I don't think anyone is willing to take the backlash from the EF kitty mafia.

Lolcats, on the other hand.
Must speak to my fellow EF Dog Mafia members to pull up our socks (and go higher up on our horses!!)

Leave LOLcats out of this - LIB tried and flailed.

Indeed, all the ones around here are actually from Ecuador!

Wow, you've spotted the difference??? Perhaps some are even Bolivians ... or Swiss ... I bet some are Swiss.

Peruvian pan-flute players.

Stand-still street acts.

I would ban them too regardless of nationality...
They tend to give me a headache

Sorry saying they were Peruvian. It don't mind pan-flutes, but it is the groups that dress up and play with a tacky backing sound system that annoys me.
They seem to follow me around Europe

My flatmate in uni used to play the bagpipes. He used to try and get practice in by going down to the local sports field and people would come out of their houses to shout at him.

I believe that's a Virgo obsession. Eh Virgos, isn't that so?! ...

Besides, I'd lock up into room 101 all those one man & women show humorists who think they're so funny. like that they can entertain themselves amongst themselves.

It's nice to have all these public places to myself now.



Sorry, DB, you were doing so well, but you finally went out under "celebrities"

Re: Room 101 Revisited: Things that need to be banned from public places

Any effing insects that enter my exclusion zone, especially when I'm eating.

Anyone who even thinks about talking to me whilst administering a haircut, no, I haven't been on a friggin' vacation..... and I couldn't care less where you've been or if your horse took a dump this morning.

People on EF who think that they've just re-discovered the New World when yet another SVP poster hits the billboards.

Swiss sports commentators who, in the event of a draw, always, say "And the score between the Basel B-Team Lavatory Assistants and Chur Church Bell Ringers was 2:2, a draw". I think that the listeners know that 2 = 2 don't you think? "Und dere Resultat isch au grad innecho: Zug 4, Chloote 4 - untentschiide". We know!

Sorry, you were banned in post 12.

(...and you thanked me for it !)

I guess that just leaves me.

I'll switch the lights off.

Drivers flicking their cigarette butts out of the car.

Drivers choosing the straight lane but turn left.
