Two men, one considerably smaller than the other, were crossing the street to enter a public-house when a youth on a bicycle flashed past them, operating a “buzzer” on the front wheel which emitted a particularly sharp, raucous wail.
The smaller of the men gave a nervous jump, and his friend said: “Lumme, what a state you're in—fancy jumping like that for a bike!”
“Bike?” retorted the little man; “I wasn't afraid of no bike … I thought I ‘card my missus calling me!”
