Then you have Aussie comedy, which is often about rednecks :)
You describe "You've been served" perfectly - wonderful stuff, as are the "Carry On" films, & gems like "On the Busses". All budget stuff, but even better for it :)

BTW, I found that Aussie comedy clip funny. Says something about me eh?

Oh my life, how could I even have forgotten: when I was little, we actually had a cat called Pussy! My mum was too nice to know better, bless her.
Hyacinth Bucket! Classic. My mother went to the same school as Patricia :)

Ha, a cat called pussy - well - I've come across a few of those (read into that if you will). The wife of a friend of mine has a pet rabbit called rampant - but I doubt that was an innocent faux pas ;)
