Beeb reworks Wuthering Frikkin' Heights

Contemporary?

"Contemporary" for Radio 3 means 1957, doesn't it?

Surely...

Mine's the one with the... actually, you don't want to know.

I may be stupid, but...

surely getting a private facial is less shocking than getting out of cars with no knickers on?

Not guilty of armed robbery perhaps...

Not their fault

Perhaps they saw "NSFW", didn't read it properly, and thought it related to them.

Brits 'a bunch of yellow bastards', says irate Yank

Robajob
Thumb Down

Poor effort

Perfectly acceptable grammar and spelling, no exclamation marks (never mind multiple exclamation marks), no swearing worthy of the name, and only one word capitalised. What does this amateur think he's doing?

Commentard completely loses the plot

Robajob
Happy

Imagine my disappointment

...when the one comment wasn't from the guy (I'm guessing) who posted the original foaming-mouth toss. Brilliant stuff though. The man is truly the voice of modern Britain, and I'm not just taking shit.

.

By the way, "the hoi polloi?" Tsk - surely everyone knows that "hoi" means "the"? well the fact you cant speek ainchent greek correct makes me want to take on board you advice, could you ell me what schools you went to so I never send my kids there

Suprise at spelling snafu sanctions

No need to correct their spelling...

Just knock marks off for it. If they haven't got the nous to find out what's wrong with their spelling then what the hell are they doing at university in the first place?

Singapore forum 'scammer' faces caning and prison

Robajob

Actually...

I think it is disk in this case, isn't it? Like program/programme.

Still, "grammer"?

Just to drag us briefly back onto the article, it's good to see there's something Blighty excels at - nobody designs a caning trestle like us.

Judge points laser dazzler man towards prison

Robajob

@Mike

I see. So presumably the "extreme meausures" of bombing the shit out of a large part of the Middle East "employs" the extreme counter-measures of blowing people up everywhere else in the world. The fact that you apparently can't tell the difference between disabling a CCTV camera and (potentially) causing a helicopter to crash in an urban area makes me think that your spelling and grammar aren't the only indicators of your intellectual level.

Navy sonar dolphin 'massacre' - the facts

Robajob

The new Navy sonar system won't be a threat to Dolphins either

Presumably it's been outsourced to someone crap and won't work anyway, or will work but not in the sea, or something.
