The '...is your new bicycle' meme is your new bicycle. I like bikes.

I knew the bicycle. The bicycle was a friend of mine. Barack Obama, you're no bicycle.

A woman without a man is like Obama without a bicycle.

Or something.

I am getting a new bicycle next month, but I am afraid I won't like it as much as I like Obama, MetaFilter and LOLcats. What should I do?

I love it when annoying, stupid memes that seem headed for popularity are deconstructed and their stupid origins are made known. It takes the wind out of their stupid sails.

And remember to keep your fish in your pants and not on your bicycle. Which I guess means you shouldn't wear your pants on your bicycle... or something.NSFWimbledonStadium

Damn, tepidmonkey. I'm both disappointed and unsurprised that someone has gone there.

Oh well: two unicycles and some duct tape is your new bicycle.

Barack Obama is constructed out of three trillion miniature Chuck Norrises.

Wait, I think it's the other way around

I just hope this new meme doesn't turn recumbent. (It's a vicious cycle)

Barack Obama will not threaten to stab you and, in fact, cannot speak.

Barak Obama complimented your new haircut even though you didn't drop any hints.

Barak Obama gave you 5 quarters to finish your laundry even though you only had a dollar.

Barak Obama checked the air pressure of your tires while you went inside to pay for your gas.

DIPLOMATIC SHARK WANTS YOU TO SIGN THE TREATY

This seems like as good a time as any to remind you of my favorite stupid site with endless reloading possibilites: Horse Hate

In semi-seriousness, did the one about Barack Obama giving up his seat make anyone just else ever so slightly uncomfortable? I feel like the whole seat giving-up concept has some racial undertones. Perhaps that is ludicrously hypersensitive, though.

I am, in fact, your new bicycle.

You're welcome.

The type of idolatry illustrated by this phenomenon got me to put the first thing up on the internet crap dump I bought the other day since I was buying a for serious website and at $8 bucks a piece why not two?

CHAIRMAN OBAMA; a juxtaposition of propaganda.

The Ron Paul one is way better.

Ron Paul used "beg the question" incorrectly.

Ron Paul asked you something about John Galt.

Ron Paul is drawing stares with his talk of fluoride and chemtrails.

Ron Paul wrote you a prescription for colloidal silver.
