Does It Offend You, Yeah? pinched from the Office

Does It Offend You, Yeah? have revealed the name they've saddled themselves with is a quote from - saints preserve us - Ricky Gervias. Apparently:

When me and James first started writing music together we decided to put it up on MySpace. We needed a name to put as our profile name so just put what was the first thing that was said on TV, we switched it on and Ricky Gervais said 'Does it offend you, yeah? My drinking?' so we just went with that. No thought went into it whatsoever."

We're not buying that it was the first thing they heard, mind. Bet they were constantly switching the TV on and off all evening, building up a shortlist of names: "news from where you are", "call the BBC Action Line", "Ten Minute Freeview" - before landing on the one they've wound up with.

They should, perhaps, have switched the set on one more time.
