Free The Paedos

There was a team at The Safari Lounge on Monday called “FREE THE PAEDOS”.

I was moderately outraged, but asked them what they meant, what this team name was all about.

They said “It’s a Peep Show reference”.

Thing is, I don’t watch Peep Show, or indeed any telly at all – I’m too busy for that shit.

Also, if you look at the viewing figures, nobody really watches Peep Show either.

It’s one of those critically-acclaimed things that hardly anyone watches.

Result: If you call yourself something like “Free The Paedos“, there’s a chance that some of the other people in the pub will think that you are being far more nasty than you really are.

Moral: if you’re going to do references, either make them widely understood or make them not about supporting sex criminals.

Meanwhile, I looked up the reference. It’s more or less amusing:

Team names of the week
The Findus one is so nostalgic

It’s team names which caught my eye during the month of May.

The standout weirdness is ‘SIBLINGS WITH BENEFITS‘.

They were at the Tolbooth one night.

Doesn’t that team name just give you the heebie jeebies?

The team were indeed a grown-up male persona and a grown-up female person. So you never know.

They were grinning, broadly. I couldn’t even stomach to ask them for the detail or the truth. Just in case it was real.
