This is the vote that really shows we are a nation of doomed, morons

Forget the fact that the ‘majority’ voted to leave the EU without a single glimmer of a plan from our politicians, that’s not the vote that shows we are on a downward spiral. It has been announced that people (actual ‘real’ people with eyes, mouths and, presumably, brains) have voted Mrs Brown’s Boys as the greatest sitcom of the 21st Century. Let that settle in for a moment. A show which is the televisual equivalent of that comedy night in back street pub in Stoke run by a bloke called ‘fat Barry’ who is always the headline act and only tells jokes about that boil on his balls and his mother-in-law, is the public’s favourite sitcom of this century. In 2016, a comedy that gets its ‘laughs’ (I mean does anyone laugh?) from the fact that there’s a man dressed as woman (tee he), and bodily functions "happen" (ha ha), and, oh, isn’t the Irish accent hilarious, has been voted what the general public want from ‘quality’ comedy. If that’s not a damning indictment of our education system I don’t know what is! Babies laugh at fart noises. I have nothing against babies but let’s face it, they haven’t worked out basic things like walking, feeding themselves and not shitting everywhere, so it might not be a great idea to base how we measure quality on what they do.
