The BBC is in turmoil today after it received a complaint about wasting licence payers’ money concerning the hit teatime show Pointless, hosted by Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman.
According to Alfie Bass of Tunbridge Wells, on average 30-35% of each show is filled up with 3 main phrases which keep being repeated over and over again: ‘very very well done’, ‘congratulations, that is excellent’ and ‘very very best of luck’.
“Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy the show” said Mr Bass, 73 “but on occasion, the constant repetition of these phrases throughout the show gets on my nerves. It’s got to the stage where my pet parrot Ollie keeps repeating them all night, which is affecting my sleep.”
“Congratulations to Mr Bass” said Alexander Armstrong “that is an excellent spot - very very well done.”
Richard Osman concurred: “Yes, very very well done Mr Bass and congratulations, that is excellent. We are sending you an honorary coveted Pointless trophy and wish you the very very best of luck.”
