Whos on First

April 7th, 2006 by Sommer

The universe does have a sense of humor!  Apparently someone chained up a bike in front of a restaurant at Ohio University with a message “indicating the bike was a pipe bomb.” Nothing like dropping the B word to make everyone freak out. Later it was discovered that it was publicity for a band from Pensacola named This Bike is a Pipe Bomb. This is how I envision the discovery going down:

Owner of bike: “It’s not really a pipe bomb.”
Police officer: “But it says right here it is.”
O: “Yeah, I know. But it’s really just some publicity for a band.”
P: “Oh, reeeallly? And what would this band’s name be?”
O: “This Bike is a Pipe Bomb.”
P: “Well is it or isn’t it?!”

You can see where this is going.

I have to hand it to TBIAPB (easy enough acronym to remember).The publicity stunt seemed to work. I had never heard of the band, which has been described as a folk and punk, and sampled some. What I heard isn’t too bad. 

UPDATE:
The po po in Athens are replacing the guy’s bike. He will receive between 800 and 1300 beans to purchase a new one! Sweet justice.

Barely relatable:
A poem about a bike by Daisy Fried. Her name is as charming as the name of her book My Brother Is Getting Arrested Again.

    haha this is great! My question is, did the PD replace the destroyed bike?

    I doubt it.

    Don’t you two wish you still lived here?

    Speaking of bikes, you remember when Pringle knocked Merideth clean off her bike with a water balloon slingshot? Classic.
