News, but not the serious kind

The caption tells us this guy – and just to be clear, he’s identified as the one on the right, in case it’s confusing which one we’re talking about – is “celebrating” a Scotland victory at some soccer match or other. For his benefit, in case he’s not aware, here’s how some other cultures celebrate:

  • by actually wearing shirts
  • by singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” or the soccer equivalent
  • by heading home and having an alcoholic beverage, just this once
  • by not waving bare armpits downwind at fans who may wish to breathe again at some pointfan-300.jpg

Oh, I think he’s had quite a few alcoholic beverages, Robert, both at home and at the game.
