Word on the Street The Most Ridiculous Things Overheard in London Synopsis

Based on Time Out magazine's most popular column, Word on the Street brings together the best of the most ridiculous, bizarre, near-the-knuckle and sweet utterances by Londoners as heard by Londoners. The collection of over 200 quotes will cover such topics as Family & Parenting, Fashion & Style, Eating, Sex, London and feature insights such as: On London - How would I describe Wimbledon Village? It's like Jack Wills threw up; Everywhwere - Herne Hill is great except you can't get a Diptyque candle south of the river West Ham isn't short for West Hampstead? Are you sure? Croydon is like a horse. It smells, everybody thinks it's dangerous, but ultimately it's Incredible On Food - Going to McDonalds for a salad is like going to a prostitute for a hug. Even Delia says it's okay to cheat. Pre-chopped onions, my friend. No more tears. White bread is like the ninja of the food world. It's a silent killer. Isn't cauliflower just the ghost of Broccoli? On Fashion & Style - That guy was obviously a drug dealer. Nobody wears white shorts like that anymore She seems like a nice person, but she smells like a Fisherman's Friend It's hair suicide weather. There are a bunch of Tina Turner's walking around Covent Garden.
