shit I missed it. :/ It'll probably be repeated..

I can't believe Catherine Tate "Am I bovvered?" got 2nd place. xD; that's shit.

But Brucie getting number one was quite good.

I watched some of that. Apparently it's the last countdown show Channel 4 are doing... thank fuck.

And maybe after this people will realise it is SUIT YOU without the bloody 'S'. A little bit of a pet hate of mine.. Even the review in the papers yesterday had 'suits you' in there :(

Ah, some great ones here!

"Suits you sir" is one of the favourite phrases in my office. Usually uttered with a twitchy nose. :D

' ...&... why not?'

Anyone remember whose catchphrase was ' ...&... why not?'. very dry, possibly a Scot?
