Three Blind Drunks

Spotted on the Underground tonight, at King's Cross Station: three blind people who also appeared to be blind drunk. They were tripping over their white canes and their guide dogs to the point where I thought it might be a pantomime act, until one of them nearly stumbled in front of a train. They stood laughing and falling about for a while longer before toddling off in three separate directions, calling as they went, "See you!" "Right, see you soon!" "I'll be seeing you, then!"

Is it just me, or does that sound a little odd to anyone else?

Next you'll be telling us you saw an amputee that was legless.
