Technical build 3/10

Political correctness 1/10

Excellent p155 take Priceless



I'm just amazed "the Donald" still has time to post on bike radar as I'd thought the Donald would be busy sending kill teams out.

Or is it just me see a likeness in political leaning? :wink:

    wikipedia description of the pointy hats...
    The pointed hat was worn by clowns and jugglers who wanted to portray clumsiness or stupidity during medieval times. Because of this, pointed hats were used when vexing criminals. The criminals were forced to wear pointed hats and walk through the streets, while people threw rotten vegetables at them, spat on them, and insulted them.

    I feel honoured and humbled to receive the accolade of a thread on my avatar.
    I'd like to thank my manager, my agent, my partner, children and family for all their support. A special mention shoild go to Rick Chasey and Surrey Commuter for their inspiration. If not for them I would not be circulating in such esteemed company.

    I thank you.


    Note
    The Bike Radar police have asked me to remove the wording. Which would mean it loses its p155 taking message.
    New one coming up.

    Shall we start a petition to keep Goo's avatar?

    1. Free speech
    2. Artistic merit in a desert of blandness, conformity and political correctness.
    3. Fair comment.

    Blimey Goo, " Bravo" originated in 18th C Italy and shouldn't be used by any right thinking, speaking English person. You'll be having shop signs in Celt, Welsh and Polish next ;-)


    "Good Show" is a more English congratulatory phrase.

    not enough room for that much text, unless the smiley goes, which'd change the intent - he's smiling because he's an infiltrator, and he's just spiked the klanburgers with anthrax

    Now an homage to comrade Corbyn.... who I think is a hero for a certain person on here.

    it's a bit plain after the previous one, though the dialectical ambiguity of the corbyn/israel juxtaposition offers scope to wind up completely different sectors :D
