    The Day the Fixie Died

    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    That's a girl. Flashing her underwear. Not a guy. Flipping the bird.

    Seriously. All FGG postings should require at least one interpretive element. Love it.

    When I post my new conversion, I'm going to shop in a ghost of abraham lincoln in his stove pipe hat riding my bike into heaven and looking down wistfully at ford's theater. june cleaver will be on his handlebars with a fresh pie in her hands.

    June Cleaver should be on a pennyfarthing going the other way about to throw a pie at Lincoln. Bonus points for John Wilkes Booth laughing manically on the back.

    heh, I am trying to get a buddy to do a painting of Tupac and Biggie holding hands doing doubles jumprope.

    but this made me think that them riding a tandem together would be even funnier.
