View Full Version : The Gordon Ramsey "Fuckometer"

Out of desperation me and the gf watched his show last night - to make it a bit more interesting we had a bet on how many times he would say the word "fuck" - final count was 48. Over about the same number of air time minutes.

I thought the 1st seriies was OK and this one isnt that bad but it's pretty obvious that the producer has told him to up the "fuck quotient" to try and make him look "passionate" or something.

Seems a bit pointless to me - you never saw Sir John Harvey-Jones swearing at company directors he was trying to help out.

He's an ex-footballer, seems to be part of football culture that they all swear their heads off all the time.

Rodgers

Yeah - I'm not "shocked" by it. Just puzzled that they seem to think it's necessary - he's so obviously increased the swearing since last time.

Funko

It's his gimmick.

Rodgers
08-06-2005, 09:30:24
Well, he's overusing it.

Funko

Fuck.

I'm just imagining Rooney effing and blinding his way through a reality TV show called 'Prostitute Nightmares' when he hangs his boots up...:D

I saw this program on the bbc last night where two lowerclass parents got profesionall help in keeping their twin boys of 15 in check. The number of times those kids said 'fuck off' to their parents was disturbing.

Ok, reading back it's not as funny as I thought, I did make it seem too much like a statement of fact than an ironic aside. :o

I remember back in school I had to write a story for English. My mum read it and pointed out that, although she was sure it was a pretty good story, it'd help if I wrote it all down and didn't assume the reader would know the vital bits of information that I knew about the story and characters but were only in my head. Which was a very good point. I still do that all the time.

K_G is quick to rile though isn't he. :)

The additional bit of information for this story is that some time soon after the Rooney swearing incident I was on the way back from a rehearsal and AK had Talk Sport on in his car.

They were talking about footballers swearing and some teacher who had said that football should be on after the watershed because of the swearing. Anyway the consensus from the pundits in the studio was that there's nothing you can do to stop footballers swearing because it's 'part of football culture'. Which I found hillarious. There was no question in their minds that there was any way footballers wouldn't swear so they were talking about delays in broadcasting games and various other madcap schemes.

Then they got the head of the headteachers association in and she said that footballers were good role models in general, wanted kids to get fit etc. and that the argument was basically pointless and suggested that the teacher who'd said the watershed thing was probably just after publicity.

Anyway...

This has lodged in my brain the concept that certain people (in this case ex footballers) think that footballers are so stupid/preconditioned that there is nothing you can do that will stop them from swearing.

Which I think is funny.

So someone construct a humourous one line aside that conveys that for me please?

If you watch any more of that sort of thing you'll bound to eventually see 6 yrs olds calling their mothers a cunt

:rolleyes:

He should spit too. Then occasionally fall over clutching something and crying like a baby.

@ rodgers: I'm not sure about what you're saying there? I shouldn't watch that? Or I'll get used to kids calling their parents bad names?

Funko
08-06-2005, 11:29:57
I think he meant - if you watch more of that kind of thing you'd see much worse.

Maybe he could also make misguided comments about how black chefs dont put as much effort into cooking as white ones.

Perhaps Ramsey is hoping to make a sequel to 'The Commitments' where his vast experience with the poetics of fucketry will serve him in good stead.

Bizarrely enough, it takes a happy episode for his fuck count to go through the roof.

I'd shit my pants laughing if I ever heard Andy Rooney drop the F-bomb in one of his editorials.

Rodgers

Maybe he is like a freakish Pinnoccio variant - every time he says fuck he gets a hard on.

I'm definitely so stupid there's nothing you can do to make me stop swearing.

I also can't seem to stop farting, but that's a different issue for the people at work.

Can you fart swear words? That'd be cool.

Haha, apparently he's actually had to halve his "fuck quota" for this series, or so I was reading in one of the weekend papers. I watched it last night, and though he was quite restrained be his usual standards.

I think Rodgers has really upped his Fuck quotient for this series of posts.

Ramsey's favourite song:

"Well you think you're hot shit I heard
Well Honey you ain't nothing but a cold turd
If you don't wanna fuck me baby
Well baby fuck off"

Fuck Off
