  • All blokes get to that stage when they get bigger than their dad, like fourteen/fifteen, and he can't hit you no more. And he's like 'go to your room!', and your like [high pitched] "Nah! Fucking nah dad! [imitates smoking] things are gonna change around 'ere." Now he didn't hit me, but it took a team of surgeons to remove that fag from my arse.
  • My phone will ring at two in the morning, and my wife'll look at me and go, "Who's that calling at this time?" I don't fucking know! If I knew that we wouldn't need the bloody phone!

You go down there at four and you have to wait in that waiting room with all the coughers for another bloody hour. You know when that doctor comes out at five and he'll say, "I'll see you now." "No you fuckin' won't! I've got a few more posters to read yet! Sit the fuck down!"
  • This bloke... I swear he's in any supermarket car park, he's great. He walks across the car park and he's got one of those fobs and he opens his car before he gets there. [posh voice] "Ha ha ha!

But they don't, you hand your wife the map and she'll go, "Where are we now?" "That's why I gave you the fucking map!" "All right, all right! You got us lost! Christopher fucking Columbus!"

Yeah burglars would walk up to our house and go "Ooooohhhh no! They're all gathered on the landing." We're all on the landing going "Fucking shut up, shut up!" So I go in, I go in, I switch a lamp on, I go "Yes, yes, I'll switch a lamp on that will fool them yeah, yeah, no too obivous, no I'll switch the lamp off" we're all waiting for him in the dark 'BLLUUUAAAARRRGGHHH!'

"Yeah I know, I just don't like that last one!"
  • [about fizzy drinks machines] Who built that machine, to let that can, filled with gas, fall that far? You know, you put in that coin and it's just like *KABOOM!*
  • Why are we still embarrased about the condom machine? The only blokes who are not embarrased are the blokes who don't get any! You know, they wait in the bog, pound in hand, and as soon as someone comes in they're like "Come on! come on! I've got birds waiting!"

JUST TELL ME WHAT THEY FUCKING SAID!" I hate them fuckers! They say stuff like "Feels like a tuesday, does it feel like a tuesday? Yeah, feels like a tuesday." I don't know! How the fuck does tuesday feel? They're like "It's half past five but it only feels like twelve," fucking hell, do they people forget to go to bed because they already think they're asleep?
  • Who are them blokes, the jockeys? Who are they, three foot high fucking hobbits in a pimps outift!
  • People say why do we kill so many cows, well they're *crap!* They have no survival instincts whatsoever! You stand next to any fence in the country and a cow'll walk towards you going "Is it my time yet? I don't mind, just shoot me!" They're dumb animals, otherwise they'd learn to shit without it hitting the back of their legs! They'd swing it out at least! All dumb animals soil themselves! Sheep! Sheep are the same, but they do it for a reason! They're like that[imitating rubbing shit over himself] "Make a jumper outta me, will ya! I don't think so!" [imitating rubbing shit into his head] "Bobble hat? Bollocks!" But cows, ah, they haven't even got any camoflauge! They're black and white, and where do they choose to stand? IN A GREEN FIELD! They can't even run away properly, you chase a cow across a field and they run away like an old drunk!
  • What happened to all the family butchers? People complain there's no family butchers around anymore. Well they're fucking mad! It's the only shop in the high street where you walk in and some blokes covered in blood, mutilating an animal! Before you walk in they're like that "Grrr, GAAAH FUCKING" [imitates chopping motions] soon as you walk in they're like "Good morning, how are you? Okay, goodbye!" You ever seen them unloading the delivery van - the freezer lorry - they get out a side of cow. Where's the *other* side? Is there like a cow still grazing in a field with a fucking side missing? And the frozen pigs, they're always in that position, have you noticed?
  • [imitates position] They're like frozen goalkeepers! They killed it just as it was about to save the ball!
  • I love kebabs, they give you all that meat, that saturated fat, and they give you that little bit of salad. What's that, the healthy section? Never see a drunk do that, do you? "Where's me salad! What you trying to do, kill me?"
  • Peanuts! What happened to peanuts! Now every buggers allergic to peanuts! It's true, you open a packet of peanuts now, and a bunch of five year olds in a five mile radius slam to the floor, jabbing themselves with fucking adrenaline!
  • I swear, the other day I bought a packet of peanuts, and on the packet it said "may contain nuts." Well, fucking YES! That's what I bought the buggers for! You'd be pissed off if you opened it and a socket set fell out!
  • Bird flu! What's that? How do you know a bird's got flu! Some chinese bloke spots one of his chicken with its claws in a bowl of hot water and a towel over its head! Bwrr-rr-rrr-rrr-rrr-rrr-rr!

Even a lobster would go "FUCK THAT"!

The number of times I've been driving through the country and theres a coupla car theives in a field like 'You said there'd be cars!' And thanks for telling us! They're not doing anythin about it! You'd hate it if you were getting mugged and a policeman ran over and said, 'He's muggin you, you know? He's running away with all your money!'
  • [about little boys climbing trees] GET DOWN, fucking GET DOWN, I thought my dad was James Brown when I was a kid. But when they get to 16 its all "get up, fucking get up".
