This is more of a childhood Grrrr than a recent one. 

When you were in a electronics shop picking out an Atari game for your birthday.  You study the alluring, action packed artwork such as this one.

And then you rush home and soon find this on your TV screen.

Grrr at fantasy portion sizes in TV ads!

I'm sure it's much healthier for you, but who (in the whole world!) eats Fish & Eight Chips?

it's the same at stately homes or tourist attractions. All sandwiches are without exception always £4:00, even if they're the most basic model cheese and ham.

Perhaps. But they are STATELY cheese and ham, redolent with the weight of history and tradition. 

Following the Peasant Revolt of 1673, most authorities allow that Branston Pickle is permissible !

So shut up and eat your sandwich, Prole ! :D

The same theme also applies to Hospitals and their tiny branches of WHSmith.

Grrr at Enoch Powell!

On the 50th anniversary of his 'Rivers of Blood' speech, we have to suffer (all over the UK News) a bunch of curmudgeonly old YamYams, sucking pork scratchings to death in their Working Men's Clubs, while indecipherably mumbling outdated and racist views into their Banks's Mild.

Neighbors (on paper only) whose teenage kids park their cars anywhere they like with no respect for others who normally park in the same spot.

Same kids friends who also visit your road and do the same.

Right then, where is my crowbar...GRRRRR

Have I done a BBC grrrr recently? Most likely... I'll do another one anyway!

Arsène Wenger quitting at the end of the season as the top story on the main news!?

I'm a football fan, but seriously... top story? Main news? Get some perspective on the world BBC! :rolleyes:

Ohh... and last week... BREAKING NEWS running across the bottom of the screen on the good old Beeb:

Miami cheerleader 'bullied for being a virgin', complaint claims

Seriously? BREAKING NEWS!?

I had to stop eating my Weetabix, such was the shock at this newsworthy global revelation!

:no:

Kudos! @LV-426


What has peed me off for decades is the idea that we need a sports headline in every news bulletin. I know we are supposed to be a 'sporty nation' here in the UK, but are we the only ones? Of course not!


Dear BBC and Sky,
By all means revel in an impressive sporty achievement, but feature it as part of a 15-minute Sports section on the News Channel, not on the One, Six, or Ten O'clock News on the mainstream channels.

Unless someone runs a 4-minute marathon (or something equally improbable) sport is not news.  Please..... Do what CNN do (BTW, it's the only thing you haven't copied off them) and have a dedicated sports roundup on your news channel only.

In Ireland?!?!? People say the US has huge portions! I've never seen anything like the food we were served there. It would have been three meals for me.
