BSNYC Friday Fun Quiz!

Did you know that tomorrow is World Car-Free Day?

Well, it is--at least according to somebody on Twitter.  I was tremendously excited when I saw this, but only because at first glance I thought it said "World Free Car Day:"

I'd totally take a free car, unlike David Byrne, who does not own one--though apparently he will rent one, at least according to this compendium of quotations:

I never listen to the radio unless I rent a car.
David Byrne

That's the equivalent of claiming to be a non-smoker because you never buy cigarettes, you just grub them off of others.

In other news, a reader informs me that a lucky woman recently received Mario Cipollini's autograph:

("I'll never wash this ass again.")

However, she didn't actually ask for it.  That's just how Mario Cipollini shakes hands.

And now, I'm pleased to present you with a quiz.  As always, study the item, think, and click on your answer.  If your'e right you'll know it, and if you're wrong you'll see a music video.

Thanks very much for reading, ride safe, and beware of Cipos bearing Sharpies.
