Ahhh, but not so fast, you religious fanatics you…scantily clad hipster cyclists have also decalred war, a secular war, and are now asserting themselves (let’s have three cheers for scantily clad hipster cyclists) by rezoning (via white spray paint) their old bike lanes (which, to use the Hasidic claim, had “posed a danger to their religiion”). There is no place for religious sensibilities in a public domain; it’s even in the constitution, something to do with that little thing called seperation of church and street. So remember this: when scantily clad hipster cyclists win we all win. Here.

Another couple of offerings from the Nanny state patrol reach MAD Magazine status (congratulations):
1–Police officers given 93-page full-colour guide on how to ride a bicycle, “which comes in two volumes and cost thousands of pounds to produce, gives advice on how to balance so officers do not fall off. The book, titled the ‘Police Cycle Training Doctrine’, also covers key skills such as how to brake, turn and avoid the kerb. Officers were told to eat and drink because they will get hungry and to wear padded shorts to protect their bottoms. It also warned officers not to arrest suspects while in the saddle, or, in their words, ‘engaged with the cycle’.” Here.
2–Beware: Scooby Doo (yes, our own Scooby Doo) now considered a grave threat to society. Here.
