To the Eurovision topic!..



They were just mad that they couldn't take part in the finals, so they made strange votes.

I did not wish to say anything here, but since you brought it up, all I will suggest is that with this weekend's events and the Eurovision happening last night, suddenly the Eurosong episode of Father Ted seems bitingly relevant, now. See the scene where Ted digs himself into a conversational hole with the producer of the selection contest... emoticon


You'll never guuess what episode they played the moment the contest finished...

...alongside the classic one with the Chinese family.

Occasionally, telly in some part of the world comes across a little village just over the border in Donegal, that makes them laugh. I'm used to that place, you just drive down the road five or ten minutes from where I live and you're there. It's a so-called 'border town'. For years, I never understood why it made people laugh. It's one of those situations where you're used to a thing since childhood so don't think much of it, but then a visitor finds it odd and you can't understand why.





I mean, what's the problem? Seriously, I was 25/26 before someone explained it to me. Wish I hadn't asked. emoticon

I'm always amazed by the things you don't know! You must have gone to such a virtuous school.

It was a Catholic school, actually. emoticon It wasn't so much the school, it was me. I was known for being particularly squeamish. And by squeamish I mean sitting at the back of the room, covering my ears and going 'la-la-la not listening!' (not those actual words, more a loud humming) during sex-ed. I'm not kidding. Didn't help that they were using a video that looked like it had come straight from an episode of Father Ted.

Here's another one for you; I didn't know what the dole was until GCSE Business Studies. Or to be specific; I knew what benefits were, but didn't know people called it the dole. My classroom assistant was even stunned by that one.

Our sex education video was some woman being shrunk down and going inside someone's body. A really cheaply made set of the inside of a body. I remember a room with balloons stuck in the walls being used as the inside of the guy's lungs for the episode about smoking emoticon
They showed a couple having sex (I'm assuming it was acted...) and then the woman actually giving birth for real.

This was shown to us in year six, so we were 9 or 10.

Before, I was going to make a joke that technically we're ALL from Muff. Good job I didn't.
