Hate Rising: Jorge Ramos explores the rise of racism in America
The conflict between Newcastle and Sunderland is so old, we had to dust off Uncle Berty to provide some perspective.
Normally isolated in Fusion’s catacombs, Albert “Berty” Ponsonby-Carr persists on second-hand brandy and drug store tobacco. Because he only appears on the show three or four times a year, this diet’s left him delusional, surviving at a barely viable 42 pounds. Long periods of catatonic hibernation are the only reasons this 126-year-old man is still around.
After four pots of tea and a tumbler of Rémy Martin, Berty’s brought back to his pomp and ready for the show. The only prompt he needs: Some link to English football.
This week, that link was the Tyne-Wear derby, about which our delusional uncle fabricated a story about cavaliers, roundheads and Oliver Cromwell. No chance any of those things are real.
