Bertie Wooster is furious.

As for "outcry" - i did not notice any "outcries", really. Boycott whatever you want, we will manage.

So basically it’s “Accept and support my perversion and raping of your children or I won’t drink your vodka”?

Do the perverts even realize how insane they sound?

Wow, another actor demonstrating their belief that “gayness” is obviously the problem most deserving of attention in the world.

Too bad, I actually believed (incorrectly) that Hugh had a measurable IQ.

At least he’s talking about boycotting a country with real civil rights issues rather than pushing an anti-Semitic boycott of Israel.

And who knows, maybe this will get Russia’s attention, maybe he drinks a LOT of vodka

Never fall for a posh British accent. Behind some of them are the dumbest people on earth.

Bertie's buddy Jeeves is a poofter in real life.

Funny that Bertie came out with this and not Jeeves.

BTW...I love the show.

Guess I’ll have to buy some Russian vodka now. Although I’m not sure what I’ll do with it since I don’t drink vodka...

Hollywood is indeed quite devoted to perversion and child-rape.

President for Life Putin doesn’t really care about gays. He just needs an issue to appear like a patriot. I don’t like the politics of the gays, but Putin’s gay bashing is equally offensive. He incites hatred. They incite political correctness and assaults on free thought.

Given a choice between supporting Russia or the degenerate filth in Hollywood, I’d support Russia. No contest.

“Bertie Wooster is furious.”

Maybe not. Steve Fry’s Jeeves could easily convince him that Three Olives brand vodka is better, and patriotic as well.

Besides, I believe that Bertie is a gin man.

If anyone should ever tell Bertie what the queers do, he would likely twist his face in disgust and disbelief, and awkwardly change the subject.

It’s interesting that a British publication would refer to Laurie as a star of Black Adder when most Americans would more readily recognize him as “House”.

“President for Life Putin”

He was elected. By our people. And during last elections even Western observers failed to find any major frauds - and i bet they tried.

” I don’t like the politics of the gays, but Putin’s gay bashing is equally offensive.”

What “gay-bashing” this new law, that has major suport in my country, contains?

“He incites hatred.”

How so?

I started watching House because of Laurie’s performance in Blackadder.

While on this side of the Atlantic, Laurie is more likely to be known for his portrayal of House, I am sure how widely viewed the show was in the UK.

Just when I think Russia makes “Absolute”ly nothin I want.

I vote nyet to this policy.

It would be a war crime of historical proportions and completely ruin any opportunities for Fuglies.

I will not participate in something so blatantly biggoted.

I thought we were already “boycotting” Russian vodka for some reason or another. Somebody called for a “boycott” about six months ago. We might need to “boycott” something else. These “boycotts” are getting harder and harder to keep up with. LOL!

Did you forget he’s an actor? Think about it. Even Obama needs a script and a teleprompter.

One of the reasons we tried out an Amazon Prime subscription in December was so I could go back and watch old Black Adder episodes. My wife, having not paid attention to Black Adder when it was on TV, had not recognized Laurie.
