people should just stay clear of bikes. While a lot
of us can blame accidents on bad drivers, component
failure or pot-holes, maybe the problem for the President
of the United States of America is that he just can't
get his stubby monkey fingers to work the brakes properly...
W Bush, cycling around the grounds of Gleneagles, where
he is attending the G8 conference, has managed to run
over one of the policeman there for his very protection.
any good sportsman Bush had a heady mix of excuses lined
up and ready, explaining that the damp weather in Scotland
had made the path 'slick'. Added to that he was 'riding
hard' - adding that if you're not riding hard you don't
fall off... Stating that he should start to 'act my
age' served as confirmation that until now he has been
acting his shoe size (UK rather than US or European).
Bush also said that he was more concerned about the
well-being of the policeman (echoing the thoughts of
many). The condition of the policeman is uncertain,
but it is thought he may be on his way to Guantanamo
Bay as we speak.
Bush has now had 4 falls in as many years - two involving
a bike, one a pretzel and one (and this was just asking
for trouble) on a Segway scooter.
