News, but not the serious kind
Oh, so this is a SERIOUS bike lane!
Okay, listen up, troops! I’ve got your duty assignments for the anti-Gaddafi army!
Smith, you’re riding in a tank. Jones, you’re a bombardier. Williams, you fire rocket-propelled grenades and blow up big stuff all day long. Johnson, you’re on Bike Patrol. Williams, you’re…
What is it, Johnson?
Well, you know, I mean it doesn’t sound very cool to just ride a bike.
Really, Johnson? But it’s a ten-speed two-wheeler, very shiny, and you get to shoot your AK-47 from the handlebars.
Yeah, but it sounds kind of dangerous, what with all the heavy weaponry around.
I mean, I’ll be pedaling along the front lines at 15 miles an hour. How fast can those artillery shells travel?
I think they go a little faster than that, Johnson. You’d better try to pedal harder…
