Take for example Krzystof
True. A gentleman and a scholar
I read the news today oh, boy
Four thousand Poles in Blackburn, Lancashire
And though the Poles are rather small
They had to count them all
Now they know how many Poles
It takes to fill the Albert Hall
It’s all true I tell you. Szarlotka was in Blackburn recently (someone has to do it) and in the supermarket he had a sense of Warsaw déjà vu. They’ve probably gone home since then for economic reasons but it was a strange experience nevertheless. Imagine going home to Wroclaw to tell the folks about the architectural delights of Blackburn. What has this got to do with the Omnibus Edition we hear you cry. Not a lot, nil, zilch, bugger all in fact. It’s just that there is little new to write about really.
Poland is now officially a bastion of Western Europe, given that they came joint last in the Eurovision Song Contest with the bad men of Europe, Germany and the UK. No votes from Russia we noted. Never mind, just makes loads of money and put up with being disliked. You know it’s going to rile those other states. The only other problem is that you’re going to have to learn to queue properly now.
Someone did a poll on which countries people are going to support in Euro 2008. Whay is there not more support for Germany? Half of their team are Polish after all. I think the Szarlotkas are going to support Poland (to keep the missus happy) and then Spain (to keep Fernando Torres happy so he doesn’t take the wheelbarrows full of Roubles from Chelski).
Apparently no one wants the Russians to build their new gas pipeline under the Baltic for environmental reasons. Seems a bit strage to us given the estimated number of lost Russian nuclear submarines out there.
Just a shortie this week as Szarlotka has to get some sleep so he can get up early to go to Blackburn again. They’ll be giving him a frequent visitor’s loyalty card next.
