Odd, the first link works fine for me. It's a translation of a Finnish newspaper article on the bike: "Jättihäpy accelerates the people". But the Jalopnik article gets the essentials.

There's no part of that name that I don't like.

"Cunt brings the art of anything."

Ah, the joys of automated translation.

I'm so glad no one was racing this thing in Mexico recently.

...am I missing some previous history on these types of post and the mods' reactions to them? Because I'm not expecting any sort of special treatment from them on this one...

Yeah, while it's not everyday that I get to post the phrase "Giant Vulva Bicycle Taxi", based on the linked content this is the most prosaic post in a while. You get 100% what's promised. A giant vulva bicycle taxi.

giant vulva bicycle taxi!

Sounds like a band name from the Elephant6 collective.

In other words, the awesomest band name ever.

I think the Mammovan falls flat compared to this gynobike.

I would love to see this in the US, mainly for the hilarious "omg its hurting families!1" reaction.

When you ride in a giant vulva bicycle taxi, be sure to wear protection.

While certainly not "The Dinner Party", it's definitely better than possibly-fake "miscarriages".

And, while we're here, I'd like to reflect on the subtlety of Frida Kahlo's approach. Can you imagine what her scandalised naysayers would say about Mimosa Pale's work?

Fantastic article. Just fantastic.

Far from view, wheeled vehicle crossing gogolilainen jättiläisnenä reveal a closer as seen from a woman's synnytyselimiksi. Pale invite passers-by ryömimään in the book and the birth there again. The explanatory memorandum also recalled that the active provocative book turns to the floor for the birth of the event and the beauty of the world to see with new eyes.

I'm going to be thinking about that phrase all day. "A woman's synnytyselimiksi..." I've always know that our words over here for the parts of the body associated with sex were pale and inferior to those of other cultures, but I had no idea that the Finnish excelled us so much in this.

Synnytyselimiksi!

Honestly, I'm surprised this thing isn't from Davis, California. We have strange bike sculptures here, but this even trumps us.

A Giant Vulva Bicycle Taxi?

'Round these parts, we just call 'em GVBTs. Though, some old timers still call 'em vagacycles.

Judging from all the surprise, I assume y'all don't have as many up north?

Fuzzy Skinner, are you a Jimmy Pardo fan? That sounds exactly like what Pardo would say in this situation.

Pardo stole that schtik from me!!!! OK not really.

I love Pardo! I crack up every time he does a "you remember..." bit. I knew someone would catch on to my plagiarism.
