BSNYC Friday Fun Quiz!

Did you know that tomorrow is World Car-Free Day?

Well, it is--at least according to somebody on Twitter.  I was tremendously excited when I saw this, but only because at first glance I thought it said "World Free Car Day:"

I'd totally take a free car, unlike David Byrne, who does not own one--though apparently he will rent one, at least according to this compendium of quotations:

I never listen to the radio unless I rent a car.
David Byrne

That's the equivalent of claiming to be a non-smoker because you never buy cigarettes, you just grub them off of others.

In other news, a reader informs me that a lucky woman recently received Mario Cipollini's autograph:

("I'll never wash this ass again.")

However, she didn't actually ask for it.  That's just how Mario Cipollini shakes hands.

And now, I'm pleased to present you with a quiz.  As always, study the item, think, and click on your answer.  If your'e right you'll know it, and if you're wrong you'll see a music video.

Thanks very much for reading, ride safe, and beware of Cipos bearing Sharpies.

--Wildcat Rock Machine

(This blew minds at Interbike 1860.)

3) This bicycle features:

--"No recumbent bicycles allowed"
--"All bicycles must have working breaks"

(Mavic engineer testing the company's new ultralight accordion.)

5) DFU stands for:

--Diminutive Frenchman Unit
--Demonstrative Francophonic Ululation
--Don't Forget Underpants
--Don't Fuck Up

6) 110 days after being mounted by Mario Cipollini, this statue of a male lion gave birth to a litter of six cubs.


7) Which castmember of the 1986 film "Pretty In Pink" recently crashed during the bike leg of a triathlon?

--Jon Cryer
--Harry Dean Stanton

That explains Rob Fords sixth finger.

Elizabeth Church, The Globe and Mail: Why did you personally ask staff to do paving outside your family business?

Ford: They didn’t do any paving.

(there is freshly paved road there)

Let me cut to the chase here. This is very simple. Like I’ve done over the last 12 years, if there’s potholes, they have to get fixed. If you go up to Greensboro [where the Ford family business, Deco Labels and Tags, is located,] I think you can see it quite evidently, the edges of the road, there’s huge pieces of concrete, uh, asphalt that were missing. The culverts were ripped up. That’s city work that had to be done. Deco didn’t get any preferential treatment here. I have done this over and over and over when people call me. Potholes should be fixed in the city between three and five days. We waited three to four years. And, whoever’s saying that we jumped the queue is an outright liar. We never jumped the queue. We just wanted to have the road fixed because we had hundreds of people coming. And if someone twists their ankle, the first thing that people would say [would be] ‘Well, you knew there was potholes there and you never called them in.’ That’s all we did.”

Church: Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong [an ally of the mayor] says you need to separate your role with the business and your role as ....

Ford: So what am I supposed to do?

Church: Get someone else from Deco to call.

Ford: Okay, you know what? Then they’d be saying that we’re hiding behind someone at Deco.

(that must be one fat dude)

I have nothing to hide. We went out there, no, hold on. We went out there and got the potholes fixed. What is the prudent thing to do when you’re hosting a party. You want someone to twist their ankle on a city road? No. ‘Cause then we’d be sued. So I, we didn’t get anything done out of taxpayers’ money, it didn’t cost ... the taxpayers had to pay for, obviously, to fix the road, but that had to be done anyways. And when you’re hosting a party, that’s the prudent thing to do. You don’t let someone twist an ankle when you know you’re hosting hundreds of people. So that’s the bottom line.”

Reporter: Was this scheduled work Mayor Ford?

Ford: No pothole’s scheduled. When you go out, when someone calls me, I’ve been doing for years and years and years, someone calls me and says, ‘Here, got out and fix it.’ I do it for hundreds and thousands of businesses. I’ve done it for hundreds and thousands of homeowners. If someone has a pothole in front of their house, in front of their business, I got out and fix it, just like I did for our company. Nothing, there was no difference here.”

Reporter: Don’t you understand about the optics of this?

