Yeah… I was about to ask the same question… really, “Berk”?
It’s cockney rhyming slang, short for “Berkeley Hunt”. You can figure out the rest.
Have you ever seen the episode of Pingu where he meets a seagull that just acts like a jerk? I think you’d like it – http://is.gd/26fku
Again with that stupid jerk bird. Now he has the nerve to call Collin a berk.
Okay… that bird’s not only evil, but insulting too! Or it’s got indidgestion, but can’t spell…
For non-Brits calling somebody “berk” means something similar to “jerk”, … it’s supposed to derive from the rhyming slang phrase “Berkely Hunt” and I think you can work that out for yourselves, but calling someone a berk is far less offensive!
Maybe Colin could get a kite with a picture of a hawk or falcon on it as they use cutouts of these birds to dissuade seagulls from feeding around rubbish dumps and using public areas here in the UK (a bit cheaper than using a falconer with the real thing!). Mind you that seagull is so nasty, he’d probably just laugh at it
Wow British comics are confusing. XD
wait, wait, wait a sec, im British i have NEVER heard the word ‘berk’ being used as the word ‘jerk’ i haven’t even heard of the word berk (i think it just like the Americans making up accents for us that DON’T EXIST)
Thank you, TyCO.
Please excuse my ignorance.
And thank you Kate Serious!
I didn’t see your post.
I think it works even if I didn’t know what “berk” means. I took it as “bird-gibberish,” and I laughed. Nice and simple.
Despite what it is writing, its little birdy handwritting is pretty cute.
i thought berk wuz the sound the bird makes…..
same here -_-
Berk, Drut, Boney & the thing upstairs.
Ah memories. … although it’s probably totally unrelated.
one of polar bears friends?
or a rival !
haha or just a random bird
Poor Colin. His life is a living berk.
I hope his life gets better soon.
Once when picnicking with the fam, a seagull stole my sammich. Stupid Seagulls.
hahaha, just simply ‘berk’? niiiice…
See the vague hope in Colins eyes when the paper is floating towards him.
I looked it up,in England,Berk means idiot or fool in an affectionate way.
he was probably saying jerk in bird language
