DUMBASS TOURIST WHO CARVED HIS AND GF’S INITIALS INTO THE ROMAN COLOSSEUM OFFERS BS EXCUSE
So the news this week has been fraught with heat waves, bad sports refs, sharks everywhere and the usual sort of fare. Well, except for the heat. That’s just a new usual. But I was hesitant to comment on the news of the dumbass who carved his and his girlfriend’s initials into the Roman Colosseum recently. For one, I just can’t be more upset than I already am with the younger generations these days. But then I saw the latest info on the snafu stupidity, and his lame excuse has my outrage dander falling like dandruff.
31-YEAR-OLD DUMBASS DIDN’T SEEM TO KNOW WHY HE WAS EVEN VISITING THE ROMAN COLOSSEUM
The dumbass has the name of Danailov Dimitrov, and he’s 31 years old. You’d think that if you’re old enough to travel from England all the way to Italy with your girlfriend as tourists, you’d know a little teeny tiny bit about why you even bothered to visit in the first place. Sure, Rome is a major city, and it’s filled with almost endless things for any tourist to spend time, well, touring. But the Roman Colosseum? Why would you visit the Roman Colosseum? Because it’s beautiful, old and full of history; that’s why.
DIMITROV DUMBASS LATER IDENTIFIED, SAID HE HAD NO IDEA THE ROMAN COLOSSEUM WAS AN “ANTIQUITY”
So it doesn’t quite pass muster that a dumbass would go all that way with his partner to see old things (like the Roman Colosseum) and then carve their initials into it. In olden days, that was how graffiti worked, before aerosol paint cans and superglue decals. So graffiti on landmarks is bad no matter what, right? But this dumbass was later identified by the Italian military police. So Dimitrov had to come up with some rationale to explain his historic, defacing behavior. So what was his excuse? He had no idea of the “monument’s antiquity.” Aka, he had no idea how old it was.
So what the hell were you doing there visiting it? Didn’t you even see the movie, Gladiator?
