This is a question I just don't get it

Poor Semiret, he's foreign and has no idea if he "should laugh about the whole 'only playing music when they are out of ice cream' thing or not." There's also a Far Side cartoon that has had him stumped for almost 20 years.

What don't you understand? What have you politely gone along with whilst internally going WTF?

What I don't understand is why people take a...
500 Vauxhall Nova and spending much money on it to:
make it so low it won't go over speed bumps,
have a stereo worth more than the car,
have an exaust that sounds like the silencer has blown,
give it a paint job that makes it look like a cheap prostitute.

And then declare all of this on the insurance so you are paying for something that in your mind is worth 5000 pounds (which to everyone else is worth crap all) ramping the premium upto something more than the worth of the car.

After all of this it is just driven up and down the same stretch of road all night trying to show off to other people how bad your taste in cars/music is and that you need to replace your exhaust.

no apologies for length/girth

designer labels
i mean WTF is that all about???

Surely designers should pay YOU for being a walking billboard/whore for their shite products.

Tommy or calvin are welcome to pay me for advertising space on any of my clothes - how bout 20 quid for a sleeve logo for starters.

Queen
and Star Trek. Although I tend not to politely go along with either.

I've got a mate who still believes after more than twenty years that there really are formal rules to Mornington Crescent.

Wine
I run a Wine museum, now I run it cause I'm good at running visitor attractions
Wine - What a load of dingos kidneys!
Best line from Black Books - "Wine doesn't taste of anything! Thats the whole point!"
Also Customers - Scenario one - have a problem or the place has just closed its gates. do you speak nicley and with good humour to the Manager and see if he can help or Do you rant, and rave an shout cause the manger will obviuosly sort you out. your choice. I have personally called the police on shouty customers eight times in five years and enjoyed watching 2 seperate fat men struggle with police as they go to the cells. Don't fuck with the orc.

Toast
My mother was useless in the kitchen.

When I was about 10, I honestly thought you made toast by putting it under the grill until it turns black and then taking it out and scraping all the black bits off.

It wasn't until I was round a mates house that I saw him take the toast out before it went black and thinking "What a fucking awesome idea!"

Cheers

people
who own dogs thae size of rats. ie: little farty ankle biter terrier type things. i mean, come on they're bloody pointless. you need a decent proper dog like a border collie* or a retreiver.

and cats, dont get me started on cats; never understood the point of a cat. - They do absolutely fuck all. apart from shit on the floor, bugger off for 3 days, only to come home when they want food.


*(not that i'm biased or anything, but i happen to be a border collie.
and a retreiver)

Took me a good few weeks to work out why things were being described as 'moleste'.

I thought it was Spanish or something.

Klingons
People who dress/talk/live Klingon. WTF?

Even one couple who married on a 'Starship Bridge' in a Klingon ceremony, complete with weapons, how fscked up is that?

Chav Tourism
I don't understand why Northern Scumbags come here to Torquay on holiday to stay in an overpriced sleazy hotel and let their fat fuck kids play on a beach full of smelly seaweed, pantyliners and syringes while they mope under a fake burberry umbrella and complain about the weather.

IT'S CHEAPER TO GO TO SPAIN YOU JOCK/SCOUSE/NORTHERN FUCKTARDS.

P.S. Although the tourists are marginally better than the bail skipping scummers who come down here to lay low and drink Tennant's & inject Devon's moderately priced heroin.

Hard House Nation and Ringtones...
See that advert in the UK at the mo for the Hard House Nation compilation CD? WTF is THAT? Duf, duf, duf-duf.... Rubbish...

And who the F**k buys those ringtones? You know, the one with that Sweetie Chick or chuffing frog? Is that supposed to be cool or funny - or just retarded?

Why people laugh at Lee Evans
Just watch Norman Wisdom from 40 years ago if you like that sort of thing.

I go to a lot of standup comedy.
And occasionally there's a joke that the comedians say which has the audience in stiches, and me nervously laughing along even though I haven't the faintest idea. It usually seems like it's topics related to movies, because I don't like going to the cinema.

It makes it worse when somebody asks me to repeat it, or even worse explain it. I can't exactly say "I didn't understand it myself" when I was laughing away like the big fat liar I am :-D

Someone once made a joke about catching the train from platform 13 and a half (or something) and everyone else laughed whilst i stood there like a muppet wondering what was going on. I later found out it was a Harry Potter reference.

I'm a cultural leper :-)

Aussie Rules Football
OK, so it's from Australia, so I can understand the Aussie bit, but Rules and Football? Seems to be very few rules or hundreds that make no sense, and lots of throwing and carrying but sod all foot/ball action.

Also applies to American and Gaelic football

I don't get it
How are people able to type ROFL or ROFLMAO if they are, indeed, rolling on the floor laughing, or the slightly more serious version where they require medical attention because their posterior has become detached from the body through laughter. Surely dialling 999 in this situation would be more sensible?

Mono
I don't get it in American films and TV shows when someone is described as suffering from Mono.

As far as i can tell it seems to be an affliction where people are sleepy.

Do our cousins across the pond mean 'Narcolepsy' but to lazy to say it?

LEDs on exhausts
I mean why? What's that about?

I know what'll finish off my rusty Nova SR (red of course), LEDs around the exhaust. Hmm...
