10 somewhat naughty pics from our London trip

I thought I’d continue with my U.K.-lovefest and present 10 photos from our last trip to London, in which we roamed around, ate dessert, and made juvenile jokes about the human anatomy. Which, if you’ve been paying attention, isn’t all that different from what we do at home.

  1. Long-necked giraffe, Giraffe Cafe, London.

    This is in no way Freudian.

  2. Checking out the under-carriage of the London Eye.

    If the bottoms were made of glass, things would have gotten really interesting.

  3. Rand and Richard are scandalized, but I don’t remember why.

    One can only guess.

  4. Humps sign, near Holborn.

    Only the English would be courteous enough to provide a street sign for this.

  5. Recreation of the Statue of David, Victoria and Albert Museum.

    I'm starting to notice a theme.

  6. It’s time to play “English dessert or sex act?”

    I love a good sticky toffee pudding. #hopethatisnotaeuphemism

  7. Quiet contemplation while holding his nuts, on the River Thames.

    You only wish you looked this good when holding YOUR nuts.

  8. Cement sculpture, Victoria and Albert Museum.

    "Bad concrete doggie! Look what you did!"

  9. Herman ze German sausage sign

    Are you effing kidding me? It wasn't phallic enough without the moustache-rim?

  10. T-shirt, as seen on a vegetarian, London.

    Enough said.

  • Haha! Great pics!

  • Well done, I saw, well done. 🙂

  • What I MEANT to say was:

    Well done, I say, well done. Ugh…typing.

    • Everywhereist

      I got what you intended the first time. 🙂 But “I saw” works too. It’s kind of deep, really. 🙂

  • Herman ze German may have just made my week – hilarious. Apparently, the Seattle Center is going to install its own “London Eye” in April. Maybe we can request that they be all glass capsules, no steel.

      If the bottoms are transparent, I’m not going to wear a skirt on that thing. EVER.

  • Agree with Bromley. Herman ze German is way over the top. Now I’m off the the humps.

  • That cement sculpture is hysterical! Whose brilliant idea was that?

  • Wow, that’s all I really have to say about this post!

  • Funny pictures 🙂 I think you would enjoy the speed hump signs up here (Norway) as well. They say “fartsdump”.
