Sure enough! I guess he could have sat on the plastic handle he was using to push it if he really wanted to, but he'd have to want to really badly. I don't mind the saddle on my Avenir that people have complained about but even with my iron butt...

I think it broke her brain. She was so distressed! A lot of kids are surprised or excited, but she was horrified. That's the first time I've gotten that kind of reaction!

"Here come dat boi!"

I heard this a few weeks ago as I was chugging up the pedestrian bridge here in Nashville. I was not yet familiar with the meme. I'm thinking It may have been followed by the usual next line, which I'll not repeat here for "family friendliness" reasons.

On a related note, The Unipiper has actually dressed as that character. I have not.

I've unicycled in my green morphsuit more times than I care to admit... It's just a full-body lycra get-up, making it perfect for cycling in!

I sadly don't have a frog's head as of yet though

Funny, I was just about to post the exact same comment!

Idlux's post about "Dat Boi" is also one I heard at about the same time he did. The kid even showed me a smartphone image of the "meme" he was talking about.

From a bicycle rider on the bike path, as he passed going the other way: "That's on my bucket list!"

Had a couple of really good ones yesterday. I joined a local bicycling group on a 21 mile ride. I rode my 36" and the ride "leader" makes a point to stay with the slowest person in the group. So him and I are cruising along the trail together. A family, mom, dad, and young son, all on bikes approach us. Right after the young son passes me, I hear his brakes squeak and him come to a stop. Then he said to his dad, "Daddy, what on Earth was he riding?!" It got a great laugh from both me and the bicyclist that was riding with me. The other one, on the same ride, is pretty unique. Wes(the bicyclist and ride leader) and I were taking a quick break at the top of a super steep uphill that we had just conquered. Up the hill comes a middle aged, obviously new to the sport, woman on a 3- wheeled recumbent trike. She stopped at the top of the hill to catch her breath. She did a quick double take after noticing my unicycle and then goes, "Hey, I've got your other wheel!" Wes and I both got a laugh from that. I shook her hand and told her that she won for comment of the day lol.

Yeah, I hear that one from time to time. One woman, though, instead of explaining it to a child, was carefully explaining it to her dog, who was straining at the leash, panting, his tongue hanging out, looking off in the other direction. He had absolutely no interest in my "you-knee-cycle."

I thought of a good response to those occasional times when hikers just "stare" at you, without saying a word. I was riding up a steep section of a local trail when I saw a group of about 10 hikers near the top of the hill, watching me as I made my way towards them. I expected some good comments as I approached them, but they didn't say a word, and just stared as I rode by. So just after passing them I said, "Yeah, I'd be speechless too!" That got a good laugh from them!

Then, on a beach ride a few days later a guy said, "you lost something bro!" So I pointed to my abs and said, "Yeah, about 30 pounds of fat. Thanks for noticing!"

Riding my G32 on the beach bike path, passed a middle-aged couple.
Lady: Hey, that's nice!
Man: If I had a handlebar I could do that too!

(My uni has a handle.) I laughed out loud at that one!

Passing a woman on a hiking trail she says: "Wow! You're doing everything in my life that I'm not."
