This is the sort of story that is why I love the United Kingdom so much as a villager converts his local hedge into a dragon. Very cool.
I love the English, the are some of the nicest calmest people I have ever met, but when they do get angry the really get angry. Got medieval on him for sure. I always love watching the BBC seesaw between ‘Cat Stuck in Tree’ type stories and the beheadings.
British lawyers say American Independence is illegal. Americans point out the Britons, Picts and Saxons have a similar complaint. Come talk to us after you have made that all better. Also, I think the Native Americans would like a place in this line as well, and I think they come in before you do.
The English love their lines (queues). I once saw a line form for no reason, three people happened to be lined up for a moment and then others came over to join in. I think it is something they put in the water over there.
The resistance in the UK to the Health and Safety Nanny culture scored a major win when rebels held an ‘unofficial’ cheese rolling competition in Brockworth. The rebels risked all chasing rolling cheese wheels and scored a major victory for eccentricity vs the wrap everyone in bubblewrap crowd. Huzzah and good for them!
Apparently being a jerk is no longer legal in the UK. The crime in the article is that a beach side keytarist is alleged to have played ‘Everyone is Kung Fu Fighting’ at a couple of Chinese people in Wales. At worst he was being a jerk and even a bigoted jerk, but somehow that is now worth police action. Car break-ins, street violence, not so much I guess, Cops have more important things to do.
