Three tales of buffoonery
At school we monkeyed around on BMX bikes doing jumps and such. We found a freshly cut ditch with a ramp of earth and a deep ditch beside. Exciting. Along came Eliot, the school tough - and said "Give me a bike, I want to do it". So we did and explained it was quite a jump so he'd have to go fast. He took the approach and cycled painfully slow toward the jump even tho we were yelling at him to speed up. Up over the ramp he went, the front wheel dipped down and jammed on the lip of the ditch. This threw him over the handlebars and he landed on his face (skidding a bit). He lay there for a while as we hooted with laughter then got up to look at us with a tremendous gravel rash on his face. A true Laurel and Hardy moment.
Walking back from a boozy night out, it was kick out time so the street was busy. A couple were walking along on the other side of the road and the guy was clearly worse for wear. He was also yelling something at people behind him and walking closer to a Zebra crossing. His girlfriend tapped him on the shoulder rather urgently to warn him of this, he turned around to look why and PING!!! Clacked his front teeth right on the metal post.
Working on an assembly bench, one of the favorite tricks was to quietly sneak up behind someone seated and jab them in the side of the ribs (I didn't start this, I only caught on). Carl was sat down at the start of the day and was absent mindedly reading a paper. Adam crept up behind and gave him a big jab to the ribs. Carls unusual reaction was to bring his knees up ie. curl up in a ball and inadvertently tip his castor wheeled chair underneath him and the desk. So with the chair tipped up and below him Carl clung onto the bench with his elbows. Adam, seeing his misdemeanor started to 'help' him back upright. Putting his arms around his waist and pulling up for all his worth. Unfortunately the pair resembled an invalid being humped by a workmate. One of the funniest things I ever saw there.
