I think I’ve cracked America. They adore me over there. Absolutely love me. Can’t get enough! This morning Yahoo Travel published this article about my penniless journey around Europe, giving the American public their opportunity to express their love for me in the comments section. Their kind words were overwhelming! I’ve picked out a few examples of the hundreds of pieces of this fan mail to share with you here, and to make somebody’s day with a personal reply from their hero. Me. Who they love!
Bit harsh, that, mate. :(
No need for that, either, mate, to be honest. :(
Well, I hadn’t really given it much thought until your comment, but when you put it like that, it does sound kind of cool. I’m going to start introducing myself as that at parties to see how it goes down.
“Hi, you alright, how’s it going? Kris Mole International Bum, pleased to meet you.”
Well, I wouldn’t say I’m the “perfect” liberal, I’m not that cocky. But if you want to say it, who am I to argue? Perfect, eh? Nice. Thanks. I don’t give a shit about you, though, just my own liberal self. Sorry, man, just the way it is.
Meh, it was alright.
Who doesn’t love a “not!” joke, too, right? Am I right?
A gentleman never tells.
You make a very good point, Mansa. I agree with you 100 per cent. Would I have hitchhiked through certain Eastern European countries, alone, without money, if I had been black, for example? Probably not. I honestly don’t think that I would feel as safe. And that is a terrible shame.
Also, would I have made the same journey had I had the responsibility of a family? Nope.
Not everyone, though, was in agreement with Mansa.
So maybe I am an Arab.
Are they, though? Are they really doing the same thing? Seriously? Or are they desperately seeking safety, fleeing the hell of war in their home countries; wars created by the foreign policies of the US and her poodles?
Jesus, the compassion shown by people amazes me sometimes!
I see what you did there, Blazing Machine Gun. Clever! You are a wit!
Actually I’d make a pretty bad Muslim. I eat bacon. and I don’t believe in God. I don’t think I’m the type of guy they want in their gang.
Went there on the journey. Berlin, Hamburg and Dresden. They liked my kind. I like theirs, too.
I like your live and let live attitude. “So you’re a bum! So what?” It’s refreshing.
Let’s hope those Migrant bums don’t read Yahoo Travel. Or we’ll all be FAQT!
I wondered how long I could go before someone addressed the big white elephant in the room and mentioned me not being circumcised. If I had a quid for every time someone’s thrown up that slur over the years!
You know who is circumcised? All them bloody refugees your mates have just been bitching about!
I didn’t vote for Obama. As a British citizen, I wasn’t afforded the right. I’m tempted to call you an idiot, but it’s not in my nature to resort to name-calling. Instead, Jim Bob, let’s hear what The Sports Guy thinks of your analysis.
“While this guy is a bum…..”
Hey! I’m sitting right here! Jesus!
Now you’re just playing.
Would you make that same joke about a woman, Nicholas? Are you the king of rape jokes? You sound cool.
From all the times my bum was raped, you mean? Bit graphic, mate.
Nothing I can’t handle.
Ouch. Seriously, mate. Ouch. Low blow. Not cool, dude, not cool.
And besides, he was drunk when he said that. He didn’t mean it! How do you even know about that, by the way?
….Sweet loving. And I had a load of it to trade.
Rick, I find your tone menacing. Sounds a bit threaty. I don’t think I’ll be trying any trips like that in the States. But then again, I might do it just to call your bluff.
That’s not what Rick told me. Rick said I might die if I come there.
They sound like fun girls.
Is there such a thing as a mediocre handjob?
Sorry, I’ll get my coat.
Nope. It was a Lithuanian van driver.
How many fucking levels of wrong is it possible for a comment to be?!?!?! Jeeeesus.
