What you smell is what you get. [20060228|14:37]

If you do nothing else today, I suggest that you don headphones and listen to the London Underground song.


Some people might like to get a train to work
Or drive in in a Beamer or a Merc
Some guys like to travel in the bus
But I can't be bothered with a fuss
Today I gotta take my bike
Cos once again the tube's on strike
The greedy bastards want extra pay
For sitting on their arse all day
Even though they earn 30k
So I'm standing here in the pouring rain
Where the fuck's my fucking train

Chorus:
London Underground, London Underground
They're all lazy fucking useless cunts
London Underground, London Underground
They're all greedy cunts, I wanna shoot them all with a rifle

All they say is please mind the doors
And they learn that on the two-day course
This job could be done by a four-year-old
They just leave us freezing in the cold
What you smell is what you get
Burger King and piss and sweat
You roast to death in the boiling heat
With tourists treading on your feet
And chewing gum on every seat
So don't tell me to mind the gap
I want my fucking money back

Chorus

Lalalala, lalalala
The floors are sticky and the seats are damp
Every platform has a fucking tramp
But the drivers get the day off when
We're all late for work again

London Underground, London Underground
Wa-wa-wankers, they're all wankers
London Underground, London Underground
Take your Oyster card and shove it up your arsehole

I would offer you a tissue, but somebody might get the wrong idea.

Haha! Yeah, but the thing is, "old hat" by internet standards is anything that's been up for, like, more than 24 hours.

Timing is everything

You know what, the funny thing is there IS a strike scheduled for Thursday this week....

I swear it seems like there's always a strike looming. You prompted me to check the TFL site and apparently that one's been called off.

Bugger. I was looking forward to "working from home".
