Where's Linux Author to yell at us about how evil Microsoft, Ebay and Paypal are and how they are all scams

I'm guessing people that are into art would not mind picking it up. At least it's not overly offensive and it's in style.

Jebus, don't let DTrain see that! He'll be getting all atrsy-fartsy cerebral on us and telling us how the play of light and shadow speaks to his id.

But hey, it's only a penny

I think that's an histerical picture and if it was on my wall it would be the reason why i wake up laughing every morning... i think she was minding her business just doing some "lite" shopping into town

I've heard a few other females riders I know talk about "Bicycle Smiles" ,

but +1 I didn't think many other guys knew what they were. Telenick surprised me with his response.

And oh yea...I think the painting is rather funny. I'd hang it in my bike shop in Italy!
