Whoever is behind this site is inspired in the extreme, so don’t go reading it where rolling aboout laughing will cause disciplinary action. After all this whole campaign is about covert action.
The full story is on the whatshouldiputonthefence.com website, but essentially it’s one man’s revenge on London estate landowners who put up a “no bike locking” sign on the fence he always locked his bike too. The sign even went up the day of the first tube strike for extra ironic value.
As the ‘Fencemaster’ himself says, he was “quite cross” and has begun a running campaign of retaliation by padlocking various non bike items to the fence instead. So far there’s been cutlery, a kettle and frying pans all dutifully removed by the non too pleased estate handyman.
The whole site is a masterpiece of short histories and bizarrely thorough links to stuff mentioned in passing, as well as some really useful and inspiring stuff about cycling and commuting. Best of all you can even suggest what he should padlock to the fence next. It’s truly the most twisted yet superbly realised thing we’ve seen in along time.
Go see it and then tell everyone you know to go and have a look. Plus if you know anyone who can get padlocks cheap we’re sure he’d be interested.
He is indeed, Da man!
