    Ok, so I had to look that up – “what’s hot at Butlin’s Skegness?” jumps at you on the website page “pampering treats for grown-ups in the spa” booms the reply. My mind boggles . . . and you took your family there???

    Apparently this means ‘the spa is full of Pampers’:

    Holiday Watchdog

    This is not going to end well.

    You expect us to believe an important, intelligent, jet-setting modern-day lady like the LTLP decided on Butlins Skegness?

    That’s the sort of place a stressed out, end-of-her-tether, emotionally exhausted woman would go for a rest so she could hand over her three demanding childr….. Oh, I see!

    As Rog would put it ‘ “trip of a lifetime – never again!”. Although I’m sure you’re well braced and having a marvellous time.

  5. Got your postcard, Jonny. I see you’ve lost some weight…

    Do you have a banjo with you? Are you wearing red coats?

    See, here’s where that cultural divide becomes more of a massive chasm (which shall never be crossed. At least not without a whole crew of engineers and at least one roll of duct tape). Butlins Skegness sounds like:

    1) Punch line of joke that includes the noises oooh and errrrr.

    2) a dry and inedible cake given to teething children – probably because they can’t do anything about it (and when they grow up to be mass-murderers you’ll know why now, won’t you?)

    3) a bit too Enid Blytonny to be real.

    [note: I’m not a total idiot, I do know where Skegness is, but combining Skegness with Butlins is a bit much, don’t you think? Ah you old world Brits – this is why we patronize you on one hand while hiring you to do voice overs on insurance commercials on the other – because we feel strongly that anyone speaking with a British accent is more intelligent and trustworthy than a person one actually knows… come to think of it… there’s a compelling logic behind that…]

    What’s wrong with Minehead?

    I can’t to wait to hear…or maybe this might the first trouble-free holiday ever because the LTLP’ chose it.

    Speaking of Brits doing voice-overs for insurance advertising – whatever has happened to the Geico Gecko anyhow? Did they fire him for sounding too much like Tony Hayward?

  11. Linda says:

    I’ve never heard of either.

    ‘Just how long does the trip of a lifetime last?’

    ‘A lifetime.’

    Come back Jonny, all is forgiven…

    As a matter of fact, they did fire him, but it wasn’t because of BP. The gecko guy called up a Tea Party group and left them a voicemail message calling them idiots. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/04/21/geico-fires-dc-douglas-vo_n_546038.html
