from this morning with richard not judy

i'm just impatient
mel gibson as braveheart they have in stirling?
Purely for the Americans who've come to Scotchlandshire to find their ancestors, I presume?!
to be fair it can probably (unfortunately) claim some to be of some cultural importance
this is funny though
In 1997 a statue of Gibson as "William Wallace" was placed outside the Wallace Monument near Stirling, Scotland. The statue, which includes the word "Braveheart" on Wallace's shield, the work of sculptor Tom Church, was the cause of much controversy and one local resident stated that it was wrong to "desecrate the main memorial to Wallace with a lump of crap". In 1998 the statue was vandalised by someone who smashed the face in with a hammer. After repairs were made, the statue was encased in a cage at night to prevent further vandalism. This has only incited more calls for the statue to be removed as it now appears that the Gibson/Wallace figure is imprisoned; an irony, considering that the statue bears the word "Freedom" on the plinth.
to have been asked by americans if that was the william wallace monument, ignoring the big castley looking thing that it really is
the morals of the carphone warehouse - but i've never been able to convey how funny it was to anyone else
is so lame and shit.
