… as seen in Bangkok.

Here’s to a good week. Oh who am I kidding, Andy’s back from in-law duty.

From a couple of weeks of quality, informative posts to a picture of a toilet sign. Andy’s influence over you is more powerful than even I had previously suspected.

I am guessing the reason you are calling this post sexist signs is that the female character in the sign appears to be wearing an unflattering “a line” dress, making her silhouette appear huge in comparison to the male in the picture?

Comment by Pete

Errrrm, yes. To both points.

Seeing you write such a descriptive rationale to the photo makes it sound so much less amusing as I originally thought it was.

Comment by Rob

Did you watch Queen on the closing ceremony Rob? The dead Freddie Mercury blew the live Jessie J off the stage.

Comment by Pete

Get a grip Pete. He only seemed good because Jessie J was so bad.

Comment by DH

I must be maturing because I recorded it rather than get up at 4am to watch it live.

If the 1984 version of myself was around, he’d look at me and snort in pity and derision for that.

Comment by Rob

the whole fucking concert was like a celebration of fucking pensioners. brian may looks like some 90 year old bird off to collect her pension from the post office and the spice girls need to be renamed to the spice middle aged mums.

Comment by DH

Yes. I know. Oh dear …

Comment by Rob

best day of your fucking miserable life.

Comment by andy@cynic

In Thailand, couldn’t that be a sign showing where the male and ladyboy toilets are located?

Comment by DH

Very politically correct.

Comment by Rob

Comment by andy@cynic

I wouldn’t kick the Spice Girls out of bed.
Apart from the Posh one

Comment by northern

Do you think they think the same?

Probably, they’re only human.

Comment by Rob

That they hate the Posh one or the fact they wouldn’t kick me out of bed?

Comment by northern

It probably would be the same answer eitherway.

Comment by Rob

Not even going to bother slagging off that Queen thing.
And where were the bloody Smiths?
Not to mention Deacon Blue.

Comment by northern

The Smiths were moaning [though Johnnie Marr lives in Portland, so he was either at a strip show, on meths or walking out in the hills dressed as a hipster]

As for Deacon Blue. For fucks sake … you’ll be suggesting China Crisis next.

Comment by Rob

Spandau Ballet should have done Gold though

Comment by northern

And where were the KLF?

Comment by northern

They couldn’t afford to get there on the bus after they burnt a million quid when they thought they were going to be around for decades. Probably.

Comment by Rob

That’s one hell of a dress.

Muse, Jessie J, Spice Girls, Liam Gallagher and co got blown away by two dead people. Boris Johnson danced. Russell Brand ‘sang’. Spice Girls in a taxi. George Michael promoting his new single. All the shit we feared the opening ceremony would be turned out to be the closing ceremony instead.

After watching that Danny Boyle can rest assured his reputation is fully intact.

The KLF would have been amazing though.

Comment by Rob Mortimer (Not a fake Andy)

Especially if the KLF burnt a million quid in the olympic flame. Talking of the flame, a friend of mine said they half expected Mr Bean to come out with a fire extinguisher and put it out. I’m still not sure if that would be good or not, but it would certainly be memorable.

Comment by Rob

I think Danny Boyle nailed Mr Bean. But the KLF burning the Olympic legacy cash on the flame would be brilliant.

“and here representing Malta is… er, a dead sheep. Who let Damian Hirst and the KLF back in?”

Comment by Rob Mortimer (Not a fake Andy)

On another note, here’s something refreshing.
It’s Adidas and it’s Queen – yet it’s good

Comment by northern

You only did that because you know I am contractually obligated to not like anything that Adidas do.

Bastard.

Comment by Rob

Mwah hahahahahahahahahaha

Comment by northern

Evil but genius.

Comment by Pete

I wonder if Dang likes Queen?

Comment by northern

they neither hate or fucking love queen because they are both emotions that stop the world from finding their own inner peace or some other fucking bollocks.

good work on the adidas shit, it would be driving campbell mad.

Comment by andy@cynic

They are a little bit too AC for my liking. Don’t do much for me on an emotional level. But for some strange reason, Roger Taylor looks interesting.
