Romanian motorised wheelbarrow stretcher + guitar wifey

Romania is one of the most technologically advanced countries in the entire world as displayed here in a fifth division match between two teams whose names don't matter


I'm not sure if this guy really is injured or not but what I do know is that I want one of those wheelbarrows.  I am of course joking when I imply that Romania is backwards, and the crowds here all seem to enjoy a good laugh as physio drives on to the pitch on his ridiculous vehicle.  He still isn't my favourite Romanian though


'Guitar wifey' is a local celebrity all the way up here in Aberdeen, and she likes to entertain the residents of the city with her own style of guitar playing and singing.  The rest of her gang, or family as I think they're called, also line the streets of Aberdeen busking to earn a living, which would be fine if any of them knew how to play their instruments.  There's one dude who just rubs the bow over the strings of the violin and looks almost surprised that music comes out of it.  My hope is that one day a genie comes out and tells him to fuck off.

I was once busking at night, utterly shit faced (it's the only way you can handle the drunk assholes) and some guy comes up to me and says 'hey mate do you want to fucking move, you're taking all my business'

He was just sitting on the floor about 20 yards down the street.  He's not even homeless!  Here I am, playing songs I don't really like to people I borderline hate just because they throw money in my case and I can afford more beer, and you're pretending to be homeless and your 'talent' or idea to bring in revenue is to sit on the floor and look ugly?!!  No wonder you're homeless!

What was I talking about?  Oh yeh guitar wifey sucks
