Think it's sad that people of any age find humour in African poverty.

 

Take it with a pich of salt - these chaps find humour in African poverty - but raise £1000's for them with the charity work they do etc... like I said generation thing, this generation is more open to horrible humour (can't believe he said that type stuff). That's why people like gervais, merchant and pilkington do so well.

You can tell who the oldies are on here - must be a generation thing. I don't get laurel and hardy!

 

I just found Ricky's false laughter annoying and a lack of creativity in any answers or conversation that would be deemed as funny .

I'm a great fan of humour , but didn't find it funnt to be honest .

I can remember "jokes" about Biafrans starving in the Nigerian civil war in 1967.....nothing new...wasn't funny then either.

 

Why does every generation think they invented everything (when it's clear my generation did) :lol: ?
