I am Karl Pilkington, if I was taller and also a 40 year old British man from Manchester. The show, An Idiot Abroad, is by Ricky Gervais, and they send their friend (Karl) who hates traveling, out to see the seven wonders of the world. He hates it just so much. And I also hate traveling. And wonders. I don’t know why, I guess I just like the mall and fail to see the value in a big, deep hole in the ground (The Grand Canyon). It’s available on Netflix, I really recommend that you watch it. So funny. I wish I was best friends with Karl so I could just laugh at everything he says forever. Here’s a clip.
And here’s a clip of Tara and I at the Grand Canyon.
Not only is the show funny, but you can also learn about British colloquialisms such as “knackered” and “bollux.” And as luck would have it, I have family members in Wales (which is kind of the butt of the countries jokes like Mississippi is for America, even though Wales is the best) so Nick can decode these words for me. And then tell me about how much he loves “Monster Munch” chips. (?) Limey.
