Oh GOD! These people!! Mr top left is the winner in my book and I sympathise with Miss top right. It's been a glorious day. I can't stand people who whinge about it being too hot here in the UK; we never get much sunshine and you get these bastards whinging as soon as the fucking sun comes out and the temperature finally gets above 20°C. FUCKERS!

Herge certainly knows how to find those things that'll make my blood boil.

I'm sweating cobs.

Herge Smith said...

Top middle and bottom left.

Soz, just the way it is. I think because summer to me is hayfever and a billion incest bites I've become conditioned not to like it.

I just love the cartoon strips!

MHN for short said...

Put these people in Houston, then they can bitch about how blasted hot it is.

If this was originated down here, everybody would say, "yeah,yeah, like we don't feel the heat too."

Coming from UK where the Hottest part is what? 75 degrees? We're like ooooo, I wish I was there!! Sweater (jumper) weather! :-) Yippee!

Herge Smith said...

It's been around 31c here today - dunno what that is in F.

But it's been hot, yes, for us Brits.

thordora said...

What is the weather in Britain normally? I always wondered...

try living in Canada where you can have VERY long conversations about the weather...whilst standing in a raging snowstorm. It's nuts.

Spirit Of Owl said...

FUCKING HAYFEVER!

MHN for short said...

31c is pretty hot, I think about upper 80's, low 90's. yeah, that's pretty hot. You all don't have Air Conditioning do you?

edwaado said...

"incest bites" that's a good one.

Rowan said...

I am usually the gal who missed the glorious weather....I hate gettin home to cooler weather for a cold swim. *especially with my swimmers ear ....grumble...grumble*

Rowan said...

yeah, about 28-32 around here too.

Herge Smith said...

Yeah those incest bites are a bastard. Bloody Sister.

Pete Gold said...

i just toasted my arms and neck. i had to put cold wet hankies on my glowing extremities last night.
i don't think brits are used to this weather - we have no air conditioning, and sun cream is something we only think to use when abroad.
let that be a lesson to me!

Herge Smith said...

Thing is we don't have air con because we so rarely need it. It's normally mild or damp.

Apparently if global warming really kicks in we'll get a tropical climate, which will be great for our tourism, as we won't need to go abroad - and loads of people will come to us. On the otherhand, the rest of the World will be in the shitter.

See, there's the British spirit in full effect - resiliant in the face of disaster, yet still able to do the 'v's at foreigners.

Bravo.

Herge Smith said...

Hello btw Pete Gold!! Glad to have you drop in.

MHN for short said...

The worst sunburn I ever had was on a cloudy day at the beach. I gained about 5000 freckles that day and had to be put in a vat of aloe vera. It smells, but white vinegar removes the heat from the skin. Don't know how, just does...

Ship Creak said...

What herge hasn't pointed out is that he is in fact scared witless of going out in the sun in case he a) goes up in a puff of smoke (he's never tried it so it could be possible?) and/or b) will lose that beautifully cultivated pasty-pale look he has.

Herge Smith said...

There's the truth right there.

Sniffy said...

Apparently we had 29°C (that's alt0176 (hold down the alt key) if you're interested) today. Very nice.

In fact, 29°C is fucking hot and I was struggling to sit out in it, but I try not to complain about the heat because it happens so rarely here. If things get too hot I just sit in my car with the aircon on. I'm going to buy an airconditioning unit once the price drop at the end of August. Fuck knows where I'll put it though.

Despite seeming uncaring, I do sympathise with people who suffer from hay fever, but not much. They never sympathise with me when I'm having to wear 15 layers as soon as the temperature gets below 5°C (alt0176).

Sniffy said...

I love this feature. I love this feature so much because it's BOUND to get people revved up and start all sorts of debates. Brilliant, thank you.

Herge Smith said...

It was hot today - and then the power went out for about an hour and I lost the start of new bit I was working on.

Do you like it Tina? - Even though it's just Dave Squared?

Hopefully this will develop into something quite different... I have plans... all the time with the plans...

Sniffy said...

Yeah, I love it.

You see, that's the big difference between you and me you plan, whereas I'm very spontaneous. I have no direction or any real theme for my blog, whereas you do for yours. Or so you say at least.

In fact, there are lots of huge differences between Cakesniffers and Chimp, they're totally different.

Sniffy said...

What say you? I even love the title! Brilliant.

Herge Smith said...

They're both different, apart from the fact they're both brilliant.

I like the planning side, makes it all worth it.

Sniffy said...

I wish I had a plan. Mine plods, but the posts tend to be quite spontaneous.

Herge Smith said...

Mines less of a regular day to day blog... I dunno what it is really. I never ever intended to do a 'my life stinks' type diary.

