Incessant bollocks from the Beeb’s Sochi crew

Posted by @ 3:59 pm on Sunday 16th February, 2014.

Is anybody else fed up wi' the interminable spoutin' o' "really really" an' "very very" by the Beeb's presenters, commentators an' pundits?

Many instances o' "very unique" havnae gone unnoticed either.

The worst one so far, IMHO, be "really really very very good indeed".

It's all t'o much fer anyone who cares about the English language, wi' a chest full o' booty. I fear I'll be watchin' the rest o' the spectacle wi' the sound muted.

Their maths leaves a lot t' be desired, too, wi' a chest full o' booty. Online, we're told that the GB Men's Curlin' Team needs t' beat China in order t' advance into the semis...



yet the results an' fixtures table paints a very different picture:



Sorry, Beeb, ye get zero marks fer technical merit.

    Hoist wi' me own petard!

    In me defence, I'd like t' point out that it were bein' only one bollock, the one that I found lyin' around in the Albert Hall.

    I'll now go serve me sentence in the goat-shed while tryin' t' rid meself o' the infection.

    @BG! - I always have a supply o' petards close at hand fer personal use. Abandon the goat-shed notion an' watch the Olympics instead!

    Wilco, but wi' the sound off. I'm nae sure that I want t' be listenin' when they take the next step an' start usin' words like "doubleplusgood".
