TODAY’S bus strike will be no laughing matter for anyone.
With reports of bendy buses breaking down, striking drivers taking to the picket line on days booked off as holiday, thousands wasted on a bus ticketing system - when it comes to the goings on at Bus Vannin it sometimes seems you couldn’t make it up.
It’s all provided plenty of ammunition for creators of a series of an animated cartoons posted on YouTube that is poking fun at bosses at Bus Vannin.
Entitled Funny Bus Bosses Isle of Man, it stars Shortworth, Blackie, Cartwheel and Greenshine as thinly disguised DCCL management, voice recognition software providing them with vaguely sinister Russian accents.
Topics include a secret bunker of bendy buses in Jurby and the unfathomable timetable.
‘That’s why we should not send kids to university - they would be able to work out the bus timetable!’ suggests Cartwheel.
