I'm Back, Baby

Even though it's still the same language over there, most of our week-long trip to the United Kingdom would be lost in translation.

As I alluded to in my trans-Atlantic drop-in last week, this trip could be summed up with the tag line, "Four Yankee jerks moving sarcastically through England's monuments, landmarks and football stadiums one day at a time." And unless you were along for the jerkstore ride, I'm not sure any of it will make a lick of sense. It barely makes sense to me, and about all I know right now is that the "F.C." must stand for fantasy camp, not football club.

But I'm gonna try to do my part on this here rag to crack out some posts that youse can all get behind, that will translate into mass comedy instead of the private joke material. You know, like why is this picture below funny? Because this man is waiting for Don Fiedler's able body to exit the handicap stall at Reading's Madejski Stadium (aka The Mad Stad). Handstand's got a video of this scene, and the look on Don's face after exiting the loo is priceless.

So let this serve as an introduction to some more analysis from our trip to England and Wales, sprinkled in with some other shit about which you'll actually care. More to follow, chaps...

Slack Link of the Day: They may remain Sleepless in Seattle, but at least they won't be Bonerless out there: "Sexpresso coffee shops take Seattle by storm"

Slack Video of the Day: Since I have no real use for this video in a post this week, here's a little clip of our view from the London Eye.

Slack Song of the Day: In honor of last night's Super Bowl Halftime Show, in which Prince tore the imaginary roof off the sucka, let's do a little Purple Rain this fine frigid morning.

I am alive, though my insides are still growling at me after a week of whatever, piled on by yesterday's gorgefest...

Good to be home.

Welcome home, Ace. I hope a week abroad didn't turn you into euro-trash.

Prince's phallic guitar gave me the heebie jeebies. The man's a bad ass.

did you meet any genu-wine english soccer hooligans? or were they all hiding after the italian soccer hooligans put them to shame?

Welcome home Ace. And just in time to catch the culminating event in the less-gay variety of football. You know, the kind of football that starts with a circ de sole performance and has Prince play at halftime while wearing high-heels and some sort of bonnet?

I have a question about handicap bathrooms: I never thought that they needed to be reserved for handicapped people (unlike parking spaces), but rather that they can just accomodate people with a wheelchair. I was confused when a Curb Your Enthusiasm said otherwise...and this Fiedler episode as well. Anyway, are they only really supposed to be used by handicapped people? If so, that is lame (pun intended).

The sign on the door seems to suggest that the bathroom is for people holding hands with little kids too. Did Donnie have a little kid in there with him? Because if he did, I think that's fine--according to the sign anyway.

I thought it meant that I should poop on the seat, cause that's what I did.
