The first funny person that comes to mind is a man
who sits on the branch of a tree by a road and shouts at the
cars that pass by. He is mad of course but it still is strange
that a madman should shout at passing cars. He never
seems to notice me somehow when I pass by on my
bicycle. For him it is only cars. He shouts with such gusto
and pleasure. I always laugh when I see him at it.
Then there is this man in baggy snorts and Japanese slippers who rides his motorcycle with only the right side
of his buttocks on the seat. The left side hangs out. This
makes his motorcycle lean at an awkward angle as though
he is about to fall, but he does not. Perhaps he has a large
boil on the left side of his buttocks. Whatever the reason, I
have seen him ride the way he does many times. He looks
so funny, but dangerous.
Running a sundry shop near my house is a short
and stout man whose body shape and movements resemble
that of a penguin. I do not mean to be derogatory but he
always reminds me of that bird. However he runs his shop
well and I get a lot of things from him.
Finally there is a dandy who dresses in the most
outrageous outfits I have ever seen. The colour combination he chooses for his clothes are, to say the least, horrible. Only he dares to wear a purple shirt with green
trousers and a pink tie. Often I see running around on his
motorcycle wearing those loud clothes. He works as a
salesman for some company. Perhaps those clothes help
him to get, or maybe shock, customers.
