This picture shows someone walking a bicycle that is piled with bricks. The man has left a hole in the pile of bricks so he can reach the handlebar of the bike.
He didn’t think he’s get away with it, but his friend said it was a doddle. He’d done the same with wheelbarrows. Before long he had ten barrows to sell as he’d never been challenged for theft because no-one thought anything of a guy wheeling a barrow carrying tools across a building site.
Bricks were a different matter. They weren’t exactly the easiest of things to pilfer, but this seemed as good an idea as any. All a question of balance.
It was damn awkward steering his bike though and he’d had to put a rag through the hole to protect his arm which was now grazed and badly bruised. Still, he had enough now to build the patio his wife was forever harping on about, so he could now quit while he was ahead and make a start. Next thing to get though was sand to brush between the laid bricks. The beach was a lot further away than the building site. He wondered if Mick still had a spare wheelbarrow.
Hahaha! No one would suspect stealing when someone is trying to struggle with all that! Who would be dumb enough?
You never know!!
