Funny old World !

Post by Who2 »

The guy that looks after my jeep just popped round. Mo.
He's an auto electrician, everybody goes to him, police, army, tuk-tuks, motor cycles.

He does everything electrical but his busiest thing is installing sound systems and mad led lighting.
Even in police vans. He came round the other week in a brand new paddy wagon,
he'd fitted in a sound system and lovely blue led's running down the sides, tasty!

Now, many customers pay him in kind, chickens, clothes, and of course money.
Tonight he showed my his latest payment, a very nice pair of new leather boots.

'Nice, I said he then removed one to show me, inside it said George 1984.
Off to the net and £35 asda now I didn't know George was asda and also made shoes.

It took a bit of time explaining that his boots where named after me but with the help of the laptop he understood and found it hilarious.

Footwear as you have probably all noticed, is high on the agenda for any good Muslim, especially during Ramadan.
Or for chucking one at George Bush. ( that's still a good joke doing the rounds )

When it comes to 'flogging a motor the locals know best.
Now Mo the Jeep has been 'pimping my ride so it can be sold,
best offer so far, from a man in Armant with a tourist 'girlfriend.

Now I said "don't bring the bloody thing round my gaff, I'm embarrassed !

Well you would wouldn't you be ? When I first got it from Suez, owned by a full-on 'brother,
It was pimped to the max. I sprayed the whole thing black and toughened it up,
"no one f**ks wit de black 'hesus.

Anyhow as my new mode of transport is to be a yuk-tuk, he's been off with my camera far & wide.

Two years old, good engine ect,
So: jet black, fold down roof, side perspex windows, sound system, fridge & not a sign of chrome anywhere.
Work in progress, 'her next door can pop out and earn some fares 'wimmin only yuk-tuk.

Why yuk-tuk ? automatic spellchecker, So Yuk-Tuk, yuk yuk!..... 8)

Ps: More madness to follow, inshaala!
