  1. Irish bitch got PWND! lol

  2. Nothing wrong with sucking dick for cheeseburgers. Regular burgers, on the other hand.. euh.

    I’m sorry, I find nothing funny about writing a gigantic response to someone who has chastised you for your immature bullshit. AND WHAT, Lamebook, is with all the 2009 submissions lately?

  3. Missed censoring the name there, start of the fifth row of Lydians reply…

  4. Who does that? Like what the hell?
    ‘Oh here’s a random group that clearly is between a small group of friends. I think I’ll write a message and be all pissy at them. That seems reasonable’

  5. “I don’t know if the Irish get sarcasm or irony like we Americans”

    HAHAHAHAHA

  6. Might want to get onto blurring Sarah’s surname out there ;)

    What kind of stupid names are Khulile, Kwanele, and Kagiso?

  7. Good call Frank, I’ve found Sarah and Lydian.

  8. lol… the first one is full of win

  9. Unfortunately, while Lydian should be commended for a classic act of pwnage, she is also acting just like the American ol’ Sarah was critical of, full of poison and angst.

  10. Also, I would very much like to also find this Sarah individual. Any help here?

  11. I didn’t think Lydian was all that mean. She was just defending her friends and pointing out that this random ass girl didn’t understand their inside joke.

  12. I thought Americans didn’t generally get sarcasm/Irony? Isn’t that more British humour?

  13. Brittany is a win in my book

    And at first I thought the “you people are all really mean” was about lamebook and then I remember that we are not mean just funny as hell.

  14. We get sarcasm; that’s why we can appreciate Comic Book Guy. Although Professor Frink did need to build a sarcasm detector.

  15. I’m not saying you don’t all get it just that the general impression over here is that a lot of Americans don’t and I can’t judge myself as I have only been to America once when I was 14. It is probably things like the professor Frink sarcasm detector that gives that impression.

  16. And am I the only one that doesn’t get the Kagiso comment? or am I just being dumb?

  17. Well when I grew up I had a friend from the UK who introduced me to Blackadder, Fawlty Towers, and most importantly, Red Dwarf, so I guess I am a bad example as I am well versed in British Humor (humour) :P .

  18. “And am I the only one that doesn’t get the Kagiso comment? or am I just being dumb?”

    The comment is dumb. He is saying that her gay friend will always have her back as far as companionship, but will also have her boyfriend’s back, as in playing naked leapfrog with him. So don’t feel dumb because it was just lame and poorly written.

  19. @uoykcuf

    I had to read it a couple times but here’s what I think it means: Khulile (another great name) is a female who wants a gay guy friend ot “have her back” and Kagiso (serisouly, these have to be fake names) is saying the gay guy will also have Khulile’s boyfriend’s back – meaning they would be having gay sex together.

  20. I have not much to say except for something I’m reminded of as a result of the mention of leprechauns.

    Has anybody here seen the film Leprechaun? No? Go on. GO rent it. I can wait.
    Leprechaun is the greatest film of our time. Jennifer Aniston, her dad, a little kid, and his mentally deficient adult friend are chased around by a wacky leprechaun played by the guy Ricky Gervais kicked in the face on Extras.
    Oh yeah, it’s a horror movie.

    On the actual topic… why would a gay friend have her back anymore than a straight guy? Ohhh, right, because we’d be too busy sitting there thinking about fucking her to listen to her problems? Damn, we gotta work on that.

  21. *to

  22. The fact that you like Blackadder, Fawlty towers and Red Dwarf automatically makes you awesome. Now try The Mighty Boosh and your well on your way :)

  23. Also: ol de tym? Fuck me! xD

  24. Am I the only one who doesn’t consider casual homophobia to be a ‘win’?

  25. Oh right thanks for explaining it but I still didn’t crack a smile! maybe that’s just me though.

  26. Hobo I loved the flim leprechaun as a kid. It was a great flim. I think I still have it on VHS

  27. Talking of awesome British comedies, rent the aforementioned Extras (man, I’m just a big old advertisement whore today, aren’t I?) and watch it over and over and over and over before the Americans rip it off and replace drama and humour with Steve Carrel bumbling about and being a moron ;)

