Visiting the Taj Mahal is one of the ”Things Not To Do Before You Die”September 17th, 2008 - 6:41 pm ICT by ANI
London, Sept 17 (ANI): The Taj Mahal may be one of the Seven Wonders of the World but a new hilarious new book suggests ”not to visit the place before dying”, for the experience will almost certainly end in disappointment.
”Can”t Be Arsed: 101 Things Not To Do Before You Die,” by Richard Wilson, TV comedy producer behind hits including ”Never Mind The Buzzcocks” and ”Have I Got News For You”, shows why sitting on your chair is a better option, reports the Sun.
Below are some of the ”Can”t Be Arsed” snippets:
Behind Taj Mahal is one of the most polluted river in the world - Yamuna. 57 per cent of New Delhi’’s waste is dumped in it.
The Pyramids are right next to the ugly urban sprawl of Cairo - a big disappointment.
It’’s a 6,000-mile journey, 12 thrombotic hours on a plane followed by a bladder-bursting seven-hour bus ride.
Jumping out of a plane for fun must seem so strange to those people who were forced to do it in a real combat situation and would never ever do it again for all the money in the world.
Go White-Water Rafting
It’’s a favourite corporate weekend activity for city bankers, ad men and home-grown terrorist organisations - the 7/7 bombers did a lot of their best blue-sky thinking on a white-water rafting weekend.
Thailand can kill you in so many different ways with malaria, dengue fever, Japanese encephalitis, bird flu and of course the tsunami.
Have Sex In An Aeroplane
There’’s not enough room to urinate in an aeroplane toilet, never mind make the beast with two backs. Having a cigarette in there afterwards is much more daring - you can probably go to prison for that. (ANI)
