I was on holiday in the US one year, and I was waiting in the foyer for the lift (elevator) to arrive to take me to my floor in the hotel.

I looked back down the corridor and saw two of the fattest, most obese people God ever put on this earth, walking towards me.

I thought to my self..."Good Grief, just look at the size of those fat yanks...just typical slobs".:frown:

Then I thought..."Christ...I hope the lift doesn't snap under the weight".:eek:


The lift arrived, the doors opened, and in I stepped, together with Jumbo and the Blob. The doors closed, and being polite I asked the man which floor he was going to.


He replied..."Oh my God...are you from Scotland too?" in the thickest Govan accent I think I have ever heard.


Lesson learned by Roverbhoy:dontcare:


True story :angel:

Thanks.

It worked the other way too.

We were at Eurodisney and waiting in a line to get on a ride.
The line zigzaged, and ahead of me was a guy wearing a Celtic top.

For an hour or so we kept crossing by each other as the line moved forward.

Eventually I plucked up the courage to speak to him...and he looked at me as if I was stupid, and started shouting in, I think, Russian...

As we say here...brass neck for Roverbhoy

...again true

Funny how they blurred the face of the one on the right to spare her the embarassment of being associated with that photo

i like you expresso theory.

you got me hooked up on expresso too. :cool:
Awesome. :thumb:

Well, Don: welcome to hell -- there's no turning back for you now. ;)

If you ever find yourself in Vancouver, you gotta stop by Cafe Artigiano and have an espresso made for you by Sammy Piccolo (the co-owner and Canadian barista champion). My favorite place to buy an espresso in all of Canada. You'll never be able to look at espresso the same way again. (They even put a lot of places in Italy to shame.)

:LOL: Krispy Kreme? I heard they are making a new shake-like drink, one in which the flavor is supposed to taste like their famous glazed donuts. :D

That is laughable. We are now so lazy we can't even chew are own food. :D
