:D Yeah, no just putting your foot down on the ground, at the lights..

Few weeks ago when it was cold, dark & icy, I saw someone on a unicycle, but it was an ordinary size bicycle wheel..I suppose that might make it a bit easier, but still :shock:

A bloke on the radio this morning rang i some competition for valentine's day

During the conversation he mentioned being married 35 years and was asked how did he survive that long.

He answered " Just do as your told " :D .

I remember a while back there was an accident in Walthamstow where a bus had run over a cyclist and members of the public stepped in and lifted the bus off the injured cyclist. The comments in the Evening Standard online were full of praise for the members of the public and for the safety of the cyclist. When it came out that the cyclist was actually riding a unicycle the comments turned to vitriol to the tune of "what a ****ing ****. Fancy riding a ****ing unicycle in rush-hour traffic. The bus should have flattened him and drove off. "

There are so many funny aspects to the story, I had to check it wasn't April today.

Echo that - there are few things more entertaining than seeing your cat's first interaction with snow. It can only improve if you can choose a specific Dutch pornstar to compare it too; kudos to any cat-lover that gets a feline Terri Summers.

On my own banal note - being able to notch-up another hole on my belt from weight-loss, plus getting a wonderfully rare oppo to watch a sparrow-hawk perched on my window-stick bird feeder about 3 metres from me in my living-room; he sat there for a good 30 seconds...stunning. :thup:

My missus wanted to iron my son's work shirt before we left for work this morning but we were running a little late.

I came in to the kitchen where she was standing at the ironing board waiting for the iron to heat up and she was singing to herself "Come on you irons " :D

Ageing,
I'm pretty sure if you installed CCTV inside your gaffe you could flog all the footage to Ch. 5.

:D

I know mate, my son who had witnessed me screaming after wiping my arse with the bleach wipe instead of the baby wet wipe thingy a few weeks ago and he was watching TV the other night some nature documentary about the north pole I think.

Anyway a penguin was being chased by a polar bear or something and my son says to me

" Hey dad that penguin looks just like you did running out of the bathroom with your pants around your ankles and yelping " :D
