posted at 3:27 pm on June 7, 2013 by

Personally, I’d rather be hit by a drunk-driver than die of a heart attack on the bathroom floor of a British pub.

Cleanest pub water closet in the history of pubs and water closets.

Just footage from a wreck ought to be terrifying enough for people not to be stupid (like the ones here that show distracted drivers about to plow into pedestrians).

YIKES. That there needed the Dude? headline!

Not much of a prank. Just making a loud noise will make anyone jump.

That’s why he used quotation marks, dear.

A government agency put cameras in a public bathroom, and the discussion is on the “prank” aspect of this?

Surely this is some kind of hate crime in England, right?

Right up there with the 10-10-10 ads blowing up kids and others…

I hate PSAs… Why is it ok for my tax dollars to fund “safety” videos for the PC demon du jour?

I swear if I ever win the lottery I will make an ad agency whose sole purpose will be to generate counter PSAs.

Texting while driving is bad… so is talking while driving, eating while driving and putting on make-up while driving.

No, Ms. Obama… Miguel and Maria aren’t the archetypes to determine what I will and will not eat…

Why would we possibly want that?
