Hands up

Go on, ‘fess up: as you’re settling down to watch a film and the continuity announcer warns that “The following film contains bad language and scenes of a sexual nature“, who cheers?

And if you had the chance to be a continuity announcer for the day, how would you introduce your favourite/most hated progammes?

    I most definitely cheer. Those little ‘warnings’ are really advertisments to lure you into watching.

    “And if you thought your own life was rubbish, at least it’s not as bad as this. Eastenders, after the break.”

    “And if you thought your own life was good, remember: you don’t live on a beach and you don’t make a living from sitting around chatting all day, sucker. Neighbours, right after the ads.”

    “Suicidal people and those with a tendency to fly into a murderous rampage at the sight of total and pure idiocy are advised to tune off now. Ladies and gentlemen, it’s Deal Or No Deal.”

    I don’t cheer, I am too busy reaching for the record button.

    Oh I cheer. Quite often, I also do a little dance.
