Mixed metaphors: Where have all the good bicycles gone?

Time to mix a bunch of metaphors, folks:

“A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.”

— Irina Dunn (popularized by Gloria Steinem)

“Propaganda doesn’t succeed because it is manipulative, it works because people WANT it, NEED it, it gives their life a direction and meaning and guards against change.”

— The Last Psychiatrist (Sept. 25, 2013)

In terms of fish and bicycles, post-postmodern feminism is receiving today exactly the type of men it deserves.  The next time someone asks, “Where have all the good men gone?” the correct response is:  You flooded all the bike paths and forced them to seek higher ground.

I know, I know: “They should man up, get good jobs, and quit playing video games and watching porn!”

Duh, at what point in cultural history did we start getting such awesome porn?  Hold on, I know this one, let me look up when Ms. Steinem first started repeating that fishy sentence.

Re-translation:

Irina Dunn:  “We don’t need you losers so haha!”

Whew, sweet, I’m taking a long break then.

The bikes aren’t stupid.  You want to have the cake and eat it, too?  Everyone knows this means we must require someone to pay for the cake without having or eating it.  You know, like indentured servitude or something.  There will be no fish on bikes because the bikes will go on strike.
