Naked Bike Ride in Miami Protests Gulf Oil Spill
The Miami New Times ^ | June 9, 2010 | Amanda McCorquodale

Posted on 06/09/2010 5:20:50 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

If you're like us, the first impulse you had after seeing your first oil-soaked seagull was to rip off your clothes and hop on a bike. This Saturday, you can do just that in the company of strangers at the Miami World Naked Bike Ride to protest our nation's dependence on that gooey, wildlife-killing, black gold.

OK, so the organizers put an asterisk next to the word nudity, encouraging imaginative costumes and well-placed body paint. In other words, bare as much as you dare.

World Naked Bike Ride is an international movement, practiced in cities like Vancouver, British Columbia and Auckland, Australia, with the following mission: "We face automobile traffic with our naked bodies as the best way of defending our dignity and exposing the unique dangers faced by cyclists and pedestrians as well as the negative consequences we all face due to dependence on oil, and other forms of non-renewable energy."

Will Miamians have the balls to bare all like these international cities? And will all the exposed balls stop the tar balls from flowing this way? Probably not, but our only other idea is to stop up the leak with Sarah Palin's giant bouffant.

******

The first ever Miami World Naked Bike Ride happens this Saturday at the sun-friendly time of 4:30 p.m. The ride starts outside a Miami BP gas station at Biscayne and 10th Street, then heads to South Beach via the Venetian Causeway.

Is it wrong to hope for some spills and road-rash?
Because some ideas are so stupid they SHOULD result in injury.

No - best pictures will be what happens to the guys who ride nude on a bike and hit a pothole or stone.
OUCH, that has got to hurt

Re naked women doing the same. If they’re smiling, their seat fits just right.

Now, if Rosie O’Donnell and Helen Thomas are riding nude, all bests on the future existence of the world, are off.

1. Read my lips. No. Bad. Naked.

2. Bouffant? Have these tools actually seen the gov lately? Obviously not. If they had, they’d want her out there.

There is an inverse relation between females who get naked in public and females who look good naked.

I still have the poster that came in Queen’s album “Jazz”. About 100 naked chicks on bikes at the starting line. Probably something to do with the line from “Fat-Bottomed Girls”, “Get on your bikes and ride!”.

There is logic there, see, the oil execs will see all of the naked liberals and then they will want to commit suicide by stuffing themselves into the pipe thereby sealing the leak with 1,000's of dead oil execs.

“So...how exactly is riding a bicycle nekkid going to stop the oil leak?”

Well, you know how the A-10 Warthog is so ugly that it is repelled by the ground rather than it flying?
Well, a similar principle applies here.
The sight of so many pasty flabby flappies will compel the planet to stop seeping oil into the environment out of shock and fear.

They are liberlas first, and "protesters" second.

This bike ride has been planned since March if not earlier.

It is an annual event.

They are hijacking newsprint with claims that it is "to protest the oil spill".

Commies suck.
