"Once you know how to ride a unicycle, you are the life of every party, forever.
All you have to do is mention that you arrived on a unicycle, and the mystique of these Cycle Force Group one-wheelers will do the rest. Potential mates will admire your balance and poise. Rivals will seethe with humiliation, cowed by your superior courage."
Just advertising blurb, or is there really any truth to that?
You should pay attention to the fine print at the bottom of that page: “Product narratives are for entertainment purposes and frequently employ literary point of view; the narratives do not express Woot’s editorial opinion.”
I’ve gotten some good stuff from that site, and also some that just seemed like a good idea at the time. But it’s usually entertaining, and I’m glad that they’re paying writers to be creative like that.
My favorite part of that blurb: “Is there even a Tour de France for unicycles? Who knows? If anybody asks, just tell them whatever you want. You’re a unicyclist. You make your own reality now.”
Someone in the Woot discussion forum actually did mention Ride the Lobster, as a matter of fact. The Woot regulars can be a tough bunch and I thought they might really go off on this offer, but most were surprisingly positive.
So there’s who knows, maybe a couple hundred potential new unicycling buddies out there now.
