in other tragic news...


first the torso in a suitcase and now this!?!
I read on gothamist about some sad sad news for the city of new york... the party bike has been officially banned. sigh. this now means that groups of 6 overweight tourist can no longer pretend to pedal a huge bike-like contraption that takes up 3 lanes and goes five miles per hour through times square during rush hour. honestly, i don't know what goes through the lawmakers heads sometimes.
i guess it's back to those big red tour buses and single pedi-cabs for you out of towners!

We didn't have the Party Bike in Orlando, but we did have a smaller version where one poor schlub would haul around no more than 2 people... usually drunk people. And once I snapped a picture of one of the bike guys sitting forlornly on his passenger-less bike chomping on a giant turkey leg.

hahahahhahha!! i am seriously laughing out loud picturing the bike guy alone and chomping on a turkey leg....was it some sort of anchonistic medieval theme or something?
