I had already wondered aloud that if I was to get a round of applause for merely stating that I was from the U.K. what would I get if I were to say my starsign or my favourite food? I got a polite chuckle. I don't think the British sarcasm thing I have going on really computes. But dammit, I'm going to try. Other than sarcasm, what else do I have but a fat ass and a potty mouth?
So some guy introduces himself and states his unique fact. "I've lived with this asshole (DAMN! I wanted to type ARSEHOLE. Same language, different words.) for four whole years," to which his friend beside him punched his arm.
"Oh yeah?" I said. "I've lived with my arsehole for twenty-three years."
I call this silencing a room in one short, swift sentence. AWKWARD.
