Pseudo bad language
15 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Unlike 'naffing' and 'frigging' which appear to have been made up by the writers to suggest more abusive language, the word 'pigging' was used in the north of England before the TV versions, and still is. My aunt is 78 and she still uses this word when she gets annoyed, and has done for as long as I can remember. Certainly well before the Dustbin Men hit our screens. I think we should remember that in the era when the programme was made our perceptions of what was funny were different, and looking back now at something from so long ago should be done with this in mind. Phoenix Nights and such similar shows should not be compared with stuff of yesteryear. It's a bit like comparing George Best and Wayne Rooney - different eras with different sets of values.
