OK, I'm off to Wales on Friday for my last bit of gravity fuelled fun of the year and after being stung by your comments about me taking a van up the hill, I've decided on human powered ascending instead. I just need two willing volunteers who think they're good climbers:

As a reward you get a free road ride round The Valleys afterwards :wink:

    Not a bad idea, I suppose it'd be like a pack of lycra-clad huskies pulling a sled :) Should be no shortage of offers as they get to hang out with the cool gang and we get free uplifts. Win-win situation.

    Yup. Can you manage a beer on the way back from Swansea? It's only a 10 mile detour off the M4.

    There is a fundamental flaw in that suggestion - 'a beer'.

    You're forgetting- Stevo is a supreme athlete and won't want to impact his performance on Friday

    I call it carb loading. Or maybe ballast.

    Having a beer gives him an excuse when he falls off :P

    I'd love to, but if the police catch you "falling" on the sheep again, I don't want to be an accessory to the crime.

    I was absolutely sure at the time that they were Welsh ladies wearing real wool coats.

  • Looks like Stevo is just trying to engineer the opportunity to stare at a couple of male backsides for a bit.

    Yeah, so you tested the whole flock just to make sure, right? Good job your jury all came from Wales and didn't see anything wrong with it.

    Though by the end Stevo needed help with the 'uplift'

    As we have precidential law in the UK, this could open up sheep to a whole load of abuse right across the country...hang on, there's something deeply coincidental and prophetic in there...I'm going away to think about that for a while...

    I guess that's a bit like Ken Dodd getting off tax evasion charges all those years ago - the Inland Revenue made the classic mistake of having him tried by a jury of his peers - in Liverpool :D

    Which gave rise to the worlds only tax joke:
    - Have you heard that Ken Dodd's got two new Diddy Men?
