Some news never gets old, apparently.
On a bus between Washington and Newcastle. Bloke with family (sister, mum, auntie?) just relating endless tales about livestock related accidents to no one in particular. Most starting along the lines of “have you ever been kicked by a bull?” and other farmyard animal assaults. It went on for 5-10 minutes until he asked “have you ever been chased by a goose…” and his mum replied “do you ever shut up?” to which he replied “yes” and stopped talking for a minute or two before noting that “there’s only one McDonalds in the Metro Centre now, so if you want one you’ve got to walk all the way around for it!” Understandable I suppose that after all that torment at the hands of livestock he’s loath to exert himself for it anymore.
