I just think it is a funny picture, it cracks me up. Maybe the absurdity of it?

While I wouldn't consider "fatties" a "protected class", I would say that going after children is not a very endearing quality. In MOST cases I blame the PARENTS for children that grow up with poor eating habits. It all starts when they are young.

No, but that girl is pretty young to be getting this kind of treatment from a bunch of fat squids on the internet...

Squid

Generally SQUID means Stupidly Quick Until I'm Dead, and can be no gear, or full on Power Ranger leather racing suit.

Hmmmmm......my understanding has been that squids were squirrely kids, classified by their idiocy and lack of skill, yet often spotted due to their flat bill hats with stickers on them. I've seen a few squids try to dress the part before, with their fresh pleather from Cycle Gear.

However, this guy has a nice bike, nice boots, and what look to be nice leathers. He's got good form and is looking through the turn. I'd say he is not a squid.

I think Bill was just making a funny though. I got the play on words.
