Cartoon Tuesday

YouTube FaceOff: Rapping Bike Safety v Animal Traffic Engineers

Two YouTube videos have been making the rounds amongst Streetsblog readers in the past couple of days, and both have tickled the funny bone for different reasons. Given that things have been a little denser than usual here, heck even our recent polls required some study, I thought I'd break up the grind before going back discussing tomorrow's Metro Board Meeting.

So here are your choices. Tell me which of these videos got the strongest reaction.  Laughter.  Crying.  Whatever.

First comes proof that adorable cartoon animals don't make bad traffic planning seem better; they make it seem even more depressing and scary. Streetsblog NYC has more on this video from yesterday's installment of Cartoon Tuesday.

Second, Biking in L.A. and Commute By Bike discover a P.S.A. on bike safety that actually includes the line, "You Better Be Pimpin' with That Helmet on Tight."

Watch. Laugh. Vote.
