Cannondale used to (maybe still) make one called The Bugger. Oddly, they never officially imported
it into the UK!

We have one of those. It's fun to pull it with the tandem.. you get double the stares.

Seems like they narrowly missed a great opportunity to give the thing a more appropriate name for a
kid hauler: Booger.

Sorry folks. Didn't realise I'd cross posted this: when I first heard of the Cannondale product
(it's no longer made) I busted my hole laughing, but when I explained it to my (Texan) colleague, he
just said "so?".

It's hard to see how anyone can survive on a bicycle without this word with its many meanings in
their vocab ("an uncooperative object or apparatus" - that's my rear mech, alright). I'm sure
Sheldon "Polyglot" Brown is totally >au fait< with it, and probably has a chart on his website
outlining the shades of meaning and areas of applicability.
