Sick 'Em!

UPDATE: June 09 - The link below to a blog post railing against cyclists with which I had serious issues doesn't work any more, because the post has been taken down!

I think Theresa of Utterance was either made to see the error of her ways, or was simply annoyed to the point that she no longer wanted to deal with the cyclists who were attacking her in the comments. Either way, some ugly anti-cyclist material has vanished from the Internet. Thanks to all who showed up, and thank you Theresa for taking that content down.

I didn't bother posting a comment on this ridiculous blog post because I am tired and cynical and lazy, but I thought that some of you might be interested in reading this extra stereotypical rant about cyclists, and perhaps might enjoy letting 'em have it. I am also really saddened by the use of the very same photo I used recently in such an ugly, angry context.

I also want to point out that while it is nice to have something on which to focus our outrage, it would be unfair to get all crazy and say "see? This is how drivers think of us!" This is just what one individual idiot thinks of cyclists. There are cyclists who behave in ways that are idiotic too, so while I think this person could use some education, let's not tar with too big a brush, OK?

Have a Great Weekend,

PS - I ended up posting a comment after all, but it wasn't exactly productive.

I ain't even going to look. Arguing with idiots is like trying to wash a turd.

You know what? I think you've got the right idea. I know I started it, but I kind of wish I had just shrugged it off and not wasted my time on that nonsense. Once again, Cafiend proves himself wise,while using a turd metaphor.

"Once again, Cafiend proves himself wise,while using a turd metaphor."

Does he use turd metaphors often?

Rantwick said...

Yes, yes he does.

Wow. It's as if you know me.

I do get a lot of mileage out of our high cultural pretensions versus our biological realities.

Biology happens.
