Watched Grumpy Old Men and found a reference to 'Welsh road signs being annoying' offensife and racist.

If you dont want to read Welsh road signs.... dont come to Wales, simple. We dont want you.

If you cant read the English that we allow you to have UNDER the Welsh text, you are driving beyond your capabilities and should slow down. Our roads are carefully designed to disuade the influx of English.

The celts were here first, it's not like we're forcing you mungrels to come and visit our sacred land. Sod off to disney or somewhere else thats more at your level of mentality. We're a country, not a tourist attraction.

CYMRU AM BYTH

I watched the Christmas one, but didn't think it was as good as the others... how come they don't like Christmas dinner?! I want to invite them all round to my house next year, we have nice food and a lot of fun!

So they should have beef! It was just a bit sad really, they all sounded so miserable.

Funnily enough, I wasn't too bothered about that. I don't think they were trying to be racist, it's not their fault they don't speak Welsh. It was just a bit twp really... of course there are Welsh road signs in Wales! What else would they expect?

Personally I find it annoying when I'm in England and there aren't Welsh road signs... but I don't think that makes me racist.

I nearly had to be taken to hospital I laughed so much. This was the best I'd laughed in my 55 years. Clearly I am a grumpy old man. Then I noticed to my horror that it was the LAST EPISODE. AARRGGHH!! Well at least I recorded it so I can watch it again, with due reverence, on special occasions.
It proves that "comedy" is not a matter of cracking one-liners, but a whole vision and angle on life. I think Bob Geldof's "taystes loike fockin shoite" set the tone rather well.

if your 55 why are you on a young peoples forum

I wonder what those grumpy old men would say about this forum........funnily I think that I would agree with them again (as is the case most of the time).
