BSNYC Frizzy Fur Quiz!

Today is an auspicious day in cycling, as all over North America Subaru-driving Belgian beer enthusiasts are wetting their waders over the announcement that Louisville, Kentucky will host the cyclocross masters world championships in 2012 and the elite world championships in 2013:

This is easily the most shockingly lavish gift from Europe to the United States since Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize. In determining the location of the world championships the UCI had to consider a number of compelling bids, including one from Portland which involved routing the competitors through an elaborate reconstruction of the "Three's Company" set, beer hand-ups from specially-trained chimpanzees, and a custom machined bottle opener and $35 Stumptown Coffee gift card for the winner in each category. Ultimately, though, the UCI decided that the sport of cyclocross should retain some dignity, and so cyclesport shall be spared the spectacle of the most ironic cyclocross race the world has ever seen for at least a few more years. Still, cyclocross-mad Portlanders will no doubt descend on Louisville in 2013, where they will be easily identifiable by their constant complaints about inferior beer and coffee, insufficient mud, and the total lack of a category for their dogs.

In the meantime, I'm pleased to present you with a quiz. As always, study the item, think, and click on your answer. If you're right you'll know, and if you're wrong you'll see the Danny MacAskill of pretentious mountain bike art.

Thanks very much for reading, ride safe, and remember that the deadline for The Great Meh BSNYC Free Scat Contest! is 12:01 AM EST on Saturday, January 30th (which is technically tomorrow morning but colloquially considered tonight), after which no further entries will be considered, no matter how pathetic.


1) What is this?

--The mascot for the 1972 Olympic Games
--The Canine Cyclocross World Champion
--The Dachshund of Time

2) Riccardo Riccò, aka "The Cobra," will return to cycling just in time for:

3) When kangaroos attack, they do in fact go for the "pants yabbies."

4) Who would win in a fight between a hawk and a kangaroo?

5) In a recent video advocating brakeless fixed-gear riding and featuring cycling attorney Bob Mionske, which is a reason given for this choice of bike?

--"To cross-train for different sports"
--It feels like you're "running on wheels"
--"I just feel a little more in control"
--All of the above

6) Thanks, "bike culture!" Finally:

(Canadian "Fakenger")

7) "It even comes with the pens!" How much should you expect to pay for a Canadian Bike Courier Starter Kit?

Got it wrong,, however I think the Roo would win the battle by hitting the Hawk in the yabbies.

How much for just a Canadian Starter Kit??

Riccardo Riccò is too busy teaching a spin class to worry about his large breasted better half's transgressions.

sorry Sarah P., wrong again. hawks, just like you, don't have actual yabbies.

Tough quiz this week, I must be drinking two much belgium beer, and inhaling the exhaust from my Suburu.

Certainly not playing enough bike polo in garages, or giving a shit about cyclocross.

perfect score this week! peaking just in time for the "live stream from Tabor race from the computer to the frig for another beer" on Sunday.

what you do with your cat is your own business.


Jefe said...

You need bad beer at cyclecross races to spray the riders with. It's a Belgian tradition. The Portlanders won't show up anyway unless a Flaming Lips video is being cast.

Canadian Starter Kit includes: French/English dictionary, mittens & sunscreen, a "common phrase" book (including such gems as "I'm at Timmy's, how many bits do you want?"), and a health card.

Deluxe package comes with Celine Dion CD (doubles as coaster) and an exhaustive list of why you should not drink Molson Canadian.

Ricco and his wife..Douche couple.Nice going!Maybe their newborn will be the posterchild for Cerra gummi chewables.

"inferior beer and coffee"

How. Dare. You.

(WOOOOO! and it's pronounced Loo-ah-vul)

wishiwasmerckx said...

Ricco's hair reminds me somehow of that scene with Cameron Diaz in "There's Something About Mary."

UC Bearcat said...

Louisville? What, was Cincinnati busy?

db said...

I couldn't even participate in the quiz after the description of the Portland CX Worlds "bid". Awesome.

God knows I've been tempted to pull a Cipo bottle toss at motorists, but I'd never expect to actually make my target then crash... the man has superpowers.

Canadian dress ups!! hahahaha!!!!

I wonder what its going to be like, these fixie people waking up at 35 with terrible knuckle tattoos. I mean, I know( I have some goth calf tattoos myself!)they must think that perhpas the economy will always suck, so no poin ever having to look like a sane adult again? But, wallmart is always hiring, sadly.

kerry said...

We have the Ausssie girls verwion of that Canadian dress up - a big white bra under a strappy Bonds singlet, tight jean shorts, blonde hair with black streaks, a winnie blue( smokes), a baby, 20 extra kilos of celluite( add 10 more for each successive year beyond age 20)and a six pack of XXX beer for the lucky man curating his dropped, chopped ute.
No wonder the blokes prefer Roos.

The expression on that cat's face indicates he's licking off some spilled bongwater.

Snob, it woulda been hilarious if you wrote:

Can I haz cheeseburger? under the cat pick, because there just isn't enough of this on Al Gore's internet.

My Dachshund of Time is longer then most. I didn't get the right answer the 2nd time I took the quiz.

Commie would still be blogging today if he hadn't skimped on the LOL cats.

okay, just now, flippin around the radio, I heard:

That annoying song by the hairy-vagina-ball band.

So, I clicked around and caught:

I don't know if you believe in omens, but I am suddenly glad I do. Friday is starting to look kind of interesting all of a sudden.

Thanks to you, Mr. Snob, I learned that it is too late for me to become an admin for a flickr group called Knuckle Tatoos and also to start a project about knuckle tatoos. But, it's not too late for Dickies Riding Fixies.

Hey, No comments from yesterday? I can't see them if there are. This has happened before - anyone know why?

Same thing happened to me last week. Turned out my computer monitor was just a microwave oven.

And a mention of Cippo again! ON FRIDAY!

This bodes well for a certain salty kitty.

I for one want to thank Mr. Torn for all he has done at great personal cost to entertain so many for so long.

He just keeps giving and giving and giving.

But he really needs to give up the firearms.

I can't help wondering if he was simply looking for a place to get warm.

Oh Merckxy.... RTMS may indeed be getting the "seal of disapproval" overhaul very very very soon.
btw, now that my old seal of disapproval sticker masking the manufaturer's name of my plastic rear wheelbrow is so last year, when can we expect new stickers with the new chic 2010 Latin verbage?

Elmore Ruel Torn Jr.

holy crap, here i thought Rip Torn was just a full on stage name.

um, but I must say that really, he looks pretty good for 79 years old. Must be the booze and the shotguns.
