The ‘WTF’ is in blue - it’s a link!

Gonegirl Thu 10-Oct-19 17:58:05

Tap on the video for sound.

Sound is prettier than the picture.

I wish I could balance on one leg as long as he did.

Baggs Thu 10-Oct-19 17:58:57

WTAF? Indeed. What a bunch of loons.

Baggs Thu 10-Oct-19 18:00:33

Which is not meant as an insult to actual loons, just an abbreviaton of a word beginning with luna. Actual loons (divers) are lovely.

The moon is lovely too.

Yeah WTF,I love the look on the portly Policemans face, his bored body language said it all

Gonegirl Thu 10-Oct-19 18:07:11

I'm just surprised he could keep a straight face Rachifagran.

Bathsheba Thu 10-Oct-19 18:07:19

I am enjoying reading all the tweets - e.g. "Extinction Rebelĺion? My god! Why wait?" grin

It’s put me off my dinner!

SueDonim Thu 10-Oct-19 18:36:35

Can I have some of what he's been taking? grin I don't know how the police kept a straight face!

NfkDumpling Thu 10-Oct-19 18:43:58

And they expect to be taken seriously? Silly billy.

TerriBull Thu 10-Oct-19 18:47:22

Yeah WTF!

Dreadlocks on a white man, bad case of cultural appropriation I'd say shock shock shock

Surely someone should have pointed that out to this batshit hippy, It's all very well saying Vikings had them, well I say this "were you around in the 8th century???" as it is he's 50 years too late for Woodstock, yeah his longboat has sailed a while ago and without him sad Probably whilst the crusty was comatose in his hemp smelling bivouac.

Mind you I'm suffering from balance envy, I guess he's been taking advantage of some of those yoga workshops we've been hearing about.

None of this caper when I was working up in town, bit of Hare Krishna..........goes off singing "Hare Krishna, Krishna, Krishna, Hare rama" or something like that not a lot to remember really sad

Strutting his stuff there! Reminiscent of Mick Jagger methinks!

petra Thu 10-Oct-19 19:00:09

I've got 23 years on him. I balance on each leg for a minute each morning while cleaning my teeth.?

Iam64 Thu 10-Oct-19 19:22:20

Same petra, teeth cleaning - leg balancing. I'm better in the morning than in the evening....

That young police officer did well didn't he, face straight and not reacting to the chap getting in his space.

TerriBull, loved your comment about cultural appropriation. I wonder if the dancer never gets to see social media, read a newspaper etc so doesn't know he's being a Very Naughty Boy by culturally appropriating dreads.

Gonegirl Thu 10-Oct-19 19:32:03

I suppose it's performers like that that keep the protest, sort of, soft. No violence involved. Keeps the mood a bit appealing.

Iam64 Thu 10-Oct-19 19:45:51

I agree Gonegirl. I know a fair few young (and not so young) people who are at the protest in London, including a group of young medics and retirees like myself. I understand the worry about stopping people getting to hospital appointments, to work etc but a peaceful protest is getting the climate agenda on the front pages

Maggiemaybe Thu 10-Oct-19 20:26:52

Goodness! ? Some of the tweets are funny...
The Karate Kid’s let himself go a bit.

Gonegirl Thu 10-Oct-19 20:37:31

I like the reply:

OMG I’m sure that’s my accountant Rupert from Highgate?


SirChenjin Thu 10-Oct-19 21:26:24

Oi gonegirl - give me back my WTAF, you were only getting WTF

I want what he’s having.

Gonegirl Thu 10-Oct-19 21:35:02

Mine now! gringringrin

He's good!

SirChenjin Thu 10-Oct-19 21:36:26

I told you that actual made a difference grin
