BORIS JOHNSON UNVEILS 60FT 'BENDY' BIKE!
London Mayor, Boris Johnson, has unveiled his latest solution to the capital’s transport problems – the bendy bike, a 60ft-long, articulated bicycle that bends in the middle.
‘The bendy bike is just what Londoners need,’ said Mr Johnson. ‘It can carry up to fifty people and, with its accordion style flexi-frame, it can go round corners much more easily than any regular 60ft bike.’
The super-size velocipede can be hired at docking stations positioned around the capital and has the advantage of rapid simultaneous boarding. ‘People can simply hop on and hop off whenever they like,’ said the Mayor. ‘When you want it to stop just ring the bell or honk the horn.’
Unfortunately on it's first day of operation a disabled pensioner, Gladys Bigerse, was hurt as she tried to jump on at Oxford Street. "It was the fist orgasm I've had since my husband passed away" she told us, "the bar of the bike just caught me right on the fanny and it was an exhilarating experience. I'm going to try it again, once the bruising goes down".
