Three Line Tales — Motocross Confusion

“I need to get in more practice, Steve, if I’m going to have any chance of making it through the first round of elimination races at the motocross competition this weekend,” Butch said.

“Butch,” his best friend Steve said, “given the cycle you’re on and what you’re practicing, I think you’re confusing motocross, which is an off-road, dirt bike competition, with motorcycle stunt riding, which involves acrobatic stunts such as wheelies, stoppies, and burnouts on street-legal cycles.”

“Dammit, dude,” Butch said, “why didn’t you tell me that sooner before I wasted all this time practicing my street bike stunts?”

    Ha! Well, Butch can always sign up for a stunt riding competition after he fails at motorcross. 🙂
