Politically correct or not, this is funny. Don't care who ya are!!

One day last fall, I was riding my bicycle in the country as I always did. There was this particular hill that led to a creek bottom. On the way down I reached speeds in excess of twenty five miles an hour.
I usually stopped peddling and leaned over the handlebars about halfway down. I did this because I actually picked up speed when I did that, and also to take a break and rest while coasting because of the upgrade, which was just as steep, only uphill.
Of course I had on my cycling gear which included tight pants.
Now, on the way down this day I was passed by two guys in a pickup truck.
Rednecks, I suppose, because they probably just were.
As the truck passed me I was bent over the handlebars coasting, and the guy on the passenger side of the truck gave me a wolf whistle.
I thought it was silly until I got about halfway up the hill.
Then it hit me, and I said to myself,
“That was about the gayest thing I have ever heard.”
I started laughing and wondered if the whistler even thought of that. He probably just thought he was being cute, or funny.
Well he was funny alright and I laughed about it all the way home.

But while we are on the subject, I have a question or two.
Please do not take this as bashing anyone, because believe me, I don’t care. If you can’t find humor in this piece, drop me a nasty note, all comments are invited.

Now what is up with this “Rub-A-Dub-Dub Three Men in a Tub?”
That sounds a little funny to me. I hope they all got clean.
Of course, we have just got to love Disney’s two oh so polite chipmunks, Chip and Dale.
Political correctness even reached Broadway.
Remember it used to be, “I feel pretty, oh so pretty, I feel pretty and witty and gay.”
Gone forever, replaced with, “Pretty and witty and bright.”
Thank goodness they haven’t yet made them change the words to “Deck the Halls.”
Because you know it says, “Don we now our gay apparel.”
That didn’t used to mean a thing to me, but now I have visions of someone dressing in drag to go to a Christmas party.

So with that said I hope I made you smile. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a goodnight.

Well written. I enjoyed the read. You have pointed out the metamorphosis of a connotation. When a civilization dies, so does its language. Try to find the Latin words for car battery, Computer Programmer, Keyboard etc. Alas, the converse is also true, when a language dies, so does the civilization. You see, once something stop growing, it starts dying. Hence, those who kill words, are killing a civilization. We need more words, not less. We need more connotations of words once considered offensive. It’s not the words, but the feeling behind words that really count. If they are offered in hatred, most decent people recognize that the offer is an idiot. If they are offered in humor, then it's quite acceptable to laugh at the stupidity of the past.

Made me chuckle, Walt. As a devoted cyclist I've seen MANY guys in spandex.... yes - some of them I had rather not, but it comes with the sport.
I like your extended thought on things here and in case you need distraction from too many 'admiring' drive bys: Peddle with an I-pot. Your chance of hearing the sceeching noise before impact greatly decreases, but at least you won't get annoyed by anyone in a pick up truck whisteling over your behind... ;-)
