YSaC, Vol. 813: Bicycle cabinets are coming your way!

!!!!!Curio cabinet!!!!! – $30


Nice little cabinet aprox. 6 1/2 feet tall, has glass shelves not pictured, Please email Me with your # and I’ll get back to You. Thanks

Now at first glance, it may seem that this curio cabinet, while perfectly nice, may not necessarily warrant five exclamation points on BOTH sides of the title. Three, tops. But wait, look closer…

It’s full of BICYCLES! How awesome is that! !!!!!Bicycles, you hear me? BICYCLES!!!!!

Actually, now that I think of it, it’s not really all that awesome. I’ll give you 5 bucks and a lion painting.

Thanks for the link, Amy!

    It must be bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside to fit that many bicycles.

    OMG, it’s a Tardis! $30 is a steal!

      But it’s a glass-paneled TARDIS. Everyone could see that it’s not just an innocent curio cabinet, and then you’ll get everyone asking you questions and wanting a tour and asking if you can take them back to the morning of that time in grade school gym where they were pantsed and they weren’t wearing any underwear so they can put on some skivvies. You’ll never get a moment’s peace. Can you imagine if that well-concealed police call box was instead a transparent phone booth? The Doctor would never have been able to save the world from Cybermen and Daleks, to say nothing of never having any privacy with his hot assistant-du-season.

      Are you sure it’s a Tardis? I was thinking it’s just the Clown Car of the Curio Cabinet World. You can’t even see it because there are all of the bikes in there, but there’s an ottum, a French Pervential dinning set, a red table for sale that you can take for free (and speaking of free, there’s a misjay in there that needs to be let out), a couch with both auntie stains AND a possible snake, an armwaihre, some hi-dusting, a toy truck with a few bees in it, somebody’s dead grandma’s nylon stockings, and a winter bagel … and a bunch more, too many to list.

      But misspelled “approx.” and apparently believes “me” and “you” are proper nouns. Or gods. Given these balancing characteristics, it’s a good bet that Sparky probably typed “your” and thought to Him/Herself, “That’s probably not spelled right. Oh well. Moving on…”

          I’m sorry, I shall rein in my cynicism for this moment. I will instead imagine Sparky opened up m-w.com (or at least The Oatmeal*) in another tab and looked up the proper form of the word to use before committing it to photons.

        I pictured a Sparky who somehow knows the difference between your and you’re, is extremely proud of this fact, and therefore thinks that he/she has mastered the nuances of the written word.

      It’s the Curio Cabinet of Dr. Caligari! Oh, wait.No

      Yep, it is.

      Miffy vs the Curio Cab’net of Dr. Caligari
      by The Royal Gourdsmen

      After the turn of a craigslist’s page
      In Sparky’s mind it was all the rage
      Then came a sound and Sparky’s voice did curl
      Like not.a.lion or a screamin’ girl

      In the garage, a cab’net insane
      Caligari’s Curio was its name
      Sparky threw stuff and all of it bad
      Sucked up by the Curio on the craigslist ad

      {Refrain}
      Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
      The Bloody Curio swallowed up the store
      Eighty bikes died tryin’ to end that squee
      Of the Curio Cab’net of Caligari

      In the nick of time, our Miffy arose
      A funny-looking dog with a big black nose
      Heaved a pumpkin at it for to seek revenge
      But the cab’net ate it – “Curses, foiled again!”

      {Refrain}

      Now Miffy had sworn that she’d stop that crap
      So she asked llamanun* for a way to whap
      She challenged Curio to a real snarkfest
      Curio was laughing, I’m a somnambulist

      Now the Curio was in a fix
      He’d tried nightmares, but he’d run out of Trix
      Miffy threw a rabbit and then a Misjay
      And Caligari’s Curio was out of the way.

      {Refrain Twice}

    Cabinet

    What good is it sitting alone in my room?
    Come see the bike display.
    Wife has cabinet for curios,
    Come buy the cabinet.

    Put down the maple,
    The oak and bamboo.

    No, Sparky, don’t bother actually emptying the curio cabinet or placing it somewhere that isn’t full of debris. Why would I want to see what it would actually look like if you hadn’t taken the shelves out of it to make a bike locker? That’s just silly.
