Mugging = Lolz
I had a strange conversation with a guy in a pub once about the Blue Man Group. He'd been to see them and found it really, really odd (he was a bit of a sensitive soul anyway and found most things a bit baffling). He described it thusly:

'It was these blokes, right. And they're coloured blue. And they do circus tricks, but not like normal circus tricks. There was this one trick where the guy gets hauled up on a rope, and they swung him around, and they swung him around, and then they were banging him into this wall... And they banged him into the wall... And they banged him into the wall... It was weird.'

I found the slightly baffled description funny, and had a little giggle about it.

Problem was, straight afterward, and whilst I was still amused about this, he started describing being mugged the previous week.

'These two blokes ran out and grabbed me as I was at the cashpoint. One of them grabbed the money and my card, and the other one held me around the arms. And then they hit me. And then he hit me again. And then they grabbed my phone too. And then he hit me. And then the other one hit me. And then they ran away.'

Horrific a story as it was, his habit of repetition, added to my recent amusement at his previous story, caused me to picture him standing around at the cash machine when, suddenly and stealthily, two members of the Blue Man Group appeared seemingly from nowhere to rob and beat him.

He got really pissed off that I was in hysterics at this story. I had to painstakingly explain why I was laughing. He still didn't get it.

Sorry James. but if you'd have seen what I was seeing in my head, you'd have laughed too.
