Excusez-moi, mais est-ce une baguette de pain dans votre pantalon ou êtes-vous tout simplement heureux de me voir? This week, in honor of France and all its fries, toast, and rolls, I'll be retracing the infamous steps taken post-Gumball Rally in 2001, starting with old fumble hump here. For the full unabridged and unexpurgated account of Dave England, a/k/a Dr. England and Mr. Darf, and his misadventures abroad, I roughly shove you in the direction of the late great tome jackass: 10 years of stupid. There you can read all about the poo, the door handle, and the retaliatory pee that sent Darf into a tailspin back to the USA instead of the train bound for Amsterdam that he was supposed to be on the next morning. It is one of the many legendary after hours and on the road jackass tales that still gets laughed and disputed about years later. For the inane record "The Hunchback" segment is one of the jackass TV breed that I positively adore, much like "The American Werewolf (in London)" and a certain green menace I'll be sharing tomorrow.
