I think there might be a thread of photos similar to this in On The Road, but your title made me laugh more, Kirst :)
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

That would be 99.999999% of the population of France then. I kind of admire them for their ability to put two fingers up at authority and park anywhere they dam well like. My favourite was four cars parked on top of a roundabout near Narbonne rugby ground when the whole area was rammed due to a big match.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

What do you do if you see a space man?

Fuds?
It takes blood and guts to be this cool but I'm still just a cliché.

The excellent and addictive Bristol Traffic blog acts as something of a repository of bad parking.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Tee hee, Bristol traffic.  It'd be a menace if it wasn't so slow.

The streets around my office are like a magnet for fuddish parkers. I think it might be something to do with some people not wanting to walk more than 3 yards to get to the bookies'.







And a new garage which has opened under the railway bridge where people think the pavement is the car park.

Viz has the wonderful term "cashpoint cripple" for able-bodied people who park on double yellow lines outside an ATM.  See Old Town High Street in Swindon for an example.

Being a country boy I was unaware of the lady garden version of "fud". I've always used it to describe old folk and thought it a derivation of "old fuddy duddy", but the other version is funnier.   ;D

I had to resort to wikipedia to understand "fud". Scottish, apparently.