    (Sarcasm. Before my fiancee [or any other Steve Carrel fans] murders me :P )

  28. The first one is awesome. I snorted.

  29. The 40-Year Old Virgin = great

    The American version of The Office = not so great

  30. Red Dwarf is an awesome show… even if you arent into british humor, its a good one… blackadder was alright… monty python was great when i was a kid, but seems a bit silly at times now that I am older

  31. @ amitj
    that office (american version) sucks… never seen the british version… But 40 year old virgin was great

  32. British hobo I have to agree, Steve Carrel Raped The office.

    Though he is good in Little miss sunshine but the raping of the office is unforgivable, the office is set in slough and only slough!!

  33. I don’t mean to repeat this as it is sort of advertising but anyone who is appreciative of decent comedies must watch the mighty boosh! Also league of gentlemen if your into dark humour. We seem to get a lot of American comedies over here but people in America get few of ours.

  34. CommentsAtLarge

    Glad to hear I’m not the only one whose not part of the Office-is-hilarious groupthink. A friend of mine lent me teh DVD set of “Coupling” – I thought it was pretty funny, I just didn’t get some of the English pop culture references.

  35. CommentsAtLarge

    *the

    man, it’s gonna be a type-o day I can tell…

  36. JesusOnADinosaur

    Khulile, Kwanele, Kagiso.
    I think their parent’s took April’s fools a little too beyond April.

  37. Dukey Smoothy Buns

    @ HOBO #29 Amitj has been a bigger whore than you, (s)he has been pushing the ‘that’s what she said’ site for days now I even thought it was a bot until I saw (him/her) having a some wit today

  38. Any Spaced, Black Books or Father Ted fans here?

  39. Not like I haven’t had a different opinion before, but I like The Office. It’s not hilarious, but it does make me giggle. My boyfriend loves it. Go ahead and flame away. Hahaha. I really don’t care that much.

  40. …Amitj wasn’t pushing that site. If you reread her comment, you’ll see she was making fun on the people advertising the twss site.

  41. Opps. I’m too slow… and sorry. In that case, HE and HIS. Not her and she.

  42. Thanks for giving me my “junk” back, Katara. It felt weird peeing sitting down for those two minutes.

  43. @knobjockey: I love all three of those shows :D

    I guess I could form an army of Steve Carrel haters by telling you all how he wants to remake Only Fools And Horses starring him and Ricky Gervais… but somehow, peversely… I’m looking forward to that…

  44. British hobo please tell me your making the only fools and horses thing up?

  45. And knobjocky I’ve not seen the first but black books is good and Father Ted was awesome!

  46. @ uoykcuf: apparently he wasn’t making it up

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2010/feb/01/steve-carell-pass-notes

  47. I hate people like Khullie [wtf?] who treat gays like they’re some toy dog breed they can accessorize with.

  48. @knobjockey oh dear god! the thought of steve carrel playing del boy has just depressed me.

  49. What is it with all the surprise at the names Khulile, Kwanele and Kagiso? You do realise that the US isn’t the only country on Earth? There’s hundreds of other countries, thousands of languages and cultures, and they don’t all have names like Brittanie, Kandie, or Shabamaniquisha. Or Rick.

  50. @ uoykcuf: I know what you mean. The idea of hearing “Rodney, you douchebag” doesn’t quite have the same effect. Rodney always was, and always will be, a plonker.

    Let’s just keep our fingers crossed it’s one of those stupid Hollywood pet projects that actors say they’ve always wanted to do, but it never actually sees the light of day…

  51. WhooHoo! South Africans on Lamebook. Way to go Khulile, Kwanele and Kagiso.

  52. I’d rather see people suck dick for a cheeseburger, than swap a puppy for a case of beer, so good on you Brittany.

    I don’t like cheeseburgers, so no remuneration would be necessary for my services.

  53. On the Only Fools and Horses remake, I keep swinging between ‘interested to see how it turns out’ and ‘Steve Carrel as Del Boy? Fuck off.’
    But that article clinched it for me.
    Vince Vaughn as Boycie? Get out.

