Recognition at Last........

Post by XTreme » Wed Jul 29, 2020 12:43 pm

......after a lifetime of service to Namby-Pamby Motorcycling! Because I got a Friend Request on FaceBook.........from TED SIMON! :shock:

(In 1973, sponsored by The Sunday Times, journalist Ted Simon began a 4-year, 64,000 mile solo journey travelling around the world on a 500cc Triumph Tiger 100 motorcycle. His book, Jupiters Travels has inspired many overlanders).

I had to block David Icke from Fb because he was always popping around at inconvenient times. And that Tedros Adhanom from the World Health Organisation because he never returned my socket set I lent him. And that Penélope Cruz because she kept DMing me nude pictures and phoning at all hours begging me to leave the wife.

Ted Simon? Pfft.

All I know is that you can never trust someone who has two forenames and no surname.

I've heard of him, mate. I've even read his book. It was ok.
Don't have the book any more, mind.

I was expounding that theory with a couple of the team at work once, complaining about a guy called Simon Craig, said that his parents did it on purpose just to confuse people & he continued to do so in the work place ......
They just stared at me ...
:tumble: :tumble: :tumble:
Then I twigged ..... their names were Julie Duncan & Mark Simon ..... whoops
