Most urgent news – the car fits in the garage after all, couple of inches spare all around – let the rejoicing begin!
Last night at our ‘make your own’ pizza party, I actually met a real life dude called Zoltan!
Now, let me be serious for a while. Having spent a little time in England for the last two weeks, I couldn’t help but watch some of the quality day time TV. Dog the Bounty Hunter for instance. First class american tv, with the blonde flowing locks of a steroid dependent loud mouth with his entourage of hard men heroes running around in combat gear brandishing their paint guns, not to mention his cannon ball of a wife running around shouting louder than everyone else – it is pure shit – what can I say?
Then of course, the Jeremy Kyle Show. I am always amazed that this show can continually find the dumbest people in the country and get them on the show. I was curious though, the audience looked considerably more intelligent than the guests and I started wondering about a couple of things.
1. When your other half tells you that you are going out for the day to the Jeremy Kyle show, how do you know if you will be in the audience or a guest
2. What morals do these guests have to have done some of these things and actually believe it ok to behave like that
So the first question is easy. Your other half tells you they have tickets for the show, are you a guest or audience? Count your teeth. I have never seen a guest on JK’s show with more than half of their teeth so have a quick look in the mirror – missing a few and you could go either way, missing a lot, and you are undoubtedly a guest rather than one of the more beautiful and IQ rich audience participants
Question 2 bothers me because these chavs really see no problem with what they do. It bothers me because they form part of our democratic society and can have their say in the way the country is run – that is scary.
I also often wonder if JK himself is pleased with his work, his contribution to society. I can imagine being a TV presenter as being something to be hugely proud of, like Sir David Attenborough scouring the world to bring highly entertaining and educational programmes to the world, or the news reader Trevor MacDonald impartially reporting on the workings of a mad world each day, but Kyle, does he actually sleep at night. Does he look in the mirror at the end of the day and congratulate himself for a good day at the office ? I hope not.
I would like to see Dog the Bounty Hunter chasing down Grant Mitchell for a full on bit of London Gangster banter. I would of course also like to see Jeremy Kyle stuck in the village stocks for a long weekend so that the decent public of the UK can cover him in rotten fruit and veg at their own leisure.
Enough of that – I would like to say that on my first road trip in the Rangie – it performed faultlessly and proved to be a very comfortable ride for the 6 hours between Rugby and Brussels. Next month it will take on another epic trip between Brussels and Palma de Mallorca. I was hugely happy that it did indeed fit in the garage today. Beers are on me
