Had a little fun with GIMP (It is recumbent related:) )

Just a little image manipulation involving my wife and her trike!

Shouldn't it be a tadpole trike though? That would look a little more realistic at least.

What can I say, N_C! My wife has a delta! Who cares about realism anyway! It's a fun photoshopping (or to be more precise, GIMPing since I use GIMP)

Can't you GIMP her onto a tadpole trike leading the pack of stockcars? Even if you just GIMP her head onto the body of another person. Like you said it is fun GIMPING.

Goor LORD this sounds so perverse. Good thing we're talking about recumbents here. In another context it could mean something a whole lot differant.

True enough! I wanted her on HER trike though.....besides, it looks more incongruous, and that's the whole point of the exercise, is the incongruity!

EDIT: Cognitive dissonance often makes humor funnier!

Scary pic. She looks a little loose. Might need an air pressure adjustment.

Also, she's about to trade paint with Kevin Harvick. Not smart without a HANS system.

(Yes, I'm a NASCAR fan, and I also ride recumbents. How's that for a strange combination?)

No stranger than anything else I've seen
