Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

Will ask my English friend about it. If it is funny for British in general.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

I don't think everybody in Britain would find it funny (I can think of a couple whom I know wouldn't!). 

I started to type something to explain what I found funny about it, but I've realised I'm rubbish at explaining that sort of thing!

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

So it not only depends on the native speaking fact?

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

No, it's partly Amanda and Simon...that's how they are..
I don't think Martin is much different..

Right, it's like explaining jokes. You cannot explain jokes. Well, you can, but it's not that funny anymore.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

Yes, it's either your humour or it isn't...
It's no big deal.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

Right, so it isn't only a German vs. British thing.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

Well allegedly there are particular national humours...but I actually think humour can be a very personal thing.
It may be worth remembering in these cases, this isn't professional comedians giving a performance.
It's close friends having a laugh.
We are just fortunate to witness it.
Obviously people are free not to follow these individuals on Twitter.

The problem I am having is that I spend sooo much time explaining my pupils how there is no privacy on twitter etc.

Someone who posts a tweet does so because they want to be read publicly. Therefore, to me they are not friends having a laugh, they are actors working to improve their media presence by using a famous actor's name. If they wanted to have a laugh in private they could have done so via different social networks that allow privacy.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

But I don't feel they were saying anything they needed to be private about.
I just don't see this as being the same as teaching children about internet safety.
How were Amanda and Simon putting themselves at risk?

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

Maybe they put others at risk who naively think they can do the same and then can't find a place for vocational education or loose it or the like. Amanda and Simon have a solidified career already.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

I personally think that's a tad unfair and possibly unrealistic.
They are actors.
They are not counsellors, social workers or teachers.
Child protection is the responsibility of us all..
I would like to think we could all be good role models.
I couldn't see me engaging in  banter like this.
But then I don't have one of my best pals(of the opposite sex) living next door to me.
Maybe because they are celebs they are more likely to hold such a convo in public.
But this one doesn't particularly  bother me.
I have mentioned the times I've had issues with Amanda...this isn't one of them.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

I'm glad that at least Benedict is aware he is also a kind of role model to younger people.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

Well he's a little more high profile than either of these two...
Amanda generally seems very nice with fans.
Simon is with his fans on Twitter, actually.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

I´don´t understand the humor in the "discussion" between Amanda and Simon as well, but I think it is a personel Problem with me and british humor or/and language.
I grant them both their fun, but why must they do it in public? So I agree to Schmiezi, they really could find a better place for their private interacting.
But I also agree to besleybean, I must not follow if I don´t want to.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

And my friend, she is English, agrees to my opinion. So it is a matter of personal taste and not a cultural thing.
Having a laugh of this kind in public ... not necessary.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

Do you do Twitter?
Because that's what people do.
Just don't follow them if you don't want to see it...you wouldn't have seen it if you hadn't come on this thread,
A bit of perspective.
They're not child molesters, rapists or muderers...they're just 2 mates having a laugh.
If you don't like it, fine, don't read it.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

gently, thanks for the info. I didn't actually know whether I should be a bit worried about the British as some people claimed it to be a common British phenomenon, but it seems I don't have to at all.
Just a matter of taste, just like elsewhere.

Re: Amanda and Simon Pegg Twitter Conversation about Benedict

I don't speak like that on Twitter and I don't necessarily think it's big or clever...but I can take it or leave it.

So it's common to use words like f... and c... etc. on Twitter concerning friends? Yeah, didn't know that.
And who said anything about rapists or similar???
And same advice to you, bb. To avoid threads which contain something you don't want to read ...
