I dont mean to be a PITA but I have 2 things to say about this. #1 - WHAT THE FOXTROT!?! 2 - Is this really news worthy? --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 21:07, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

I think this is certainly news worthy, if I'm wrong then perhaps we should make it so because this is the kind of story what would go on digg or what not and get us more views. I just can't help but find it humorous, not only by the image of duffy riding a bike through a supermarket, but also of the thought that people watch that kind of thing and think "Wait a moment, she's not wearing any safety gear, she could harm herself and my children might start riding around in supermarkets, this must stop". I must admit that if you're worried about your children riding bikes in supermarkets then perhaps you need to parent them better.....and perhaps I should paste all that in the 'opinions' page. --James Pain (talk) 21:22, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Ah, I've seen this advert. I wondered, "what bimbo is on the bicycle?". Might I suggest Science proves paint dries faster in sunlight instead? --Brian McNeil / talk 22:29, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
I agree, no it's not current affairs but, trust me, it's the sort of story that people read because it is so stupid & bizarre. I'll clarify the location. Dottydotdot (talk) 07:15, 18 June 2009 (UTC)


This article is missing any references to where in the world this is happening. --SVTCobra 21:47, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Title needs to be more descriptive. Reading the title now, I first thought that there was a new ad coming out for Duff Beer from the TV show The Simpsons. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 11:30, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
Duffman can never die, only the actors who play him. Ooh yeah! --SVTCobra 22:20, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Peer reviewEdit

Article, talk, comments don't loadEdit

There is a Firefox 3.0.11 specific bug on this page. No idea what is causing it. I cannot (and another person who tested cannot either) see this page at all in FF 3.0.11. FF 3.5 does not have this issue, nor does any non-FF browser. Nothing shows up at all, just a totall blank page. This happens for all three pages, article, talk, and comments, as well as the history pages. I'm guessing that it has something to do with the title, since that's the only link between the three pages that I can see. Gopher65talk 20:30, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

That's odd. I'm on Firefox v. 3.0.11 and everything appears fine to me, I never had any problems with what you described. Tempodivalse [talk] 20:37, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
