Mornington Crescent!



Do HN users outside of the UK get the surreality and humour of this entire conversation?

You can tell it's currently morning in the UK and night-time in the USA.


No. It's a well-known fact that surreality and humour are geographically isolated to the British Isles. Though the French did get a sort of surrealesque surrealism through cultural cross-contamination at one point, though it's clearly inferior to the real article despite their vigorous claims to the contrary.


L'œil existe à l'état sauvage.


I'm about a mile away from Mornington Crescent station, and I still have no idea what's going on.


Well, I was dying to find out what numberwang and then I realised it's a joke.


There is actually a somewhat similar game on National Public Radio. I forget what it's called though...


It comes on right after "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me". It's called "4".
