    What my hanging bike reminds me of...

    ...every time I see it. Must have taken too many art appreciation classes.

    So everytime you see it you are reminded that it is time for some wine, cheese, and bread?

    I can dig it as I am a wino who has a biking problem.

    It is not a dead duck- the correct term would be "Game" as I presume that it is a wild Duck. Same as your bike- I wouldn't be wild if I hung up there too long- I would be livid.

    Picasso was inspired by the bicycle. He created this bull's head from a saddle and a set of handlebars.

    Nope. I don't see it. It needs pie in the foreground.

    Ew, ew, ew! Not nearly as romantic as game hanging in a 15th Century farmhouse.

    Well, at least the side of beef is better than this Caravaggio, which is the first thing I thought of after seeing your original post combining hanging meat and art appreciation...

    I suppose I need a little R & R.

    When I saw the title of the thread, I envisioned a gallows, a noose, and a lifeless bike suspended by a rope around its headset. I wondered what the bike had done to deserve such an ignominious end. Hell hath no fury...

    OK, then I opened the thread. What a relief!
