School Pride


While riding my bike down Madison today I was passed by an old station wagon spewing all kinds of filth and noxious gases into the air. Rusted out wheel wells and duck tape on the bumper. A real piece of crap. In the rear window there was a sticker for Illinois State University. I went to ISU and I thought to myself, "This is not a good omen for alumni of ISU. One guy in an old jallopy and me on a friggin' bike." At least my bike doesn't emit noxious gases.

Well, actually, it's generally the source of power that emits the noxious gases, not the wheels, chassis, or drivetrain...

Too true. Don't ride behind me after taco night.

i went to ISU but didn't graduate. so, i don't count. or maybe i count even more as one of the ones who actually flunked out of ISU. i know, i'll still haven't figured out that one.
