So what part annoys you? Thats he's showing people how to cook, with the tright ingredients? That he has a nice kitchen to cook in, or that he talks funny?

That he uses tright ingredients.

I enjoy the 'cooking masterclass' programmes - it is something to aspire to; I wish I could cook even half as well as these people. Not much "making do in tough circumstances" in evidence', which is what it purports to be.

But, enough now, my chain has been sufficiently pulled, methinks :D

Yeah true I don't want to pile in BUT... it also really annoys me how IMHO the Brits love to hate anyone who's mega-successful and Jamie Oliver is a good example. Yeah I know the 'puka geezer' routine is a bit annoying but he's tried to do lots of things that really should be admired. His cooking schools with troubled teenagers or attempts to do something about child obesity for example.

He's bloody famous too, I remember seeing a French mate of mine in Barcelona using his books 15 years ago, that's quite something when you think about it, a Mockney teaching the French how to cook.
I think he's alright.

PeterH 14-04-2020 09:45 PM

He's an okay watch...pucker innit.

He showed my missus how to cook fruit crumble. I thank him for that.

Stupid questions asked by the BBC breakfast news team. This morning Sally Nugent might have just won the competition. Following a brief report on Captain Tom raising 4m quid for the NHS, Sally said “another person now raising money for the NHS is Geraint Thomas, the Tour de France winner. He will be cycling 3 twelve hour shifts in his garage”.
And her question to Geraint was “ what made you think of doing this” ?

I totally agree. I have already said I admire the talent of these people and I hope a small part of their talent could rub off on me. Yes, Jamie Oliver can be a bit annoying at times, but that comes with the territory, so to speak.

I was just panning the 'Keep Cooking And Carry On' series as totally missing the mark in the current climate - in my opinion.

It was discussed here but I warned them I sit in my pants and there was likely to be inadvertent mouse escaping. Soon kiboshed that.

Wife is on video every call. Not because she looks nice but it's an industry that likes surveillance. They genuinely think you are doing f-all if you only answer on audio. Private sector intelligence there.

A couple of years back I met him and Greg Wallace at battersea construction site when they came to film celebrity masterchef in the site canteen. Biggest couple of pri#ks going. Wouldn't speak to anyone , hardly get involved with it and go near them and dare ask for a photo and they looked at you like shit and just said talk to our People.

Add that the masterchef semi final seems to be on tv all the fecking time, night after night and yes. Annoying

Gregg puts a ‘t’ in chori(t)zo, which really annoys the pedant in me. My wife would probably confirm that that’s a lot of pedant.

We had a friend involved with Wallace on a publishing venture. The way she described him was not flattering. So I will concur that he is most probably a c*nt. The Toad is just an arsehole.

I still do not get the idea of treating f*cking cooks as though they're rock stars. They're nearly all c*nts, as far as I can tell.

The big error here is people thinking they are worthy of getting a photo with.

Their attitudes might change if nobody asked for photos and people switched their TVs over in the thousands when they appear.

I think they are not far off the 15 minutes of fame brigade.

A few like Ramsey (travel and other), Oliver, Boardain (travel) I like to watch.

Shows like Masterchef are nothing but a short pause between flicking through the channels. You watch it if there is nothing else on AND you are zombieing out on the sofa. Why would you get hooked on a tired old formula with al the netflix, amazon etc. programmes to watch.

It is probably why they have hateful chefs and judges and twats who use floral language for poaching an egg. To keep the audience onside.

What about Masterchef in the Big Brother House with a singing and dancing talent element... Could call it FXXX right Off out of my kitchen.

I have a 15 year old stepson just like that. Believes towels hang on the floor, clothes beside the washing basket (drives his mother mad that one) and would rather drop everything around the bin rather than in. His piece de la resistance` is to regularly leave a turd half flushed in the bog on the back of stinking out the downstairs hallway. Dirty little scroat but he is quite good at cleaning cars so may loan him to the Eastern European car wash in Upwell when this is all over.

