I posted this the other day in the "Incident on a plane" thread. There was a lot of activity there and this priceless gem from Benedict Cumberbatch may have been overlooked. Or people just didn't like it. But, I refuse to believe the latter is true. This had me laughing so hard it hurt. This is about shit, but just not the human kind. So, in case you missed it and haven't seen it... :-)
OMG, I'm glad you re-posted this, as I did not see it the first time. Hilarious! The Empress is a famous old hotel in our capital (B.C.'s). I haven't stayed there, but have imbibed and eaten in their bar and restaurant. I hope they saw fit to give that poor guy a break and lift his life time ban!
Since BC is my home and the Empress is my favorite hotel, this is THE MOST hilarious story I've ever heard. My next stay in said hotel will be better for it, and I'll always wonder if I'm in the Pepperoni/sea gull room!
Hey, welcome to a fellow B.C.er (is there another term for someone from B.C., ie, B.C.ite?"). I love the lovely old Empress myself, although I haven't stayed there. If I ever do, I might just request the Seagull/Pepperoni room!
B.C. is a beautiful province and definitely worth a visit, although I'm a little biased having been born and raised here. The southwest coast and the islands, including Vancouver Island are amazing, but you need some time to explore. Vancouver is a pretty cool city too, if you are into cities.