You do plan stuff - not like me where I can work on something for a week or so before posting, but you do cool experiments and photo layouts. You're not just writing whatever comes into your head (well, not always anyway).

And we've both become quite aware of what the audience will get, and like.

Sniffy said...

I suppose. You're going to like what's coming next. Give me 20 minutes.

garfer said...

We Brits are pale and interesting. We were designed for cloudy, overcast skies.
Some of us emigrated to the states a couple of centuries ago and mutated into rednecks.
The heat didn't agree with us and we started marrying our twelve year old sisters.
That's what too much sun does to you

Herge Smith said...

Personally, I'm just pale. I seem to have lost the interesting bit.

So the rednecks in the US are all ex-pats? Well why not? It's true for all the Australians - why not.

Sniffy said...

Surely you don't count in this discussion, Garfer - you're from "The Troubled Land", where the sun never shines. And now you're in Scotland where the folk end up filling the hospitals with third degree burns cases every time the sun comes out for a whole day.

Herge Smith said...

That's if they have room what with all the deep fried mars bar heart attacks.

garfer said...

I wasn't aware that Manchester was noted for it's sub tropical climate.
I've only been there twice. It was raining.

Sniffy said...

Ooooh, saucer of milk! Manchester does have a sub-tropical climate actually, it's just VERY sub-tropical. And yes, it rains here quite a bit, but it's very nice rain.

garfer said...

Maybe that's why Morrissey emigrated to Los Angeles.

garfer said...

Herge

Nigella Lawson has a recipe for tempura bounty bars. Quelle difference?

Herge Smith said...

Well if Nigella is making them, that's okay.

See, everything good that the working class has is soon stolen by the middleclass, renamed and made shit.

Going back to your previous example - The Smiths, maybe the single greatest band so far, renamed as Morrissey as soon as the middleclass kids got into him (and vice versa) and now shit in comparison

Sniffy said...

Tori Amos had an interesting story to tell about Morrissey: he wasn't very nice to her, saying "and what the fuck would you know?" after she'd complimented him. She called him a fuckhead and some other things. He is a bit of an arse.

garfer said...

Were Morrissey and Marr better than Lennon and McCartney?
I genuinely think so.
Angrychimp is turning into a blog hub. Much more of this and the sniffer will get jealous.

Herge Smith said...

Yeah but Tori Vs Morrissey? Come on...

Herge Smith said...

I think they were better in a lot of ways - Certainly Marr was a far better guitar player than Lennon and Macca.

And neither Lennon or Macca could ever have dreamed of writing a lyric as fantastic as -

"the pain was enough to make a shy, bald, buddist reflect and plan a mass murder".

garfer said...

You wouldn't find me crossing swords with Tori.
These ginger warblers can be dangerous.

garfer said...

'Writing frightening verse, to a buck toothed girl from Luxembourg'
Fuckin' genius.

Herge Smith said...

I've heard the media use the line 'panic on the streets of london' a lot in recent days.

I wonder if he gets a royality from that?

MHN for short said...

Americanese translastion please "
So the rednecks in the US are all ex-pats?" "ex-pats"? Then I can answer your question.

Herge Smith said...

Ex-patriots of this country.

I don't think it's actually true. Your rednecks are home grown.

We only get 'offical' rednecks at this time of year, for about a week or two.

Kenny said...

Sorry -- Morrisey was/is a wanker.

Tori Amos makes him look like a junior school kid armed with a whole bunch of cliches.

Sold out twat. Just like the Oasis pair will be soon.

Herge Smith said...

True, Morrissey is a twat.

But he was a genius when he was working with Marr.

Tori - Ahem.

The Gallaghers will always have Definately Maybe, which is still one of the finest debut albums around.

MHN for short said...

us too! :-) The reall "red-necks" live in my hometown. Daddy had a red-neck, but he wasn't one. He is one cool dude!

Karen said...

Soz, just the way it is. I think because summer to me is hayfever and a billion incest bites I've become conditioned not to like it.

Herge, how can you NOT like incest bites? "Incest is best, put your sister to the test!" Unless your sister looks like you. [shudders]

(Kidding!)

b) will lose that beautifully cultivated pasty-pale look he has.

I have been known to be wildly attracted to pasty white guys.

Karen said...

Tina - ° can also be made (alt248). I used to make my smileys like this => :°)

The ° was supposed to represent my dimples. Then I melded myself to a laptop with no number pad and just gave that pretentious shit up.

Ashlay Gimpsen said...

I wouldn't think Morrissey gets one red cent (from the use of "Panic" lyrics) on news broadcasts. And even if he could, why would you want to?

Ah, again you inspire an idea for a post, Herge. I'll put it up--an incident in Las Vegas relating to the London bombings.
