Yesterday’s, err, “student protests” have got me thinking bout’ them Lakers. ‘Cause seriously, it did get just a little too hairy.
If you don’t understand this talk about Lakers, Urban Dictionary has a swell explanation:
How bout’ them Lakers?
A phrase used when the conversation has died. The goal is to start up a new conversation, either about the Lakers, or simply because it often comes off as a completely random phrase to the other person.
(Note: Lakers is short for LA Lakers, a US basketball team.)
‘Course I’m having utter difficulty getting away from the subject matter as it seems to be a sticking point in today’s press, and then all this talk about welfare reforms isn’t doing much good either. And I’ve already talked about the reforms a little.
Though, a twisted part of me can’t help but feel bemused at the Westminster Conservative HQ being overrun:
I have to admit that I’m not entirely happy with all the reforms going on as none of them will address the most basic issue at fault in the UK (and a lot of other countries): continually being in the pursuit of capitalistic gains is a task that will inevitably fail as it relies on the possession of infinite resources in a world/universe with only a finite amount of resources.
SO! How bout’ them Lakers?
