Pictures from Buzzfeed’s Malcolm Tucker quotes as motivational posters.
If you don’t know about Malcolm Tucker, then you must find out. He’s a fictional character developed by Armando Iannucci for his show The Thick Of It, about a relatively insignificant English government department run by relatively insignificant English people. They frequently mess things up, and when things go wrong, Malcolm is summoned like the ghost of Christmas cunt, whirling around from moron to moron, sprinkling magical fuck dust on anyone within his field of vision.
His prodigious and creative swearing is rooted in the immense frustration being the only competent person a room full of fuckwits who are so incompetent that they don’t even have the minimum level of competence required to recognise how incompetent they are.
Add that to some very tight deadlines and the implied fact that he’s effectively running the entire country, and everything snaps into focus like a battered wife who’s just found a hammer.
Start here. You’ll never swear the same way again.
Yes, he is played by Peter Capaldi, currently playing the new Doctor Who, but that is literally the least interesting thing about Malcolm Tucker, so get over it.
