M is for Mechanophilia

Yep, I wasn't entirely sure what "Mechanophilia" meant either until a few days ago, during a restless night, I popped over to The Daily Mail for my regular dose of dubious news reporting and read this article.

Now if you can't be bothered to read the article. I'll sum it up:

It was about a man who was recently prosecuted for trying to have sex with a Suzuki motorbike. Yes, men don't just do it with sheep. They also do it with bikes, cars and probably the No 43 bus from Paddington to Tottenham Court Road.

I also have it on very good authority from a friend who is a consultant radiologist they do it with a number of other interesting objects. To which I say:

    1. I just need a good title and opening line to kick-start me Ann.If you have any ideas let me know!

  3. You can always count on the Mail for a good laugh.

    1. That's for sure, Wendy. If I want real news I go elsewhere. The Mail is a constant source of amusement for me!


I am always delighted to receive comments!
