Mostly Unpleasant

Four Nil! Four Bloody Nil!!

Weekends. When they're good you wish they'd never end. When they're bad, drinking yourself into a coma seems to be the only option.

So, there I am nodding out at work this morning with sheer fatigue and two days drinking like a man with two heads. It's that sort of glaze eyed zombie mode you go into when yr body seems to be on the edge of shutdown and the only way to fend it off is go to the kitchen and make yourself more tar-thick sweet black coffee. I'm getting too old to do this kids, I need a new hobby.

Anyway, three cheers for my brother. He bought me an AA battery charger (and some batteries obviously) The first thing this will do is free up the best part of about fifty quid a month spent on the bloody Duracell batteries that my camera guzzles at a most alarming rate. I have also been told that it will impact less upon the environment, which is nice. I know absolutely nothing about environmental concerns and usually act accordingly, but hell, it's nice to know that I've reduced my 'carbon footprint' as it were. Thing is, since I don't own a car and since I stopped burning tyres and dead animals in my back garden, I feel I'm maybe entitled to the odd wee bit of environmental vandalism. For what it's worth, I wantonly waste electricity, steadfastly ignore recycling and try my very best to buy the product with the most extravagant packaging above all others. It might not be much, but I like to think I'm doing my bit.......

Anyway, Monday Youtube clip for y'all.....

You need the sound on. You may still find it dreadful though.....

I find the oddest things amusing.

It might be a regular thing, you never know.....

SzélsőFa said...

Now, I listened to it.
And yes, odd things can be funny, I agree!
But this?
I wonder if it was a very old film, did the makes intended it to be funny, too?
was it part of a big movie or something?

It's an old Morecambe & Wise comedy sketch. To be honest, I find it surreal and slightly disturbing rather than funny. It's basically three men in drag miming to an old wartime record (The Andrews Sisters).

Let's just say cross dressing has a big influence on the British psyche...

iLL Man said...

Good lord! She'd never stop laughing.......

SzélsőFa said...

Oh, yes, it is was clear for me too, that these were men.
You should be writing an entry on how cross dressing influenced your and the British psyche...Hopefully the influence has not been a long one though :-P
or is it a tradition over there?
hehehe
