Every town has one, usually more than one, those fucking fruitloops you see doing crazy things in the street, so I put it to arrse, what tales do you have of your local characters? In Brid there's a few, there's one they call "sharkey", and everytime someone says sharkey to him he starts trying to eat his own hand. Allegedly one time a group of kids were circling him on their bikes chanting it at him, poor fucker nearly chewed his fingers completely off! Another one in Brid called "smelly Andy", he looks very much like Battery Sergeant Major Williams from it aint half hot mum, complete with beret, blazer and swagger stick, and he marches around town with eyewatering BO, with a wire hanging off his ear (from a sony walkman) telling everyone in earshot that he's the chief commander of CID and asking around Tesco if there's any security jobs going. Apparently it takes six carers to get him in the bath which clearly doesn't happen often! There used to be one in Beverley train station on a night that we called "chicken man", he used to pace up and down the platform making clicking noises at first, then he'd start clapping loudly while walking like a chicken doing the same head movements, everyone used to be sat there with their hands over their mouths and tears down their faces trying not to piss themselves laughing. My lass used to see this one all the time on her way to work, there's loads of videos on youtube of him, fucking hilarious!
