Simply Irresistible, Pt. 40

How I’ve gone through life not knowing about Little Britain I don’t know, but sometimes all it takes is a most unexpected and literal wakeup call to discover something new.

HBO recently began showing Little Britain USA, a fine and dandy import starring creators Matt Lucas and David Walliams, but one that’s missing a vital ingredient: Linda Flint, a university counselor who in order to help her students often needs to contact someone else at the university, someone called Martin.

When Linda phones up Martin – “Martin, it’s Linda…” – in front of the student, she describes them in rather offensive (and hilarious) ways.

See Linda help out Asian student Kenneth Laou.

See her help out friend of friends Joanna Harding. And little guy Paul Roberts.

See Little Britain or Little Britain USA and laugh.
