Don't fauce it.
It's bad enough when you sneeze your guts out - but the way people look at you like you're doing it on purpose just to wind them up. In the words of George Bernard Shaw, f**k off.

He has only one character.

A great many actors have made very successful careers out of playing nobody but themselves.

Logically, an actor would have to struggle very hard to achieve a substantial fan base among the general public if they had no idea what sort of a character he was going to portray in his next film or TV appearance.

If asked to name an actor who varies his performance significantly from one part of the next, I'd immediately come up with Michael Sheen but then I'd have to think before coming up with a second example.

Yes I know but I still find the adverts bloody annoying. It's all so predictable.

spamming an advert for an American dentist on a British comedy site tells me that person is going places.

You're right John American sarcasm is very hard to detect, maybe we should get a second opinion on this one ?

I hate people who swear, split infinitives and put the adjective after the noun. I want them to f**king f**k off to pastures new.

While we are on grammar ,I don't like people saying "two times" instead of "twice".It's very popular these days and correct,I suppose but it sounds so childish.

It's a fair point but, if you caught your girlfriend with another bloke, would you accuse her of twice-ing you? Laughing out loud
