Are mobility scooters a new hip hop accessory?
A colleague here in BBC World Wide Web Towers went to see a gig by Super Furry Animals last night, and the support act were Welsh comedy prankster rappers Goldie Lookin' Chain. When they took to the stage, one of them was apparently riding round in a mobility scooter. Is this some sort of new rap fashion statement? Will it spread to the USA, as all the big name rappers trade in their huge blacked-out 4x4s for mobility scooters? And more to the point, have any of you young trendy Ouch'ers about town seen the Goldie Lookin' Chain mobility scooter phenomenon? Are they trying to make a point, or is it just some not particularly funny joke? Comments welcome.
