City Bicycle-Seat Holocaust on Capitol Hill?
posted by July 15 at 11:37 AMon
I just got this email from my intrepid intern Marti, about something she saw yesterday on Capitol Hill:
There was a mass herd of naked bikers on Madison and 12th, around 2:50 pm. I’d guess 40-50 of them. Mostly guys, although there were a few naked women donning ample amounts of body paint. The guys were buck-naked though (sans paint). I was completely fascinated by their schlongs as they floated past—I stared blatantly at them, because they were stacked into these weird little piles on top of the bike seats (ouch). One of them said something about defeating Bush as they went past, although the comment was isolated and whatever message they were trying to convey was lost (if there was a message at all.) Do you know what this was about?
Dear Marti: No, I do not, but thanks for asking and for your estimable schlong-noticing skills. Everyone else: Know what yesterday’s nekkid bike ride was for/about? Troops out of Iraq? Bush out of the White House? Bike seats out of buttcracks? Please share.
