Motorcycle club fear [Mar. 20th, 2010|02:04 pm]

Dear Internet:

I was driving down Western Avenue in Los Angeles last night and a biker guy pulled into traffic ahead of me on his large Harley.

He was wearing the colors of the Chosen Few Motorcycle Club, which is an old school black west coast outfit I'd heard of.


I have questions.

Do these guys often wear shiny skull masks?

If not, was he wearing the skull mask for a special occasion like an initiation or baby shower?

If not, was he wearing the mask in order to go do some crimes?

If not, was he wearing the mask because he's a complete goofball and does stuff like this all the time and the other guys are all "there goes Eugene again!"

If not, was he perhaps not an African-American motorcycle club member at all but one of the numberless army of the dead who walk the earth until the end of days who decided to motorcycle instead of walking?

I thank you for your attention to this matter.

Maybe he just wanted to scare the crap out of you.

Sounds like a good Friday night for a biker guy!

Hopefully he's not a scout leader!

I suspect that biker wears it all the time.

There seems to be a large overlap between "macho tough guy" and "boy." Like this chrome mask. Or gangstas dressed like pre-schoolers.

The Real Answer: he just got that skull mask! and his second cousin's wife's nephew made it for him.

i have done a lot of thinking on this. pretty sure you saw that one superhero with the flaming skull. he just shut off his flames for awhile. i guess it must get hot if your head is on fire right?

Harley joke

Orthodox rabbi to Reform rabbi: "One of my congregants says his son wants a Harley for his bar mitzvah. What's a Harley?" Reform rabbi to Orthodox rabbi: "A Harley is a motorcycle. What's a bar mitzvah?"
