Something that America has in very little supply, as I have found out – weird shit. We have stupid shit here in bumpercrops. Stupidity is America’s greatest export, these days. Russia has vodka and AK-47s. Brazil has coffee and what little is left of the chocolate industry (that no one will acknowledge is about to die, in large part due to climate change). Japan has bonkers shit in vast amount. That country sounds like fun. But then there’s our neighbor across the pond – the UK. They are full of crazy people too, but it’s nowhere near as out-there as Japan is. Not all nations can be that crazy. By the way, people from the land of the rising sun, don’t take that as an insult. It’s really not. I think that it’s amazing.
But back to the people in the UK – these chaps and chapettes are all rather bonkers in delightful ways. Such as making songs about absolutely ridiculous things. All the Dr. Who fans (I seriously do NOT get what draws people to that show) may think that this is all rather par for the course, but for those of you who aren’t giant British fans for some stupid fandom or another, here’s a bonkers song about…cricket. I kid you not. This is the strangest thing ever. Just watch it…
Who knew a British rap about an obscure sport could be so…weird. This was sent to me by a friend on Twitter, and I just do NOT get why this was made. Maybe because this “gentleman rhymer” could. I suppose there are worse reasons to make songs like this. But, given how much god-awful rap there is in America about bitches and hos, seeing something like this actually does make me smile. Good on you, you poncy British fuck.
Until next time, a quote,
“The British do not expect happiness. I had the impression, all the time that I lived there, that they do not want to be happy; they want to be right.” – Quentin Crisp
