LOL @ the Brits getting 6" of snow and shutting shit down.

Monday, February 2, 2009


It's snowing in London today and those Brits just don't know what to do with themselves. The bus lines are shut down, the Tube isn't running, Heathrow is practically shut down and the other London-area airport is closed, all schools are closed, and commuter trains are running once every hour. Mother Nature shut that city DOOOOOOOWN. Those Brittons said, "Listen...We're not used to this stuff, so we'll drink our tea and hail our queen from inside. Thank you very much."

With that kind of disruption, they had to have at least gotten a few feet of snow, right? Like...that real wet, heavy shit. Right? WRONG. Those bastards got six damn inches of shit and are totally beside themselves.

Six inches is NOTHING. I remember growing up one year in Maryland we got 4 feet of snow in 3 days and were back to school in 2. No problem. In the U.S. (well, in the Northeast and Midwest at least), we grab that shovel and keep it moving. We get out outside, get that sidewalk cleared and do what we need to do.

Brits trip me out. They stay thinking then ever think their shit stinks, yet when shit like this happens they just can't deal with it.

This has nothing to do with this post; however I wanted to say it was cool meeting outside the Chipotle at the Power Plant a couple of months ago. Do you even remember that, lol?

^^Hey!! Yes, I do remember that. I actually referenced our encounter in a post awhile ago. It was cool meeting you, too. Thanks for coming through...again.

RE: the Snow.....

Hell. we had 4 inches in Baton Rouge a month ago and were fine (only the second time in 20 years Baton Rouge has seen snow.) Some areas in Louisiana had 7 inches !

Of course, that isn't anything compared to the 9 inches I'M packing !!! ( c'mon guys, laugh a little. I'm still trying to ingratiate myself with MJ.)

DICKSPOT IS FUCKING HILARIOUS !!!!!

LOL LMAO ROFL hehehe hahaha ............ ahem.

Can't laugh too hard since one inch of snow can shut a Carolina city down.

I wasn't going to say anything, but since you are denigrating the place of my birth....

When a region is not used to and unprepared for snowfall of that or any magnitude, there will be negative affects which will be hard to handle. Since London is one the greatest and most congested metropolitan areas of the world on a good day, it is without reserves of rock salt or trucks equipped with bulldozer like shovels to sweep and push away the snow unlike many of the cities in the Northeast.

BPS - I bet. Dallas probably isn't any better, is it?

Curious - Meh. This was tongue-in-cheek for the most part. London is a wonderful city. Like you said, snow prep is not its strong suit. It's plenty ready for that fog tho! You gotta admit, six inches isn't much for this kind of fuss.

Dickspot - I'm pretty sure his comment was in response to the post. Oh, and please don't suggest to people that they have to walk on eggshells here, they don't. In the nearly two years since I started this blog, its never been the way you describe it. Any exchange that transpired between you and Blaq n Mild is strictly between you and Blaq n Mild. He doesn't speak for or represent me or this blog. Curious has been coming here for years and to my knowledge has never taken issue with the way he's been treated.

LOOK Carmen Sandiego (aka: Curious), sheeth your sword! Nobody cares about London's illpreparedness! (Just kidding, you know you my boy and ummmmm that drink you owe me is now 3 weeks past due...)

@Dickspot - Imma 80's baby. I rap wit a razor keep it under my tongue. Tazers, no sir. LoL.

@Jones - Didn't I order for you at that resturant last month...? ;-)

~Damnit!
