  1. One George was a comedy character the other was a tragedy.
    who got his strange stance from falling of the roof when
    he attempted to fix the section which covered his friends
    and nobody else But he overreached and fell off...

    1. LOL And there was me thinking his publicly funded "image consultant" was responsible. But that's a much more reasonable explanation!

  2. His Bio

    "Charmless Man"



    I met him in a crowded room
    Where people go to drink away their gloom
    He sat me down and so began
    The story of a charmless man
    Educated the expensive way
    He knows his claret from a beaujolais
    I think he'd like to have been Ronnie Kray
    But then nature didn't make him that way

    He thinks his educated airs those family shares
    Will protect him, that you will respect him
    He moves in circles of friends who just pretend that they like him
    He does the same to them and when you put it all together
    There's the model of a charmless man

    He knows the swingers and their cavalry
    Says he can get in anywhere for free
    I began to go a little cross eyed
    And from this charmless man I just had to hide

    He talks at speed he gets nose bleeds
    He doesn't see his days are tumbling down upon him
    Yet he tries so hard to please he's just so keen for you to listen
    But no-one is listening and when you put it all together
    There's the model of a charmless man

    I must admit to understanding where dear George comes from I
    myself am the product of a British elitism graduating with a 1st
    in moronics from the advanced university for Unionist trolls...

    1. We know, Niko. You got a doctorate in it!

    2. Niko, you should be a professor at the UUT, with tenure.
      In comparison to your good self, Deano is a Jim Murphyesque character, and has thus far failed to graduate in trolling.

  5. is the one on the left, one of those flag waving nationalists I keep hearing about? They are right, they do look unhinged ;-)

    1. So unhinged he looks like he's about to become totally detached and fall over!!

      I like Niko's description in the first comment, on how they came by that stance.

  8. He look like he had 14 pints of Guinness last night, and isn't sure if it is only a fart.

    1. Apparently, that is known as "sharting".

    2. I once 'sharted' on holiday in Corfu. Luckily it happened about 50 yards from the sea, and a quick sprint into the med rectified the situation. I was only wearing a pair of shorts at the time, and an onlooker would only have thought i had extremely tanned legs. :-)

  9. If I remember that episode correctly, a couple of the characters daren't mention the "Scottish Play".
    The character on the left might have the same aversion.

    1. LOL. He's certainly not a fan of Scotland.

      Don't mention John Swinney!

    1. Well he certainly doesn't follow through with his budgets. More U-turns than a circular pipe!

  12. Niko and his fellow-travellers have ensured that the 'charmless man' will be with us for the foreseeable future.

    1. Well... there are various possibilities. Brexit would surely see him gone... or too much laughing and joking partying and coking...

  13. The post genuinely made me smile. I wonder what George would look like in that wig?
