Ya sure did, bozo


tossthis34

Hey, man - what are you hassling me for? This is just a gig, it's not my life. I don't know who Bozo is, what - is he a clown?


Hamilton-Beckett

Best interaction I’ve seen today.


mowasita

Bozos duh. Is it spelt bozos, or bozoes, or bezos?


Straight_Will_3082

Better than jabroni


dub-fresh

I've always enjoyed calling people a fool ... It cuts deep.


Foxwolf00

I've always been partial to "empty-headed fethwit", myself.


jeNks2616

Use wanker. Best word ever.

Me Grimlock not Bozo, me king!!

pupsplusplants

My stepdad called someone a knucklehead one time and the guy lost his mind. It’s the best insult ever


principalkrump

The yugioh community have been calling people bozo for at least a year


chahud

I like bozo but I’ve been using dingus lately.


Final_Scheme

This should be in r/cringe for how obviously fake it is.


AintAintAWord

#HEY BOZO


Theothernooner

Hey, I know you!


medhatsniper

That's my friend Tom


antisocialdrunk

I was looking at the letters. Not one is similar (looking at caps). But you’re right. Same pen and paper.


aneeta96

Oh my, how did they ever find a second person to write the other sign?


corvus7corax

Same writing pressure too. Same Bs (that pointy bit!), same Cs, same Hs, Ls and Is very similar.


stokeskid

Don't understand the downvotes. I came to the same conclusion. And its more likely to not have help. Because this shit is pathetic.


TomAto314

It's just reddit. Once a comment gets -1 then everyone piles on.


Frisky_Picker

Reddit is like a modern day Milgram Experiment.


Frisky_Picker

Reddit is like a modern day Milgram Experiment.


Gr0ggy1

y Y y Y look at the Ys, then look at the off center horizontal lines on the capital H above and I below. It's the same person or an absolutely remarkable coincidence, same sharpie, same poor tape job that wouldn't last long enough for the the replying person to; notice it, go find a sharpie & paper, write the note all nice and neat. I may not be confident beyond a reasonable doubt, but I am confident enough to downvote. If it were real, as a cyclist, 100% fair.


SentorialH1

You mean they both didn't have the same paper, same pen, and same writing? Shocking\~!


Shonnyboy500

I mean, it’s different writing. Still obviously fake though Edit: realized it’s because it’s capitalized


flamebroiledhodor

I still think it's different writing. The ticks on the C's are different


doomgiver98

The bottom one is in Italics and lowercase though.


fortuna_spins_you

I’m the original poster. I took this photo years ago when I was out for a walk and posted it.


Rats_In_Boxes

OK so this was my wife's sister's bike when they lived in Cambridge. She's been trying to live this photo down for years and I promise you that we will never, ever, let her live it down. Thank you for taking this picture you have no idea how hard it's made us laugh for years now.


Final_Scheme

Sure ya did

https://www.reddit.com/r/boston/comments/36vlux/spotted_in_cambridge_friendly_neighborhood_note/


Final_Scheme

So you just made both signs and took a pic yourself. Cool OP


fortuna_spins_you

I’m much too lazy for that.


Final_Scheme

OP 🍻


GrouchyYT

Listen Bozo, sometimes victims of theft and random concerneds just happen to use the exact same pen and paper.


Rats_In_Boxes

It's 100% real. This was taken near Gore street in Cambridge, MA.


imeeme

Elementary, Watson!


FunctionBuilt

Clearly carefully writing in all caps to avoid making the handwriting look similar. Forgets to change pen, paper, and overall letter spacing and word size. The B’s are identical for fucks sake.


Taolan13

The Bs are not identical, and even more the Hs are not identical. And neither are the eyes.


FunctionBuilt

Look at how the right side of the B is written. Same stroke just slanted.


pteargriffen

But they aren't. The bottom one has a small bump, with a clean half circle lower bump that is quite large. While the top one has a medium sized bump with a slightly larger lower bump. Also the "P's" are different, there is almost no letter that I see as identical, the only thing that makes it seem fake is the same size marker used, the dumbest form of communication with a picture for example, and that's pretty much it.


FunctionBuilt

I disagree. I think the B is close enough to look like same person deliberately trying to write it differently. Obviously it’s too pixelated to tell so we’ll never know…


Emergency-Attempt-50

The top page was written by my sister when we lived together in Cambridge MA in 2014. I can 100% confirm it is not fake.


gunwharf

Same paper same pen?


RoscoeMX5

The subtle off white coloring, the tasteful thickness of it…oh my god…it even has a watermark…


johnsolomon

Something wrong, Roscoe? You're sweating


Pazylothead

I know right, impossible that there is so much 11x14" printing paper and black sharpie markers around


The2500

Right off the bat I want to say I'm a very stupid, ignorant person. What the fuck is a handicap pole? Is it so they can lock their wheelchairs to it?


