According to [[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} The Other Wiki]] the idea of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broom#Brooms_and_witchcraft witches riding on brooms]] goes back to at least 1453, making this OlderThanSteam. In the original woodcuts, they've got the head or brush part in front, logical enough since the original witch's broom was a staff with a carved phallic end and the brush was tied on as a disguise. Today's depictions most often put the head in the back, for sake of an aerodynamic appearance (and for similarity with an exhaust pipe or jet engine).

This is AwesomeButImpractical, as brooms weren't designed to be ridden upon. You would crash more than on a motorcycle, and would then fall from very high up. Also, [[MunDanger you'd most likely suffer fatal internal injuries if you tried it for too long]] - look up [[TarredAndFeathered "Riding the Rail"]] sometime.[[note]] Then again, [[AWizardDidIt it's magic.]][[/note]]
