Seriously? “Via Fallows”?

I guess it sound better than “Via commenter Goetz at Gawker”

I put this up two weeks ago.

If I got it via a commenter at Gawker, why on earth would I have waited two weeks to post it?

Ha! Ya gott me Saroff. Only, I’m not Goetz.

Felix: ‘Cause it was recently reposted there. And you love Gawker. They write about bicycles all the time.

Doesn’t matter. I’ve annoyed even myself here.
