  • James the pissed guy. Hes got ginger hairs and hangs around in Clifton. Hes so funny
  • The ones who walk through the bus station asking for change when your all queing, u cant be bothered to reach into your bag cause you have got so much shopping so you just say 'no sorry' they acept it an move on. Once they have asked everyone they come back down asking for money to feed their dog, again you say 'no sorry' finally they get to the top end of the bus station and ramdomly shout 'you bunch of f*****g W*****S', Whats that all about????
  • Variety of harmless-nutters up and down Gloucester Road. 1) guy who runs up and down gloucester road all the time. 2) bloke who hobbles alon glooking deranged and breathingl ike darth vader. 3) Asian guy who walks up and down Gloucester shouting incoherently.

  • stiltwalkers?
  • Buskers chill out in the underpasses by the bus station tho rarely does anyone bother busking for fear of being mugged by other buskers who dont really busk they just sit there and ask u for 7p or something rediculous they follow you up the road screaming at you for 7p! Genuine buskers get respect. Big Issue sellers are in abundance and crack/smack heads just want 7p mate! Oh yeah and do you wana buy a phone?!!!
