My favourite Andy Zalan quote
4.06.08 by Buffalo Bill
Over on the messengers list, the ‘real’ messenger debate has started up again. I think the whole ‘real’ messenger debate is a load of crap, and I have said so a bunch of times. The funniest response to the debate was a piss-take by Andy Zalan, current holder of the Marcus Cook Award. It goes as follows:
shut the f*** up all you courier wannabe pussies! everybody knows that you are not a real messenger unless you ride a black track bike with no brakes, push a 52-15 gear ratio or larger, earn at least 150 bucks a day, and have suffered through at least 5 winters, until then you are just a rookie…
By the messengers list I mean the electronic mailing list of the IFBMA, over at the excellent DC courier site. To receive messages from the list you have to be subscribed, otherwise have a look at the archives.
