The British Are Coming!

Watch out USA the British are coming and you have been warned,

As US coast-to-coast crimewaves go, it is not in the league of Bonnie and Clyde. It lacks both violence and avarice and is further hindered by an overabundance of pre-publicity.

Undeterred, a couple of students from Cornwall are intent on making American criminal history by spending their summer breaking as many US laws as possible.

Ok so we are hardley coming to take back the colony ( I don't believe it just took me 5 goes to spell colony, it's in the title of the Blog FFS), but we are coming to make fun of your stupid laws.

This July, Richard Smith, 23, and Luke Bateman, 20, both from Cornwall, are planning to travel 18,000 miles across the land of the free while breaking as many of its ridiculous and arcane local laws as possible.

Smith told the Western Morning News that the pair will risk being arrested for falling asleep in a cheese factory in South Dakota and playing golf in the streets of Albany, New York. In Jonesborough, Georgia, they will attempt to drive local police mad by illegally saying "oh boy". Let's hope Downing Street is braced for the diplomatic storm.

Who would even think of making it illegal to walk across the street on your hands? I can see why from a safety point of view, but to go so far as to make it a law.

Who knows you may see this on telly as they are recording the whole thing, but unless some one tries to arrest them along the way. I don't think there will be much to watch, we will just have to see if tipping off the local fuzz in advance will be enuth for them, to get some attention.

So good the Guardian covered it twice, one, two.