"perf with surf"

When society starts celebrating idiocy as an endearing attribute, we're putting ourselves on a dangerous downward spiral. Are we being encouraged to ridicule the unintelligent or is a lack of basic articulacy being promoted as something to aspire to?

I like this advert. She's sexy, she's very much part of the ITV zeitgeist, and it takes a couple of viewings to understand what's going on so it's challenging. It's a little bit surreal, it reminds me of one of them Salvador Dali films from the 20s and 30s. You can say it encourages affected stupidity, but it also subverts it.

It's my second favourite after the "I'm not going to stop a little bit of wee being me" advert.

I didn't have a clue what she was saying until I saw it written down at the end of the advert. Both she and her dad need to be erased from history.

When the youngest Mineagle was a teenager, Mrs KM used to put his clean folded clothes on the bed. Because he could not be arsed to put them away he'd put them straight back in the washing basket. Even now he could open an under pants shop , he runs out of clean ones and goes out and buys more (and they aint the cheap ones) . Last time his mother did washing for him , she's a soft touch , I hung it out. There were 26 pairs of pants. I nicked 4 pairs ,and he never noticed. If it were today you would think he was panic buying under wear.

You made me realise that I had no idea that ad was for NatWest :p

I also like that ad! The look on her face when her dad asks for the coin back is great.

A tip:

When adverts start, pause live TV (even Freeview boxes do this), then a few minutes later, resume in real time. Works a treat :p

When society starts celebrating idiocy as an endearing attribute, we're putting ourselves on a dangerous downward spiral. Are we being encouraged to ridicule the unintelligent or is a lack of basic articulacy being promoted as something to aspire to?

The ONLY advert that I find myself moving toward the telly to punch it.:veryangry:veryangry

One of the few decent ads.

Two more tips...

1) Record everything. No more adverts
2) Or just start watching 15 minutes after it started

The fast forward button is your friend in both scenarios

A good programme, unlike the one where the dippy bint scavenges round rubbish tips and takes 'junk' to her cronies who spend hundreds of pounds revamping it (cue the music) into some thing way out they then claim to have sold for a profit.

Money For Nothing? Anything but. Large-scale misrepresentation in my book.

Jay Blades, of Repair Shop fame, was originally one of those blokes who recycled the ‘junk’ into something else.

"Salvage Hunters - The Restorers" on Quest/DPlay is also worth mentioning

Agreed. Awful programme.

Thanks, I didn't realise that. Clearly a talented guy, but Repair Shop is a much more genuine programme, imho.

Those little shits that huff those small silver canisters and leave them all over the floor.

I've watched a few and need to put this on series link.

Talking of restoration shows, it really annoys me why they are always on a time restraint. Is it to add drama?

As for house restoration shows, I hate the way they pick numbers out the air to renovate the kitchens and bathrooms... $7,000 for the kitchen, $3,000 for the bathroom... yeah right! My kitchen reno cost $30,000 and bathroom $10,000 and they are not big or fancy. Very unrealistic cost and time frames used.

(Substitute dollars to pounds above - I'm sure it's the same in the UK)

Things that annoy you
 
Daughter dropped her iPhone down the toilet. Totally dead. Bought her a used iPhone 8 from eBay in excellent condition. Cost me £200!!

2 days later she drops it and smashes the home button. :(

Conspiracy theorists are pissing me off even more than usual, especially from those who think they're on the left or alternative. Don't they know this shit comes from alt right sites in the US and loads can be traced to the kremlin. It just diverts people away from putting their governments under pressure on real issues.

A lot of this garbage has also resulted in problems for the labour party with antisemitism, as some of it trys to blame jews, new world order, the rothschilds etc etc etc . i think loads of the complaints came from members sharing this shite on their fb pages.

Captain Tom Moore, what a hero. Raises nearly 20m quid for NHS charities, legend.

Then goes and spoils it all by releasing a duet of ‘you’ll never walk alone’ with that absolute weapon Michael Ball.
