Only 7 years before the release of the hit song, Pump Up The Jam.
The hit *Belgian techno anthem*
The _unrelated_ Belgian techno album...
In an infinite number of realities, it's bound to happen once.
Is that you, Philomena?
Too busy watching Brush strokes I reckon
That was BBC1, he was probably too busy watching Max Headroom or The Tube
I've been Cunked!
"if all we have is channel 4, what terrible death happened to the other 3?"
I didn't know The Jam recorded a song called Pump Up.
What’s it in relation to Brush Strokes?

Feel free to join this if you’re want
I would but I'm not allowed to view it. 😔
Only 5 years after the release of the hit album, In yhe City by The Jam.
My dad never hit me once.
He always used combinations
Dad discovered the konami code unlocked things on the kids, too.
Reminds me of how the great boxer Sugar ray robinson's son was talking about how his father would beat his wife. "It was the best combination I ever saw my father throw."
Ah, the ol' reddit [abuse-a-roo](https://www.reddit.com/r/DnD/comments/11r69sd/what_is_wrong_with_some_dms/jc74gd0?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share&context=3)
Hold my fist, I'm going in!
Is your fist or you going in?
That will be a Reddit "yes"
How deep does this go?
very, veru deep. iirc (and I probably don't) about a decade or more
NOT THIS AGAIN PLZ 😭
Top job. Looks like he did his research before committing as well.
6 minutes after kick off as well. That’s dedication to the bit
That's an Airplane level of joke, I LOVE it.
Surely you are joking?
I've not even taking the bait.
I'm deadly bait and don't call me even.
I wish I was.
A 35,000 feet joke?
The white zone is for immediate lurking and unlurking of passengers only. There is no stopping in the red zone.
Don’t start with that white zone shit again
The start of this sentence makes me want to listen to *Joe’s Garage* again.
You'll love it. It's a way of life.
Come on everyone loves airplane
*Shirley you can't be serious
I am and don't call me Sherley (because it's spelt 'Shirley')
Did you just try to insult me and call me a Yank because I made reference to one of, if not, the funniest films of all time.
There's no need to be rude.
Because they called the film titled "Airplane" Airplane, rather than the English spelling of aeroplane?
I still spell it Airplane cause I'm chronically online and don't use proper British English lmao, more of a hybrid of the two
That's how I learned to spell it but I don't think I've seen it used in a long time.
I feel sad for you.
Get off of our sub
Lurking U-Boat captain?
Definitely sounds a bit...crabby
Absolute disrespect to airplane there
How so? Many others seem to agree with me on the dad level of joke here is on the same parallel as, for example, the hospital line in Airplane.
I did that air thing out my nose with a smile and a nod, very good.
Fair play, I tried to sound funny but it didn't work. I'll take that on the chin.
Haha I did know what you meant but couldn't resist sorry
This was a lampoon. A simple lampoon.
It was funny actually I did the air thing out of my nose and smiled
That legit had me laughing

Thank you! This is always appreciated. My screenreader read some of the text from the image, but not all of it.
…someone reads your screen for you?
Sorry, I didn't make that very clear. :) I use a program on my phone/laptop called a 'screenreader'. It converts all text on the screen into speech so that I can access it.
Thankyou for explaining! I thought that’s probably what you meant I was just trying (and failing) to be funny 😅
Have a nice day!
ChatGPT gonna take your job mate
Good thing it's not a job!
Outsmarting those pesky robots i see
They took er' Jerbs!
Hey, shall we start a Channel 5?
Sounds like a bad idea.
I dunno, it sounds like an optimal place to run terrible soaps, low-level European football, and from 9pm, tits
Hey say what you like, going on holiday, then coming back to a 5th channel with Xena, Hercules and Night Fever with Suggsy was life changing.
and deep down, is that what Britain was made for?
Channel 5 was in the acts of union back in 1707, we just didn't know it yet.
Truly, Eurotrash speaks to the spirit of Albion
Hmm, well, I *do* like tits...
And porn. Lots of porn.
But where else will people watch re-runs of Two and a Half Men?
We definitely need a channel that runs through all the seasons, then starts over again...
Once I gave up my seat on the bus for a child. I lost my job as a bus driver that day.
I want to go out the same way as my dad, peacefully in his sleep. Unlike his screaming passengers.
