Tripping Along The Ledge


Book smart v street smart

Book smart v Street smart
Congratulations to bright sparks James, Will, Leo, George, Jonathan, Chris and Edward from King’s School in Grantham, Lincolnshire who were all admitted to Mensa this week. Thanks to their cooperation in posing for this press photograph, published in all the English papers today, every knuckleheaded teenage bully in Lincolnshire and beyond knows who they are, what they look like and where they go to school. Yes, bullies have self-esteem issues. But I’m not sure how much consolation that will to these lads when they’re hanging from the monkey bars by the underpants. Kudos gentlemen, kudos.

    Everybody hates a swot, especially one or more who wears Calvin Klein underpants and a matching blazer.

    I’m not a knuckle-headed teen bully but if I was the second kid from the front would definitely a slap. At least the lad at the very back looks embarrassed.

    I’m guessing that at least two are lactose intolerant, one still wets the bed, all paint those little orcs in shops like the one on liffey street, (at a push) one could still be breast feeding, and if any of them have got the ‘shift’ yet, it’s long odds on a close call between Cuthbert and Walter at the back – the ‘wildmen’ of the group.
