Would you trust this man?
I read that on the weekend. All a bit dodgy, really.
They were very welcoming, I used to go into the animal barns, they had rare animals like a golden pheasant, and a huge redwood tree with soft park we called 'the punching tree'. Reading it, I had a strange feeling like Self was trying to invade and undermine my own childhood.
Absolutely incredible piece of WTF.
I then viewed comments by best-rated to find US readers basically saying, "Cheers, I can be racist against Native Americans now. Weeooo!"
Bill Cosby went to the original Indians in some reservation. He asked what the word "Kimosabee" meant. Does it mean my friend? No, never heard of it, no one had. "Tonto" in spanish means dumb; literally. An old T.V. writer told him that it was all an inside joke. He said they made "Quien no sabe" which in spanish means Ignorant into Kimosabee, which was close enough. So these 2 characters on this show are actually calling each other ignorant and dumb. But I agree with most of you guys, this is what happens in war. Look at what's happening in Egypt. Just a total disregard for human life. I mean, it's very sad. But sometimes that's just the way it is.

but avoid the yews, obv
about how much he likes walking around London with his Son.
He said that he walks around 40k a weekend - if you believe that?
He's just walked from London to Yorkshire, that's pretty good going.
Or at least, that's how he obviously sees it.
Of course going out walking with his son is totally innocuous but it doesn't really reflect wider attitudes to 'any man with a child'.
Don't mind Will Self that much but that was one of the most boring articles I've ever read.
Self Snr --- we are going to Scotland for two weeks, it will be great ...
Self jnr ---- Brilliant, there are loads of places i'd like to see in Edinburgh
Self Snr - --- Well, you can't, you little prick, it takes a week to walk there, and a week to walk back, so we will only have enough time to stop for a quick piss and some pringles before we start heading home ...
Self Jnr --- But dad, aren't you, like, a millionaire member of the London Metropolitan Elite or something? can we at least get the MegaBus?
Self Snr --- shut the fuck up and put on your crocs, you fucking love walking, you anti-abstentious ragamuffin.
without risking your life on loads of shitty bits of motorway that don't have proper paths?
or are there loads of lovely secret walking routes.
Public Footpaths are everywhere.
Although I'll admit there will certainly be a few points that have a fair amount of traffic.
I'm pretty confident that he would find me being questioned by police for being a paedo (a) hilarious (b) the highlight of the walk, but then this is the boy who when I was sleeping on the train drew a massive cock on a bit of paper, left it on the table in front of me and put the pencil in my sleeping hand so he could watch our fellow travellers walk past giving me disapproving stares.
But y'know, paternal pride and all that. He does that sort of shit to me all the time.
