Nice things about Blackpool
Went on a stag do there that had all the right ingredients. Fire hazard B&B, unconscious drunken lady weeing on a mates bed, one lad in hospital as a result of a glassing, pick pockets, packs of violent drunken arseholes and it was raining.
The next time I see Blackpool it will hopefully be through a bomb aimers sight.
I know an armed response policeman who is called there occasionally. He finds it incredible that drunken idiots will go out of their way to take on a copper armed with a taser and a baton.Posted 9 years agosootyandjimMember
The thought of a stag weekend there a few years back almost brings me out in a cold sweat. Horrible place.
We were originally going to go to Hamburg but the father of the groom didn’t have a passport as apparently there is nothing worth seeing outside the UK.
To add a nice point though. I had some cracking chips from one of the chippies.Posted 9 years agoBoardinBobSubscriber
Went down to the “Pleasure” beach about 9 years ago. Absolute shithole though that big roller coaster was quite fun.
However I’ve never seen so many skinhead, Hackett polo shirt wearing fannies in my entire life. Even during the day you felt on edge as though a scrap was about to kick off at any time. The only place I’ve been that’s worse is Whitely Bay 😆Posted 9 years agoHTTP404Member
The reason Hitler didn’t do the decent thing and order his Luftwaffe to reduce Blackpool to smouldering rubble has now been revealed: The Fuhrer wanted the resort as his “personal playground”, as the Daily Mail puts it.Posted 9 years agosootyandjimMember
Stalin could easily have improved the place.
Are you saying a naval bombardment followed up by an opposed landing complete with close air support would have improved Blackpool?
I think you may be onto something there, the IRA bomb in Manchester led to huge improvements to the city.Posted 9 years agoflubberfluMember
They had “Showzam” over the last week which was supposed to be rather good. Did anyone go & see it ? I believe it was mostly based around the Winter Gardens which is a fabulous place if you can see beyond the tat & fruit machines.Posted 9 years ago
I feel a seaside renaissance happening.
Alternative captions for the above picture (I work for a German company and over servers/IT are in the Fatherland, so I don’t want to download it for fear of an instant dismissal).
“Stick together fellas, that bloke in the Tartan skirt is looking at us in a funny way.”
“If we split up into twos and threes we might get in.”
“If you want to go skinny dipping i’ll stay here and guard the boots and coats.”Posted 9 years agoavdave2Member
As I mentioned in the other post some of the finest wooden roller coasters left anywhere in the world. And if you take a pilgrimage to St. Leonards road in Marton you can see where I was born. And then it’s just a short walk to Stanley Park which has a fabulous Art Deco café and you can go for a ride on the boating lake on the same motor boats which seemed clapped out when I first went on them 40 years ago and haven’t improved with age.Posted 9 years ago
Fast Ted’s Italian barbers in South Shore. Did exactly what it said on the tin. Boy was Fast Ted fast. Specialised in rockabilly flat tops. You sat down, told him what you wanted, you could point to George Micheal in Careless Whispers phase barnets in magazines even if you wanted. Don’t waste your breath fool. Fast Ted did a rockabilly flat top regardless, which was probably a good thing.
The process. Fast Ted revs up the buzzers, does the back and sides in about 25 seconds. Small afro comb whipped out and used to make sure the sides at the top are straight. Finally the jumanji of the experience. Fast Ted makes sure your head is dead straight. He then gets out a big afro comb with a SPIRITLEVEL incorporated. lines it up on the top of the bonce, zap. Perfect flat top in under 2 mins max. Next.Posted 9 years ago
