I stole that BB8 guide - it said "you need it and it's free", so I took it and left the Heat magazine behind at the newsagents.

Then I mugged a pensioner, filmed 'im rolling around on the pavement, and posted it on YouTube. Then I went back to Eton.

What a bloody waste.

People knew where they stood. Sure times were hard but things were things and that was important.

People don't know who their bloody neighbours are.

We used to have a mangle.

You could put one foot in front of the other repeatedly to get to a location of your choice. These days you can't walk down the bloody street.

it's time for change

Surmounter, Monday, 25 August 2008 20:18 (7 years ago) Permalink

at least you had streets, in my day we just had caves, but we all looked out for each other

A knife. One times this kid can't remember his name brought a knife to school. We all of us just stared at it. Then we looked at the kid.

Nowadays...

Its a ruddy disgrace. You used to be able to borrow a cupful of sugar without getting a punch in the face.

These days, "texting" is passed off as genuine communication.

something must be done. real action. the politicians are too busy straightening bananas with the brussels elite. REAL ACTION.

I used to knew all the names of the boys at school but now when I walk past I don't know who any of them are. Society has literally been dissolved in a vat of acid

i remember when you would stop in the street, on your way to the market, and find yourself in immersed in hour-long conversations. now it's just an awkward smile, a pained nod.

A shiv in the guts.

Society has gone mad with its own sense of self importance, and taken a high jump from the nearest cliff. Now its corpse lies rotting in a ditch, having been stripped for clothes and parts by Eastern European tramps.

Local Garda, Monday, 25 August 2008 20:22 (7 years ago) Permalink

In my day there was no heart trouble but these days i suffer from heart disease, angina, and youths are literally breaking society apart with their bare hands

Parish Priest!, Monday, 25 August 2008 20:23 (7 years ago) Permalink

Society can regularly be seen flailing around the streets late at night, looking for another party.

30 years ago society was an altar boy with a side parting. It was a great time to be alive!

Local Garda, Monday, 25 August 2008 20:23 (7 years ago) Permalink

We would wake up in the morning. Later we would go to bed at night. I never heard anyone question it.

we used to make things in this country, now everybody's got his hand in the other guy's pocket. literally!

prices are rising, the celtic tiger has accidentally ingested the credit crunch. now society totters about like ronnie wood in high heels after a 3 day cocaine dinner.

when i was a child, the only homosexuals i knew were arabs, and we chased them out of town with elm branches. now, i wake up every day to see homosexuals on tv, the radio, sometimes even on my back patio, engaging in unspeakable acts.

max, Monday, 25 August 2008 20:27 (7 years ago) Permalink

you can't even be sure of your own sexuality anymore. society has become an endless freddie mercury sex tape, stuck in the broken video recorder that passes for real values nowadays.

times used to be you could spend an afternoon with a young lad and not have it questioned by the papers and the young lads mother

what is with all of the child rape nowadays? this used to be illegal, now it's practically demanded of you. it's literally on youtube and on the chat rooms every day.

if you'd told me a child was being abused 30 years ago, I wouldn't have believed you!

x-post you're right, LISTENING. people LISTENED. they LISTENED.

whatever happened to courting? cotillions? gowns? these days society's lost in a haze of match dot toms and katies, swimming in a sea of cars that swerve all over the road.

All this million channel cable TV and internet and your wireless phone from that disgusting bloke who is that older woman's toyboy in them adverts, when I was a lad we didn't even have TV. My old man used to put an empty cereal box on his head and pretend it was a TV set, and then read from the papers our chips were wrapped in.

when i was younger, there was no such thing as irony, and if there was, no decent person had ever heard of it. now--its irony in the shower, irony for breakfast, irony in your afternoon nap. irony has literally kidnapped everything good and decent and tied it to a chair and literally beaten it.

My sister I looked out for her. And my brother too. My father he was a good man.

What passes for entertainment now would literally kill a man from The Past. He would see entertainment, and then melt into a small pile of ash. Society has been fed to godless, homosexual sharks.

society isn't even in the gutter anymore since the hogs and spivs of the EU ruled our gutters illegal and took them away

the gutter is too good for them

Parish Priest!, Monday, 25 August 2008 20:34 (7 years ago) Permalink

I used to have to murder tramps so that I could steal their empty gin bottles to get the deposit back from the off license. Now when people stab up a tramp they don't even bother to nick his shoes to sell to the mad shoe collecting man down the street.

One time when I was four or five, I don't know, I saw a house burn down. It was our neighbors house. Point is he, him and his family, he was our NEIGHBOR.

There used to be white dog shit on the pavements, now it's brown, and I'll tell you why! The EU communists have taken away our white dog shit and replaced it with brown!

and now who would it be? it could literally be anyone. he might be burning a house down right now and laughing. laughing! he may as well be laughing at society itself.

i might as well laugh at society, join in with them! when good men burn down houses and laugh at society its time for a war

nowadays if angelina jolie is in the gutter, society gets in too. if she climbs out of the gutter, it stands up and dusts itself off. it used to be there were consistent ideas, about culture, art, thought. now we just dig our graves alongside the spectres of society's future, and leave the past to the likes of Rita Hayworth.

Surmounter, Monday, 25 August 2008 20:38 (7 years ago) Permalink

it used to be that a man like Mickey Rooney was a handsome darling to man and woman alike, now it's all eleven foot spaniards who spend all day riding an excercize machine, bulging testicles on every billboard, it's an affront to every woman who leaves her home.

don't worry, Alan Titchmarsh is here to save us

TITCHMARSH'S MANIFESTO FOR BRITAIN: CELEBRITY GARDENER PLEDGES TO RESTORE COMMON SENSE TO PARLIAMENT

1. Election campaigns to last one day - not five weeks.

2. Anyone who throws litter out of a car will spend a week working at the local tip.

3. Sell-by dates on food and antibacterial wipes will be abolished. Food lasts longer than you think and you need to build up your antibodies in the interests of not being a burden on the NHS.

4. Poldark will be screened every Sunday evening throughout the year

5. Wire coat-hangers will be banned

6. If you chop down a tree you plant another five to replace it.

7. All children will have lessons in nature and gardening from the ages of five through to 18.

8. Tweeting is to be outlawed and a charge of £100 a year levied on those who feel the need to go on Facebook.

One time I found a dead dog in the street. There was a boy, not much older than me, crying. I asked is this your dog. He just looked at me. Later we fought in the war together.
