The Dangers of Cycling


Here's an old Paul Hogan routine from his pre/Crocodile Dundee days.

This could have easily been a Benny Hill skit. Why can't I see cyclists like this on my rides?

Maybe you're just not riding in right places. On one of my evening rides, I was heading west in the carriage lane on Commonwealth avenue, up near
Boston College. It was a very warm evening in June, perfect for a ride. And I see a young woman up ahead, on rollerblades, heading east. As she gets
closer, I realize she is wearing a very revealing leotard.. and the only other item of clothing is a baseball cap. And she passes, and a longing glance, (from me)
shows that the leotard is a thong. Very nice. The point being that local colleges are one place for enjoying the scenery.

Sometimes, you just need to let the ol' Y chromosome do its thing.

We men got so distracted. The bit is funny because it's true.

Ahhh... the days of Hoges and Strop and the delightful Delvene Delaney. Who is married to Strop or John Cornell, in real life.

Except for the omission. Benny would have had a guy watering with a garden hose somewhere in anything that long. .

People who don't know Paul Hogan before he was in Crocodile Dundee are really missing out. Some of his bits, like Safari for the Great White Whino are classic.
