Yesterday a random guy in a neighborhood said, "Now there's something you don't see everyday."

"I do," I replied.

i wonder if he expected a balloon-animal or something?
if so, this could be the most insidious example of the influence of unicycle/clown cult

The other night, riding home from my friend's house I got a "Get a life, faggot!" from some people in car..

My favorite was "Hey it's that f*ing guy!!!" from a few kids as I did a big pedal grab. A few minutes earlier they saw me ride a handrailing on a bridge.

Riding round Oxford yesterday, bout 4 chavs go past in a nova or a corsa or something and one of them leant out the window and said "Waaah, Weeer (and other strange noises, presumably to put me off), Fall Off, Waah". I almost did I was laughing so hard.

Loose.

Eng/US translation:

chav = uncouth youth
nova/corsa = small uninteresting cars, usually driven by "chavs" who have added a sound system worth more than and heavier than the car

LMAO

P.S. Cheers for the language conversion S7ev0, I kind of forgot about the whole society difference thing.

Oh, and ref the chav cars issue. They also put on silly decoration, to make their cars look 'well mint innit'. E.g.

Where does unicycling fit into the category of "insanity"? Please entertain this question, it really gets me going some days...
Hmm... One of the reasons that I've taken up this "insane" sport is to keep me sane!

go figure.....

Right as I approached my car I met a man coming towards me from the parking lot. As we passed he said:

"Put those together and you'll have something."

Clever comment. Clearly he already knew where my other wheel was.

Okay, yesterday's quote was nothing special, but I'm adding it here because I thought up a great new comeback afterwards.

While crossing the biggest intersection on my commute, I pass a bicyclist waiting in the left turn lane for his light to turn green. He says "You're missing something." I gave him the standard, "I don't miss it at all."

But within the next 20' I thought, Instead of two skinny 700c wheels, he sees one giant, fatter wheel. So for Coker riders, a new variation on the "Where's your other wheel" and similar:

"I'm compensating!"

Some won't get it, but too bad for them.
