We need some volunteers to help compile a "BikeForums" dictionary of unusual terms found on this website. It
might be useful for new members and guests who aren't familiar with some of them, or even Senior Members who may have forgotten!

I've begun a sort of rough copy, though we can't alphabetize it until it's completed. If you have any contributions,
feel free! We hope to compile them soon, since we have new members coming in all the time! Hey, don't be afraid, or say, "I can't think of anything," yours might be the ones we've overlooked! So get with it!

Here's a pretty hefty start:

Spam: 1) A disgusting potted meat unfit for human consumption. 2) Unsolicited advertisements. 3) Cat food.
4) Nitro fuel for John Stamstad.

Sumo wrestler: 1) Pete Clark. 2) A contestant in a popular Japanese sport in which the object is to push an
opponent out of the ring by grabbing onto available folds of fat, or "love handles." 3) Anyone who would like to
participate in this sport, professionally or at home.

Racso: 1) A well-oiled machine. 2) Souz-chef-de-parte. 3) Assistant brain surgeon.

Mike: 1) Senior member and Cool-cat. 2) Expert home brewer of fine fruit flavored beers and ciders. 3) Nemesis and mortal enemy of Sumo wrestlers. 4) Part-time Hero and Rescuer of Elderly Japanese Motorcyclists,
Children and Cats (But Not Dogs). 5) A gentleman by any description. 6) The first cyclist to win the Tour de France cycling backwards.

Amber Cherry Beer: The best beer for biking.

Hopped Apple Cider: The second best beer for biking.

Mackinac Island: An island off the coast of Michigan where motorized vehicles are not permitted and cyclists are welcomed by Ricardo Montalban.

Chocolate: 1) A deadly, but very enjoyable, sin, the eating of which is frowned upon by natural food weenies but
is sometimes eaten openly by cyclists such as John Stamstad, Technogirl and Pete Clark, the Sumo Champ. 2) Dog poison.

Motoring Primates: The modern day equivalent of buffalo hunters, which were known to kill buffalo in mass numbers, taking only the hides and leaving the carcasses to rot on the prairie; Motoring Primates use motor vehicles to kill animals for sport, leaving them to rot so that cyclists have to "dodge and puke."

Carl's Jr.: A former food service entity, which is no longer in business.

McDonald's: 1) "Chew and spew." 2) "Bag and gag." 3) "Coke and choke." 4) A great place to eat your lunch
in air conditioning, while you keep an eye on your bike through their really BIG windows (as long as your food is from home).

Weight Weenie: 1) NOT "Hunter", BikeForums MTB activist. 2) Ba-Dg-Er, BikeForums Moderator from Tuscon, Arizona. 3) Lance Armstrong. 4) Marco Pantani. 5) NOT Pete Clark, Sumo Champ. 6) NOT a Weight-Watchers
hot dog.

Chris "The Man" L.: 1) Cycling hill-climbing fanatic from Krypton, near Brisbane, Australia, who lives entirely on
fresh baked goods, wild honey, and more hills. 2) A mild-mannered, peace loving and gentle man who wants only to be left alone by Motoring Primates (see "Motoring Primates"). 3) A wild man.

Fubar5: Voted BikeForums Best Looking Male Member.

Headphones: Something we cyclists are divided over the issue of wearing while cycling.

Cycling Music: Something we cyclists all admit we listen to while cycling, but half of us only listen in our imaginations, since we are agreed that cycling while wearing headphones would not be safe.

The Partridge Family: NOT music.

Disco: Like swing music, only mutated into some hideous form.

Pampered Chef Cutlery: Preferred equipment for performing brain surgery on one's self, using an overhead mirror; though caution is advised as reverse reconnections have been known to occur.

Molson: 1) Fine Canadian Beer. 2) Preferred anesthetic for self-performed brain surgery using Pampered Chef
Cutlery and and overhead mirror. 3) Bicycle chain cleaner.

Green Slurpee: 1) Artificially flavored ice-slush beverage found in some convenience stores, or on the curb. 2)
Rocket fuel for cyclists who don't mind if the giant cup doesn't fit in their bottle cage. 3) Molson left in the freezer
too long.

Bad American: 1) Ted Nugent. 2) ?

Pete Clark: Bike forums member with waaa-aaay too much time on his hands, ultra-versatile spanky (how else can someone be a world champion at both cycling and sumo-wrestling?!)

I'm amazed I even got a mention.

Ah! Thank you, Ba-Dg-Er.

Revision #1:

Weight Weenie: 1) Ba-Dg-Er, BikeForums moderator from Tucson, Arizona. 2) NOT "Hunter", BikeForums respected MTB activist and absolute cool, mean biking dude overall. 5) NOT Pete Clark, Sumo Champ extraordinaire and sex-symbol revered around the world. 6) NOT Arnold Schwarzenegger. 7) A Weight-Watchers hot dog.

Thanks! We can get this done, if we work together!

Pete

Rainman: until recently a very active poster, commuter, bike modifier and all round good guy.
Present whereabouts unknown, foul (or fowl) play not out of the question, considering his habits
and haunts.

Bad American: Hunter who agrees with "Nuge", and could add more.

Carbon Fibre: A cloth that is glued or has an epoxy applied to it used for cycling stuff. Not metal.

Not a weight weenie: Pete Clark, Hunter, John Stamstad, Pat Irwin, Flyin' Brian Lopes, and Hans Rey.

Internal combustion engine: What you become after eating Spam.

Thanks Pete once again for making me laugh and getting my brain to think.

Revision #2:

Weight Weenie: 1) Ea-Dg-Br, Bi-keFor-uhmnus modern dancer from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, not to be confused with
Ba-Dg-Er, BikeForums moderator from Tucson, (not Tucson) Arizona. (Hey, I'm only a volunteer, everyone makes
mistakes--give me a break!)

Ba-Dg-Er: 1) Lightweight cycling enthusiast and undisputed cycling phenomenon. 2) NOT a weight-weenie.
3) Definately NOT a Sumo Champ or Weight Watchers hot dog. 4) All-around good sport. 5) Way too trusting.
