Because that's normal...

No lie. This morning I saw a bicycle commuter with a pitchfork across his handle bars. And not the "I'm a sexy devil" Halloween costume kind. A real farmer-endorsed pitchfork. As in, three very sharp metal spears at the end. And he was transporting the pitch fork for what? Feeding the cows in downtown Madison?

I know this is Wisconsin and all, but this was downtown Madison. Why do you need a pitchfork ON YOUR BICYCLE? I guess they left that out of the bicycle safety manual. Be advised, transporting sharp metal objects that could pierce through your vital organs may be hazardous to your health.

Let this be a lesson to you all. Next time you need to transport your pitchfork, please, fire up the tractor or something.
