A canoe often has people in it,such as Leonard Jones or Malcolm Stanton. Canoes are quite small and a magnifying glass is often needed to spot them. They are happiest when in water, as dry land fills them with contempt. Canoes are made of bark or foam, and are used when boats are no longer viable. Until 1800 canoes were as popular as the tube is today, with hundreds of early British commuters crammed into each one. The first man to cross Niagra falls in a canoe was Herman Munes. He drowned. It was never attempted again (by him). Canoes can be obtained from your local Canoe Shop on the high street, price 9d.
