Sid The Sexist - Oot on the tap






Sid the Sexist (real name Sidney Smutt) is a character from the sweary and rude English comic book Viz.

Sid and his mates Baz, Bob and Joe, who are all Geordies (meaning they are from Newcastle) spend a lot of time at the pub, using outrageously crude lines in their attempts to chat up women. In an early issue of Viz, Sid approached a woman with the line: 'How, Pet, my name's, Sid d'ya fancy a f***?' When she answered with a definite 'No!', he continued: 'Well, would you mind lying down while I have one?'

Sid and his mates brag continually about their sexual prowess, particularly the former, whose secret is that he is in fact a virgin, and each strip centres around his struggle to lose his virginity, which he never does (often due to the fact that he still lives with his mother).

These videos are not for everyone due to severe bad language and sexual innuendo but I think they are great. And yes, before you ask, Newcastle does have a large amount of people who are really like this. Just get yourself down to the Bigg Market( Charvers drinking area) on a weekend and you will see hundreds of Sids hanging around and spouting similar rubbish.

Except for the Geordie accents, this looks and sounds exactly like last weekend in Reading.

I'm so glad it's not just Newcastle then. :)
I hope you enjoyed your trip.

Like I always say, the best part of staying in Reading is watching it fade into the distance as you leave the train station on your way to London...:-)

Reading is one of the few places in England that I've never visited while following Newcastle United around and I hope I never will after your recommendation! :)

Nice cartoon! Really hillarious!
But I thought sexist meant discrimination against women, you know, like: oh women have a small brain, they are from another planet than us, they don't understand what we're saying, they don't work as hard, they cry all the time, blah, blah, blah!
