GUEST,Mr Red Morris: A Life With Bells On (film) (375* d) RE: Morris: A Life With Bells On (film) 31 Oct 09


The plebs I refer to are the likes of the panelists on the "News Quiz" (think "Have I got News for You" without pictures)

On a programme a few years back they started laughing just at the word Morris, not what followed. I am not exagerating. When I e-mailed them and pondered the situation, adding - 'are they not proud to be English?', they replied "None of us are English". AFAIK they were all British (or UK citizens at least). And all of them Uni graduates.
I don't ever see them laughing at the words "Irish Dance" or Scottish etc.

Now call me dismissive but "pleb" is the politest word for people who can laugh at a single word. It is not metaphore, it is supercilious.