Ford: “There’s no optics. There is no optics.”

Councillor Doug Ford interjects: “Why don’t you trying calling on your street? We’ll be there in five minutes.”

Bend over for Cipo? Shake hands with Mr Happy?

Kiss Frilly's sweet cheeks?

It's all good. Just don't piss people off by making up stupid words...

Oh well. Every day above ground is a good day, and it's time to celebrate Friday!

Congrats on the big win, Frilly.

I think you should also try to win my super-special tree contest:

I think every single Wildcat reader should enter my contest, because it isn't lame at all. Really. It is cool. My Mom says so, anyway. Ah, nevermind.

i couldn't help myself, but i read Cipo's biography on his website. the last sentence reads "he created a clothing line and a range of carbon steel road bikes that are produced exclusively in Italy."

carbon steel? a frame that combines the best of carbon and steel? wtf?

They hate our freedom. That must be it.

But at least we know from yesterday's post that they don't steal bikes in Boulder.

hey, dudes (and babble), frilly is not letting any of you sniff her sox for congratulating her, if you know what i mean.

i won yesterday and didn't get any congrats... what's the deal.

btw, congratulations, frilly. can i sniff your sox?

Just got back from a first look at babble's blog. It is good, I think.

singlespeedwaster said...

Made the top 50, and car-free! Surely this merits public recognition of some sort.

Cheers, Rantwick. Tell that to the guy who left a message detailing how how disturbing and offensive he found it.

Mc Fly, most times it's much better before

babble on said...

Dear Wildcat,

Since I'm on a roll anyway, and since you brought it up, Sweet Snobbinses, there's something I've always wanted to know. If a man and wife from Kentucky get divorced, are they still brother and sister?


McFly said...

You know what a divorce or either a tornado occurring in Kentucky have in common? No matter which one hits some bodies losing a trailer. If your going to do white trash jokes do them right babble. At least you're kinda cute. Showered yet?

McFly said...

9:05 to 9:44, do the math. That's EFFICIENCY.

Anonymous said...

Well that must have been hot McFly.

McFly said...

You know the deal, it's not ALWAYS quantity. Quality baby. My cross tires do not fit. Time to bust out the TIG welder.

Trailer Park Cyclist said...

Lay off the trailers, alright? I'm hyper-sensitive and stressed out as it is; all this trailer talk makes it that much harder to sober up.

And I'm pretty sure all those leg shots at Babe Alone's are actually Wild Crackrock Machines's gams photoshopped in. I'm positive about the one in heels, I remember when Snob shoplifted those shoes.


McFly said...

I grew up in a trailer park. It was the best of times it was the worst of times.

babble on said...

He borrowed them at me.

I was going to put in an ass shot to round out the picture for you, but mine doesn't hold a candle to Frilly's sweet cheeks...

Babble's blog is bonkers. Brilliantly bonkers. As they say in that there London, she's a nutter! Pronounced natter. More nips than Cips too.

Completed a race and thought to share my experience with the community.

Signed up for a race with a buddy. It was to be a long race between gentlemen.

My fellow and i both made decent time in the flats, but fatigue begun just set in and we started to climb.

We knew the climb was large, but we both became exhausted.

It started to snow. My companion became more exhausted, as I began to be fueled by my generous fat reserves.

My companion fell and expired.

I decided I shant leave his body and used a stone and bark to make a crude Bob with which to haul his frozen corpe out of the wilderness.

I continued to ride and it continued to snow. Sometime then I became lost, as the road was obscured by snow.

I wandered for what seemed an eternity, having ate my last Cliff Bar on the flats.

My stomach pained for food so much I began to look back at my fallen companion. The thought revolted me and the search continued.

The disorientation an weakness grew. The body was dismembered using a multitool, starting with the bicep. It was disgusting at first but my body craved the sustenance for vitalization.

This continued for ages, until the forest yielded a road, a massive descent, some flats, and the finish line.

Tears streamed down my eyes as I hugged by half eaten companion, for we had mad 1st and 2nd place, respectively.
