Mart’s Great Idea

Seeing as this fairly appalling image is the state of play in London for the next few days weather-wise:

Mart suggested we invest in one of these. He reckons there’s plenty of room for two:

He also said we’d be the envy of all London pigeons.

Frankly, I just think we’d look like a pair of total twats. What are we going to do? Sail it across Trafalgar Square? Circumnavigate Piccadilly Circus? Battle against the cobbled rapids of Covent Garden?

Idiot.

    m@: I know. Not sure what it means, but it looks bad. Not sure if high up ledges are the way to go or not. May look for some sort of ground based alternative!

    Windflower / Mank*star: As m@ pointed out, it looks like the lightning’s gonna be red. That’s got to be BAD. The more I think about it, the more I reckon sitting under a suitably waterproof bush may be safer…

    Hey, Brian – Maybe something more like this would be to your fancy?

    Saw them in the Financial Times – right swell, ain’t they?

    bless Mart – he is just ahead of the curve, I bet in 15 years all the cool pigeons will have one,

    ps – is it motorized? wind powered?

    At least you won’t be bothered by cats!
    Pity that you pigeons are not waterproof like ducks

    Anastasia the Swan: Now you’re talking, although with Mart navigating I suspect we’d end up in the North Pole.

    Virginia Gal: Mart was suggesting we power it with sticks like they do in Venice. Now you know why I said we’d look like twats.

    RoooRoooo: Good to hear from you pal, and absolutely! The ability to swim might come in handy too!

    You know, about the North Pole – heard about that British crew who rowed from Canada to the magnetic North Pole, and have just arrived? You could be the first pigeons to actually make it to the North Pole. Even better if you propel it with a stick, people will love it. Just take lots of seeds and maybe knit yourself a pull-over with fallen goose feather?

    Cheers!

    Yes. There’s throwaway everywhere.

    the beak: That’s genius. Cheers for another link. Love to give that one a go. Course he wanted to go on a tour. They should have just let him get on with it.
