You’ve probably heard the phrase, “A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.” Personally, I find it offensive. I believe we all need someone and to assume that all of the people we don’t need happen to belong to the same sex is, well, sexist.
The women who would make this generalization were perhaps victims of a spoiled relationship at one time or another. To quote another phrase, “Hell hath no fury as a woman scorned.”
The image of a fish on a bicycle is ludicrous and I doubt that many people have actually seen such a thing. The other day, however, Bob was transporting barracuda while riding a bicycle and found it to be serious business.
He caught his thumb on the teeth of one of the fish, and immediately began to bleed profusely. I later heard him telling some of our guests that he was “bit by a barracuda on a bicycle.”
