Biker Christmas tree…in March

This ad appeared in the March, 2009 issue of Rider Magazine, and just arrived on newsstands. This raises questions:

1. Are bikers slow on the draw for the holidays, or the ultimate earlybirds?

2. Do bikers share a weird ceramic Christmas tree jones with Boston Terrier lovers and Cub fans?

3. If a biker could only have one, would it be this tree or this snowman?

Also–note to The Bradford Editions: Enough with the “It Lights Up!” stuff.

Cubs sleigh ride to Hell

This is from last year, but of course, it’s timeless. As with every annual Cubs ornament, lump of coal free with purchase. You’ll enter this season in the “win” column. You’ll finish “elsewhere.”

No more waiting, “next year” is here. Maybe this would work better.
