  1. Realized South Park has tipped its hat for this sketch; the father was a dancer and a musical person who got mad at his son who wanted to play basketball instead of dancing đŸ˜€

  2. THIS REALLY WAS one of the best acted sketches, period. You can see that all 3 players really could play those parts for serious if they chose to. The innocence and hurt in Idle's face. The adherence to form and motivation in Chapman. The devotion to being a good mother in Jones. This sketch could have been simultaneously the most ridiculous and best reason for a 4 part mini-series ever to come down the pike …or whatever the kids are all coming down these days. But seriously, it was the very good acting, or demonstrated the guarantee of it. . -DW

  3. A brilliant inversion of the 50s 'kitchen-sink' trope of the Northern family; rough-dad miner and sensitive-literary son who moves to London.

  4. This was one of the easier sketches to write. It's a basic flip the script concept that wrote itself. This took longer to type than it did to conceive.

  5. What do those two know of waking up at the crack of dawn, cleaning a GAP store all morning, heading back home, then leaving again to go to community college, do backbracking homework from 11:00 to 4:00, then go to your College club from 4 to 6? THAT'S a full days work and don't you forget it!

  6. I had this exact same fight on a kid in my advanced prep-school…. he claimed that science created atomic bombs, and I said it was culture– at which point he got indignant.

  7. There's nothing worse than those old geezers clinging to their books and living in their heads through literacy. This New Age has left behind that old-fashioned erudite fascination with science and knowledge and embraced the vibrant primitivism of naked savages and their hyperviolent authenticity of pillage and rapine. That old fashioned view of a bright future of Space Travel and Technology is why the older folks are backing Trump. They just cannot appreciate the New Age of Witchcraft and Sorcery that Hillary and Witch Doctor Obamer represent. None of that stable economy and law and order from them. Just the Fabulous World of Slavery and the exciting joi de vive of monkey viruses.
