I was recently favored with the old classic, “Hey mate, your wheels are turning.” Unfortunately the young drunk lass rushed her delivery and failed to make the most of her opportunity. If done properly the “hey mate” serves to get the cyclist attention, and then the “your wheels are tuPublish Postrning” is delivered as the denouement of frivolous annoyance. Hers entire sentence came out in one rushed statement. It was a shame to see the young folk of today looking so pathetically inept at the ancient and venerable art of annoying strangers on bikes.
Thankfully someone redeemed themselves tonight with the simple and unfathomable statement, “Hey you, get a horse.” It’s imponderable and meaningless, and as far as invective goes it’s actually quite harmless. Listen up random pedestrians and juvenile car-loads, the bar has been raised.
