Try flying out of Prague's Franz Kafka International Airport.

It's like something out of Firesign Theatres Waiting for the Electrician... or someone like him.

"Welcome to the beautiful country of En Route, sir...

Try going through Customs at Washington National.

Cheers

Customs? Hell, just try going through baggage claim!

One of our Prime Minister's, Harold Holt, died shortly after coming to power - by disappearing after going for a morning swim. He evidently drowned.

This may or may not explain why Australians decided to name a swimming pool after him. (The building is apparently an example of that wonderful school of architecture, Brutalism.)

Try going through Customs at Heathrow, in the 80's, with Infantry Fighting Vehicles parked at the intersections against IRA attacks, wearing a beatup old field jacket with an Irish name tag and carrying a duffel bag full of bulky packages.

Alienation is not a problem. You'll make many new friends. Did you know those gloves come in elbow length? Tho I'm sure the sequins were a uniquely British touch...

Firesign Theatre, now there's a funny bunch,

Everything you know is wrooooong!

Well before Cheech and Chong, Firesign were the bust-a-gut roll on the floor masters...

btw, I woke up this morning and found I had turned into a giant insect. That goes away by itself doesn't it? Some moisturiser perhaps? Lucky I can type with my nose

Richard: So, were you, er, detained long?

richard mcenroe said...

I would say I was held up, but that presents some unpleasant images of its own...

I now present me, splewing pico de gallo on the fuzzy cat. She's not happy, and I have a picture in my mind that may never go away.

Thanks for the laugh, Richard!

TW: onater - go thru Customs onater time.
