Stuart Mackenzie: Well, it's a well known fact, Sonny Jim, that there's a secret society of the five wealthiest people in the world, known as The Pentavirate, who run everything in the world, including the newspapers, and meet tri-annually at a secret country mansion in Colorado, known as "The Meadows".
Tony Giardino: So who's in this Pentavirate?
Stuart Mackenzie: The Queen, BikeSnob NYC, The Vatican, The Gettys, The Style Man, The Rothschilds, *and* Colonel Sanders before he went teets up. Oh, I hated the Colonel with his wee *beady* eyes, and that smug look on his face. "Oh, you're gonna buy my chicken! Ohhhhh!"
Charlie Mackenzie: Dad, how can you hate "The Colonel"?
Stuart Mackenzie: Because he puts an addictive chemical in his chicken that makes ya crave it fortnightly, smartass!
Style Man's first entry to Bicycling according to this entertaining article started with:
"a reader wrote in to Bicycling magazine to ask if it was okay to wear cycling shoes without socks"Genuis, pure genius... Of course, there were some that didn't think as much, after all Bicycling is a magazine aimed mainly at road cyclists, a group that often takes themselves too seriously as a whole anyway. Every comedy show I've been to, there always has to be one guy in the crowd who gets upset when a comedian pokes fun of something he takes too seriously, regardless of how funny or true what is being said really is. I have to wonder why those sort of people go to see a comedian in the first place.
"Sure, no socks looks cool — if you've got the physique of an NFL tight-end and are sprinting ten-second 200-meter times. But as with everything else, style ain't about right or wrong, it's about suffering and conviction. After all, a nerd is just a freak without confidence."
But I digress, farewell Style Man, you've kept me entertained and kept me honest over the years as I read Bicycling, say hi to BikeSnob NYC for me when you see him at "The Meadows" this week, you will be missed!
