    Mayor Crushes Mercedes In Bike Lane

    With an armored vehicle. I don't think many of our wishy-washy US mayors would be caught dead defending anything bicycle related let alone crushing an expensive luxury car with an armored vehicle but this was very inspiring to me. Finally: a legitimate use for super-expensive tax-payer financed military equipment.

    It was completely staged, but it's still hilarious.
    Gotta get up to get down.

    Actually Chicago's former Mayor Daley was a huge bike advocate, but also party to many other questionable practices unfortunately.
