Stuff that you don't like it when people say it because it explains the thing that you already knew about

I’d recommend it. You know when people say “it’s like a real life Alan Partridge!” and you’re like “yeah ok, whatever” but this is an actual late-night radio phone in show that is absurdly Partridge-like and equally as amusing IMO.

I’ve heard that about the Tony Blackburn auto biography and am tempted to read it.

I can well imagine this being the case for Tony Blackburn. I have to stress how much I think Nick Abbot would scratch that itch more however.

What about when a joke is Quite Funny on a situational comedy (sitcom) on the television (TV) and is confirmed by a laughing track on said TV sitcom? It reaffirms my excellent sense of humour, I find.

Often what people attribute to “laughing track” is actually “people in real life laughing as part of a studio audience” as such I find it difficult to get too bothered about them beyond admiring the specific acting talent of “staying in the bit” until the laughter dies down.

I got rebuked on Facebook for saying that I loved the smell of petrichor, because petrichor is actually the smell given off by the ground as rain falls on it after a long dry period.

I like the word “rebuked” but I’m sorry that you experienced it

People need to be told @anon5266188. If they didn’t, you wouldn’t have started a thread about it. I received my admonishment, and now I’ll never make the same mistake again, except perhaps when a discussion comes up about tautology.

I don’t think people need to be told about minor things like this really

I’m still not going to try it again.

Just tastes of salt, everyone likes salt

I don’t even put extra salt on my food. Except for chips, of course. With malt vinegar. Otherwise, no salt.

I never add salt into anything, chances are there will already be a fair amount of salt already in most things, because people like salt, hence my disbelief that so many people don’t like marmite

‘Tory bellend’


Next time just say “I love the smell of THE LIFE-BLOOD OF THE STONES” because that’s what petrichor means.


“England’s only world class player, Jesse Lingard”

honestly, you lot sometimes!

Nah, this thread is specific to phrases like Al Dente and Marmite. Hearing people explain things is always good.
