A brilliant implementation of the classic mother joke. Mornish, I salute you (and your mom).

Them: "That's cool, how long have you been riding?"

Rider: "Oh, about 3 hours now; time for a break!"

Them: "You the man!"

Rider: "Last time I checked!"

---

Them: "How do you ride that?"

Rider: "When you fall off, you get back on again!"

I'm to honest to understand most people

1 Is that hard ?

"Only after I've sat on it for an hour ".

2 How do you do that?

"I started by dragging my hand along a wall for balance, while I concentrated on pedaling smoothly. I got real good at it, and one day I got bored with waiting for the scabs on my hands to heal, and just started riding."

3 Isn't that dangerous Grandpa ?

"Yeah, I'd dye my hair, but then if I really gave a shit, I'd wear a helmet."

4 Hey, you're getting really good at that.

" Thanks, yeah , I'm still fat, but man , you know, it's a cool way to exercise. Like whoa, now I'm jogging backwards."

Just to recap, here are my original comebacks in no particular order:


Them: "Where's your other wheel?"
Me: "It got all worn out, like that joke!"

Them: "Is the circus in town?"
Me: "Yeah, and their lookin' for clowns like you, lol!"

Them: Where's the rest of your bike?"
Me: "Where's the challenge in that?"

Them: "couldn't you afford two wheels?"
Me: "Couldn't you afford a joke writer?"

Them: "Now that's not something I see everyday!"
Me: "If you come here everyday you will!"

Them: "How do you ride that thing?"
Me: "With great skill!"

Them: "Do a wheelie!"
Me: "I need money first"

Them: "Don't cheat, let go of the seat!"
Me: "That's not the seat I'm holding...where's the nearest bathroom?"

Them: "How high can you hop?"
Me: "Well, if someone sneaks up and startles me...then pretty high!"

hem: "How much did that cost you?"
Me: "Over $25,000, with the reconstructive surgery!"

Them: "I had one of those when I was a kid"
Me: "Said the typewriter to the laptop"

Them: "Can I ride it?"
Me: "I don't know...let's find out"

Them: "That's the most amazing thing ever!"
Me: "Yeah, I guess the moon landing or the pyramids would be a close second, lol!"

Them: "How fast can you go?"
Me: "Depends on who's chasing me!" (or) "Depends on how much pepsi I've had!"

Attractive Female jogger: "You're fun to watch!"
Me: "So are you!" (Personal favorite! )

Them: "Do you ever get hurt?"
Me: "yeah, when people call me names"

Great contribution. Glad we have you on the team.

A good one I used once:

Q: Where's your other wheel?
A: Wha...what?! I've only got one wheel?! *zigzag like crazy on purpose and fake trying to retain balance*

Sometimes, I even go for a preemptive strike...when I'm out riding and I see a kid on a bike watching me, about to say something, I yell to him...

"How the heck do you ride that thing?!"

Them: "Do you fall a lot?"
Me: "Only When I mix my drinks"

Them: "How long did it take you to learn?"
Me: "7 days, 4hours, 6 minutes and 12.2 seconds. Sorry I can't be more specific, but was a long time ago"

Them: "doesn't that hurt your nuts when you hop off stuff?"
Me: "No, only when I land!"

Him: "I don't see how you do that"
Me: "Can I have your autrograph Mr. Wonder? Btw, I love your music!"

I guess I'm not very original. I usually just ignore people that make dumb comments, and act like I'm too busy to hear them....

So far, not much original here. Most of these have been posted in other threads here; too bad we couldn't have added to them. One of these days, if I'm bored enough, I'd like to go through all of these threads and pull the best responses for a master article (or web page) on comebacks. It hasn't been done in the On One Wheel since the early 80s...

I guess I enjoy the give & take. A lot of the time I'll stop and chat and answer questions. On several occasions people were so intrigued that they started writing down all the info I gave them about how to get started and where to buy a uni.
