Bloody hell! That's an excellent way of putting it.

Yes, but I would like to go on record here as not wanting to be able to see everybody's genitalia.

I have just seen the outrage bus go by with a cowboy driving it with one wheel missing and a load of cherokees on horses chasing it.I imagine they are indigenous cherokees moaning about something or other???maybe because it did not stop for them.

It passed by here yesterday.
It was being driven by a monkey wearing a MAGA hat.
"How do I know it was the Outrage Bus?" You ask with some circumspection.
Well the monkey driving it had an orange face with light marking around the eyes, very small penis and it was having some difficulty holding the steering wheel with it's small paws. Inside was a group of other monkeys hanging onto it's tail.
"But.." I hear you argue, "That could have been any old bus full of monkeys, what makes you think it was the long lost bus?"
Well it was being chased by a grotesque imp dripping a brownish goo from its deformed face shouting "Come back, come back, wait for me! You promised me a pardon you bastard!"
He looked pretty outraged to me.

Some Millwall fans yesterday. Outraged at players taking a knee before the game, deciding to boo.

Anyway, saw a superb comment on a facebook thread about it, along the lines of "look at all these snowflakes, these whinging pussies....they're booing people taking a knee". The responses were hilarious, it was like trying to get a 4yr old to explain compound interest whilst solving a medium difficult sudoku underwater. They just went from outrage to outrage-squared with a sprinkling of confusion.

Then someone said "yeah, we should stop all politics, let's get rid of the Poppy's on shirts". Outrage-squared went to butthurt-outrage-to-the-power-1000000.

Millwall fans once charged through the family stand that I was in at Saints to fight with a group in a box who were fighting the box next to them. Stewards did absolutely nothing, Dad and I were caught up in people shoving past but nothing more than being barged out the way.
We left, missed the rest of the second half and he did what any good Brit does and wrote a really shitty letter to the then chairman Rupert Lowe.

They're scum, pure scum and for every decent one (I know one) there are 10 who are pure scum and full of nastiness. They take pride in it which is the most tragic thing. Just utter morons.

Blatant apostophe abuse should never, ever be tolerated.

I'd like to say I copy pasted or tried to be authentically dumb, but it was just my mistake.
