ASA Declare ‘Feck’ Is Not Swearing

Posted: 12 Dec 2008 08:58 AM CST


Calling out ‘feck off, bees’ isn’t a curse.

IT’S OK to use the word “feck” in conversation and on TV - thanks to TV Show,  Father Ted.

Watchdogs, the The Advertising Standards Authority, have come to the decision it is not a swearword after complaints about its use on a poster for Magners cider.

The ASA received a complaint after a Magners advert showed an orchard keeper saying: “Feck off bees.”  The Irish firm insisted he was issuing “a mild rebuff” - and not cursing at all.

The cider producers claimed the use of the word would not offend adults but importantly, was not unsuitable to be seen by children either.

So in their words, “Feck off” and check out our great new competition sponsored by Magners, win a crate of cider for your office.

Chubby Brown Stand-up Show Lasted 4 mins

Posted: 12 Dec 2008 07:51 AM CST

Roy “Chubby” Brown only managed to last four minutes this week during a gig in Glasgow

Just four minutes after starting the show, “Chubby” Brown cracked a sick Mumbai massacre joke.  The crowds began to hackle him and jeer, this infuriated Brown who promtly told the croud to “f*@k off” and turned and walked out.  After 15 minutes the tannoy announced the show was over.

The audience were left fuming, with some demanding their money back and a ban placed on Brown ever returning, which would be great news.

Were you at the show?  Leave a comment.

Cheltenham Gets Green Light

Posted: 12 Dec 2008 03:56 AM CST

Good news from Cheltenham as their meeting gets to go ahead following an early morning inspection – although the cross-country race is still in the balance.

It's short and sweet today as I'm on baby-sitting patrol, but there are two bets I'm having on Friday at the aforementioned Gloucester venue.
Pennek (12.45) ran really well on his reappearance at Cheltenham last month when staying on nicely over 2m5f. The form of that event is solid and the manner in which he went up the hill that day suggests this three mile trip will suit. His trainer Alan King is also in corking form.
Confidence is high with this wager.

The aptly-named Gloucester (3.05) can make it third time lucky at this venue after two acceptable efforts the last twice.
T
he first of those in October saw him chase home Dee Ee Williams in one of the hottest maiden hurdles of the season, before being brought down on a return visit last month. He was moving into contention that day when hampered two furlongs from home and can make amends today.

Tune in tomorrow when I'll be going for an amazing sixth consecutive winning Saturday following Lapina's profit making victory last week.

70K a week not enough for Lucas Neill

Posted: 11 Dec 2008 10:37 PM CST

If Lucas Neill was accused of being a greedy mercenary when he turned down 40k a week to join Liverpool so that he could go to West Ham on 70k a week, then what is he for now demanding an increase on that 70k a week just to stay at Upton Park?

He’s 30, the Hammers are facing serious fines over the Mascherano affair and there is the small issue of a slightly weak global economy. So we only pray that this is all an act to engineer a move to a better club, because that would at least be an act of greed rather than delusion.
