The very best signature line on the internet

Louis, I've been meaning to mention that in my carefully considered opinion, you have the very best signature line on the internet. The whole internet. In the world.

By the way, now that you've got my attention, how many bikes do you own Terrierman?

Louis' signature line has all the elements of great literature...



It's stated in classic negative fatalism (nothing goes right)

It touches on toilet humor (underwear reference)

It's inclusive of the reader (your underwear)

It doesn't have, or even need, punctuation

It's easily translated into over 500 languages

And it rhymes (right/tight) !!!

Of the 10 bikes in my garage, I'm sure there are 1 or 2 spares. Come and pick one up!! Maybe I could trade for a terrier!

I agree. I always chuckle when I see it. It reminds me of "Don't get your shorts in a bunch". Stapfam...I believe that would be "knickers in a knot" for you

I only have one bike. I'm in dire straights. As a cure, I would be willing to take any off your hands that you don't need. Anything with a 58.5 cm top tube, Ti frame (or might be willing to downgrade to CF), Campy Record UT, (or downgrade to Shimano Dura Ace or SRAM Red) drive train and Lew wheels would do nicely! Thanks for your consideration.

Oh, I would be willing to pay for the shipping.

And white bikes are NOT acceptable.

p.s. wind chill here right now is -18F!

Knickers in a twist.

Reminds me of a joke:

At a break during the international beer convention, the president of Anheiser Busch stops by the bar and orders a Bud Lite. Next the president of Coors comes by and orders a Coors Lite. The president of Guiness stops by and orders a Coca Cola.

"Why did you order a coke?" the two Americans ask.

"Well," says the president of Guiness, "I figured if you weren't drinking beer, I wouldn't either."
