I love that the English have maintained the "it's naught to do with" construction.

Only fair to point out that he's a performance artist, not a taxi driver. Still, he's nearly always spot on.

Is anyone not a performance artist now?

You'd better just hope he doesn't find out you were making fun of Britney.

That's why You Tube is brilliant. Anyone can film themselves being unfunny on the internet now.

Thank you for posting this, unSane. My day has been improved!

My cats don't thank you though. I laughed so loudly, their morning nap was rudely interrupted.

Those are not mutually exclusive.

As a taxi driver, I'm sure that this is the fault of bloody immigrants.

Yeah, seriously.

I don't want to pick nits, but, it's not "Fuckin' Buckin'ham Palace," it's "Buckin'ham Fuckin' Palace."

Carry on....

London's cabbies kind of rock. The one and only occasion I've taken a cab in London, the cabbie and I ended up bonding over the fact that we were both big fans of the film The Warriors.

You have no idea how fantastic it sounds when a guy with a Cockney accent is saying, "Waaaaaarriorrrrrs, come out to playyyy-ayyyyy!"

I actually randomly watched one this guys vids the other day where he was talking about workfare... he seemed a bit depressed about it. Glad to see he's got his mojo back.

Isn't that William Bennett from Whitehouse? I'm liking the a cappella thing.

A friend & I were in a pub in Ireland 10 years ago and there was a guy sitting at the bar near us. Every sentence had either "fook" or "fookin" in it. I couldn't understand most of his discourse but I did get that part. He wasn't grumpy or shouting like this guy was, just a normal voice. It was quite entertaining. The cigarette smoke in pubs back then was so thick it made it hard to see...ah the good ole days.

Does anyone know what I should do if I just ruptured my spleen from laughing too much?

My blistering transvestite god, I hope you're joking. I couldn't bear it if you weren't joking.

It's a good idea to have giant nets standing by in case it happens again. And he's right to highlight the dangers of pointy hat pins.
