I drove a Mercury Retrograde for a couple years. Always pulled to the left.

I think the bike might have been part of an art installation. If we had the accompanying object description (the text usually posted next to the piece), it might give some hints as to the artist’s intentions, theme, why he/she chose this particular medium, etc.

Cajones is the plural of cajon, "big box" (caja=box) and is not related to cojones, which some say derives from a Latin word meaning leather sack and others from a Greek word meaning testicle.

Here is an example of an old version of what is spoken of. This is King Henry VIII. Notice the codpiece on his armour. How do you spell ridiculous. The Royals are not known for their IQ.

Yeah, I now know they are different things, but, to a freshman in high school with a little bit of knowledge and not understanding that other languages could have words that sound very similarly to an ango ear, a whole bunch of my classmates and I took a misheard word and spent altogether too much time talking about who had the largest drawers (or boxes if you will). Also looking up "to spank" and "monkey" so we could accuse each other of onanism.
