Barclays crazy man loose in London

He's really gone - screaming, running between cars, the whole biz

While quietly munching on our lunch and observing the local wildlife (dontcha just love the summer?), we were extremely surprised to hear what sounded like a woman having a massive argument.

Catching glimpses of a solitary person through the bushes in Hanover Square, London, we were further shocked when it became clear it wasn't a woman at all but a suited-up guy screeching and swearing into the air as cars swerved to avoid him.

He kept this up for a full ten minutes, disturbing many and entertaining we sick vultures (fresh meat). He then walked past us, still screeching incoherently. What could have knocked the switch, bent the mechanism? We were confused.

Then, exiting the square, he stood still and proceeded to scream abuse at the building opposite. We looked up: Barclays.

This whole Net security issue is bigger than any of us thought. ®
