    So every now and again I’m on G&T cause I’ve made a really bad decision somewhere in my past, and occasionally I’m getting these quotes from “daughterfan13” who claims to be Rob Grant’s daughter.

    Literally the quote on my screen right now says, “I’m Rob Grant’s daugher and the comments you displayed on my father in the review “Rob Grant is a lazy fucking cunt” are thoroughly hurtful and immature.” Now, as the investigative journalist I claim to be, I looked up “Rob Grant is a lazy fucking cunt” only to come up empty-handed with said-quote.

    This isn’t the only thing I’m curious of, however, as another one calls former-G&Ter John Hoare a “whore” for whatever reason. So basically, can I get a detailed, in-depth explanation behind these historic quotations so I may get some sleep at night.

    A diamond necklace played the pawn
    Hand in hand some drummed along, oh
    To a handsome man and baton
    (Bygone, bygone)
    A blind class aristocracy
    Back through the opera glass you see
    The pit and the pendulum drawn
    (Bygone, bygone)
    Columnated ruins domino

    Canvass the town and brush the backdrop
    Are you sleeping?

    Hung velvet overtaken me
    Dim chandelier awaken me
    To a song dissolved in the dawn
    (Bygone, bygone)
    The music hall a costly bow
    The music all is lost for now
    To a muted trumpeter swan
    (Bygone, bygone)
    Columnated ruins domino
    Canvass the town and brush the backdrop
    Are you sleeping, Brother John?

    Dove nested towers the hour was
    Strike the street quicksilver moon
    Carriage across the fog
    Two-Step to lamp lights cellar tune
    The laughs come hard in Auld Lang Syne
    The glass was raised, the fired rose
    The fullness of the wine, the dim last toasting
    While at port adieu or die
    A choke of grief heart hardened, I
    Beyond belief, a broken man too tough to cry

    Surf’s Up, mm-mm, mm-mm, mm-mm
    Aboard a tidal wave
    Come about hard and join
    The young and often spring you gave
    I heard the word
    Wonderful thing
    A children’s song

    Child, child, child, child, child
    A child is the father of the man
    Child, child, child, child, child
    A child is the father of the man
    A children’s song
    Have you listened as they played
    Their song is love
    And the children know the way
    That’s why the child is the father to the man
    Child, child, child, child, child
    Child, child, child, child, child
    Na na na na na na na na
    Child, child, child, child, child
    That’s why the child is the father to the man
    Child, child, child, child, child

    Guess I deserved that for asking a legitimate question on G&T of all places

    Back in the mid 2000’s, when G&T was notably swearier, this article was posted: https://www.ganymede.tv/2005/05/rob-grant-is-a-lazy-fucking-cunt/

    Someone took issue with it in the comments.

    I didn’t actually check the link, but yeah, I suppose it must have been in a separate forum post or something.

    Yes, she found it a while later and commented elsewhere, if I recall correctly. The rebuke was fair. Back then we allowed the urge to do what we found funny to override any consideration for how we came across to anyone who wasn’t familiar with our ‘humour’, and certainly to anyone that we writing about. It’s all deeply regrettable, so I hope that’s answered your question so as we can leave it at that.

    It wasn’t mentioned in the dwarfcast was it.
    I think it was a fair jibe in keeping with the satire of Spitting Image, say.

    I always assumed that was someone taking the piss. I need to rethink everything now…. Is that actually Matt Damon that posts sometimes?

    just realised that Matt Damons characters in the Martian and Interstellar are directly inspired by Dwarf
