A Man After My Own Heart
"A man walks into a pub..." - the opening line of countless jokes. Only this time it was 53-year old Simon Smith of Reading, England and he'd just been hit by a speeding, out of control, double decker bus.
After dusting himself off, Smith walked in to one of his locals, The Purple Turtle.
Stuart McNaught, the bar manager, said Mr Smith was taken to hospital but had emerged from the accident with just bruises.
Mr McNaught said: "We've known Simon for about 20 years. He went to hospital, he's OK, he's a bit frail today, he's not feeling the best.
"He went to hospital, the paramedics who called the ambulance took him.
"He's bruised and shocked I think. It's absolutely crazy."
