Way to rub it in, mates.

Kelcy from London snapped this photo while this year’s Glastonbury Festival. “And yes, it was amazing,” she says. “Poor Tom!”

Our mate Tom (whose 12) couldn't make it this year, please text him and tell him what a great time you're having!!! THANKS

UPDATE: Prue from Manchester reports spotting a similar — slightly more aggressive — message at Glastonbury, too. “The crossed out bits were the ‘just ex’ girlfriend’s phone number and name (so one could send her an abusive message on Facebook),” Prue says. “Lovely.”

Our mate Jack was't allowed to come cos his

    While you’re at it, sign him up for some magazine subscriptions, order him a Chinese food delivery, and–why not–send him a call-girl. That would be hi-larious!

      I heard they don’t eat Chinese food in the UK. Over there it’s all fried kebab and eel pies.

      Seriously? Of course we eat Chinese food.
      What we eat the most of is curries.
      In fact the curry is actually now the national dish of the UK.

      I’ve often heard British people say no one grasps ironic humor the way they do. I’m inclined to agree literally.

      Stigmatization: n.
      After passage of the Revised Debtors’ Prisons Act of 2043, a process used for remediation of persons convicted of over-aggressive panhandling. Constitutionality subsequently upheld by the Supreme Court on the basis that although the process is cruel, owing to certain religious traditions, prevalent notably in the Philippines, it is not unusual.

    It’s okay Mo® – texts are free to receive in the UK. Poor Tom might suffer a severe case of jealousy, but there wouldn’t be any financial repercussions for him.

      So do you have to pay to receive text messages in the States?
      That’s madness. Yes here in the UK receiving texts is free, unless its those ones that have ‘saucy ladies’ on the other end.

    • #4.5   anglophile bang

      Well, it depends on your plan. Here you can pay for unlimited texting or pay less for a limited amount of incoming and outgoing texts.

      I think we can safely say, however, that you do not receive any texts free. It all gets paid somehow, just like health care.

      Yes, unfortunately you have to pay to receive texts in the US, but you can pay for unlimited texting as part of your plan. Verizon (my carrier) only lets you block I think 15 numbers, so if you had a situation like this… you’d just have to field the texts, and block 15 of them in case they sent multiples, unless you already pay for unlimited texting.

      Typical missing of the point by Amanda.

      Nothing is free…the costs are just buried somewhere else in what you pay for services.

      Somewhere they may pay more for “basic” services, and receive unlimited “free” texting whether they text a great deal or not. Those who don’t text much end up paying for a service they don’t use, while those who may text a lot have theirs subsidized by those who pay for but do not use the service…we call that Socialism, but it works out in the end.

    Sucks when you’re floating in a tin can, and can’t make it to Glastonbury. Funnily enough, Alexander Graeme Bell used tin cans, didn’t he? Just suspend your disbelief there, and also imagine him frantically calling, “Can you hear me Major Tom? The circuit’s dead, there’s something wrong!” Though just what kind of circuit a piece of string has, I’ll let the quantum physicists, or who(m)ever explain. That is all.

      by the Chapel Perilous of contemporary String Theory ?

      Vonnegut may have been prescient in his title choice of Cat’s Cradle.

    I like the non-sequitur question in the middle (“whose 12?”). I’m guessing it’s Tom’s son or daughter that’s 12 tears old. Would a festival goer, otherwise, have 12 year-old mates? Or are they asking whose twelver is sitting there, just out of the frame?

    BTW – How does a bag of cocks come into existence?
