    Cow Bell

    I'm looking for a cow bell like the ones you see fans clanging at bike races as the riders go by. Does anyone know where I could order one? I would like to buy my spousal unit one for Christmas so she can use it the next time we are at a race. Is there a particular type of bell that is used most often for this type of purpose?

    Dammit! You beat me to it. I can no longer listen to that song without hearing the cowbells and seeing that skit in my mind.

    Try a fram supply and feed store. Tractor Supply Company is the biggest chain I know of.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    I hope you are planning on buying more than just a cowbell for Christmas for her.

    If you want one that will make noise when you shake it, go to the farm supply store. Those cowbells will also be much lighter and less expensive. The ones at the guitar/drum store don't have the clanger inside. (gotta be a name for that thing besides clanger...or uvula...)

    Funniest SNL bit in the last decade. Anybody other than Farrel and Walken and it wouldn't have been funny, just weird.

    I know the feeling. Whenever I hear a cowbell, I think of that skit. As a matter of fact, on one of these home improvement shows (I think it is "Trading Spaces"), they play this music during the unveiling of the improvements and it has a cowbell in it. I can't help but to play along ala Will Farrell.

    I think I need help.

    I just found that skit on line and downloaded it. Holy crap that's too funny.
