Alternate title: Herne Bay, Motobility Scooter Town
Detroit can ‘read it and weep’
Hernie has 35000 Hernites…
…and 6000 registered motobility scooters
Of course, there are some folk with more than one…
…as in your everyday one…
…and your one for best !
For church on Sunday ?
For dates ?
Probably just a spare so you can always be on the move
Anyway, day 2 and no sign of Big Joe
No worries, he will show up
There has been a little muttering regarding the G.-man’s
‘homoerotic near miss’…..
…..along the lines of Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act III, Scene II…
…’methinks, he doth protest too much’
Look, it was back in 1976 and it lasted approximately
Let me help you with the arithmetic………
…..that is 8 billionths of a second
Some rainbow warriors would claim they all count…..
….well, ‘Good night, and good luck’, 2005
The Groover decided to try and insinuate himself into Hernie
…..a stroll down to the promenade and thirty minutes sat
watching the sun set with a takeaway from the LEGENDARY…
‘Shakey Shakey Traditional Fish and Chips’
Regular chips and curry sauce
Well, perhaps not
Even the seagulls couldn’t be bothered to pester me
But this establishment is hugely popular as attested by the
string of mobility scooters lined up outside
The G.-man would struggle to pass himself off as a local…..
…..no tattoos !
…..and at 6ft 1 and 14 stone I would look like I was suffering
from anorexia to the average Hernite !
Back to moby-scooters…..
They come with lights and indicators for night time forays to…..
…..probably the ‘offy’ or the take away
There are 23 chippies, 14 Chinese, 11 Indians and 6 kebab joints
Oh, and 9 offys
…..and that’s just in the centre of town
The moby-scooters come with sound systems so the driver can tear
down the pavement with ‘Wild Thing’, The Troggs, 1966, blasting
out of the speakers
It’s a simple fact of life that ‘hells moby-scooter angels’
represent a larger risk to life and limb and your general
well being than a British coalition government !
