We all need a good laugh!

With all of the gloomy and depressing news, statistics, and general BS floating around the Twitterverse, it’s about time we do something to lift up our spirits.

I’d like to hear your favorite biking-related jokes.

Since this isn’t a barroom and I can’t throw out the first drunk, I’ll throw out the first joke (compliments of Granddaughter Woo):

Why do some bikes have kickstands? Because they are too tired to stand up by themselves (rim shot!).

Ouch! Let’s hear your best (or worst) jokes.

See you along the I-O-Way next whenever.

Speaking of Monty Python, everyone should periodically view the Bicycle Repairman skit from Monty Python’s Flying Circus on your favorite video platform.

Thanks for the kind words,RDD!

BTW, several months ago, my local newspaper, The Daily Fishwrapper, ran a rave review of this skit. The review was written by P. Dinmypantz.

Words of advice from Granddaughter Woo: “Don’t waste your time trying to write out a bicycle itinerary using a broken pencil. It’s pointless!”
