A History of Fucking
- David Mitchell: To be fair, the sex the artists have when they weren’t doing their art, isn’t strictly relevant to an art history degree. It would be relevant to a people having sex degree; a history of fucking. By the way, some of these people who fucked were painters. Some of them were plumbers, some of them were kings, some of them were generals, but the thing about them we’re studying is that they fucked.
- Charlie Brooker: Can you do that, can you do a degree in like the history of plumbers fucking?
- David Mitchell: No, you can’t, and it’s right that you can’t. But what you can do is a degree in art history in which they neglect to mention that the people who did the art, also fucked. Because it goes without saying, people have always fucked, hence people.
- Charlie Brooker: Such a foulmouthed little man you are.
- David Mitchell: Is this the wrong time to check whether or not we can broadcast the word fucked?
