    "Not for public transport"

    ...unless you want to look like a madman for laughing suddenly aloud to yourself uncontrollably.
    (This is true for all in this series.)

    "The best! Laughed so hard I peed myself"

    Love all the " Ricky Guides to..." this one especially. Listened while at work at almost got fired for laughing so hard. Would have been worth losing job over. Fucking hell as Ricky would say.

    "Stupid funny!!!"

    This series of discussions makes me laugh out loud no matter where I am. I sometimes feel a little sorry for Karl, but he holds his own for the most part. While he's a little out there, I sometimes find myself thinking, wow, what an interesting way to look at things. I'm sure this series was put together to share Karl's strange take on life with the rest of the world, but I feel that Ricky sometimes forgets that. He often verbally attacks Karl for being an idiot. But Steve brings balance to the situation by insisting that he is interested to hear what Karl has to say. I love the dynamic between the three of them.
