I stayed up...





watching the UFC championships(a sort of no holds barred fighting) on Bravo last night.
Two grown men enter the Octogan and wallop seven shades of crap out of each other in five minute rounds. Sometimes the welter weights can be a bit lumbersome, but last nights fights were very good, well except BJ Penn-who I had money on.
This is a splendid way to spend a Sunday evening. It is drama at its very best. There was blood, fear, fury, kicking, eyes swelling shut, a broken hand, sweat, adrenaline, money exchanged hands( there and here, I called two fights perfectly-go on the Dean of Mean! but stupid BJ Penn let me down by beng fat and not furious, stupid BJ, he can't grapple for toffee and yet he always ends up on canvas looking slightly surprised. I mean he is super flexible, so why can he not grapple? I just don't understand it)
Anyway there here was cheering clapping and much swearing. Oh there was also Martinis, beer and crisps. I get so over excited by fights that I end up screaming at the telly and jumping up and down on the spot. It must be how people felt watching the Gladiators of old.
Naturally today I am feeling very delicate. So I am going now to gobble aspirn and drink copious amounts of coffee.

One might consider that kind of behaviour slightly off the wall if one weren't to think about watching a game of football, for example.

One might, but then one would be chancing his arm.

It is said that Roman noblewomen paid handsomely to be serviced by those gladiators. I expect they looked a bit better than some of the ox-like brutes you see boxing rings, though

Boxing! Fantastic! Grown men getting paid to beat each other unconscious. Have you heard there's a new Rocky flick coming out? Bet it's pants.

I don't know about that Mynah. While I like a nice looking man myself, there is something to be said for the battered, nose flattened, battle scarred head of a brute. It is like women who go out with the likes of Mike Tyson and fall over themselves for Vin Diesel. I'm not sure the attraction has anything to with looks per se, just the sheer brute strength and all empowering maleness that makes up a fighter. I reckon that is what the noble women were after, a bit of masculine savagery that rattled their overies. You can be sure they never went near the losers.

Good Morning Foot Eater. Yes, do we really want to see Sly Stallone trying to fight? He is a little long in tooth is he not, although in good shape for a man of his years.

Roman noblewomen used to use strigil scrapings as a skin cream, dirty little middens. Because you're worth it.

Those fighters look gay. I personally have been battered by bigger looking lumps than them. Pshaw!

Why has Dr Evil Banned me from his site? It says I'm forbidden! Verbotten! Kerplunked! Kaputen sine die!

Is his site still there?

I'm banned too Docky, but I wasn't this morning, technical difficulties I would imagine.
Say are you okay? You seem a bit out of sorts of late.

Nope, none of them are close relatives of mine. Humans aren't really designed to withstand being punched in the face. I would much rather see them get kicked in the arse, which could take the punishment.

Tricky one to referee though. And how would they train for it?

Only if they were bollock naked and wrestling in flour.

The UFC guys aren't gay, Docky... just because they like wrestling and sweating mostly naked doesn't make them gay. That Chuck Liddell is all man... I've seen him around town in bars and such -- the fellow has a chihuahua he carries with him. Oh wait, that might make him gay, mightn't it?!
