Lol, Noel and Russell just built battlements out of a banana on Big Fat Quiz of the Year.
1) The Winter Olympics event otherwise known as 'tea tray race', to see who can go fastest down a track head first on a toboggan.
2) Russel Brand and Noel Fielding's goth detective, made up after a question about the Olympic event on 'Big Fat Quiz of the Year' 2006. Goth Detectives was used as their quiz team name on Big Fat Quiz 2007.
1) Competing in bob skeleton? Are you suicidal?
2) I wanna see them make a series of Bob Skeleton's adventures!
TV show that attempts to tackle an issue, but is geared up more to entertain than to make a difference.
Originally coined by Screen Wipe's Charlie Brooker.
Did you see that issuetainment last night, where they made those fat kids do sports? They weren't trying to help them, just make them look silly on TV.
"The only solution is to find a new threat, which brings us to 'Ian Wright's Unfit Kids' (C4), a weekly 'issuetainment' programme in which the former footballer and renowned enemy of grammar forces a bunch of overweight youngsters to take part in some extracurricular PE." - Charlie Brooker, Screen Burn (9/16/2006)
