Funny you should ask. I took this picture a couple of weeks ago to try out my new white helmet and to prove that I wasn't too wimpy to ride in a snowstorm.

Is that your white car in front of the door?

This whole forum makes me think I should have been in the garage door business.

Just past those trees there is a flashing red light and a road crossing. Good thing this bike is black.



White light is not very helpful either.

Here's me riding my white bike to a Klan meeting in a snowstorm.
They wouldn't let me in because they believe only pinko's and liberals ride bikes.

That's why I haven't posted pics of my new white Azimut Leonardo 100 yacht.
Oh what the heck, I'll post it below. This is when I took it on a trip to Alaska.

I can't believe you've gotten two pages of blather...I mean discourse...with this cheesy.....I mean milky(?) thread.

Congrats.

P. S. Have I told you about my colonoscopy?

That's funny. I was thinking the same thing. By the way, have you ever watched Seinfeld?

A colonoscopy is not white. You might have to start a What can brown do for you thread.
