What would a cyclist do a commuter wouldn't?

This a game! Poster should answer the question of the last poster and then make another question. The topic is loosely based on the Cyclist vs Commuter video on youtube and think of this as the game version of that video!

Answers don't have to be accurate nor realistic. In fact, the more preposterous the answer, the better! Repeat questions are allowed.

Sample question:

What would a cyclist do a commuter wouldn't with their legs?

Sample answer:

Remove the leg hairs with Brazilian Bikini Wax

and the game starts now!

What would a cyclist do a commuter wouldn't with their saddle?

You're making me miss the dumpster vodka thread. I didn't think that was possible.

Sorry... Just a little confused.

Is this a comparison of what a Bicyclist would to to thier legs verses a Pedestrian?

You're close! Yeah, I suppose you can also answer based on your assumption. This game is based on this video:

I didn't expect anyone would be offended being called a "cyclist".

What should we call ourselves then? Happy meal on wheels?

Don't anyone here understand parodies? Way too serious about the hobby there's not a bit of room for humor?

You're trying to do humor by committee and your premise just isn't funny. I don't think you understand how parody works.

Tne other thread was definitely going to lead to a stupid argument because a bunch of people were going to say a bunch of nasty stuff hiding behind the shield of "humor.". This thread is just a really, really boring idea.

And if you insist on starting these joke threads, take them to foo where they are supposed to go.

No, no one cares enough to be offended. We're just sick of people starting inane pointless threads on General Cycling.

They'd scratch before just sniffing the seat.

why would a cyclist eat a big mac & a commuter ride on solid rubber tires with spikes?

Yeah, it really doesn't help when the op did the old issuing a generalized insult (snob) then saying "if you are offended, that says something about you not me" bit. Classic troll maneuver.

How about this thread idea: "What would a troll do that a well respected BF member wouldn't?"

Humor is subjective. If it is funny to you it is funny---to you.

I understand the sort of jokes you are making and hoping others will make here .... but don't find them funny. If I don't find it funny, it isn't .... to me and apparently to a lot of others here. Were are not humor-deficient, just humor-different. You need to be more accepting.

I'm fine with no pointless threads, but pointless threads could be a symptom of no threads.

I'd been away from BF for a while. Sounds like I'm lucky I missed that one. Kind of wish I'd missed this one.