    Then again, Ben Stiller as Granddad just makes me think it’s a sick twisted joke :|

  54. But if Father Sha offered me a case of his fantastic Belgian beer, then he’d be a very lucky man.

  55. Khulile, Kwanele, and Kagiso are real names, they probably sound funny when anglicised.

    Great seeing saffers on board, just when I had decided to stop commenting! :-)

  56. Ahahaha, they gay guy one completely makes up for how sad the other three are.

  57. first one is code for ‘I have a great body! Look at my recently tagged pics to see what a great body I have!’

  58. Nantaise – You’re obviously nicer than I am; my variation of your analysis would have been “I am a shamelessly self-promoting whore”.

  59. I hate remakes, British Office = awesome.
    As are the early seasons of Ab Fab.

    But for mine, The Young Ones is my all time favourite classic British comedy. Thank God no one got their hands on that one.

  60. CommentsAtLarge

    Hope she’s not sucking dick for McDonalds cheeseburgers – those bad boys are only like $1. Either that or she needs to work on her skills.

    @word

    Can’t offer Belgian beer, but how about a nicely-aged California wine?

  61. Comments, after seeing the movie Sideways, I might just come on over, and if you take me on a wine tour of the Napa region, we’ll see what eventuates ok.

  62. CommentsAtLarge

    @ word

    A good portion of that movie was filmed not far from me – they have a “Sideways” Tasting Tour. First there, then Napa. ;)

  63. MonkeyCMonkeyDo

    no one likes Mr. Bean? :(

  64. british comedy = love. everyone see the original death at a funeral before tyler perry kills another great movie

  65. I’ve seen it Hobo. I was like seven at the time. A word of advice to the people going to rent it, don’t let your children watch it.

    I wonder if Brittany pays extra for special orders or Value Meals?

  66. “Hey, you teenagers should grow up. I can judge anything I want without knowing the context because I have a university education which I feel I have to bring up because I’m insecure about my intelligence.”

  67. you do know that USA is not the only country in world right? u do know that english is not the only language in the world right? Khulile, Kagiso and Kwanele are South African names and they all have meanings. come for the world cup u’ll hear some names u can’t even pronounce. gotta Love S.A

  68. thepreviouspost

    Kagiso: pretty lame.
    And Brittany: instead of sucking dick for a cheeseburger, next time you should take it up yours for a whole value meal.

  69. @kgmilano, if we want to hear a lot of names we can’t pronounce we’ll just go off to the ghetto where people give their children such beautiful names as Treveonte, Dontrarius, Darquavius, and many others.

  70. Americans are too awesome to understand nerdy things like sarcasm and irony, mates.

  71. Mighty Boosh does rule.
    Though to get the full experience you need to watch it in 420D

  72. Brittany takes “Have it your way” to a whole new level.

  73. Is that Stoned Dumb Definition Troll?

  74. is Lydian a boy or a girl? maybe both? stupid fucking name though.

  75. @ HeSaidWhat: of course

  76. notsousual42, could not agree more, what an absolute piece of crap that recent “Death at a funeral” was.

    NoLongerTroll, yes, props for the Boosh. Never a better name for a character than Mr Susan. I love it.

  77. dietpillpyramidscheme

    I love a good British comedy, the Boosh, Black Books, Monty Python, etc are brilliant.

    Don’t discount the ability of Americans to make classy satire, though. When you consider that the American remakes are mainstream, and therefore usually shit – having been dumbed down for the average moron.

    What about The Daily Show? Jon Stuart is a genius!

    If you’d like to try some Australian humour, try The Chaser: (CNNN, The Chaser’s War On Everything), pretty much anything by Shaun Micallef: (Newstopia, The Micallef Programme)

    Any other suggestions, Word?

  78. Another great Aussie show.
    Wilfred.
    I don’t know if you can stream it online if you are OS.
    It’s worth a look.

  79. dietpill, I was a huge fan of the D-Generation. Their dubbing of the Lucky Grills show Bluey, and calling it Bargearse, will be forever in my mind as one of the funniest things ever.

    Rob Sitch is a genius, and I loved his work in Frontline too.

    I could think of more I’m sure mate, but gotta put the gladrags on and head to the pub.
    I’ll have one for you.

