Nice One Winston Pigeon

It turns out the government has it all wrong. So much for their clearly misplaced focus on investment in broadband, it’s pigeons they should be putting their money into.

Those who check me on Twitter will have heard me Tweet about this already, but thanks to some scarily fit South African pigeon called Winston, there is proof at last that pigeons are faster than broadband. Nice one. Chuffed as. Pigeon power wins out after all. He thrashed their arses big time.

Winston managed to carry a 4GB memory stick across SA faster than they did, and they didn’t have to carry a memory stick. Kid you not. I’ve only ever managed a 2GB stick, and that was only to Richmond. A mate of his called Kevin Rolfe asked him to do it to prove to someone called Telkom that their broadband wasn’t as fast as they said they said it was. Fucking great idea. Top job, and in the meantime, he goes and shows we’ve been right all along.

Good on you, Winston. Gonna try to sort an interview soon as.

Loads of you sent me the story. Cheers, everyone. Linda came up with PDSL tho. Genius.

Next time you go into a shop that sells internet, ask for PDSL, and consider it an upgrade.

Give it up, for Winston. Oh, and excuse the mental patient in a pigeon suit. Jesus:

And there’s some good flying shit in this one.
