Default Do a "Cat walk"


We were out for our nightly ride and we had people on ten different
occasions call out "Do a cat walk" "Cat Walk" etc.

What's with that? They have stopped asking: "where your other wheel" and
have moved on to "Do a Cat Walk. So far our only response is to tell
them: “We are”.

Do you guys know of any other possible snappy comebacks? Also is this a
fairly common cry?

What most people refer to as a catwalk is a wheelie on a bike (front end
up while pedalling). A real catwalk refers to an aerial motocross move
where the rider moves his body to one side and walks in the air beside
his bike.

What I meant was: Since a b*ke catwalk is riding on one wheel, why do
they keep asking a unicyclist do a catwalk? Also what is an appropriate
response?

Any response is appropriate to an irrational request. You might perhaps
say, "I have some carrots," or "ducks have nine toes", or "winter in
peanut butter comes turquoise" and you will have properly addressed
their request.

I haven't used it much, when someone says
"You're missing your other wheel"

I slowly say:
"No. It's a u n i c y c l e"



They act like I don't know I'm riding one wheel.
I act like they don't know what a unicycle is.

That's excellent. Especially the s-l-o-w part so they can understand.

The proper response is:

"Of course. A cat don't skip, a cat don't hop."

From the description, it would appear that cat walk is about equal to
wheel walk. Show them you can do it if you can. Or glide away.

I used to get a lot of "Do a wheelie!" I would respond one of two
ways:
- Do a wee-wee??
- It *IS* a wheelie.
