    I’m not so sure being a climate alarmist is worth it.

  2. OzarkHillbilly says:

    “Nice knickers.”

  3. OzarkHillbilly says:

    “OK, now that you’re up there, how do you get down?”

  4. OzarkHillbilly says:

    Hmmm, if I’m reading Big Ben right it’s about half past 1872.

  5. OzarkHillbilly says:

    The ribbon is for “Best in Show”… at the Westminster Kennel Club.

  6. OzarkHillbilly says:

    “I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but the weird happeneth to them all.”

  7. David in KC says:

    OK, the UK version of the clown car is a lot more entertaining.

  8. Surreal American says:

    “A penny-farthing for your thoughts.”

  9. Mu says:

    Sir Rodney’s friends never let him live down to have worn yellow socks with a red ribbon.

  10. RockThisTown says:

    “OK, I’m wearing my Tweed. Which way to Tammany Hall?”

  11. RockThisTown says:

    “Rollin’ . . . rollin’ . . . . rollin’ on the river.”

  12. RockThisTown says:

    “You may have a bigger wheel . . . but I’ve got 10 speeds.”

  13. Hal_10000 says:

    Conservatives and Labour are both working to build a ruling coalition with the Silly Party.

  14. RockThisTown says:

    “Pardon me, have you got any left in your hip flask?”

  15. Moosebreath says:

    It’s not the size that counts.

  16. Franklin says:

    I thought I had nice wheels, but I spoke too soon.

  17. rodney dill says:

    “….. but where’s the kielbasa?”
    “Uh… that’s Big Ben, that ain’t no Polish Moon.”

  18. CSK says:

    The Masterpiece Theatre remake of “Breaking Away,” whilst delightfully Edwardian, lacked the breezy midwestern charm of the original.

  19. CSK says:

    “Why, yes, my dear chap: This is the Grand Prix, and I am indeed the Grand Prick.”

  20. rodney dill says:

    London was soon overrun by the biker gang – Hell’s Daleks

  21. Pinky says:

    Saturday, Saturday, Saturday.

    Proper gentlemen enjoying the fresh air.

    Monster front wheels.

    Saturday.

  22. DrDaveT says:

    Not an entry, but this photo immediately reminded me of the “Chimes of Big Ben” episode of the classic cold war TV series The Prisoner.

    OK, what the hell. Entry:

    “I am Number Two. You are Number Six.”
    “What do you want?”
    “Information. Or at least some talcum powder.”

  23. al-Ameda says:

    Soon to be run off the road by sensible people

  24. Pinky says:

    Now, even Lance Armstrong’s front wheel is juicing!

  25. Tyrell says:

    I would love to see Al Gore out here doing this!

  26. Paul Hooson says:

    “We all know who the big wheel is around here…”

  27. OzarkHillbilly says:

    @Franklin: Ouch!

  28. Pinky says:

    It ain’t the size of the tire, it’s the power on the pedals.

  29. Paul Hooson says:

    Downwardly mobile?

  30. Paul Hooson says:

    Merry old England, where the industrial revolution first came…and then went away…

  31. Paul Hooson says:

    Sadly, this this speaks volumes for the current state of the UK automobile industry…

  32. Paul Hooson says:

    I rather hate to say it, but the latest model Thames Thomas Doohickey is a rather disappointing one….

  33. Paul Hooson says:

    In Jolly Ole’ England these fellows entertain themselves by the hour on their ride doing their generic version of every Monty Python comedy skit ever written…

    “You split a participle!”

    “Did not!”

    “Did too!”

    “Did not!”

    “Did too!”

  34. John425 says:

    This early version of the “Have you any Grey Poupon?” ad was quickly abandoned.

  35. Pinky says:

    Every Jaguar owner knows to keep a bike in the trunk.

  36. John425 says:

    Downton Abbey fields it’s own “Hell’s Angels” chapter.

  37. Paul Hooson says:

    “Say old chap, I hear that in Baltimore in the states, when a youth tells his mom that he'[s going to the CVS, “do you want anything”, it has a whole different meaning than you think…”

  38. Paul Hooson says:

    Somehow, the bike club name of “Jehovah’s Witnesses” hardly strikes fear in anyone…

  39. Paul Hooson says:

    Bike Man One: “I say, those Baltimore riots are dreadful. That looted and burned CVS store for
    example…”

    Bike Man Two: “I know. If only they could have put up a sign that said “Educational Bookstore,
    then no rioters would have gone in there. That’s like kryptronite for rioters…”

  40. Paul Hooson says:

    Bike Man One: “Did you hear that the people are revolting in Baltimore?”

    Bike Man Two: ” Most assuredly..”

  41. Paul Hooson says:

    Bike Man One: “I say old chap, how can you tell it’s May Day in the states?”

    Bike Man Two: “Bernie Sanders declared?”

  42. Paul Hooson says:

    Bike Man One: “I say old chap, what do Paul Hooson, John Kerry, Barry Goldwater and Bernie Sanders all have in common?”

    Bike Man Two: “Four Jews who will never be president?”

  43. Franklin says:

    “What’s the hurry?”
    “It’s the 5th of November, they’re going to blow up Parliament!”
    “Sir, it’s May. I think the date format on your phone is set to U.S.!”
    “Blast those Yanks!”
