BORING people with the personalities of wet bread are celebrating finally getting public recognition thanks to the BBC series Conversations with Friends.
Individuals normally ostracised by society for being dull as f**k are pleased that their lives are being depicted onscreen in their true colours, which are mostly grey and beige.
Desperately tedious person Nikki Hollis said: “For years we’ve been marginalised in favour of characters who don’t make you want to punch yourself in the face just so something interesting happens.
“But thanks to the TV version of Sally Rooney’s latest novel, our community is being seen for what we really are – awkward people having stilted conversations that make you consider topping yourself due to the sheer monotony of listening to them.
“The characters are truly authentic portrayals of the lives of crushingly mundane people like me. I mean, they can’t even make having an affair exciting.
“But it’s exactly that lack of any sort of chemistry or passion that represents me and my kind so accurately. I’m sure all television will be like this soon.”
A spokesman for the BBC said: “I can guarantee it won’t. We’ve made a terrible miscalculation with this one.”
