I preferred the pool noodle with "I have coronavirus" painted on it version.

They could go to a bit more effort tho.  That thing doesn't even have Bluetooth...

(To be briefly serious, I did at one point have reason to travel by bicycle carrying a long poster tube, and after a couple of attempts to bungee it to the toptube in a way that didn't interfere with pedalling, decided sod it and strapped it across the rear rack in that style.  The effect was the sort of room you get when riding a recumbent trike, and - as I discovered slightly too late - similar issues with narrow gaps between bollards.)
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Scroll down the kickstarter page for the real fun.
Days become simply the spaces between dreams, spaces between the shifting floors of time...

Ah Yannick of ETA. I did actually win one of their competitions once.

I would sponsor the flame thrower for sure  ;D (but frankly, it is extremely extremely rare that I get passed close enough to make me swear)
