|PROMPT: Another effective form of comedy is satire. Take a shot at writing a satirical piece on a local or national news story, or respond to any other blogging groups' prompt from a satirical viewpoint. - Make it funny folks.
Okay, I have never written anything satirical in my life! I had to look up examples to even figure out how I was going to attack this prompt, leave it to Brother Nature to make me learn something...Alright here is my shot at it...
This is such a great idea, for both the riders and the observers! I mean, what could be more fun than jumping on a little uncomfortable bicycle seat and having it wedge right between your naked butt cheeks, mmmm comfortable! We have all had the feeling of a tiny bike seat wedging your shorts in a wad, why not remove the wad and just have the seat right up your butt? Add to that the thought of landing on that slanted bar, wow! Then, oh and how could we forget this? what happens if you accidentally ditch your bike, or your bike ditches you. There is nothing like the feeling of digging little pieces of gravel from exposed skin. Just think of the exciting places you will be picking gravel out of, *shiver*. We tell kids to make sure they put on their helmets so why would we think to tell adults to put on clothes?
Even better, just go be a witness to the event. Did you notice how lean and built the riders are? What could be better than watching these naked bodies pedaling away on their bicycles (my eyes! my eyes!) I think the best spot to watch would be the very end when they remove their junk from the bike and realize how wonderful they all look! Anyone want to join me?
AN UPDATE - I have taken off TEN POUNDS!
