You Are 30% Redneck
The wheels still turning, but the hamster's dead.
You're just fakin' bein' a redneck.
in response to claire's questions…
1. Iceland or Sweden?
Sweden. my geography's a bit confused, but i believe that sweden gave us H+M, and possibly Ikea.

Pegasus with a cardboard horn stuck to him. come on, if you're going to ride a horse, the ability to fly is a more useful attribute than pointiness.

well down to miss becky dixon herself for spotting this immeasurably grim thing whilst working in the maternity wing of the leicester infirmary..
"a big fat woman who fell over whilst being scanned. she was so enormous (something like 30 stone) that no-one could pick her up, it took two hours to find a hoist large enough and they very nearly had to call the fire brigade in order to get her off the floor."
jesus christ, that's TOTALLY grim.
good work becky!
but is it as grim as a story from another friend who should perhaps remain nameless?...having spent an ill-advised night at a union event, said lady offered her floorspace to a drunken flatmate unable to find his own keys. not only did this rakish gentleman manage to join her in her comfortable and inviting bed; he also proceeded to piss all over her.
great work, nameless friend! the poll continues!
