Clever disguise

And for uphill sections, the arrangement can be (conveniently) inverted.

Best regards

Nigel - yes, although the disguise element may be lost.

Reminds me of the old joke about the man who was stealing wheelbarrows

A K Haart said...

Angus - what old joke?

Demetrius said...

Perhaps the wheelbarrow is taking the weight off his mind.

A K Haart said...

Demetrius - aarghh!

this one AK:)

There’s a story about a security guard at a factory.

One day this guard stopped a worker who was walking out of the factory gates pushing a wheelbarrow with a suspicious looking package in it.

The guard opened the package up and found it contained nothing but some old bits of rubbish, sawdust and floor-sweepings.

The next day he stopped the same worker who was again pushing a wheelbarrow containing a suspicious looking package. Once more it contained nothing of value.

The same thing happened many days on the trot, until the guard finally said, "OK, I give up. I know you are up to something, but I just can’t tell what. Please, I promise not to arrest you, but put me out of my misery - tell me what you are stealing."

"Wheelbarrows," smiled the worker, "I’m stealing wheelbarrows."
