Serious Question gets Humorous Answer

In the world beyond the Bike Trails blogger Orin Kerr, over at The Volokh Conspiracy, asks for suggestions for subjects for future Congressional Hearings as Congress is threatening yet another one over something or other.

I couldn't resist. ;-D

How about finding out just how many members of the Congressional Bicycle Caucus have ever actually ridden a Bicycle even once in their life, and if not then why are they members of the Caucus in the 1st place?

A related question for those who HAVE put pedal to pavement: Can you change a Tire?

Within the hour the next comment was left:

I think they have Legislative Aides for that sort of thing. The time of a legislator is too valuable to waste.

Hee, hee. ;-D

I wonder whether you could get a non-partisan response to your question.

Also, how would one flip-flop on their answer to this?

"I did ride a bicycle once, however it is true that I never pedaled."
