woohoo! Lesbian strippers!

Was Geri Halliwell there?

American politicians need stuff like this, more lesbian boobies, less war.

Oh those kooky Brits.. electing a monkey as mayor.

Bravo on the headline by the way. I'm still cracking up at the words "Monkey Mayor" even though it's actually true.

Not really, he's a guy who wears a monkey suit as the mascot for a football team.

these shennanigans beat the hell out of trying to dig up dead soldiers as a means of getting publicity for a politician.

"I did go to the pub (with friends after a county soccer match), but was not taking any great interest in what was happening on stage."

Sniff, sniff - smells like BULLshiat!

Why the hell do people keep posting these old ass stories from IOL?
2003-03-13 10:59:47 AM  
lemme guess, hot monkey sex?
2003-03-13 11:00:09 AM  
The Mayor at a stripclub watching Lesbians ? He'll never be able to get this monkey off his back.

I know it's old, but it's still funny.

Who cares about the farking monkey mayor? The key part of the story is this:

"I wouldn't have thought a man of his standing would have turned up in a place like that," buxom blond Keri Mockler, 19, who stripped and kissed with an 18-year-old girl at the Office pub, was quoted as saying.

Mmmmmm....naked 19 year old girl locking lips with an 18 year old. Good god, people, what's wrong with you?
2003-03-13 11:11:59 AM  

I've had those pictures up in my office for about 2 years now. Still hilarious.

Influx: We're still trying to come to terms with this evolution thing. Give us another million years or so.
2003-03-13 11:18:44 AM  
What's wrong with a mayor supporting and frequenting local business'?
2003-03-13 11:19:40 AM  
Monkey for mayor? That's nothing, we got one for President.
2003-03-13 11:20:02 AM  
buxom blond Keri Mockler, 19, who stripped and kissed with an 18-year-old girl at the Office pub,

Yeah,Influx I'm gonna have to agree with you there. I'm sure Bill Clinton was probably there somewhere,too.

He ditched his colourful campaign promise - "free bananas for children"

Does anyone else find this disturbing?
2003-03-13 11:26:07 AM  
Young_Fart - only when are children can have fee bananas can we as a society truely be free.

shiat, I should have been more clear. By "you people", I didn't mean the brits. Hell, I am one (I'm only living in Florida for school). I meant the people focusing on the unimportant monkey aspect of the story.

Perhaps I am wrong, but I am of the opinion that young (and naked) kissing lesbians are far more important than political monkeys.
2003-03-13 11:30:41 AM  
I agree with you Influx

see above.
2003-03-13 11:30:49 AM  
Also, no Floridian can say anything bad about a monkey becoming mayor; Jeb Bush is the governor here.
2003-03-13 11:31:10 AM  
That was Clinton, not me.

I think sex is evil.
2003-03-13 11:37:31 AM  
Influx - and I was just joking that we Farkers haven't evolved yet, and are therefore more interested in monkeys. It's called self deprecating humour, and you've been in the States too long, mate ;)
2003-03-13 11:38:07 AM  
maybe he wanted to play monkey in the middle?
2003-03-13 11:38:59 AM  
Not much difference between a politician and a monkey. For one they both sling "mud" when challenged.
2003-03-13 11:42:13 AM  
Hail to the chimp.
2003-03-13 11:42:52 AM  


I be idjit.
2003-03-13 12:10:22 PM  
Honestly, I thought the monkey mayor was an actual monkey, like a chimpanzee, which would have made this all the more hilarious. Huh, I bet even a real monkey, with all it's reasoning abilities would make a better politico than the chumps running the world today. Plus, they're funnier.
2003-03-13 12:12:59 PM  
LOL! Big_Bad_Dad. that was good.
2003-03-13 12:17:17 PM  
"Whether he's standin', or whether he's sittin', Mister Bingo impersonates Clintonnnn!!"

For the Americans....

Hartlepool has a long tradition of monkey jokes. It all started during the Napoleonic times when a monkey was washed up on Hartlepool beach. The savvy locals tried it as a French spy, found it guilty, and hung it.

Hence the name "H'Angus" given to their new mayor.

There's also a lot of local sayings like "As fast as a monkey going through Hartlepool...", etc.

So, er, this joke is hundreds of years old now (but shows no sign of abating any time soon).
2003-03-14 10:01:28 AM  
I live in hartlepool (joy oh joy) and the mayors not a bad bloke. hes relatively keyed in but hes a bit overwhelmed by the whole thing -what with him now having a proper job and not just dressing up as H'Angus the monkey every football match. Long standing jokes!!! I got mocked by soem old woman on a train cos she heard me say I was from hartlepool.
