6 Angelina Jolie and the Colnagos

Whats the connection, you ask?

Here's something I picked up - An article in Pez Cycling by Charles Manantan, dated Dec 23, 2003. Mr. Manantan was doing a side to side comparison of the Colnago C40 with the C50 series, and somehow he couldn't make up his mind about which one was better. You can read the original article here.

Anyway, so he finished his assessment and finally wrote in the end :

"So all in all the C50 is a little nicer than the C40. It’s not hugely better, but the performance boost is noticeable and, with the new tubes, head and stays, it warrants a new number. That seems like light praise for the C50 only because the C40 is so sweet! It’s like determining whether or not 20 nights would be better than 18 with an enamored Angelina Jolie when just one is more than most of us deserve."

Whoaa whoaa.... hold it! Where did nights with Angelina Jolie pop out from? We were comparing bikes a moment ago, weren't we?

Wow.... if Brad Pitt were to read this now, I guess he'd knock your cycling socks right out, Mr. Manantan. Forget about 18 nights!

    Interesting... he also writes "enamored" Angelina Jolie, as if she was really attracted by him!

    "most of us"... is this a team effort now?

    Deplorable! Surely a celebrity actress can be treated better...

  4. I thought the author made an interesting but weird metaphorical connection between nights spent with Jolie and riding a bicycle.

  5. I could see the connection, but in the end I don't know if I could handle multiple nights A.J. (beeb there done that) - The colnago's win hands down.
