Won’t somebody think of the… tyres

I came across this news snippet earlier, about armed robbers escaping from a jewellery store heist on a moped, and had to suppress a giggle. Yes, it’s awful, and must have been terrifying for the staff.

But it does bring up all sorts of evil questions, like:

  • how many robbers can you get on the back of a moped?
  • how come the tyres didn’t explode? and
  • why does it remind me so much of the wonderful sheep motorbike display team in A Close Shave?
