    Do any of your employers let you customize your office to accommodate your bicycle riding? I mean, sure you have to abide by the rules and stuff, it needs to be presentable.

    Don't know which is funnier- the article or the fact that someone read it and thought it was true. Definitely well done satire.

    That's what's great about a good Onion article for a moment or two they got you.
