Loco boots

Chuffa puffa puffa along

A pair of knee high boots with loco train rubber wheels attached to the base of the boots that power you along(probably quite fast)complete with steam funnel on the upper.

The shin of the boot contains the small insulated boiler or battery that feeds the engines with the steam or electricity to propel you along.Valves, whistles and speed are controlled through a hand held trigger system.

Coupled small wagons attached to the back for your pet mouse or additional luggage,an option,whilst with steam models coloured smoke clouds along behind you.

       How does one steer such a crafty boot?

       Lean or connect a steering cable via the handheld device.Either way keep your head down.

       Steam chugs out and blows into your pant leg?

       So that’s why I have coal in my stockings.

       Much better than all terrain unicycling

       Keeps you warm in the winter, too! Excess steam could be run through custom leg warmers.   

       How I wish I had a clever pun in hand. (sigh)

       With cattle-catchers?

       I close my eyes, and see hundreds of people all chuffing along on tiny little rail tracks, stopping occasionally to change the points, or at a railway crossing to let those poor unimaginative souls that still drive cars, across the junction. Choo! Choo!, have a Casey Jones shaped +...

       "And tonight on the five o'clock news... a pair of runaway loco boots caused a crash downtown in the business sector this morning. When it was all said and done, thirty-four people had derailed..."

       Will multiple Loco Boots be able to connect to each other? (+)