  80. @TylerDurdenUMD
    i thought Zulus in S.A gave their kids funny names. but they don’t top those u said. lol. do they even mean anything?

  81. lol

  82. I do love a bit of British comedy :)

    Love Father Ted, Monty Python etc…never seen Black Books, though I do like Bill Bailey’s stand up.

    The Office was ok…the one bit that did make me laugh was the stapler in the jelly. Genius!

    Then again, I’m also a big Friends fan – even though it’s overplayed and I’ve watched every episode numerous times, it still makes me laugh :)

  83. violently_caucasian

    @RatherBeRiding

    Don’t mean to nitpick but father ted was irish comedy produced for an english channel.

    also “i dont know if the Irish get sarcasm and irony like we Americans” lololololololololol

  84. @knobjockey

    Father Ted and Black Books are two of the best shows EVER made!!

    Monty Python is legendary!!

    And Ricky Gervais is a one-trick-pony-sell-out who should be shot for selling the concept…

    ”Milligan, Cleese, Everett. Sessions.”

    Oh look!! There’s a leprechaun outside in the garden picking daisies!!! :O

  85. @RatherBeRiding

    Of course it was!!! TV in Ireland is shite!!! (yes I said shite…I’m a leprechaun…)

  86. @ Jujumushu

    TV here may be a bit on the rubbish side of things, but at least we’ve got JEDWARD to keep us smiling, right? (that’s sarcasm – see we do know what it means)

    At least our comedians are fantastic – David O’Doherty, Daire O’Brien, Dylan Moran and I really think everyone should check out Dead Cat Bounce.

  87. HA!! I would kill Jedward if I could…

    Yes…we seem to be a bunch of funny fuckers alright! :D

  88. That American one is such a fool,would be the same as someone from here saying to her:

    “oh i thought you’re country was meant to filled with obese people,searching for McDonalds.Oh well,say hi to George Bush for me!”

    Typical stereotypes!:@
    Also,any comedy from the US is terrible with the few exceptions,so yes,we do get jokes,irony and sarcasm..ugh what a closed minded person getting their idea of Ireland from watching the St.Patrick’s Day simpsons where we all talk like complete idiots and live in the past,and the way they made fun of the north and south not getting on would be the same us making a joke about 9/11 like it was no big deal.

    Too many people were killed here in the fight for indepence and the divisions it created,car bombs are terriost attacks too no?

    Idiots.

  89. Very true!!!

    However…I am a red(ish) haired, green eyed Irish girl who has a seeeeeerious drinking problem…

    I think I may be letting the side down a bit…

  90. btw bubbaa…you sound really like a guy in my year!!

  91. @Bubbaa

    I’m fairly sure that her saying the thing about leprechauns was a joke. I highly doubt that any educated person sincerely believes that there are little men dressed in green running around with pots of gold.

  92. dietpillpyramidscheme

    Word, I think I’m a bit young for most of them, sadly.

    It shouldn’t be, but I often find Media Watch one of the funniest shows on current TV. Jonathan Holmes and his dry wit.. it makes me… not dry..

  93. dietpill, totally agree about Media watch, and I also love seeing Marg and Dave go at it on the Movie show.

    I think they are really in love with each other.

    I’m sure you can get D-Gen (Late show) and Frontline on DVD at the ABC store.
    Definitely worth a look.

  94. dietpillpyramidscheme

    You ever see ‘Review: With Miles Barlow’?

    Not everyone’s taste, but brilliant, I thought.
    Plus, he engages David Stratton in a fist-fight!

  95. I’ve a friend from Chicago, like many American’s he has Irish family and so he came to visit and did a tour around the country. He went to the Guiness factory and texted me to tell me that “some guy from the Bronx just asked if Guiness was distilled from sheep” if someone can believe that, they can definitely believe there are leprechauns.

    Also, when we roadtripped America my friend told everyone we met that she was Bono’s daughter and said her name was bainne (irish for milk). Too funny.

  96. The Mighty Thor

    Adrian! Verily! It Doth Mjolnir, not Mjonir! The Mighty Thor doth not guide yon in yonder journey! The Mighty Thor was bat’ling his wicked step brother Loki, The God Of Mischief
