Lifestyles of the Retch and Famous?
I agree. So to make up for it, I went to a cricket match in London a couple of days ago.
They have tea, they have lunch, and mostly the players sit on a balcony, where they make phone calls.
That doesn’t sound like much action. Did you stay for the whole thing?
No, just until the first barf.
The first WHAT?
You know, after enough balcony time, eventually a player comes down and vomits on the pitch, and the inning is over.
And that’s all there is?
No, the Queen comes out too, but not until the dude is done puking.
