I am really learning to hate the Edinburgh Festival, and I don't even live there.

Fucking thing.

If it's anything like the 'festivals' we have here in redneck country, then I totally sympathize.

Take one small city.

Take about three times the population.

Invade every nice and normal pub.

Cover the city and surrounded by bastards trying their very hardest to fill your hands with leaflets.

Tourists vomiting outside your door at 5 in the morning, and Tourist busses verbally abusing buildings at 9 in the morning.

Hm. Drop the leaflets and replace the busses with pickup trucks and mud-covered SUV's and that's about right.

Edinburgh Festival
Edinburgh turns into a tourist-infested shithole long before the festival starts. Why is it that countries only export the most stupid people as tourists?

Some expressions the I hear too often:

"Gee, isn't it nice that they put the Castle so close to the train station and the shops" - this an American favourite

"What time does the one o'clock gun go off?"

As for the festival itself, it's denenerated from Art and Entertainment to Commercial Crap.
