“It’s a funny old world..”

Says Will Crawley in the aftermath of the live interview with Tony Curtis on Talkback this week – ahead of his appearance at the Hay [in Belfast] Festival. It’s Tony Curtis for fuck’s sake. He can say what the fuck he likes.

    Gosh, Pete.

  • Pete Baker

    Sorry susan.

    I should have added – NSFW.

    My bad. ;o)

  • Pigeon Toes

    Yes shocked me as well.

  • susan

    I’m not so green as I’m cabbage looking, PT. Evidently even Mr Baker doesn’t always read his links!

  • 6countyprod

    For Pete’s sake! Do you really have to?

  • Pete Baker

    I do read them, susan.

    But evidently I didn’t quite get the right tone in my reply to your original comment.

    Perhaps this would have been more appropriate..

    Indeed, susan.

  • Pigeon Toes

    “My bad”, and ye know when my daughter first said that I thought it was a South Derry thing…

    B Gosh!

  • susan

    Anything’s better than “heh,” Pete. “heh” makes me effing mental.

  • Pete Baker

    Well, I try not to use “heh” as a response to a comment, susan, but I reserve the right to use it as a comment on a quote in a post.

    Pigeon Toes.

    Indeed. ;o)

  • The Third Policeman

    I don’t mind the odd bit of f’ing and blinding at all but I really would love Pete to go a month without saying ‘indeed’. Or at least to hit the tip jar with a fiver for every time he uses it.

    In this funny old world did ya know that:

    “The name Cameron is a baby boy name. The name Cameron comes from the Gaelic origin. In Gaelic The meaning of the name Cameron is: Crooked. From the Celtic Cameron meaning Crooked nose. Nickname of a Highland chieftain with a crooked nose”


    Now peter there’s an article in there somewhere to be penned.

  • Pigeon Toes

    At least o Tony has given up the wig, but the plastic surgery?

    The person responsible should be saying “My bad”

  • Pigeon Toes

    Pete swearing is like yer granny eating crisps. Wrong…just wrong!

  • Rory Carr

    This is only the beginning. The lineup for the next series includes: Ozzie Osborne; Bob Geldof and (speaking from beyond the grave) Hunter S. Thompson.

  • bootman

    who the fuck is tony curtis?

  • Gosh is a minced oath, Susan – apparently 🙂

  • susan

    lollol, bootman. Tony Curtis is the one who isn’t he father of Carrie Fisher, and never married Elizabeth Taylor.

    Nevin, I was captivated to learn someone wrote to Will Crawley to complain about his use of the word “Gosh.” MInd, the aul dear probably went out to her back garden immediately afterewards to blast fieldmice with an M134 minigun. Funny old world indeed.

    Any word on any other cultural events that might unite the politicians?
