BSNYC Friday Fun Quiz!

In a week that has brought us not only the senseless beating of a pedestrian by a Nü-Fred armed with a U-lock but also perhaps the most revolting bicycle-themed music video ever recorded, it's no wonder that many of us are turning away from the horror and seeking more uplifting and inspirational cycling-themed entertainment . One source for such fare is the comic strip "Yehuda Moon & the Kickstand Cyclery," which takes a charming and whimsical look at the follies and foibles of cycling through the hatbrim-obscured eyes of its main character, a soulful bike shop employee and retrogrouch named Yehuda Moon.

Personally, I'm not a big comic strip fan in general, and I usually find the "Yehuda Moon" strip in particular to be a bit too mild for my liking. (By which I mean not enough people get kicked in the "pants yabbies.") However, I was clicking through it recently anyway and was shocked to find this:

If this adult-themed Indian cartoon "collabo" represents a sexy and bold new direction for "Yehuda Moon" (which of course it does not) I just might have to read more often.

Speaking of things that are wrong, I'm pleased to present you with a quiz. As always, study the item, think, and click on your answer. If you're right you'll see confirmation, and if you're wrong you'll see a Radio Shack commercial from 1984 featuring celebrity spokesperson Bill Bixby.

Enjoy the weekend, ride safe, and remember that U-locks are for locking, not coldcocking.
