Horse 341 - Terrorist Road Safety


A congrats goes out to Kate who has joined the world of motoring with the acquisition of her P-plates. "Be alert but not alarmed" was her quote in a bible study last night and I suppose that the thought must have burrowed into my brain not ot found for a while.

That thought had been running around inside my head for several hours and for some strange reason (and after I'd been watching A Clockwork Orange on SBS) my brain went into shut down mode and without warning I thought of Hector the Road Safety Cat and his famous song.

Stop at the kerb (Stop at the kerb),
Look to the right (Look to the right),
Look to the left (Look to the left),
Look to the right again.
Then if the road is free of traffic,
walk straight across the road, don't run!
Walk straight across the road.

Now I bet you aren't wondering what Road Safety and terrorism have to do with each other because quite frankly they don't but, then I remembered something that the Scared Weird Little Guys did on the radio. It goes like this:

Stop at the kerb (Stop at the kerb),
Look all around (Look all around),
Keep you eyes peeled (Keep you eyes peeled),
Be alert but not alarmed.
Then if the road is free of terrorists,
walk straight across the road, don't run!
Walk straight across the road.

So I hunted around and guess what, it's on the Triple M website for download. This is really cool except that...

I can't find Hector's original road safety song and the bugs me.
