Hello, my name is Tara and I scream my own name during sex

From 1999 to 2003, the largely-female UK comedy trope Smack The Pony had a series of short skits based on video dating ads. Youtube user myLastTears has edited them together into a supercut: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4

"... and sometimes my nickname, Millard", is how I heard that. What is it supposed to be?

My Lord, I think.

Smack the Pony is genius, thanks for this.

My all time favourite Smack the Pony* sketch is the Pashmina sketch.

*Smack the pony is a euphemism for female masturbation, in case you hadn't already guessed.

I think the nickname was supposed to be "Mallard". It doesn't have any significance that I'm aware of.

> "Mallard". It doesn't have any significance that I'm aware of.

except, y'know, goes like one.

The "Egg ... BIG EGG!!" and "I am making art" ones are part of our household vocabulary.

My favorite Smack the Pony sketch is the one where they sing Without You. But there are good ones about dating and delivering mail as well.

A sketch show where they never made a sketch that failed ... unique. STP are indeed legend.

I found out about them years ago... thanks for collecting the skits in one place, and spreading the Smack The Pony magic.

This was very funny. I shall get me to Netflix for more.

Incidentally, my favorite sketch was about water bottle envy.

Love love love Smack the Pony. I can't explain why I find the Ballerina sketch so funny. But of course, I'm pretty damn, fucking feminine.

I would suggest that anyone who enjoys this check out Green Wing. A scetch/sitcom/slapstick/soap, with many of the same team.

seconding the recommendation for Green Wing, great stuff.

Loved, loved Smack the Pony. Green Wing was genius too, but I haven't seen much of that.
