Stupid pictures, silly words

I guess you're supposed to drink all day at events called "Dubai Rugby 7s." They sell beer in buckets of 10, and wine in huge carafes. Everybody was legless by the time England took the championship.

The filth. Ew, can you see my socks?

Buckets of beer and wine make one rowdy...

...And more than a little goofy.

And I don't just speak for myself.

A few weeks ago I was writing down things people said:

"No, that's a square. I wanted a polygon."

"I don't like ironic hairstyles. Or food."

"Pardon me while this wall holds me up."

"Look at the vertical development on that son-of-a-bitch."
-John, referring to this picture. (He meant the clouds.)

"Since when did people get so choosy?" "Since Roe vs. Wade."
