There has been a media frenzy about a group of Brits who travelled abroad and behaved disgracefully last week. The Daily Mail described them as "an embarrassment to the whole country". The Guardian called them "a sad inditement [sic] of our youth". The group of four have even been commented on by the Prime Minister.
So what is all the fuss about? The four men from Dorking, who are all in their late teens and early 20s, flew to the Greek island of Rhodes to celebrate the upcoming marriage of one of them. What ensued was a disgrace to stag parties everywhere.
They stayed in a villa owned by Stavros Kakapandas, who said, "I couldn't believe the behaviour of these boys. They didn't smash the place up. They made their bed in the morning. They didn't even shout any bawdy suggestions to my beautiful daughter Maria, who works as a maid here. I was really surprised."
Friend of the group, Johnny Colon, was also disappointed. "When I saw the photos they put up on the internet when they got back, I was expecting to see strippers, wild times, you know. But they just had photos of a trip to some poncey art gallery they went to."
Air stewardess Eva Buttokova was serving on the plane they flew over on. "Most British men are disgusting and abusive. But these four didn't try to grope me, didn't shout anything, they just quietly sipped their ginger beers. I didn't think they were British at all, to be honest."
Editor of the Sun newspaper said, "What a bunch of pussies! They should've been shagging their way round the Med, getting trollied. What a facking disgrace!"
Prime Minister David Cameron said, "This is a national embarrassment. These holiday makers give the impression that we are a soft touch, a pushover, that we are not a country of loud-mouthed hooligans. If news gets out, that could attract more foreigners to this country, which is the last thing we want."
