You Should Be Watching: An Idiot Abroad

So you've got this friend. He's a good friend and a very nice guy, but he's a bit stubborn in his way of thinking.

He can look completely bored standing in front of the great pyramid but stare, infinitely fascinated, at a baby cow trying to climb a ridge. More importantly, he's willing to try anything once, though he'll complain the whole time if he isn't liking the experience and describe in great detail why its dumb. Ricky Gervais has such a friend and delights in "pushing him into a corner and poking him with a stick" to see what happens next.
