This Just In: Leave of Absence Announcement! (and Friday Fun Quiz!)

(The Lone Wolf recedes into the distance, as photographed by a reader.)

As another week draws to a close and we embark upon the Memorial Day weekend I am also embarking upon a short leave of absence, during which I will be attending to matters of personal life "curation" well beyond the purview of this blog. This leave will commence as of the end of this post, and it will continue until Monday, June 7th, at which point I will return with regular updates.

During my absence, I would humbly point out that you can always read my book, the obviously-titled "Bike Snob," which is available wherever fine books are sold. (They keep my book next to the fine books so they look even finer.) Otherwise, by way of blogular webular sites, there is always Cycling Inquisition, All Hail the Black Market, or, for the ultimate in bawdy and ribald cycling blogs, The Erotic Misadventures of Mario Cipollini. Also, if I have anything pressing to share in the meantime (such as the publication of a Universal Sports Giro blog or the latest news in my helper monkey Vito's ongoing battle with head lice), I may do so by means of my Twitter social networking account.

I look forward to returning to this blog on June 7th, as well as to meeting some of you at my Book-Related Appearances (or BRAs) in a few weeks' time.

In the meantime, I'm pleased to present you with a short 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 dangling keys and pretentious skidding.

Thanks very much for reading and ride safe. See you on June 7th.


--BSNYC/RTMS








1) Cockpits are Saddles 2.0.







2) In the recent bike messenger episode of "Judge Judy," who won: the plaintiff, or the defendant?






3) What's the best part of "training" indoors?






4) Where are you most likely to find a "human fingerbang?"





***Special "Hipster" Behavioral-Themed Bonus Question***

What are these "hipsters" doing?

I think my chances of a perfect quiz score will improve to about 25% if the quiz is further shortened to a single question.

Nogocyclist said...

Does the early post and the extended leave of absence mean you are now loading up the Surley Big Dummy to take MommaSnob to the Hospital?

Congratulations. We don't mind at all if you just want to post pictures with no explanations at all. We know you will put them up for family and close friends anyway, so go ahead and include us in that group.

Have a great leave of absence, Snob! In the interim--the Bad Lawyer Blawg will continue with daily raving, typos, illogic, and the occasional-rare cycling-related forensic drivel.

ringcycles said...

Early post and short quiz? Is Vito eager to start vacation week, or did Mrs. Snob start counting contraction? (as opposed to the usual counting conjunctions)

wishiwasmerckx said...

So, Frilly posts her new picture, and THE VERY SAME DAY, the tour of Missouri disappears from the race calendar.

Coincidence? I think not.

This is already being labelled "Nipplegate" in the halls of power in the capital building in Jefferson City.

Personally, I think there is more to this than meets the eye, if you catch my drift.

Put another way, I think that we have only seen half of the story, of you catch my drift.

Nogocyclist said...

The virtual bike ride in the "Wrong Answer Video" must be the bicycle version of the Driver's Ed Simulator they made us take in High School during the last century. In drivers ed, I remember coming into a parking lot doing 110mph and safely pulling into a parking lot. Pull up to to car behind you, punch it. It did not matter, at the end of the course everyone passed anyway.

In the WAV (wrong answer video) the bike (with no rider???) rode down the road. There was a bike lane, but the rider rode right in the middle of the street and sometimes even did a salmon.

Is this NYC DOT's new "Bicycle" Rider's Education Video? Must be, from what I hear, many riders in NYC ride their bikes just like the guy in this game did.

wiwm--do not get me started on the ToM most likely being cancelled. It is a bunch of political bullshit and the governor should be ashamed. Its his personal grudge against the lt. governor. Nothing more. So the state is going to lose $38 million because of this egomaniacs power trip. Idiot.

There is a grassroots effort to try & salvage. If interested, tourofmissouri.com or mobikefed.org. Thanks.

And if I should ever take the top step of the podium again, I may consider telling the other half of the story. Had to laugh when you said you were speechless.

You're so utterly careful about what you put on the internet that you have a blogger profile with a picture of yourself and personal information. Just another self-centered beardo hipster asshat with too much time, too much of mom and dad's money, and an internet connection. Someone who likes to pretend that he's somehow special amongst a group of "individuals" who all look the same, act the same, and participate in the same mind-numbingly boring crap.

At least I can admit to being part of a faceless "different" crowd (no, I won't tell you which one, because I am apparently more careful than you).

And Snobby, welcome to parenthood -- it can be tough at times, but it's immensely rewarding. (A cliche, of course -- but cliches, like stereotypes, are real time-savers.)

Oh, and the thing earlier this week about the recumbent being fabricated from recycled helmet mirrors and beard hairs? As a member in good standing of the beard and helmet-mirror demographic, I just about fell over laughing. You're in fine form these days!

basur hapi,

Silly me, here I was thinking that the links in your text would just lead to some annoying irrelevant advertising, but to my surprise I was directed to what looks like a Turkish manufacturer of haemorrhoid cream. I was most especially pleased to learn that this cream is 100% dogal urun.

I was just wondering however if this cream would effectively clear away the irritating globs that sometimes clog up my cassette to the point that they can be hanging out and interfere with the chain passing through. I don't want this occurrence slowing down my off road riding so I have tried various brushes but a simple cream would be much more pleasant.

Eagerly anticipating a reply,

Phew! I thought I had popped up on the Spell Check Robot's sensors for a moment there. Poor Anon 5:40, I shudder to think of the old school Dr Who B-grade sci-fi fate he has met at the hand of Spell Check Bot. Yes, I did catch a glimpse of this robot once and it actually does have just one hand, a human hand. The story goes that Spell Check Bots mad inventor killed his lover, the curator of an online dictionary, and through cybernetics grafted her hand onto his most beloved, Spell Check Bot. When powered up for the first time Spell Check Bot became aware that part of its name had been boorishly abbreviated to Bot and turned on its creator with the only weapon within reach, a red correction pen. Spell Check Bot now endlessly roams the earth, stopping only to top up its correction pen with the harvested blood of those who unwhittingley misspell in its path.

So, Dr. No starts off the contest to name Snob's baby after a bike term or product with the most-appropriate "Brooks," the plural of "Brooke," which will work best in the event of twins.

I was going to suggest "Felt," but BGW does have a point about the whole pedophilia thing, and I don't want to set him off again.

Baby Snob says drink Just Coffee.

...kids on a role...

...sheesh, endorsement deals before he can even say "goo-goo" or (lady) "ga-ga"...

...he's still too young to be just sayin'...

I used the logo of the coffee company for my newest onesie for Baby Snob. The endorsement is my way of showing where I stole the graphic design from. Putting it up that way, there is no way to include a link to the coffee company to acknowledge where I got the design from.


Check the onesie out. This is actually my personal favorite.

Cycling Jerseys,

I do like that "Don't run me over" Jersey.

Back when I was able to ride, I would have loved to had one.

外遇---偷來的時間、偷來的伴侶、偷來的愛情
或許新鮮刺激,或許瘋狂美好,但這一切,終究是偷來的…
外遇傷害了一個幸福的家庭
或許你會說:問題其實早已存在,外遇並不是傷害的唯一因素
但是內心深處其實你知道,這只是外遇的藉口!
建築在傷害別人之下所得到的愛情,終究難以幸福…

(By the way, can someone read my latest blog and tell me if I am at least somewhat amusing? It need work, but some critical comments might help.)
