    Lee Mack's silliness is an intentional schtick - his immediate play on situations and ingenious building on improvised moments is honestly some of the most impressive comedy around. He takes nothing seriously, least of all himself and that is the best thing about him.

      Took me ages to figure it out but the solution is:

      350 - 2/2 = 349

    How can you not like Lee Mack. One of the most underrated comedians on this Island and its a shame we don't see more of him doing stand up on TV. Getting sick of seeing Mickey Flannigan pretending to be working class ( I was in his class at school ) on the box.

    • tawnyowl

      DarkParagon I think the point was that he is 'pretending to be working class', but they know he isn’t particularly (having gone to school with him).

    • DarkParagon
      DarkParagon 12 days ago +2

      Was he particularly cruel and/or a bully at school? If not then his persona as a comedian shouldn't bother you.
      Also if he wasn't a bully and/or cruel then your comment is.
      Edit: Not trying to presume but I never judged people from my school for their success, unless they were the type of bully loser who deserved to fail and flip burgers.

    Between Lee's 9 letter word and Sean's carrot in a box, Jon's a sore loser.

    • Paul Vander
      Paul Vander 11 days ago

      I think there’s a difference between being upset about losing and being angry and not accepting the fact that you lose. The latter being a sore loser. If you lose a game, even if it’s not super competitive, it’s natural to get upset if you lose or even angry if it’s towards yourself.
      But if you get angry at the opposition and start complaining about how it’s not fair that you lost or making a bunch of ridiculous excuses, then you’re a sore loser.
      And let’s not forget. This is all Jon has.

    • Arvind
      Arvind 11 days ago +10

      +Eric Burkheimer It's a joke. He's a comedian, it's an act. They know there are no real stakes in the game, so they pretend in order to entertain the audience. Easy concept really.

    • TiCandy
      TiCandy 11 days ago +1

      +Eric Burkheimer that seems... unhealthy, not to be competetive of anything at all. I dont think The definition of sore loser, is being upset. If anything it is being upset beyond reason. But sports teams often cry when losing the world series for instance crying is being upset, and they're not being sore losers imo.. a sore loser gets angry, in my book.
      Upset can mean sad or disturbed as well, so I wouldn't use that word to define a sore loser.

    • Eric Burkheimer
      Eric Burkheimer 12 days ago

      +Rex Stetson but getting upset for losing... Isn't that the definition of a sore loser? And remember that episode when Jon wasn't there and it was Sean's team vs. Joe Wilkinson and someone else? It looked like Sean was going to sail on through to a win... Then Joe got the conundrum. Sean didn't behave like that (probably because he's use to losing, or he just doesn't give a shit). I myself try not to get competitive about anything... Coz I used to be a sore loser.

    • Rex Stetson
      Rex Stetson 12 days ago +8

      Carrot in a box was brilliant!!! I wish I could erase it from my memory, just so I could enjoy it for the first time again. I don't think Jon is a sore loser. It does seem like he takes the game more seriously though. And I'm not certain, but I think part of why he was so bothered by STEADINGS, was because he had a seven or eight letter word himself, and probably assumed he was going to win.
