Never analyse humour – it takes the heart from the soul.
Still, these two clips from Friday night’s episode of the Armstrong & Miller show are ingenious, provocative AND funny. Incongruous juxtaposition is the key – yanking modern (sometimes ‘colourful’) street-speak out of context and injecting it into the mindset of Battle of Britain fighter pilots. It exposes our self-obsessed and litigious age for what it is – and tentatively suggests that modern generations lack the nerve to make the same sacrifices.
Yellow Spitfire, anyone…?
