Was stood with one of my mates in a corner shop the other day whilst she chose a drink she wanted and she VERY loudly (I might add) suddenly came out with 'nooo I want a kinder egg, I don't like the choco-lllate, but I like to play with the toy inside'
Its safe to say she got quite a few strange looks from people in the shop

Hahaha

I swear its moments like those that makes us wonder if we're slightly addicted to the League :wink:

I can't BELIEVE I never posted about this before...

there's a taxi firm near me (yes, LOCAL), and their phone number is 444 4444. Seriously! I wish they'd change the 5th 4 to a 2... but still...

I've never actually used them. But if/when I do, I'll get a business card and scan it for all of us to enjoy. Or summat.

:lol:

In the car yesterday my Dad was talking about some woman he knows and said "Stephen and I are going away in the Summer" He said it just like Judee Levinson, I laughed to myself though not out loud cuz I don't think he'd appreciate the comparison!

Speaking of taxis, there is actually a firm near me somewhere called Local Taxis!! Haha x

There's one in my home town too! Funnily enough I've never really thought about it as a League thing! :shock:

Haha. I swear that the new British Gas advert has Reece doing the voice over. Bet it's been mentioned already, but I just noticed it now and thought I'd see if anyone else had!

EDIT: Has to be! It sounds SO much like him! And also...I went to a uni open day and the woman at a course said to me and my friends, "so are you local?" Nearly wet myself.

Okay - this happened to my mum's hairdresser. I swear it did - or she swears.

Her premises was invaded/robbed by gypsies. I don't know if she was there and they may not have had a 3 legged dog. But a gang of gypsies came into the shop, damaged her equipment, stole some money and general made a mess. And when i say 'mess', i mean literally. One of them left a person's poo in the sink.

It defies belief but it happened, apparently.

Just now on the local news there was a story about how houses in Harrogate I think, are only being sold to locals. And they said twice "Local houses for local people" and I just laughed at how obviously on purpose it was. Must have been good to get something funny that fits with the story! :D

I hope it wasn't on purpose, it always makes me laugh more when people do things accidentally. :lol:

League of Gentlemen Moment #163:

"Sergio...you're like the Dr. Chinnery of love."

"Thanks! Wait. What?"

League of Gentlemen Real Life Moment #211:

While watching television, out of nowhere my fiancee's sister shouts 'HOW DO YOU SHAVE!' because a man sitting on a bench in the program we were watching resembles the blind fellow from Series 1. I didn't think she remembered the show...

League of Gentlemen Real Life Moment #210:

After the "Chaos" scene with the road men in Series 1:

My Fiancee: That was...horrifying.

(beat)

My Fiancee: Let's watch it again.

League of Gentlemen Real Life Moment #011:

Look at what you make Pops do!! - Me, after totally annihilating my buddy Sergio at RISK.

"Hey, Dan, how much was that box set?"

"It was...seven...and twelvety pounds!" in my best Tubbs approximation.

Oh, and the new box set has got me shouting 'Hello, Dave?' occasionally.

And I don't think I 'get' the Charity Shop ladies...actually, I think that they might be like the Salvation Army or Goodwill stores people here, though they actually hire guys and dolls that remind me of the zombies at the end of Shaun of the Dead.

But, my Uncle Jan's house is run much like the Denton's and used to wear mighty blue whitey's like Harvey does in Episode 1 when we were children...horrifying.
