Thu, 07/28/2011 - 16:35 by Ananth in response to that one time we drag-raced hulk hogan

He stopped at the next light one block up and waved to us, before peeling out around the corner (in his truck). He looked like a young Hulk Hogan. I'll always remember him. 

Yuko's Tumblr contest to win a $20 gift certificate to Hey Chickadee is still on! It ends August 2nd, at which point one reblogger will be chosen at random. 

The latest orders are all out the door! You should receive a tracking number some time tonight. 

That's all I got. See you next week!

Somehow he (in your depiction) looks like Francis of left4dead to me. Which Francis would totally do, just to because he has fun being a jerk. (People are weird. I can totally believe this actually happened.)

Amazing. I love people. :) This sounds exactly like something my grandpa would've done as a young... trucker?

What a douchebag. I hate people like that who think the road's their playground.

For some reason

you guys manage to attract the weird yet awesome sort of people.

Where on earth...

Where-- Good lord where did this happen, anyway? I'd love to know what part of the city gets these sort of crazy memorable people. Certainly not midtown Manhattan, right? ('cause they all stick to the subway stations, man!)

On my road bike (before it was stolen grrr) I could normally beat most cars off the line and keep up with them on the flat for a while. Topping out at 35kmph so still not enough to stay with them for long. I guess it works better in the UK where we don't have as many straight roads. Still fun seeing the looks on some peoples faces when a bicycle is keeping pace with them. On the downhill though our club had some funny situations where we were travelling above the speed limit and a car overtakes us just because they figure someone on a bike couldn't possibly be going that fast. One of them got pulled over by the police for speeding once. Fond memories...

In a box truck? Really? Damn!
This poor fool must have been upset that a grandma sedan could out-accelerate him. Finding some cyclists was probably his only way to feel like he was 'faster' than someone. c.c
So. Weird.
Crazy New Yorkers!

Terrible. Cyclists' life

Comment by Emily (not verified) Fri, 07/29/2011 - 01:13

Cyclists' life isn't easy, especially when people like that are on the road. I've had a few close calls.

LMAO. Panel three makes this.

I'm not sure why, but I found myself reading everything that guy said in Gilbert Gottfried's voice.

I was just looking at homestuck, so that alt text reminded me of gamzee... creepy.
