A Man, a Moped, and a Dog: Best Friends Forever

September 12, 2011

The world is full of weirdos. Let’s just be honest. I wish there were fewer weirdos and more quirky people. The type of people you see in the show Gilmore Girls or the movie Runaway Bride (Or for the guys…the movie Christmas Vacation, maybe?). Alas, people are most often put into two categories of “normal” and “weird.” But there is hope, my friends. For a few months I’ve been seeing a guy ride around town on his moped. Pretty normal, right?

Oh no, my friends. That is not the full picture. He has a companion with him on these rides, and that companion is a Pomeranian dog. As the man drives, his little dog puts his back legs on the man, and his front legs on the handle bars. Actually, it’s better to see it for yourself:

I know, right? At first you’re like “That’s hilarious!” Then you’re like “What if the dog falls off?!” Then you make a 360 degree turn back to “That’s awesome!” I’ve seen these two riding all over town, and both seem fearless like the honey badger. It probably helps that it’s a moped and can’t go too fast.

I was on my way somewhere and he just happened to pull up behind me. I jumped out of the car and asked if I could take a photo. He nodded his head (said nothing), I snapped the photo with my phone, and the dog acted like he couldn’t be less interested in me. Hilarious.

    I’m a fan of a dog and a man on a moped together. The man’s fingernails, however, are creeping me right out.

      Whoa! I didn’t even notice them. Now I’m creeped out too…
