Removed: Parody epic ride to Khardung La
« on: October 17, 2013, 01:20:48 AM »
{silence except for crickets chirping...}

Wow, you guys are a tough crowd!

I originally started this thread with a ride report parody using what I thought was funny, "reality-tv" style, over-the-top narration, and what I thought were obviously and badly photo-shopped images I took on a ride up the Mt. Washington (New Hampshire, USA) road.

Believe it or not, I meant it to be funny.  Based on the replies below, I clearly don't know my audience!  I apologize if I wasted everyone's time, at best, or if I offended anybody, at worst.  You never know, I guess!

I'll post a proper report...

Nice!  You had me all the way up until I saw the summit house.  I hiked up there many years ago. . .


Cheers,

Hey,
Did you ever post what saddle bags those are on your bike?  Look like something I might want.   :)

I actually enjoyed the parody.  Sorry to see it get panned.

Hey, I liked it!
I think most of us played along or just ribbed you back in jest.

I know - my reply to the Dans' posts was tongue-in-cheek, too.  Too subtle?  Who knows?  Who cares?

I wouldn't say it got panned, though; that would have been too much for my fragile self-esteem to handle...  ;)

Naw - if I were mad, I would have included a  >:( , of course!

Don't be vexed, REpozer - the whole thing was just a failed attempt at a lame joke, that's all.  Anyway, it's well-known that comedy should be left to the professionals!
