I recently had the privilege of sitting down with our favourite yellow dad, Homer Simpson, and finding out his thoughts on MTB*
Mark: Hi Homer, thank you so much for taking the time to chat to MTB Shorts.
Homer: Oooh you’re wearing spandex hehe, that’s like plastic wrapping for people who hate wearing clothes. Mmmm…No clothes – the American Dream.
Mark: Firstly, tell us what do you think of our site MTB Shorts?
Homer: They have internet on computers now?! Damn French invent everything first!
Mark: *Rolls eyes* when did you begin cycling?
Homer: The day I discovered that the man who created the doughnut was the one who created the wheel – Krusty the Clown!
Mark: Krusty the Clown? WTF! Okay, moving on, who is your favourite cyclist of all time?
Homer: Hakim Bey.
Mark: Cyclist, Homer – not anarchist…
Homer: Oh, that Neil Armstrong guy who rode his bike on the moon. Can you imagine all the little aliens watching him do that?
Mark: Sigh. I think you meant Lance Armstrong and he rode his bike at the Tour de France. Okay, final question. What would be your advice for any other cyclists?
Homer: I’d tell them what I told my son Bart, “when you participate in sporting events, it’s not whether you win or lose: it’s how drunk you get.”
*This interview is entirely false, because we all know that Homer Simpson hates exercise
