I agree when used " in context" The F word is fine...but hang on I have kids and that old bollocks about 9pm doesn't wash on Christmas Eve ...please come on.

This however dominated the script and seemed to be every line, as though struggling for comic effect.

I think suggesting The Irish use it all the time is a bit OTT, as it tends to intimate that as a race they are unable to string togther a coherent sentence so have no option but to throw in an expletive.

I know plenty Irish people whose swearing is no worse than the Brits.

Maybe its just society and an ultra low IQ which sinks lower every 10 years or so.

Maybe that is all the current generation can digest and compute!

Fawlty Towers, Blackadder (2,3,4) even Billy Connoly were ultra sharp.

Blackadder wasn't exactly without sin but could get away with it because it was brilliantly written.

MBB is of those programmes which somehow taps into a credibilty gap, somebody credible says its fresh, funny and then herd like masses have to appease each other on social media etc by suggesting same.....

Take the Fword out and rerun the script, see what I mean crap !
Wow, so now your saying that everyone who likes MBB must have a lower IQ than you?

I'm 24, I love Fawlty Towers, I love Allo,Allo, I love Only Fools and Horses etc..etc.. (the older comedies) but wait a minute, I also love Mrs Browns Boys #shockhorror

How old are your kids? MBB was on at like 10:15pm wasn't it? At that time you should know that anything goes for TV regarding content. OldBoy was on at 11:10pm last night on Christmas Day on Film4 yet I don't see you going about the content in that. (Great film, not bashing it).

It just seems that you don't like the show and are just constantly bashing it and looking down on people who do watch it and enjoy it. We get it, you don't like it, BBC aren't forcing you to watch it.

Eurostar raises the best point, it's not the whole cast that are swearing, just Agnes, it's part of the character.
