Ironic picture of the day


Super Hans: You should get a van, Jez. With a van, it's like you've got an MBA, but you've also got a fucking van. You're not just a man anymore - you're a man with a van. You get a van, Jez, and we could be men with ven.
- Peep Show

Brockley Cross is afflicted by a plague of removal vans, so it was only a matter of time before its natural defences should kick in. This morning, BCer Bill has photographed the Mantle Road bridge swallowing a hapless van, like the white blood cells swamping the submarine in The Fantastic Voyage.
D&M Van Hire be warned.

The odd thing is, it looks like it's been in...

The odd thing is, it looks like it's been reversed in...

No doubt thousands of motorists and rail travellers will have had their journeys messed up by this MORON.

He - and it's undoubtedly a he - should have his licence removed and should be subjected to a public flogging.

Proper punishments, ones which actually physically hurt, are the only way to tackle this country's epidemic of useless drivers.

I always suspected Lou was a woman - is there a clue in the last post?

(I am of the female persuasion, lest anyone should read any mysogyny into the sentence above).

The Stig said...

True Mezzer,dont know how he managed that.

The Stig said...

Or Her

Danja said...

In forwards, crunch, tried to reverse out of trouble. Failed.

Brockley Nick said...

Danja's solved it.

Bill said...

Almost Danja. The front bit is not rigid so the driver got about 5 feet under as the front bit folded down when the van moved under the bridge and then realised the top was peeling off. In a moment of stupidity said driver then thought he would force his way thru at which point he got his nose out, the front bit popped back up and so the 'reversed in' look.
I took a snap and then went for a coffee so not sure how long the van was stuck there...

Lou Baker said...

Lou is a bloke.

But, in my view, women are unquestionably better drivers.

(Well, except old women).

The worst drivers of all are anyone in a van, Royal Mail lorry drivers, mini-cab drivers - sorry Speedicars - and anyone in a BMW. Or Volvo.

pip said...

Ah well, thanks for clearing that up, Mr Lou!

Mondee said...

Oh dear, my Volvo is on order. I'm destined to become a bad driver. I would add bus drivers to your list, Lou. Rude, inconsiderate, aggressive... And to top it off, most seem to speed to the point of dangerous driving.

This brigde has caught quite a few men with ven out. The one I saw about 2 years ago was going so fast he ripped the body off the back of his van.

This is why I think Tesco et al will not be moving into the retail units on Mantle Rd.

Try cycling in London. You soon learn to add black cab drivers to the list of bad drivers. They drive around in little bubbles of self importance, having completed The Knowledge. I can't count the number of times I've almost been taken down by a cabbie doing a U turn in the middle of the road, or suddenly pulling over without warning to pick up a fare.

TM said...

Perhaps we should all take turns to hire a D&M van and then take ii straight under the bridge.

Might persuede them to get a proper yard........or not.

TM said...

it not ii

Bea said...

Love the irony of it being a "Safe" van.

Why had he got a body on the van Drakey?

drakefell debaser said...

The police were asking him the same thing. It made a right mess.

Clown, saw ths before with another removal truck about 2yr ago but was even more impressed when they kept trying to go foward, he had not even got the nose past the other side... typical van driver...

HHunter, having been a cyclist in London I'd add cyclists to the list of awful road users. And pedestrians. And women on their mobile phones with kids in the back. And blokes in Audis. And WVM obviously.

Frankly everyone else is a bunch of c****

These chaps on the South Coast are clever...

Let some air out of the tyres.
It really isn't rocket science.
But then, it was in London ..

Looks like a great spot to open a crafts workshop catman!
