Fucking great filum, I shit myself when I first saw it
as a kid i'd be frightened to look under the bed
I was 20 odd when I first saw it
locked up were you?
Monkey Magic I was scared of as a kid
Ah Monkey, they couldn't air most of the stuff that was on back then
I remember being mascot for my old mans team in the Merthyr League Cup. A big deal back then. Final was played on Penydarren Park. Gone all a bit Wembley now. You can rent half a pitch for 40 quid an hour.
Anyway, it was a big deal in 1983 and I’m 6, going on 7, and I’m mascot. We’re waiting in the Swansea Road Club before making our way to Penydarren Park. Usual pop and crisps. Monkey Magic comes on the TV. I am so shit scared of these chinks, they might as well be aliens, and the 2 other mascots are laughing their heads off. All I remember is my old man, an ex-boxer, going bonkers on me for embarrassing him.
God help if I was Gareth Thomas....
bed for stanty and the dog fucked
If City win today I'll be up all night tonight. Still depressed after last week end.
Showing your age Nid
The best bit for me was the singing (I wanna go home) whilst comparing scars. A few years later I needed an exploratory operation regarding gall stones and they opened me up completely leaving me with a gorgeous scar from the mid point just below the ribs following the bottom ribs to my side. I've maintained to my kids and subsequently my grand kids that it was from a shark bite. Holds their attention though as I recollect heroic exploits in the water
I was hoping for a sneaky one there
