Pushys is saying stuff about your Dad

wonder if you or your readers can bring enlightenment to my simple soul. When visiting the good folk at the Flute Bakery I can’t help but notice the highly decorated back wall of Pushys Bikes. Mostly it appears to be the usual garish advertising but as you can see for yourself at once point Pushy seems to have lost the plot by delivering a sarcastic homily about everybody’s father. Is this cunningly cryptic advertising do you think or did Pushy suddenly suffer some sort of acid flashback? Any solution gratefully accepted as thinking about this is overheating my brain and making it difficult for me to enjoy my cake.

My Dad ran because the snow was cold.

With two sheep in his pockets to keep his hands warm…

This statement is actually true for my Dad so maybe it is intended for me, although the uphill part might be a little exaggerated. I don’t think a bicycle would make it any easier in the snow however.

It’s called humour. Should be more of it.

Thanks Dad.

I think they are just making reference to “dad” statements. My grandfather use to say “I had to walk 15 miles to school in the rain and the hail, bare foot, so stop complaining”. They are saying just come in and buy a bike and you can cycle to work, school etc instead of being like your poor dad, grandad etc who make their “walk to school….” statements

I think it’s an attempt at Pythonesque humour:


It’s called humour. Should be more of it.

Actually that’s not unusual. Old Spice stick deodorant contains the advice: “If your grandfather hadn’t worn it you wouldn’t exist”.

They’re just pissed because my dad could beat up all of their dads.

Then again, they’re all a bunch of hipsters, so they could all get beat up by pretty much everyone else.
