The people who voted Mrs Brown’s Boys as the best sitcom of last year are the same people who choose who runs the country, according to reports today.
The sitcom, which revolves around an old man dressed as a sweary old woman churning out jokes most suited to end-of-the-pier stand-up routines thirty years ago, has proven a ratings hit with those who can also vote in general elections, winning Sitcom of the Year at the National Television Awards last night.
Fan of the show Trevor Matthews told us, “The people have spoken, and much like we dragged you out of the EU, now you must all just sit there and watch Mrs Brown’s Boys with the rest of us.
“Suck it up buttercup, we won and you lost so wipe away those salty tears for Fleabag and get on with enjoying the best comedy on British television.
“Stop arguing, the votes are in and we won. Get over it.”
Voter Simon Williams told us, “This is utterly ridiculous. It seems increasingly clear to me that the ‘people’ simply cannot be trusted to make even the most rudimentary of decisions.
“Suggesting Mrs Brown’s Boys is the best sitcom of the last year would be like suggesting this government is the best government we could have had in the last year.
