Hateful Christmas Specials That Make Me Laugh

i'm not going to go into the classics.....i love them...and i own every version of The Christmas Carol i think ever made...ok, not the muppet version....but this week i saw on BBC America The (British) Office and the Blackadder's Christmas Carol had me rolling!

[Blackadder has just unwittingly slammed the door in the faces of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert]
Ebeneezer Blackadder: I am not at home to guests!
Prince Albert: I flatter myzelf ve are llather special guests, sir.
Ebeneezer Blackadder: Oh, of course, I must apologize! It isn't often that one recieves a Christmas visit from two such distinguished guests.
Prince Albert: Ah, zo you llecognize us at last!
Ebeneezer Blackadder: Yes! Unless I'm very much mistaken, you're the winner of the 'Round Britain Shortest Fattest Dumpiest Woman Competition. And for her to be accompanied by the winner of this year's Stupidest Accent Award is really quite overwhelming.

(sorry to any of our J├Ąger friends...ahem!) LOL
and why is it that i love Blackadder but HATE Mr. Bean???

The Office

esp. these lines:

Tuffy: (to Anne) Do you think we care as much about your baby as you do? Just because you let some useless tosser blow his beans up your muff. Well done, merry fucking Christmas.
(Anne runs off crying)
Tim: Beans.
Dawn: I don’t know what to say. Muff was the bit for me.
Tim: Beans and muff.

heh heh heh the spirit of the season..make fun of smug preggo people!

BlakOpal feels the same way about Mr. Bean (my own feelings are mixed). Then over the last couple days I popped in The Thin Blue Line (a comedy Atkinson starred in post-Bean). I think we're both converts now, I've got to start looking around for BlackAdder....

I'm rather the same. Mr. Bean makes me cringe. But I suppose my not-so-inner cynic finds Blackadder all too appealing.

That said, I can't stand The Office (either version).
