    It isn't people being silly..it is in fact chav morse code..a pair of Fila's over a telegraph wire = got some white lightening,party at mine,a pair of Lacoste over the wire means that I have got some really class Lambrusco rose and have been sick all over my parents carpet,a pair of Reeboks means I have dropped me mobi down the bog...please come and rescue it...you can see further explanations in my book.....The Title of which is,,,, "Chav's and the *normal* people...how we can all shop at Argos in unity"... catchy title huh??? Lol :-))

    Source(s): Edit..unfortunately it is for the reasons of drug dealing..but everyone else had said that..cheer's Melia you make me laugh too hun xx

    I'd understand it to be a pair of runners/trainers slung over an electricity/telegraph wire. Sometimes an apple is just an apple. To me, anyway.

    i used to see that being done by kids for a laugh the same with a bycycle tyre hooped over lamp posts.i must admit to trying the bycyle tyre trick i never managed it though.

    In the US it's a sign that drugs are sold there (like crack and so forth). Do you see that in Britain? Interesting if you do.
