It was one of those ones that's so in need of a wash that someone's written something amusing in it.
Except it wasn't anything amusing. It wasn't about wishing any female relation or acquaintance was as dirty as said vehicle but rather it had just two words:
Yeah. What?! Why would you write that? It was an EDF van, so it's unlikely that as well as fixing people's meters the driver and his faux fisherman's friend liked to don leather waders and catch a cod.
Why would you write that on someone's van?
I came home and googled it. A bit dangerous I know, but there's not many gay fishermen it turns out (God, I hope my wife doesn't check out internet history)... One site for Gay Fly Fishermen was set up last year and they were hoping to arrange an outing (so to speak) for a group of men but it looks like perhaps it didn't go down too well (so to spea.. yeah, sorry). I felt quite sad for that Gay Fisherman, he'd never even posted on his blog. He had a lovely logo and everything. Type Gay Fisermen into Amazon and there was nothing although in 1971 a band called the Liverpool Fishermen did release an album called Swallow The Anchor - on which subject my mouth remains closed. In every way. Also (what?! don't judge me) I did find an American couple called Mr & Mrs Gay who do indeed like to indulge in sea fishing but it seems unlikely they decided to scrawl on a van on the A120.
So, I'm still none the wiser. But it did make me realise that being a gay fisherman could probably be a lonely existence and maybe one had tried to advertise on the back of this van but that it pulled away before he/she could finish their plug. It reminded me of a song by Corky & The Juice Pigs called The Only Gay Eskimo, who let's face it do fish. So, here's someone's interpretation of that video. Trust me it's safer than the other youtube effort claiming to be a gay fisherman: that really didn't look like fish he was reeling in and frankly he's more likely to catch something else with that kind of behaviour. Anyway...
