I saw the funniest thing the other day. I was going to blog about it there and then, but I wasn’t at a computer, my phone was low on battery and….to be honest….I couldn’t be arsed. But now, having remembered this thing from the other day that, until now, I’d forgotten about….AND the fact that I can now be arsed, here’s what I saw.
There were three guys walking along, cutting through a car park near the train station, chatting away to each other. The guy at the back was saying something when the guy in the middle sneezed. Now, that doesn’t seem unusual or ‘blogworthy’ I admit, but it was the way in which he did it.
Firstly, it wasn’t a typical ‘Ah-choo!’. It kicked off with an incredibly loud noise that could only be described as a cross between the words ‘ear’ and ‘air’; let’s call it ‘eair’. He then didn’t do the ‘choo’ bit, instead blasting snot and nostril detritus through his nose and closed mouth, resulting in a sort of ‘thplrrp”.
So, in conclusion, ‘Ah-choo’ was in fact ‘EAIR! Thplrrp!’. Got it?
But it doesn’t end there.
The ‘EAIR!’ was what attracted my attention to them, but it was the ‘Thplrrp!’ that made me laugh. This is because the sneezer turned to face his talking mate, mid-sneeze, and proceeded to offload his nasal explosion all over his chest.
‘EAIR!’ Turn. ‘THPLRRP!’
His talking mate added in “oh, cheers mate!”, at which point the sneezer simply turned back and very audibly chuckled; “heh heh heh…”
But what made it so funny is the fact that:
a) It didn’t seem out of place or unusual to them
b) The guy in front didn’t even turn around
c) They didn’t even stop walking
This could only happen with blokes.
