The Questions

If vampires can’t see their reflections, why is their hair always so neat? 

Because they would be very cross if it was messy. Have you ever seen a bat with a bad hairdo, I think not.

If a kid refuses to sleep during nap time, are they guilty of resisting a rest? 

How many years has A Guy Called Bloke been waiting to squeeze that joke into his blog. The kid could apply for Legal Sleep Aid in the U.K.

If they weren’t called grapes and you had the opportunity to rename them, what would you call them?

Has to be five. Going into a shop and asking for a bunch of fives might liven up the weekly shopping trip.

If the grass wasn’t green what colour would you make it?

Need to keep Tom Jones happy by not ruining the ‘Green, Green Grass of Home’ too much. So what rhymes with Green.

Caffeine, Gangrene, Aquamarine, Tangerine.

Probably Tangerine.

Has your imaginary friend ever had an imaginary friend, or just you?

I have always loved the old James Stewart movie, Harvey. I remember one night dreaming that I had 2 imaginary Harvey rabbits. But they couldn’t see each other. Bizarre…

So, dance in the rain, wallow in the mud or naked angel in the snow?

Has to be naked angel in the snow. Several years ago I was climbing with a few college friends in a very snowy Torridon. On the way down (and heading to the pub) we decided to make snow angels in a virgin bit of snow. Being a bit of a prat I decided to take it one stage further and go for the full NAKED naked snow angel. Unfortunately because of the laughter we didn’t hear the climbing group coming in the other direction. I had to just lie down and think of England as a group of about 15 climbers walked slowly past. Given how cold it was – I suspect they didn’t see much.

Can you describe your blog to me without using the letters i and e?

*ts a b*t sh*t*

What are you afraid of becoming?

Petrified of turning into either Michael Gove or Jacob Rees-Mogg. Two beautiful and completely selfless U.K. Politicians. They are just loathsome….

8 Random Thoughts About Myself

I once got sent off in a football match for throwing a snowball at the referee

Once in Germany I ordered a green salad and beer in perfect German. Maybe not perfect. Had to eat a meat platter and green tea.

Years ago I was driving back from a days climbing. It was midnight and I pulled over to take a pee. Parked up in the middle of nowhere. Halfway through my pee a huge convoy of huge vehicles drove past with an army escort. No lights on the vehicles. I think it was a convoy of Cruise Nuclear Missiles. Or a late night emergency delivery of pizzas to a secret army camp.

Once got a smile from the tennis star Ana Ivanovic in Gstaad. It might have in practice been a bit of indigestion on Ana’s part.

Once tried to eat the worlds hottest curry and failed badly.

I can’t count past 7

  1. This was an absolute corker and a cracker as a read, truly marvelous my friend 🙂

    I had to read the Legal Sleep aid twice, as the first time l thought it said Legal Sheep Aid and l was thinking ‘oh that reminds me of the Uk Motorway Hotline for abused Traffic cones!’ I didn’t know sheep had the same rights! i know, l know it was a tad woolly, or just baaad 🙂

    Great read 🙂

      1. Restraining order? I thought you said it was cold!!? Boom boom 🙂

        No, you don’t actually … l think his humour would be seen as perhaps crass and too old hat now. Which is a shame, l used to like it, but it’s the way of the world. I remember watching the Goodies who l thought were funny as a kid and yet people now say the humour was childish. I also remember watching Monty Python and find many of those rip roaringly funny, but an article l read recently said people found them too anti-pc.

        We live in an age where people are too quick to persecute our history which includes classic humour and shame it. But without the traditional humour, the comics today would not be where they are,

        I wasn’t a punk, but l enjoyed the music, l enjoyed Malcolm McLaren and remember Buffalo Girls in 1983 which was the start to the House Music scene and without those bold moves, much of our music today would not be where it is, and yet those days are also slammed.

        Benny was right for the time, it was his time, the same time like the Carry On films which are also now being seen as ‘not acceptable’, it’s the way of the world in which we live.

        Sadly.

  3. I’m going with aquamarine.

    Ah, the Pookahs…rum pots, honey pots…

    You drank..a lot in your younger years, huh? Alcohol consumption helps with frozen nether regions.

    There are selfless politicians? Surely, you jest.

    You really like snow.

    Definitely pizzas.

    Did you smile back?

    I think you’re gonna need a large closet for all your upcoming awards…or, at least a basement.

    Thought about a career in political satire? You could be a British Will Rogers.
