When I pulled in the parking lot at New Life early yesterday morning, there was a scooter in my normal spot. No big deal; I tend to park all over the place anyway just to shake things up. I’m crazy like that. Living on the edge.

So I took the spot beside it, curious who was driving a scooter on April Fools Day to church.

When I finally left for the day at 5:45pm, it was still there. And I was the last one out of the building.

That alone was kinda’ odd, until I noticed the tramp-stamp tat on the bumper.

I literally stopped in my tracks and did a double take.

Talk about brand confusion.

So what’s the story? 21 words or less.

Biker lost his bike in divorce, but gained ex’s scooter. In order to customize it, placed a Harley sticker on back.

And that’s, the rest of the story. 🙂

They really wanted a Harley, but could only afford the Honda & thought the sticker would suffice.

    Which it sooo doesn’t.

    No, It doesn’t. That’s when you keep the Harley sticker in a place you see it everyday and set a goal, work hard, save for it and buy it! #goalsetting #dreaming #hardworkingleaders

Reformed 1%’er. Harley w/o the “Hell” but now heavy on the “Angels”. Honda= Harley of scooters. Branding. Burn rubber not soul.

It’s actually another brand altogether, but he covered it up with Honda and Harley, because the other brand’s logo was boring.

    hmm… on second thought, change “boring” to “ugly”

Hawk’s a Hell’s Angel that was into Jimmy da Shark about $40k. When the collectors came they said, “We start by cutting off your thumbs, or taking your bike, then we’ll be back for the rest in two weeks.”

Knowing that opposable thumbs were the only thing that separated man from ape, he opted for the latter.

Two weeks later, the boys came back. “Jimmy says he’s got something for you worse than pain if you can’t pay.”

Being a tough man who survived many brawls, he knew pain, and he knew Jimmy. This couldn’t be good, but he didn’t have the money. From the back of a van, the boys pull out this tiny Honda scooter and roll it over to him. “Jimmy says you drive this till he gets his money. Anything else, it’s your thumbs.”

Hawk caught the keys that one of the boys tossed him and looked to the front of the scooter. It was a knife in the gut. Jimmy had the boys put a Harley sticker on it.”

“Enjoy, scooter-boy!” The boys laughed as they left.

Hawk screamed to the sky, “Whyyyyyyyy!”

    Even though this far exceeded the word count, it’s hilarious. #score

    Has anyone ever told you that you should write books?…

    Yeah, I tried to fit it in, but it was to no avail. So I followed the example of my Father, who stretched the heavens, and stretched the count just a tad.

      Christopher Hopper · 3 Apr ’12 at 1:27 pm

      Whatever God says goes. As my father in law so eloquently said it once: 2 + 2 is not 4 – it’s whatever I say it is.

      So I say your post is 21 words.
