Dumb Ways to Die - lyrics made me LOL. Thanks for starting the week with humor :)

Loved both clips, especially the Dumb Ways to Die!

Have to say I'm totally grossed out at the thought of the fur coat.

male chest hair?! *shudder* I can't even image! Sheesh.

The living doll is crazy! She reminds me a bit of Lady Gaga though...the eclectic style.

Suko said...

Very eclectic post today, Tracy! Everything from shakin' your booty to beastly jackets, living dolls, and dumb ways to die!

The human doll is just creepy. But then if I did that, I'd be a zombie one or something like that, so I shouldn't talk. LOL

I've seen that ways to die vid. I thought it was funny.

Hi Tracy,

I saw the wedding clip on the BBC about 6am and was trying to stop from laughing out loud and waking hubbie. When I told him about it later, he didn't seem to find it particularly funny, although we generally share the same sense of humour ... I thought the best part,was when the two old dears got up and walked out, they provided more of a floor show than the rest of the congregation!!

Okay the hair thing grossed me out and the doll one creeped me out but the Metro announcement was too funny! Odd but funny. Think they got their point across?
