After a long hiatus, we have the welcome return of Philomena Cunk (and her less-funny partner, Barry Shitpeas). Both appeared on Charlie Brooker’s year-end “2015 wipe”, in which La Cunk makes four appearances. Three are below; I don’t have her and Barry’s take on “Fifty Shades of Grey,” but you can see it on the hourlong video, starting at 4:44.
The first clip is a new “Moments of Wonder,” this time dealing with feminism—or, as Philomena calls it, “femininism”. Warning: there’s a flash of nudity. Philomena appears to have flummoxed Femininist Lady; I wonder if these people know what’s going on when they agree to an interview with Cunk.
There’s also a nice liberal take on the European immigrant crisis. Note Philomena’s classic pronunciation of “money” at 1:21,
Finally, Philomena and Barry discuss Donald Trump and American politics; it’s great to hear a European take on our looniest Republican. I love Philomena’s comment on Trump’s coiffure: “It’s not hair: it’s like a sort of furry gas. It’s like he was born with a squirrel’s tail and he’s bushed it over his head to pass among humans.” Brooker weighs in at the end.
