Boyracers

by Alan Bissett

Cruise the mean streets of Falkirk as the boyracers discuss cars, girls, Irn Bru, football and the meaning of life. Wise-cracking, edgy and fast. Give it to all the men in your life.

... planet earth is blue and there's nothing I can do, as Dolby's Adidas-clad toe stabs Belinda's accelerator and a mountainous rumble shudders up from her bonnet and Falkirk town centre swoops away behind us, the Global video-shop window screaming and the faces of Denzel Washington, Madonna, Kate Winslet, like fly-posters whipped from walls by our passing and that feeling hits the four of us in the shoulder blades as Guns n' Roses sing take me down to the paradise city where the grass is green and the girls are pretty and Frannie suddenly yelps
Heddy-haw!
and it doesn't get any better than this.