Well done Sir
3 mins frantically googling when channel 4 was launched.
The same year England last won against Italy. Probably.
2012 in a Friendly, we won 2-1. Before that, it was '97 in the Tournoi de France (A small warm up tournament before the World Cup in '98)
We didn't play them in '82, just '80 and '85, losing both.
> Tournoi de France (A small warm up tournament
How dare you besmirch Le Tournoi like that. It was a tournament for only the greatest teams in world football and, of course, England won it. This caused the French to realise they could never be as good as England and they abolished the tournament meaning England have been undefeated champions for the last 26 years.
It was going to go one of two ways, I was either going to post a comment similar to yours and get someone else completely downplay it, but honestly with your reply being as it is, I much prefer it this way!
It was also the source of the greatest free kick goal ever scored!
First thing I thought of when I saw the words Tournoi de France
Last time we beat them in Italy was 1961 apparently.
Finally something older than me
What year were you born?
83, so not much time difference but still a win!
Well then I add my name to the list of the things you are older than lol
Someone explain I don’t get it (sorry)
Channel 4 really does a bad job of advertising their matches
I mean I almost never watch live TV anyway so it's no surprise I didn't know lol
My dad would defo say this
I think this qualifies for r/NotKenM.
Laughs in Yorkshire
Am I dumb but I don't get the joje
Yes you are. When I said I didn't know there was one I meant a match, not the channel.
Not funny tho
Ah, the ol' Reddit 4-a-roo
Harry Maguire is a donkey
I think you're doing donkeys a disservice.
I don’t get it.
Is the joke funny because OP didn’t know a channel existed despite it existing for so long?
Or is there another layer to this?
Worlds smartest Arsenal fan
This is terrible dad joke. Shouldn’t even be classified as one
It's a prime example of a dad joke get a grip.
All dad jokes are terrible, that's the point
I mean as in this is a terrible dad joke. Not that dad jokes are terrible.
It's an outstanding Dad joke.
I'm a Dad and I can only dream of operating at this level.
I am as well. But I’ve just seen better ones. This one was even at that level just from my opinion anyways.
Not even funny
During 1939 - 1945 there were a few cross words said...
There wasn’t an England v Italy match on Channel 4 last night, to be fair
There was.. are you just being anal about which way round I've written the team names lol.
‘Twas on itv was it not
Ah was it? I even put it on at one point and never noticed lol.
Edit: no it was on channel 4.
Definitely on channel 4, as is England V Ukraine tomorrow!
But did you watch the match with him?
I watched the last half of the first half while I ate my dinner then went back on the xbox lol
I was very similar actually lmfao, I watched the first half with the old man then went and played siege 😂😂
I wish my dad was Leslie Nielsen
But then he'd be dead?
What’s your point?
A period after 1982 would have been icing on the cake.
And then you reply with 'hahaha' and he leaves you on read
Googles and 3 mins later... gold
Aye I love that he actually did the research first lol. Unless he already knew which I highly doubt ha.
He googled it
It took him 3 minutes to google that Info
Couldn't watch it, because Channel4 app won't cast to a TV, in 2023
Was Italy Vs England anyway the moron.
channel 4 is 41, damn that's old
Okay this is a good one
Really! I never knew that!1!!11!1!1
Now how about that Channel 5?
Bro, i didn't laugh, good try tho, keep posting those dad jokes from you dad
Also accepted; “yeah, it’s between 3 and 5!”
There has also been a Countdown since that same day.
"Didn't know there was one" isn't how you'd respond to that. "Didn't know it was on" maybe. Clearly set up.
how has this got 15k upvotes. this sub is facebook
BBC 1 was launched in 1936
This man says channel 4 was launched in 1982
By that arithmetic, I can't wait for channel 69 in 2725!
I don’t get it someone explain
….and you know he Googled the date before replying
My favourite dumb joke of all time:
"Did you know they only use Linux and mac OS on the international space station. Its because its dangerous to open windows in space"
My dad was a man of very few words. He once said to me, son.
I don’t get this at all, help me out
Damn bro, I must’ve missed the update
I think a train just went by, you ask how I know? It's left some tracks
Yo the same year those cheeky Argentines invaded the Falkland Islands
There’s been an England for about 1000 years.
My Grandad said never take advice from anyone.🙄
