People in the UK don’t play baseball. The only reason you would own a baseball bat in Britain is because it’s a great, cheap weapon to use to get up to no good. After three days of rioting in and around London, the prices of baseball bats on Amazon— since you can’t just roll up into most sporting good stores and pick one up— have gone through the roof.
Better get those with overnight shipping before people calm down and flash mob rioting isn’t cool anymore.
Also, I was amused last night listening to some blokes on the BBC World Service last night talking about why they were rioting, and the answer was just “Because we can, who’s gonna really stop us?” Actually, the answer was nearly unintelligible, and I thought it was funny that they sounded just like the chavs on Little Britain and Catherine Tate. So it was more like “I ain’t bovvered, if I’n roit get pairs of trainers and tellies fa’free, why not innit”. Or something like that.
