Okay, so I freely admit I'm a healthy woman, but geez I'm not THAT freakin' fat. It doesn't help that in addition to a bulky, baggy long-sleeve jersey, I'm wearing a Camelbak and have ten pounds of crap in my rear pockets. I still like the pic he took last year a lot more because it was in a fast section where the racers' pics looked all fast and Euro, not like we're bunched up humping the granny. Only 'cos we are, this was taken at the crest of Wipeout Alley, which in any self-respecting 'cross race would be a runup.

Behold - my brand new 'nag getting the living tar beaten out of it.

Is 8x10 the biggest you can get? What if I wanted poster-size? Do you think they could help me?

ps: "bunched up humping the granny" is the best turn of phrase to come out of the midwest since Mark Twain said... uh, anything he said.
You look very "pro", LFR.Dale Brigham

Focused and powerful -- that's the look of a "pro." Congrats on a great race.

There is, of course, only one correct answer, if a women asks "does this (photo, skirt, pair of pants, thong, clown suit) make me look fat?" A resounding "NO" is the correct response. My wife has trained me, with both positive and negative reinforcement, that this is so. In your case, the answer is truthfully given. You don't look fat.

For the record, I think the all-time best quote on this board is your description of Tyler Hamilton's, uhh, propensity to lay his bike down on it's side. I paraphrase here, but you said something like "his head is on a swivel, like a squirrel on crack." I'm sure Tyler is a much better bike handler than I ever was or will be, but heck, it's still a great simile.

Does this skirt make my a$$ look fat?

No, the skirts fines, it's the fat on your a$$ that makes your a$$ look fat.

or

Baby, you know that's the way I like it. mmm hmm

Now I know, we're supposed to lie. (forehead slap)
The only correct answer to the "Do I look fat in this?"questionbill
Apr 17, 2003 8:20 AM
is to not have heard the question. Ever. Never, ever. You cannot say anything. You change the subject, no matter what. Stand your ground, do not be dissuaded. Ever. Never.
There is no right answer to this question -- it's a trick, pure and simple. It is a black hole that, after fifteen years of marriage, I refuse to fall into. Because if you say no, then you have to face the next question, which is, oh, so what DO I look fat in? Nothing, dear, you're not fat. Well, do I look better or worse than [when I was five pounds lighter, five pounds heavier, whatever, doesn't matter].
You can see where this goes. Straight to your own personal hell.
But the best put down is along the same lines...merckx56

If a woman, whom you may not care for, asks the question, "Do these pants make my butt look big?" The answer is, "NO, your BUTT makes your butt look big!"
I had a buddy in Philly ask a "do you want to dance?" and she said NO emphatically. He said, "I think you misunderstood me. I said your ass looks fat in those pants!" I laughed so hard I actually spotted!
Not bike related, but good stuff anyway!
