Friday Funny

Beneath the Light of a Full MoonAs I've been preparing to engage in my biggest cycling tour ever, I've been collecting two-wheeled humor wherever I can find it.

I hope you bust a gut on at least one of my finds.

This cycling route makes the Tour de France look like a piece of cake.

If you don't read Twisted Spoke, you must not be into cycling. This is one of the most recent gems. (I'm not taking sides. I just think this is a great read.) Here is another.

Here's a quiz to determine if you are genuine cyclist. I scored 60!

The Lizard and I didn't need one of these. Have I ever leaked that we brought EIGHT bikes into this marriage? We each have a road bike and a mountain bike, he has two retired bikes, and I'm still hanging onto my kids' bikes in the hope some offspring somewhere someday might ride them. Preferably with us.

I once published what I thought was a well-written satirical poem in a newsletter, and that simple attempt to pass on a smile earned me the title of "Anti-Christian." The piece was written in poetic Biblical style, and someone who didn't care for it said it was blasphemous. So now here I go again, risking my reputation, sharing a link I find rolling-on-the-floor funny. I assure you, I am 100% Christian through and through. I believe God has a sense of humor and might even appreciate what I'm about to share. If you are offended by humor written in the form of scripture, please don't read this.

Cycling Beneath the Twilight of a Sliver Moon


  1. As usual your pictures are stunning! The moon is so huge I can hardly believe it.

    I am however not a cyclist, so I do not need the test to tell me that. I prefer walking if the distance is short or take the car if it's longer.

  2. Thanks, Cat!

    I cheated with that particular moon. It's photoshopped in from another image that was made using a longer lens. :)

  3. I laughed until I cried. I'm still hiccupping and snorting. Lady, that Cyclists' Apocrypha is so well-written, so hilarious, so absolutely bang-on... there is nothing further to add.

    The End.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

    I love your photos but eewww you can keep the rattler I have a hard enough time with the black rat snake that lives in our yard ...

    Can't wait until I have a little time to read more of your blog

  5. Amazing photos!!!

    And, the Lemond piece had me laughing, laughing, laughing. I cannot stand that guy. I don't like the name "Greg" and I don't like the name "Lemond". So there!

  6. Cyclists' Apocrypha was a good read. =) Did you write it?

  7. I love your pictures!

    I also love cycling, but I realize now I am just a novice because I never heard of the Twisted Spoke. I have repented and familiarized myself though! LOL!

  8. That's a lot of bikes! Do you have room for a car in your garage? lol A sense of humor is required in life and I think God knows that. :)

  9. Hey, Sandra!

    No, I did not write the Apocrypha, but it's so good, I wish it was mine! Apparently the author is Sam Walker. I know nothing more, except that he has a great sense of humor when it comes to bikes.

seldom heard, well must you keep your secrets
locked inside, hidden deep from view?
You can talk to me... (Stevie Nicks)
