The much-vaunted atheist bus campaign – which, amid great hoo-ha, has plastered a couple of buses with the slogan “There’s probably no god. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life” – has achieved something truly immense.
It’s annoyed a bus driver.
Now, you might think that annoying a bus driver isn’t that big an achievement. And you’d be right. I can think of dozens of ways you can really upset bus drivers, including:
- Wanting to get on a bus
- Wanting to get off a bus
- Not knowing the exact fare required because you’ve never travelled between those two particular points ever before in your entire life
- Taking more than 1 picosecond to hurl the exact change into the money box
- Attempting to sit down before the bus goes round the corner on two wheels, throwing you into the nearest pensioner
And so on.
But I digress. What a terrible, terrible campaign. If “smuggery” isn’t a word it bloody well should be.
