News, but not the serious kind
Ewwwwwww, we must be in France!
Welcome back to our ever-popular feature, “Stuff Maybe We Should Have Mentioned in the Photo Caption, but didn’t.”
Today we see riders in the Tour de France, and the caption informs us they are being greeted by “fans.”
Excuse me? I guess maybe that’s true, but one of those fans is stark naked except for a cape, a baseball cap and what looks like a small rodent clinging to an important body part.
If this is the suggested attire for this event, then I’ll just watch it on television.
Meanwhile, I can only hope the rodent scrambled to safety and that the mean-looking cyclist on the right managed to use his front wheel spokes in a very creative way. Look at him. You know he’s thinking about it.
