Friday Funny

I don't seek out humour on the internet but mostly it plops into my lap. For some reason of late it hasn't so here is a repeat post of a Spanish comedian Transport Planner who talks about the 'revitalisation' of the New South Wales coastal port city of Newcastle. Some of you will remember the clip, some won't and some newer followers won't have delved back into my blog.

It matters little to me how many times I have watched this, it still makes me laugh.

  1. Trying again. Dammit. I suspect his sides and mouth ached after that fit of laughter - which is contagious.

  2. Oh he made me laugh so hard, isn't this true of all "improvements" when instigated by the government?

    1. Glad you enjoyed it WWW. Revitalise, we must revitalise by pulling up public transport train lines.

    1. I knew you would Cro. He made it sound like a simple matter but really although deveoloper driven, the train line removal was a good thing for the city divided.

  6. I loved this, actually had to put down my mug of hot milo so I could laugh without spilling it.
    This must be the same program Australia is working with, more people, less transport, but give them coffee shops and they will be revitalised.

  8. In your "complete profile" it says that you worked in transport. Are you by any chance Spanish? Perhaps your real name is Andrés.

    1. There is much to admire about Spain YP, including their hot passion, but no, I was a long distance truckie.

    2. Christ! You have some bloody long distances in Oz! I had thought you were perhaps a tram driver.

    3. A tram driver would be fun YP. Clang clang goes the trolley. Ring ring goes its bell.

    4. Never knew that! My middle driver drove trucks for Disney for 43 years. Trains, trams and public transit make a fun hobby

    5. Aren't I so butch TP. A truckie. Be careful what you read on the internet.

  9. I'm laughing at his laughing, but not particularly what he's laughing at. It must be an urban planner thing.

    1. Kirk, it is very much about urban planning, developers profits before local convenience and amenity.

  10. Weird - like John I don’t get it. He was a bit annoying after a while (maybe because I dislike comedians who laugh at their own so called jokes). Each to their own though:)

    1. That's interesting Cathy. He is not a comedian though, even if I found him funny.
