“Nothing seems quite as doomed as the telly itself. Why bother tuning in to watch stuff when you can download it from a torrent site or see it on Youtube? That’s what the youth of today do. To this modern little sod, the television is as outdated a piece of technology as a mangle. Why does she need it to sit in the corner of the room barking at her anyway, she’s got parents to do that. Haven’t ya, you little lip ring wearing cow. Modern fucker. You make me want to throw up. Ugh, you and your youth. I hope you enjoy it. It’ll all go wrong, mark my words, it always does. Enjoy your Youtube while it lasts, ya cunt.”
