Country swing

A photo of the damage done to Wall Street’s “Charging Bull” by a banjo-swinging Texican. (Stolen for purposes of satire and parody from
Michelle V. Agins of The New York Times.)

It has been said of a poor marksman that he couldn’t hit a bull in the butt with a banjo.

This dude went for the head shot and only nicked a horn.

Speaking of colloquialisms, this is not what they mean when they say, “Fuck with the bull and you get the horn.”

    What do you bet that Wall Street will be lobbying for extensive background checks for banjo purchases?

    That’s not news. It was an excellent demonstration of my contempt for wall street and the dumpster. But, not news. This is news for most americans. Lift the tariffs so I can get some new sneaks!

    Here’s one for ya – https://www.bicycleretailer.com/retail-news/2019/09/03/e-bike-retail-tour-set-october-key-southern-california-market#.XXaEWihKjIV
    The BR&IN’rs will ride e-bikes from a MOTO maker as they visit e-bike dealers. Can anyone else hear the theme from “JAWS” playing in the background?

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Yeah, that struck me as an odd decision too. But it seems Yamaha is hunting dealers for its e-bikes, and not only among its powersports shops.

      • larryatcycleitalia Says:

        Well, OF COURSE they are! What better way to grab the entire market? Remember how the original energy bar was a bike shop only thing- until they were popular enough to be sold everywhere, including your local Stop-n-Rob?

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        E-BIKES ÜBER ALLES! Ve shall roll on a road of e-bones! (That’s discarded batteries to you.)

        Coming soon to a living room near you: e-Zwift. You know, for when you need that little something extra whilst racing your invisible friends.

          Bicycle: bi + cycle equals two wheeled vehicle, with or without a motor.

          Motorcycle: motorized wheeled vehicle, number of wheels not specified

          Automobile: auto + mobile = anything with a motor or engine that gets you around, doesn’t specify number of wheels, or any at all, and doesn’t specify on land, air, or sea

          Sorry, just got done explaining to my kids why old people call phones “telephones” and now I can’t stop. “So, Dad, then you’re Bluetooth speaker is really a telephone?” “So, Dad, isn’t a hover board really an automobile?”

          UGGH! Don’t get me started on ZWIFT. Eurosport coverage of the Vuelta here in Italy doesn’t have many sponsors so the gawddamn ZWIFT spots run over and over and over. Then there’s something called C-Date which appears to be a way to hire prostitutes as far as I can tell.
          I’m not in the market for either, grazie!
