The coments people make
Virtualy all of the coments people make when they see a man on a penny farthing are positive. This makes a refreshing change as fellow cyclists will know this is not always the case when out riding.
In this section of the blog I have tried to list the best coments that I have received whilst out on the penny, I will add to as and when I get any variations on the coments received.
Best comments to date. 2/9/07 (Aston Villa 2 Chelsea 0) sorry about the football reference but I'm so pleased Villa were the first team this season to wipe the smug grin off Mourinhos face, as for Drogba what a big girls blouse. Anyway, back to the penny stuff...
1. "Nice bike mate, Halfords?"
I was out riding the penny when a fellow cyclist caught me up and offered the above question. At the time it made me laugh, lots. Thinking about it, although I still find it funny, he would have had some time to think of what to say, Still brilient though.
When people have less time to think about what to say they typicaly seem to come up with one or more of the following.
2. "Do a wheelie!" I've tried, it's not possible.
3. "Nice bike, can you juggle as well?" For whatever reason people seem to think I must be part of a circus.
4. "Hey, penny farthing." For those who know what one is.
5. "What the f*!k." For those who don't.
6. "What the f*!k, what the f*!k." A coment made by a suprised lad in London when first Kat rode past on her penny then me on mine.
7. "No way!"
8. "Jesus Christ!" No, it's just me.
More to follow as and when people coment...