MegaWaffle-

Strip clubs don’t discriminate and this special pole lets them keep working.


icallitjazz

Just to answer without making fun of you. Thats the pola that has the handicap sign. I guess you cant chain anything to it because it might obstruct cars that needs raps for wheelchairs and such. So not for chaining your wheelchair when you pop into the shop, but to mark the whole area needed for the handicapped, not just the parking space. Sorry if its still confusing.


The2500

I think I can get that. Part of what was confusing me was the width of the signs. It's probably just a thin metal rail, but I was picturing a tree trunk like telephone pole.


digital

We should do a forensic analysis to determine the truth


MillerLitesaber

The T’s on the first note look a little too similar for my comfort, but it’s not definitive. What gets me is the pieces of paper look like they were posted on the same day with scotch tape


avalonian422

Check out the upper case B's. It's the same writer.


[deleted]

[удалено]


avalonian422

The B's have characteristics that hint they are from the same writer. Also the off center vertical and horizontal lines on the T's and I are unique writing traits as well.


SarcasmDetectorFail

First thing I noticed was how legible the handwriting was.


sepviva

“… killed them all, of course.”


Hamilton-Beckett

Life before reddit.


SEPTSLord

Bozo is an underused word


pixelandminnie

Bozo was a clown on tv in the 1960’s


digital

Bozo was a friend of mine 🥰


Expensive_Wonder_615

The original?

[удалено]


Expensive_Wonder_615

Only an unknown, unfortunately


rouges

I'm calling a lot of people bozo now. It's like my new thing


Significant-Set8457

Bozo the clown was a children's TV show. It was filmed locally and my mom took my sister's scout troop to the studio. I was too young to be a scout but went with them anyway. I ended up being picked from the audience to do part of the show. There it is my brush with greatness. I was on the bozo show


TheMagarity

What's a "handicap pole"?


coreybd

Pretty sure in certain parking situations you'll see poles on the edge of a handicap parking space when the edge is close to where traffic drives through. Like if you picture a Walmart parking lot they would be on the closest spaces to the store


Iliamna_remota

Reevaluate YOUR life 🫵


Fermatious

They both have the same paper and marker. Convenient


ConsciousWhirlpool

This looks so staged.


PalaPK

My favourite word of all time.


SockeyeSTI

“That guys a bozo”


jigsaur1

WHAT are the chances that both the bike owner and the critic had the same sized piece of paper and the very same pen available to them at the same place but different times? Very slightly differing times - notice no weathering, crinkling or ink runs? I smell a made up submission trying to pretend it’s real.


Expensive_Wonder_615

Can a bitch have fun online anymore damn u ain't Inspectah Deck


jigsaur1

YESSS!!


auto98

> had the same sized piece of paper While I agree overall, paper does tend to be pretty standard sizes


Gromit801

Bozo is a boomer insult. Feel free to go old school.


iLarkie

I’ve totally forgotten that “Bozo” is a great insult. I shall be using this daily at work!


FunkyPete

It would be kind of funny if they did lock it in the same place with a new lock . . . since the original owner wouldn't be able to do anything but leave another note asking for the combination.


GoGoPowerPlay

Bozo is one if my favorite insults


Randy_Marsh_PhD

Marge, give us the scoop!


dent_de_lion

“Ehhhhhh, she told him to BEAT IT, BOZO!”


Intelligent-Spite242

"Hey Bozo"


TryAgn747

Someone should put a sign about how it's illegal to post a sign their


dubbznyc

Fake


GrayMatters0901

Ok but maybe it was a modified of electric bike for a disabled person


Sarahbear123Austin

Oh this cracked me up!!! Nice to see something funny on Reddit


[deleted]

Had me at BOZO 😂


Emergency-Attempt-50

Hey reddit! The top page was written by my sister and I can confirm that it is 100% not fake. It happened in 2014 and we still laugh about it. Never got the bike back though


saltyswedishmeatball

Fake AF.. this devalues Reddit which is saying a lot


LilSpermCould

Probably one of the few times someone's bike was stolen, but actually wasn't. I remember a story from a friend, when I lived in Denver, which is a very bike centric area. After leaving work downtown, another friend met up with them, they had already been at the bar. Friend proudly rides his new +$3,500 mountain bike down to the patio to drink. Whilst fucking off and drinking someone casually made off with the bike on the other side of the patio fence. This was over 5 years ago, not someone I am close to, but this story still makes me angry. At not just the theif, who just casually leaves something so expensive out like that?


feral_philosopher

Dude. This is a life lesson. Anything you think you are right, or wrong, try to take a step back and evaluate THE LANDSCAPE!


hes_crafty

Probably cheaper buying a new bike than getting it back from impound


ChickenGoose

Look at the y in 'previously' on the top one, then look at the y in 'hey' at the bottom. These signs were written by the same person.


Reggie222

It's fake, like most of these. Two people had identical black markers.

Objection, hearsay


wcmsmmam

They both hav3 lovely writing


HenryGrosmont

Both? That's one person.


Maineamainea

Should be a 3rd sign saying, it IS illegal to lock your bike to this pole but don’t call the cops I stole it before they could get to it.


Paltry_Poetaster

Burrrrrrnnnnn...
