Huliganov’s 2nd North Experience #10 – Taxi Ride to Manhattan Island (purple language warning)
Original playout date: 29 December 2007
This is a new york yellow cab driver, and I won’t identify him, probably couldn’t anyway. But he was very chatty, and it was interesting to listen to and keep for posterity some of the things he said.
In this case, the cabby recounts how he was nearly killed by a Muslim he thought was his friend when he said something careless about Mohammed.
You definitely want to listen to this oratory. If you don’t listen to it, you won’t believe it. Certainly not for anyone who objects to swearing.
Quote of the clip: Ya see ah’m British, and I like to tink like an English man. An I tell people, I say let me tell you something – the British royalty has been knowan to get rid of fuckin people, very easily, from time immemorial. They’re the fuckin’ experts at killin’.
