Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

btw., who are Alexei Sayle and Jeff Foxworthy?

Alexei Sayle is a icon in the British left wing alternative comedy scene. Superb political satire. (He's a Marxist as far as I know).

In fact, it was a book on the rise of the alternative comedy scene in the UK which I read through the night without stopping at about aged 14, that made me realise the that I was living in a white, middle class, Daily Mail reading version of hell.  It completely opened my eyes to politics and I've never looked back.

I don't know who Jeff Foxworthy is though.

Thanks, guess his stuff has not been translated and shown German, Swiss or Austrian TV, at least not when I still had a tv. Maybe now with Sky Channel and BBC it would be possible see him here too - but now I do not have a tv anymore.

Jeff Foxworthy is an Amurkan funny man, but I don't know much more: see Wikipedia, as usual...

Rather like that rag myself.

Alexei Sayle: Brilliant British "Marxist comedian".  Was on the classic TV show "The Young Ones."

Jeff Foxworthy: Idiot Red State "redneck comedian".  Famous for dumb "You might be a redneck if..." jokes.

Foxworty's humor is getting very tiresome. I never watched him much.
