From Plastic Tub

bicycle n. 1. Two-wheeled human-powered transporter. 2. To rotate between two lovers.


With the bicycle came the need for the modern road, bloomers1 , and modern machine shops. Two of these three inventions "paved" the way for the tank. The bike and the tank famously did battle in Vietnam, where it was found that the bike and the tank were equals in war -- if there were no machine guns. As there are, in fact, many, many machine guns in Vietnam, the tank has been driven to oblivion.
