HEY GUYS, HOW is your summer holiday so far? Mine is still continuing. I’m actually back in town, but I haven’t told anyone in the media. So I missed my usual radio appearance at the weekend and most of the newspapers are running old posts in my columns. It’s hard to get back into working mode…
Your humble narrator visited the UK and enjoyed the Olympics, which was definitely a feel-good occasion all round: look closely at the emblems on the back of these guys’ clothes (below) for proof of that:
And I was glad that the worries about Olympic security came to nothing.
Apparently the shortage of security guards was solved with a bit of creativity, as you can see below:
I also spent some time in France, the homeland of commentators Grandpa Fardel and Chris. It’s a beautiful place with lovely people, but very dangerous for Asians – there’s so much great food around that you basically double in size every week.
Below is a picture of us having a typical family meal: 10 kilos of salad, 100 baguettes, 2,000 portions of moule frites, etc.
We’ll have to start putting together new columns/ posts before the end of this week, though, so could people kindly keep an eye out for funny real-life offbeat news events in their localities and send me details by email (address top right of this page) or via the comments box.
As always, the ones that go down best are the under-reported stories, and particularly incidents set in Asia, where most of these posts get printed in the newspapers.
Anyway, I was pleased to win an Olympic Gold myself, in my special area of expertise, which is Extreme Sleeping.
Here’s me powering ahead in the Awkward Positions heat.
What are you up to? Talk to me.
