77 people were injured*. Ah ah ah, funny, not.

 

 

 

*Although according to the Mail, it was only 42. Go figure. :razz:

 

Good Lord, you have certainly woken up with a bee in your bonnet! Keep off the gin, it doesn't agree with you.

 

It is hilarious, I love it. People falling over has been a comedy staple since the dawn of time which is why a show like You've Been Framed has run for 25 years or so.

 

But then some of us prefer Stephen Fry.

I don't drink. :rolleyes:

 

And no bee in my bonnet at all, I dislike people making fun of other people's misery! If no-one had been hurt, then it might amuse me at a basic level, then again I stopped laughing at people slipping on banana skins since I was about 10. But when i heard it on the news the other day, and we're talking of people sustaining things like knee injuries, which can handicap someone for a very long time if not for life, then it loses any appeal whatsoever.

 

Incidentally, I like Stephen Fry more for his amazing intelligence and erudition and sensitivity than for his comic material (QI excepted, which contains all of the above, and Blackadder which as has been mentioned isn't written by him).

I have never seen the fun in Youve been framed to be honest, some people have awful accidents and we are supposed to laugh, others are humiliated and agin someone films it and get £250 at the expense of the victim. Cheap telly

I found it shocking. If the impacts might have been wadds of tissue I may have found it amuzing, but I doubt having chairs and tables etc coming at you from both sides would be funny. I can imagine some very serious injuries being sustained. I always laugh at things that I'd laugh at if it was me it was happening to. As a very (and I mean very) daft and accident prone pup this gives me quite a lot of scope, but I doubt I'd be laughing if I was at the centre of this. We do however all have different senses of humour, and what I find funny others obviously may not.

I want to live in a world where chickens are free to cross the road without their intentions being questioned. :razz:
