
