Time to go viral

… or is it virile?  (Got an email that our student worker would be out ’til next week with a virile infection — no, I don’t know the origin of the homophonia, ’cause she might have just called it in, but it was good for a laugh.)

I link to Tour de Fat, as in Fat Tire Beer, on Facebook and they bring all their tour stuff to MAJOR CITIES and they just had a huge “bike parade” in Fort Collins.    How many viral requests would it take to get ’em to swing down to these parts?

  1. The Fat Tire thing started in Ft Collins because New Belgium is headquartered there.

    Dictionary.com tells me virus comes from a Greek word for poison by way of Latin, while virile comes from the Latin word for “manly.” Ah well.

    • Bikejournal.com had a bit of a gathering in Fort Collins with Fat Tire Giveaways, so I’m familiar with that (and their nifty bike-commute video. They *do* take their entourage on the road – I think they should include more than the Major Metro places and let themselves be embraced by the ‘heartland’ -or cornland… or perhaps it’s the quadland or the lungland 😉 (Why aren’t there metaphors about lungs? “He is the lungs of our organization!” Is it their plurality that means the metaphor fails to resonate?)
