Cyclists, you have been Warned
January 18th 2012 01:14
Warne, who has dual A-list celebrity status for services to cricket and services to men's hair, was driving home on Tuesday when he was forced to look annoyed at the antics of a cyclist. Some reports suggest Warne may even have gesticulated.
There is no argument that the cyclist was a hoon. He apparently approached Warne's car from behind, grabbed hold and helped himself to a free ride for some distance. When Warne reacted, the cyclist rode past the vehicle and braked in front of it, holding up traffic.
This, of course, created a potentially dangerous situation. Authorities really must look into keeping the public at greater distance from A-list celebrities.
The situation also raised important questions about the inability of modern journalists to recognise a Ferrari. "I do not own a Ferrari," said Warne, in response to the initial story which claimed that's what he was driving. "I own a Mercedes and a Chrysler," he elaborated.
Further disturbing developments emerged today after Warne created a series of Tweets, not one of which contained a reference to sex. Instead, Warne went on a Tweet rampage against the unfettered freedom of the public in terms of access to roads while mounted on bicycles.
This is a sensitive issue which has been simmering, at sub-celebrity level, for some time. Now that an A-lister has taken a stance, however, the Twittersphere is abuzz.
One media report today said Warne's view had received support from "B-listers" Lara Bingle and Holly Valance, as well as from celebrity journalist Tracey Grimshaw. This raises further serious questions, such as whether B-listers should be mentioned in the same story as an A-lister and, crucially, whether it implies that Tracey Grimshaw is a C-lister.
