It's Not Exactly Graceland


I'm sure that when you think of visiting London there are lots of sights and attractions and areas you want to explore. Well, if you are making your travel plans for London, or you currently live there and have nothing to do for half your day, then why not stop by Amy Winehouse's old house in Camden. Yes, that's right. For the sum of $200, you can spend four hours touring Amy's home and see where she lived, worked and her favorite room to smoke crack. She liked the bathroom because of the windows. After you have enjoyed your contact high and the smell of spoiled food and soiled drug addicts, you will probably feel like a drink. No problem. Included in the price of your tour is a stop at the Hawley Arms which is Amy's favorite pub. At the pub you will be given a complimentary Amy Winehouse special. No, it isn't a beating upside your head or a free crack pipe, it is instead her favorite beverage which is vodka, bourbon, banana liqueur and Baileys.

If you can manage to keep that down, then why not head over to the shop where Amy bought her newspapers and junk food and which now sells Amy Winehouse t-shirts and other souvenirs like Amy Winehouse ballet slippers and beehive wigs. I wish this was all a joke, but I am completely serious.

I wouldn't pay $200 to spend 4 hours with Amy Winehouse herself.

Well, that's a disappointment. It doesn't come with a complimentary 8ball? Sheesh.

As if Camden Town wasn't enough of a tourist trap.

Wouldn't waste my money.

Her and all the wretched sadsacks that are desperate for trendiness have thoroughly put me off Camden, which I feel bad about given it was where I spent a huge part of my teens in. There and Portobello :(

What? No antibiotic shot and some Valtrex? How could you step into that house without basic neccesities like that? Next thing I know, you'll be telling me that men don't need a raincoat to keep their parts from rotting off after a night spent with her...

shut UP! are they really doing those tours? crazy.

Sporky said...

$200 DOLLARS?!?! Ugh....and that drink of hers sounds really gross. Can you imagine how bad it smelled when she threw it up? I wonder if you can still smell it in the carpet?

And to think you could do it for free when she was on her latest bender. Just waltz up to the front door and give it a ring and you had a chance of being ushered in for a front row view to the circus. Worked for a Rolling Stone writer in fact!

That price should also include a full body condom. ~shudder~

Lutefisk
A free body condom AND a free hepatitis shot. Preventions worth a pound of cure.

lutefisk said...

ardleigh--even better, they should pay each of us $200 for going.

It's nice that you're completely serious but this is still a joke.
