Thought this was pretty funny…

In sports news today, the lighting fast tri-bike known as the Flying Pink Flamingo was found dead of an apparent overdose in a suite at a trendy Hollywood Hotel last night.

The Flying Pink Flamingo made a name for itself by turning in a blazing fast bike split at Ironman Coeur d’ Alene in June of this year.

After that impressive performance, the bike came to the attention of national media and even had a racy photo display on the popular website – Elite Bicycles.  Despite an upcoming race in Kona, Hawaii, The Flamingo began staying out late and was frequently seen at bars with a variety of companions by it’s side.  The list was a virtual who’s who of the sports and entertainment world ranging from Chrissie Wellington’s Cannondale to Paris Hilton’s Huffy’s (a bike of questionable moral character).

Authorities were called to the hotel room around 3:30 a.m. this morning after other guests complained of non-stop salsa music and sounds that could only be described as “disturbing”.

Upon entering the room, Police found the Flamingo unconscious in the bathroom surrounded by empty bottles of chain lubricant and co2 cartridges.

Attempts to revive were unsuccessful and the Flamingo was pronounced deceased at 3:35 a.m.
The bikes owner – Bill Beyer was not immediately available for comment.
