THE NEW BLACK
And I'm not talking about the recently empowered and engorged elite running our beautiful country (did I say "into the ground"?" Didn't think so). No, ladies and gentlefolk, I am of course referring to the return of the Main Event. The most important meeting of minds since forever. The single most cohesive collection on thinkers on the planet. Possibly the solution to what ails this withering world of ours...
Yes! Pub Quiz!
As I have explained before, Pub Quiz IS the new black! Tonight the glorious Team Burger King will attempt to defend their title of "Whela Kapela! We've finally won this fucking thing and beat the bastard nerd teams" against such illustrious opposition as The Mad Hatters and others. Failing this of course, we will claim victory in the fact that we are perennial under-achievers and are merely there for the booze and to heckle Mike "Get, get on the mic, get on the mic, Mike" Smith.
In the absence of our 2 star players, The Vi-King and Sheik Yerbouti, who are fixing cars in the Southern Cape, we welcome the better half of the DSW into the fold for the evening and celebrate the even more Burgerness of Team Burger King. All this and a bag of chips tonight! At Mercury! Can't wait. Too long my body has been wracked with the withdrawal symptoms of not enough Black Label Draft. Too long I have woken to feelings of only mild pain and only slightly distorted recollection. Too long have I managed to avoid the deathlike grip of regret that envelops my entire being. Not after tonight!
The inimitable Tarty Farty Tequila Party is picking me up in Basil The Family Saloon And Roadworthy Ruffian and we're going to show them who's boss. Or second in command. Or third...
Oh well, rough day at the office. Should probably wrap this up and get my weary arse home in anticipation of the big night.
NGDG: The phrase "seriously, stop! You're getting too thin." is powerless against the retort, "Poppycock! I want to look like Iggy Pop so I can fit into my see-through PVC trousers."
Spread The Love. And The Lust For Life.
