    In another thread, someone mentioned that an overweight colleage referred to cyclists as "bonnet fodder" - as a "joke", presumably.

    There's loads of possible comebacks that one could make "jokingly" - fitter and faster, biologically younger and less likely to need a cardiac surgeon, buns of steel and a better sex life.

    Anyone else like to share theirs?

    You mean that the money you save by cycling you are investing in downloadable porn? :smile:

    When I was in the States in 93, I was at a BBQ and found myself with a particularly loathsome subject.

    He said to me (as Americans do) "Give my regards to Margaret Thatcher when you see her". My immediate response to him was:

    "The next time I see Margaret Thatcher will be through a gun sight."


    The look on his face was something to behold.

    Was that the one where I was quoted as being "bonnet fodder" by a well overweight motorist at work?

    That's the one, Merv. Plus a couple of other where people have recounted how obese, out of breath, bloaters laugh at them for wearing lycra.

    I helpfully advised the chavette passenger in a vintage nissan micra (she had just told me to "use the fukkin' bike path") that she should close her legs because her meat stank. She called me a fukkin' bastard and then had to explain to her equally chavvy driving boyfriend what I had just said.

    Oh I see. The Treppengedenke thread is more about post-discussion thoughts, whereas this one is more of an exchange of expertise.

    I was thinking of a remark a friend made: He came into the office in cycling gear, and the usual fat bloater said "What do you look like?" He replied "Like someone who hasn't had a day off sick in 12 years", which was appropriate, given fat bloater's sickness record.

    That sort of thing.
