Mr Rude invites people to pull his finger which acts as a trigger for his ripping off a fart, or as you Brits say "blowing a raspberry". Mr Rude has a French accent. Mr Rude has large nose.
A spokesman for the French ambassador says Mr Rude is “unlikely to improve Anglo-French relations”. Happily, Mr Rude is being broadcast on Channel Five.
Says a spokesman for the UK’s thirty-fifth channel: “The fact Mr Rude has a French accent is meant to be light-hearted and tongue-in cheek and no offence to the French.” Had offence been intended, Mr Rude would have been set in occupied France in the 1940.
Although the show is geared to children, it sounds a bit like South Park to me, and it's already been sold to American TV. STORY
