begley_biking“Promoting sustainability through biking has really backfired on me. I’m almost 60, my knees are shot, and my sense of balance is not like it used to be. Unfortunately, every (beep-ing) person out there expects me to bike around — rain or shine. I can’t even drive around in a (beep-ing) electric car without some kid getting a frown on his or her face. I usually drive home and get out the (beep-ing) bike and ride by them again just to make sure I haven’t crushed their (beep-ing) green image of me. Al Gore has it (beep-ing) made compared to the (beep-ing) expectations I’ve got to live up to.”

Ed Begley Jr. in a recent interview discussing the hardships of being a green role model.

It’s worth noting that today is April 1st.

    Too bad it is just an April Fool’s joke.

    A lot of narcissistic bike fans need to hear it as it resembles reality for a lot of people. Just because their situations work out to let them substitute biking for other forms of transportation doesn’t mean that it will work for others.
