I'd Love To See This For Real ...

This is pretty funny. What would have passed through this woman's mind when she was putting on the helmet?* I mean, for goodness sake!

* No jokes about 'the pavement' being the last thing to pass through her mind after she crashes!

hello there bevis. i am seeing you all around. today in the paper there was mention of labour's homeland security spokesman, arch bevis. then today driving in east bentleigh, i passed bevis street.

you are ubiquitous.

so i guess this woman in the pic has her helmet on wrong, ie the bit she's looking out of should be where her neck goes?

also, why am i nasty friend? but i see i am in good company so i can take it.

also, i am so depressed. geelong lost tonight.

i am doing my blog rounds like a night nurse before i go to bed.

goodnight. your temperature is fine, and breathing normal.

MG: You read about Uncle Arch, eh? *

Bevis Street, Bentleigh East, was named after my family, much like Ramsey Street on Neighbours was named after some of the original residents. **

'Ubiquitous' is actually the original latin translation for 'Bevis'***, so well done to you for stumbling across that little nugget.****

The woman in the pic is indeed doing what you describe. What makes it funnier is that you don't seem totally convinced that you've correctly surmised her error, but fear not - you are smarter than she.

You may be a 'nasty friend', but the emphasis is definitely on the 'friend', so I hope that softens the blow.

I also can't say I will be totally supportive of your Geelong's-loss-related depression, as I was happy than the Swans won that particular game. Born and raised in a briar patch in Sydney, me. Out of the teams left in the finals, I'd prefer Sydney to win. I know that won't win me many brownie points here, but there you go. No one said loving me wouldn't be complicated. (In fact, that's a direct quote from the vows at Wifey's and my wedding.)

Thank you for visiting me on your rounds. I appreciate you checking my temperature, but could you please remove this thermometer now? It's starting to be a pain in my ... well, you get the idea.

* My lawyers have advised me to state uncategorically that Arch Bevis is absolutely no relation to yours truly.

** My lawyers have advised me to state uncategorically that this is a complete fabrication of the truth.

*** My lawyers have advised me to state uncategorically that this is also an utter lie. Honestly, I don't know why I keep them around! Talk about a pack of buzz-kills!

**** No, not that kind of 'nugget'!

Cotton: I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic here, or if you really want the feature in question (to stop all the blog spam, most likely), so I'll tackle both possibilities:

1) Hahaha, yes I know - annoying isn't it. Sorry about the hassle! You know me - useless as always! LOL.

2) It's quite easy. Just go to 'Settings' and then 'Comments'. Ensure that the sixth item ("Show word verification for comments?") is ticked as 'Yes'. Save changes. Republish entire blogsite. Pour yourself a whisky. Sip from glass. Relax. Voila! You should now have Word Verification working on your blog, and all visitors to your site can be as annoyed by you as you were by me (if indeed you were actually being sarcastic).

Personally, I believe that the reason Geelong lost that game was because the people in that neck of the woods wear their helmuts that way normally. (That being said, I do have friends in Geelong!)
Sydney just wanted it more and I was thrilled to see them kick that goal in the final minute. That being said, I hate Sydney.
