Believe me, hoomin: Eternity in the company of Beelzebun and all his hellish instruments of death will be a picnic compared to five minutes with me... and this frown!

Everything goes over your head, doesn't it, human? You should go to Jamaica and become a limbo dancer.

Hence the term Black Irish.

You and your anger, Blackadder! Get over it and accept that we humans are going to do silly things.

Hey Blackadder! We all know your mommy is kinda silly. You'll just have to live with a little bit of lost dignity (especially around Halloween). Don't disapprove too much. Kisses!

Well, There goes the luck of the Irish.

::sigh:: oh Blackadder, why must you be so rotten? You know your mama loves you, otherwise she wouldn't take pictures to show your adorable yet rotten self off to the world!

Oh, another Blackadder!!! I had a Blackadder bun for over 10 years...and he had a little bun sidekick named Baldric...and you can imagine the adventures they had!

Fleetie said...

I am sure that Baldric bunny was still considerably cleverer than any stoopid hoomin!

(For non-UK readers: "Blackadder" was a famour TV programme in the 80s to 90s which had several series/"seasons", but all with a semi-evil, scheming, eponymous main character, and a rather stupid, grubby and short sidekick called "Baldrick". Baldrick had a catchphrase: "I have a cunning plan..."; but his "cunning plans" were always incredibly stupid.

Wikipedia on Blackadder

Hence my observation that even a bunny called "Baldric" would still be far cleverer than any stoopid hoomin.)

Ah yes, even over here in the Dominion of Canada, "Blackadder" was shown on some stations. Gotta love Rowan Atkinson, especially in his pre-Mr. Bean days.

I am such a stoopid hoomin! I never saw Hugh Laurie before his first appearance on "House". Imagine my surprise to see him speaking with an English accent on some American talk show!

Fleetie said...

Janet : You should check out "Jeeves and Wooster".

Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry, in the early 90s.

To be honest, Fry outshines Laurie in this, and it's what (IMNSHO) Fry should be remembered for. The best work of his life, IMO. But Laurie (playing Bertie Wooster) is still good. And it's what he is most famous for in the UK (by far, apart from "House" (which I am proud to say I have never watched)).

Based on P.G.Wodehouse stories, apparently.

There are some other fantastically-acted other characters that crop up in the various series/seasons of "Jeeves and Wooster", notably the eternally-angry and violent, yet still somewhat aristocratic Roderick Spode ("Do you know what I'm going to DO to you, Wooster, you snake in human form?! I'm going to break your neck in five places!").

Yes, if you like Hugh Laurie and his English (true) accent, you may well like "Jeeves and Wooster". The last series was a bit pants though. I think it ran to about 4 series; the first 2 or 3 were best.

@Fleetie: I read the PG Wodehouse novels before seeing "House" and consequently looked up Hugh Laurie on Youtube. It is just hilarious seeing a young Laurie playing Wooster. Wooster is just the pale, overbred aristocrat a lot of us colonials picture when we think of the landed gentry. I understand Laurie comes from an upper class background. And the best part is Jeeves, played by Fry, is far and away more intelligent than his "master."

Blackadder: "Baldrick, have you no idea what 'irony' is?"

Baldrick: "Yeah... it's like goldy and bronzy, only it's made of iron."
