Now that's good spondee.
("I Drink." "Milk shake.")
Still not sure I understand spondee but whatever.
Secondly, the maker of Chuey Brand cycling hats has been arrested in San Francisco under unhappy circumstances. (Obviously most arrests occur under unhappy circumstances, but by all accounts this is one of those cases that's unhappy because the person getting arrested was the victim of injustice and police brutality.) By way of helping him, Stevil Kinevil of All Hail The Black Market is donating t-shirt proceeds, and his supporters have also set up a legal and medical aid fund. If you feel like helping him please do, and if you don't you can just come to Philly and tuck money into the elastic waistband of my sweatpants, and I promise you I'll use those funds to go on a Bike Nashbar shopping spree. (Because you can never have too much Primal Wear.)
Lastly, here's a humorous video I saw on the Twitter:
I LOLed, and then I lulled, and then I listed left, and then I finally fell hard with my face onto the edge of the coffee table, and now I lisp.
If you'd like to donate to my dental reconstruction surgery, you can do so here.
I love you.
And now, I'd like to present you with a quiz, and so I will. As always, study the question, think, and click on your answer. If you're right $500 will magically appear in your wallet (but only if your wallet is made out of the hide of the highly endangered African wild ass), and if you're wrong you'll see a steep bicycle.
Thanks very much for reading, ride safe, and either I'll see you in Philadelphia or I won't.
I love you,

(We're supposed to chuckle because the cyclist is getting hit by a car.)

4) There's no surer sign of America's decline than:

5) If you donate $65 to "a free bicycle-powered pop-up art gallery that travels the world," you'll receive:

6) According to "Bicycle Retailer and Industry News," Budnitz Bicycles has developed a proprietary technique called "Budnitzing," which will reduce creaking and further enhance the durability of titanium frame tubing.
