What a joker

It was the day after ‘Batman: The Dark Knight’ was released in the cinemas. Some of my friends are BIG BIG Batman fans. They were off to see the film that evening. In the afternoon they were that excited they decided to dress up as the Joker for when they watched the film.

Now sitting in a beer garden with 2 people looking like the joker made a slightly unusual afternoon, but not enough for a post on this blog. What was really unusual was how we killed some time in the afternoon before the film.

It's a funny world we live in. Speaking of which, do you know how I got these scars?

Yes, you didn’t guess it, we went and played golf. Yes myself and the 2 jokers, impersonations included. The faces on the other golfers on the course was a picture! Below is even the standard Joker playing a bunker shot photo…

You see, madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push!

This happened a few years ago, but I recently found these photos and had to post it. A few mates and myself were at the Camden Crawl walking towards Koko. It’s a little tricky to work out what happened here from the photos but I shall try my best to describe.

We noticed a big wheel – with it being a music festival thought it was a piece of artwork/monument type thing – and decided to stand in it. We then decided to get some silly photos taken with us sat in the wheel.

Suddenly this bloke comes running over really angrily from nowhere (he’s the guy pictured in the grey shirt in the photo directly above) shouting ‘GET OFF MY SANDWICHES!!! THEY’RE MINE!!!’ We weren’t exactly sure if he was talking to us but we were then suddenly ushered out of the wheel so he could get his sandwiches – he did not find it funny.

This is someone who passionately likes a sandwich, but someone who leaves them in the most bizarre place – a giant wheel in Camden.

On the subject of the previous post on the number 111, i think it’s a good a time than ever to post another 111 update as there has been quite a high level of quality of 111 sightings in recent times. So here are a few more…

The above is taken from SkySports tv advertisement for the Champions League next season (2010/2011 season). How many games are they showing?? This advert seems to always be on at the moment too.

I was doing some research on Playboy at work and what was the main article on the homepage? No, I don’t get it either.

Ashes to Ashes countdown clock

Ashes to Ashes countdown clock

This was taken from the first episode of Ashes to Ashes series 3. There was a countdown clock in the office counting down to when the kidnapped child was going to die. You may think so what, there was a countdown, it was bound to show this time, well maybe, but there were only 2 sightings of the clock in the episode and shortly after this final sighting of the countdown clock they actually found the kidnapped child.

My first ever £1.11 receipt

My first ever £1.11 receipt

Some doubters may think I deliberately make sure everything I buy totals to £1.11, but you are wrong, I would never force a 111 on myself, it happens enough as it is. I only have had 3 £1.11 receipts so far and the above was my first. This one really was unusual because someone I worked with was going to the local shop and asked if I wanted anything. When he came back he gave everyone their items and receipts, amazingly my choice of drink and sweet came to £1.11!

UFC 111

UFC 111

I don’t know much about UFC, but I have a few friends on Facebook who do. Recently the big event – ‘UFC 111’ happened and got mentioned a lot on my news feed. I thought it was a joke until I found the site for the event and it was in fact real.

Below are 2 news articles I actually saw quite awhile go but I went and found again to add to my new blog as they were such good sightings…

During my time at primary school a new kid joined our form in my last year. He had moved school and we later found out why. It was rumoured he was bullied because he walked into a corner of a table with such force that he ended up loosing a testicle.

I was telling this story to my mate Jason when he had a similar story that was miles more impressive.

One of Jason’s mates at school was a kid called Wayne Ball. One day Wayne decided to skive one of his lessons and decided to go and hide in a field of horses. One of Jason’s friends saw Wayne walking into the field through a classroom window.

While Wayne was in the field a horse came up to him and bit one of his balls off! Ouch! For the rest of his time at that school, everyone knew he had lost a testicle. They even had a song about him – ‘Wayne Ball! He’s only got one ball! Wayne Ball!’ Poor poor guy.

“He was spanking me and all I could think of was shopping lists.”

A dog is not just for christmas

A dog is not just for christmas

This is my final Christmas related post for now. I was outside Brixton tube one night just before Christmas when I passed by this busker. His Christmas hat was a nice touch, but the Christmas top and hat for the dog really made it for me. The dog was very well trained because he didn’t move, but unfortunately not much music was coming from him.

Still this dog has a long way to go to match Bella – Will’s/Office dog at Acknowledgement. My fellow employees keep buying outfits for Will’s dog and then claim they were bought by the fictional dog Stella (apparently Bella’s best mate).

While I mention Bella, I should also point out how much she loves to sun bathe and the photo below proves it…

Finally I shall just point out this piece of artwork I saw in a gallery in Mayfair a few months back. It was a stuffed dog eating a rodent which I thought was frighteningly similar to Bella.

The Jesus army badge

Sticking on the Christmas theme (this is stretching the post similarities I know) is this beauty. Me and my mate Tom were walking through the backstreets north of Oxford Street when we came across the modern Jesus army van. It was all on it’s own. It was Sunday that day too, surely it should be in use on this religious day. What was it doing there? What is this all about? If it belonged to someone in the building it was parked outside then to afford a place there, the church must be paying well these days.

I am a big fan of Mark Billingham’s crime series novels featuring the detective Tom Thorne. It is one of the few novels I read. I can really relate to these books because the stories are based around north and central London. One novel is even based around the Turkish shops on Green Lanes where I used to live!

What I found really remarkable though was to find out that in the book detective Tom Thorne lives on the same road as my mate Ahmed – Prince of Wales Rd in Camden!

 

A thrilling read

A thrilling read

I was waiting in an airport lounge reading Michelle’s magazine when I saw this beauty of a headline. “Chantelle refused to give me a poo sample. What’s she got to hide?” with Gillian McKeith lying naked amongst fruit. Wrong on so many levels, but even more funny for me because Michelle squirms whenever she sees or hears the word ‘POO.’

 

My friend Michelle is known by her entire family and friends back where she lives as ‘Spud.’ But how did she get this nickname attributed to her?

You didn’t guess it. Her mum used to clean muddy potatoes by licking them clean while she was pregnant with Michelle.
