Vinnie Jones Fracas with ‘Roly-Poly’




This is the best story about it (I love all the British terminology).  In England when you get a pint glass smashed in your face, it’s called ‘glassed’ There is also more picts and video.

Great PR. Now we’ll get more tourism from overgrown British yobs who want to come and get into a genuine wild west bar finght.

Well it is Wileys! The dullest bar in town.

I was reading some of the comments.

“He’s a common Yob. The only difference that separates him from the rest of the yobs, is the fact he has dosh. Grow up! Pathetic!”

Can anyone translate that for me?

He’s Juggernaut, for Dog’s sake! You almost HAVE TO punch him in the face just to say you did. Just like if I saw Will Smith, Ernest Borgnine, Sean Connery, Rosie Perez, Stephen Hawking….

“Yob” is “Boy spelled backwards. it’s a commonly used British term that describes troubled youths.
I’m guessing here, but “dosh” probably means money or fame.
If you really want to see some weird British slang, look up Cockney rhiming schemes. Bonus points if you know the scene from a movie featuring Vinnie Jones where he uses one.
The British and Americans are two peoples separated by a common language.

I would probably spit on Hawking, just for writing a boring book that no one understands.

Ghost of Dude I’m going to guess Snatch.

It was Lock, Stock and two smoking snatches.

AG – you sure are fiesty today, did you get into the bacon again?

#11 Ghost of Dude on 12.09.08 at 2:43 pm

Ghost of Dude I’m going to guess Snatch.

We have a winner. Unfortunately, Angry Guy ate all the bacon I was saving as a prize.
Bonus points if you know which cockney rhime he used.

You have no idea.
These pretzels are making me thirsty.

No idea Ghost, which one?

In the scene where he has the dude by the tie and is interrogating him as he drives down the street, he askes the guy (IIRC Mullet is his name) if he’s telling pork pies (lies).

If I was one of the guys in the fight, I’d be thankful I didn’t end up having my head repeatedly slammed in a car door.
