Delightful ambiguity

The bike? The horse? The girl?

This is one of my all time favourite adverts!


  1. Good bit of inclusivity there Anonymous, you should join St Mary's, if indeed you're not already in the congregation or employed there!

    I didn't include the bloke as an option only because my impression of the ad is that it's aimed at the bloke.

    While I'm perfectly comfortable and at ease with the idea of such things, the possibility of the bloke being delightful to ride didn't actually cross my mind until you mentioned it!

  2. Oh, I've been to St Mary's once or twice...

  3. Lay clerk, never presume that a man sporting a yellow spotted cravat, cuff-links and shoes with shiny buckles who is staring at Doris Day and a horse is a straight biker.

  4. But Rock Hudson used to stare at Doris Day and he ...... Oh wait, I see your point!

    Anyway, straight or gay, he's going to be a donor unless he gets a helmet & leathers on! A cravat and a tweed jacket are scarcely protection against gravel rash. He'll make a handsome corpse though.

  5. I didn't know you fancied corpses?
    You learn something every day

  6. You have a short memory. Oops! I've said too much!
