When I first moved to uk, being the cheapskate I am, I used websites where people want to offer stuff for free that they don’t need anymore. Websites like Freecyle and Freegle.
I remember the first time I saw an ad for “hardcore”. They were giving it away! And I thought, “Those quirky Brits! They’re supposedly so uptight and yet they are just letting the entire world know they’ve finished ‘reading’ their porn magazines and want TO GIVE THEM AWAY!” Then again, I thought, why should they discard two large black bags of the stuff when someone else might want it? Who am I to judge? Two bags though. But you never know what’s going on with people. Lost his wife? Got fired? Horny bastard? None of my business.
Then i saw this ad:
And I was like… what? TEN BAGS? Jesus Christ!! What the fuck kind of country have I moved to? Then the telephone rang or I got hungry or the pope died and I got distracted and forgot all about it.
Then, later that week:
TWENTY????? WITH MORE TO FUCKING FOLLOW???? What the hell is going on? Is this like a porn sect? What the fuck with these people? Are you fucking kidding me?
Then the telephone rang or I got hungry or the pope died and I got distracted and forgot all about it.
A few weeks later, I saw the following and the the clouds cleared and I saw the goddamn “hardcore” flipping light:
“Hardcore” in this mothereffing drive-on-the-wrong-side-of-the-road country can also mean RUBBLE.
As the Brits would say FOR FUCKS SAKE!
Thanks! Was just thinking of you!
