Baubles. I bought a shed load of them, but they don't come pre-stringed ffs. I can't tell you how tedious it is. It's my first time doing a tree - my mum said it looks like something Brucie would've had the contestants do on The Generation Game with a time limit. I thought it'd be a masterpiece, just had no idea how much time people invested in such things.

Its a "buying time" response.

Pointless. The endless segues and “bants” between the co-hosts winds me up.
And the jackpots are pony too.

So why watch it?

Shmoltzy (sp?) moving wallpaper.
Not worthy of cleaning Tipping Point's boots.

I think it’s alright, I like Richard Osman.

That and the Chase are the only quiz shows I’ll tolerate.

But yes,Osman is increasingly unfunny.

You’re actually advised to not eat their meat due to bioaccumulation.

As an aside, even foxes won’t eat cormorants.

Fat men can't draw apples

Steve Davis has just asked whether Mark Allen is ‘fit for purpose for the World Championships’

Pointless bloody things. Rock hard. You need a f*ckin chainsaw to cut them up.

I had an unpleasant experience in 1965 at Nursery School, York Road, Guildford. They were simpler times and meals were less exotic than today's offerings. At lunch, instead of mashed potato, we were given mashed swede. I thought the orangey dome of lukewarm veg looked a pleasant variation on the usual grey, lumpy spud but my taste buds weren't prepared for the over powering zing from the devil's favourite root vegetable.

Haven't touched one since. The vegetable, not the people.

I love swede. Mash it up with loads of butter and some white pepper, job done. Also the cooking juice is good for your gravy.

Carrot and swede mash is a thing of beauty

Loads of butter and S&P

I had a similar experience when an errant roasted parsnip got into my roast potatoes.

It does annoy me when some of the contestants on Pointless laugh in self piteous horror at the questions they’re being asked.

Some couples do this at the start of every single round. What did they expect on a quiz show, questions about their own life?

Fella on the table next to me in the works canteen slurping his tea. Noise coming from him:frown:

What's it coming to when a man can't enjoy his cuppa?
