Shopper, Menace, and two drunk homeless men

4 Dec

It was snowing yesterday.

At one o’clock in the afternoon, Shopper and I went on a walk to Chinatown.

We passed two homeless men.

They had been drinking.

A lot.

The following is a dramatic re-enactment of what happened next:

1. Inebriated homeless spot us.

Sensing something unpleasant is about to happen, we quicken our pace.

2. Crazed boozed Brits launch their attack.

Covered in snow, we try to ignore the demonic cackling eminating from the whisky-soaked throats of our enemies.

3. Sigh. United we stand.

      Well it was in the afternoon, we hadn’t even gone out yet. Just a normal afternoon walk to hunt down some lunch.

    Wow, very impressive aim for two drunks who were three sheets to the wind. I try to stay out of those shadier areas of town because they always want to hug me. – G
    Awesome drawing BTW! Just looking at it makes me feel cold and shivery!

      Yea I wish I could say we were in a shady area of town, but actually-we were just walking around West London. I think these two had wandered far off the beaten path because of the shiny snow and of course, found us. 🙂 It was definitely cold and shivery!

    LOve the drawings! So….you launched no massive counter-attack? 🙂

    • wanderingmenace December 4, 2010 at 5:36 pm #

      Nope. No counter attack.
      I was too hungry and cold.
      And yea, ok….
      they were kinda big.

    They might be homeless, drunken bums. But those lotharios have have seen the glory. And by “the glory,” I mean the backsides of both you and Man_Shopper.

    For that fact alone, those hobos, though clearly unrefined, have my respect. And envy.

      Well Ken,

      The whole of Camden is about to see a whole lot of Shopper and I.
      Operation Hot Sister takes place tonight.
      I’ve purchased some leopard skin and there’s some promise of lace and corset as she and I set out in characters.
      Things should be interesting.
      Though I’m hoping we don’t run into our homeless compadres again.

    If you would have just done a drunken twirl, you would have been fine. Sigh. I thought I prepared you for this?

    • wanderingmenace December 5, 2010 at 10:25 am #

      I’m sorry Chicken.
      I should have paid more attention.
      Next time I’ll do better.

    You should carry a sign saying, “Not up for a snow fight, hobos. No.

    P.S. We’re not girls.”

    Next time. :p

      I should just have that put on a t-shirt.
      I mean really, it’s such a versatile phrase.
