It's Kent, innit?

I always get hassle when I cycle in Kent.  The drivers are a breed apart from the rest of the UK.

I think it is something to do with large numbers of black cab drivers living in Kent.  The two 'hot spots' for cabbies' dwellings are the Bromley area (Kent) and the Upminster area (Essex).

Unfriendly, nuke-owning, foreign powers please note...

Er... isn't that giving them two targets to avoid?


GENERAL: Prepare for launch

WEAPONS ENGINEER: Systems ready, General. Awaiting your order to fire.

AIDE: My General! Wait! I've just read on that bastion of cycling information, yacf, a veritable tome of human powered knowledge, the greatest cycling resource known to mankind - Essex and Kent are home to huge numbers of taxi drivers. If we leave them, they will mow down and kill the rest of the population that our nukes leave behind - we won't need to waste our valiant soldiers lives.

GENERAL: *pauses, and draws his pistol* BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!

GENERAL: *Screaming at the prostrate, bloody body of his aide* You dare to put another cycling resource above Sheldon Brown!

GENERAL: *Icy calm again* Engineer, re-target, avoid Essex and Kent.
