i'm really not sure how or why they connected being a single parent to bicycles.

I'm not sure how they connect being "apparently 16-25" to being a single parent, but I think I start to see the bicycle connection. they are looking for pre-driving age single parents who can pass for adults, but have to ride their bike to their job at the fast food restaurant.

if that's really the idea, i think they're horribly misled if they think they'll find the demographic they're looking for by coming to a forum for cycling enthusiasts.

Not sure how relevant that image is, but be ready to see a lot more of it in the near future, even if I have to create contexts in which I can use it.

This is going to sound terribly sad, but I think that image macro is actually supposed to be used in the context of a picture of a hot 'girl' who is actually a boy/man therefore trapping the unsuspecting netizen into being an unwitting *****exual.

Internet meme knowledge is nothing to be proud of.

Agreed. I knew about most as well, and God forbid you learned it from where I did.

First day and my innocence was lost.

Re-read the OP, they are looking for single parents who cycle, single parents being the angle. I doubt it's fake.

I kinda wonder how much luck they're going to have... I'd think most single parents (who presumably have one kid... kinda hard to stick two tots on a bike) would either drive, or not drive and walk/take public transportation/cabs...

But then, I could see that maybe places like Eugene might have what they're looking for. I hate to admit this this, but if they manage to find someone it might actually be half-interesting, although I suspect MTV would find some way to f*ck it up.

when i saw "mtv" in ss/fg, i assumed the thread was about major taylor velodrome. sadly, i was mistaken. what are the chances that they are looking for MOTORCYCLE enthusiasts, and mistook this forum as being related to motorcycles?
