Girls with boyfriends are the kind I like. I'll steal his honey like I stole his bike.

He never saw that coming.

I thought we hated bicyclists?

He should have rode a fix-see.
See what I did there?

How is it he is looking at the camera with both eyes?

One of these "legally blind" scams. Only way to be sure is see if his wife is a complete toad.

Maybe he never actually had a bike....

Hey BuzzKill, nice to meet you, bet you're a blast at parties

Anyway, can't wait for the followups that a local bike shop donated a spiffy high-tech one to replace the "stolen" one

bet they had a crappy old bike that they didn't bother to lockup with a good lock and when it went missing took a couple of pics of someone elses decent one and then pleaded hardship of saving for a new one because the freedom means so much to him.
All in a sympathy ploy of getting a nice new one

Did he check the basement of the Alamo?

Just because he's blind doesn't mean he isn't an asshole. After all, he rides a bicycle around.

FTA : Alexandra Catherine, a floral designer, called 911 and asked cops to track down the crook and the missing bicycle.

I'd be very happy if the perp was found hanging from a light post with the bike locked to the post.

The fark are you talking about? Being legally blind isn't a scam. I would know, since according to the State of Louisiana--I know, I know--I am classified as legally blind.

Not this one, he doesn't run red lights and stop signs.
His dog is trained to make him cross streets properly.
He also will never hit anything, as long as he stops when the leash goes slack.

I am!!!
But, I tend to ignore people that I find to be boorish
So, you probably won't like me very much

I've been looking at this guy's picture and thinking that surely they can give up one of their iPhones or iPads and buy another damn bike themselves.

I once rode a bike while blind drunk.

Looking up the disorder he has, it's killing his optical nerve receptors.  So his eyes look perfectly normal, but, well, it'd be like a LCD screen where the pixels are worn out and dead - just a mostly black screen.

"They broke the chain and put a baby bike there," Charles Catherine said. "It was a tease. We don't know who would do such a thing?"

Somebody not evil enough to tease you by replacing it with this:
