Enjoy the giggle

Due to a lack of inspiration and a thoroughly boring work and personal life I thought I'd post up some funny comments from viewers. I am posting as they are written; grammar, spelling and style of typing.

"Viewer called to say 'I think your competition prize is getting lower and lower. No way should the prize be any less than £3000.00. I want something done about it.'"

- Someone obviously has a bill that needs to be paid of £3000.00. We should all have that mentality. I refuse for the lottery to be less than £10 million pounds - you're just being cheap otherwise.

"I am so annoyed at the constant Big Ben chime at the start and end of the (name of news) news coverage, it is so un-necessary. Your channel must have lost many, many viewers."

- From a chime? I thought we watched shows for entertainment or mental stimulation. The news is for the news, who cares about a single chime at the beginning and the end?!

"I HAVE NOW FOR SEVERAL MONTHS WANTED TO EMAIL YOU AS TO WHY (the news presenter) DOES NOT WINK ANYMORE WHEN HE STARTS HIS NEWS REPORT, WHO HAS STOPPED THIS? I HAVE FOUND THIS LITTLE GESTURE VERY PLEASANT AND INDIVIDUAL TO (the news presenter) AND THE NEWS REPORT, I AM VERY SAD THAT HE DOES NOT DO THIS ANYMORE."

- Perhaps the two of you had a little bit of a falling out?

"Viewer's letter "A man was seen smoking a cigarette tonight. This is not the first time either. A member of the cast was also fingering a fag inside the police station. I am contacting my MP about this lousy practice. Stop it!"

- Thankfully they mentioned cigarette first or I'd be rather worried about this particular statement.

"Viewer called to say, `my daughter is in tears, my wife has run into the garden screaming and I would rather be sitting there answering your calls than watching this rubbish'."

- It's call a remote.

Well I hope you enjoyed these and hopefully I'll have some inspiration soon!

I can't believe people actually send this stuff! That is so hilarious!

Hey, your co. should start a channel when books are slowly paged through, so those who can't conceive of reading when there's nothing on telly, can flip to that channel and read! That way they don't even have to stop watching TV (since they don't seem capable of doing that!)

FINALY the presenter has had his nervous tic removed and gotten through all his issues and someone takes it PERSONALLY...
I love you job-but you can keep it :-)

Moe Wanchuk said...

The Divine Miss M said...

@kab - Glad you didn't sucks when you don't have an extra pair with you!

@moe - I don't know hey, somehow fingering a fag sounds worse than smoking one!

Miss P said...

It could be worse. He could have said 'bumming a fag'....

Proof, once again, that watching television makes you stupid.

sweets said...

Fingering fags in public is just plain rude.

It also explains my first "Lewd and Lascivious" arrest, but that's another story.

Mike said...

Obviously everyone can’t be pleased all of the time and some can’t be pleased any of the time. I generally ignore the latter.

Aaah, another one of my favourite Friday posts. Between this and all the nonsense e-mails I have been getting today, I am doing no work at all - bliss!

Miss T said...

hilarious!..you should publish some sort of book with all those viewer comments

The Divine Miss M said...

@nick - If it was possible to please everyone what would film critics do?

@lopz - do you EVER work? :P

@miss tig - I think I'd get fired. Probably walk a close line with posting them!
