American Chopper: "Whore on the Bikes"
Posted: Wednesday December 8th, 2004 by

Disclaimer: I know this one likely doesn't make sense to most of you. I don't expect most people to "get it" or "like it". But, it's a comic that I HAD to do for my own mental well being.


Anyone that truly knows me, knows I LOVE motorcycles. So any show on television that shows the fabrication of motorcycles is going to be pretty high on my "I watch it regularly" list. And, one of my favorite motorcycle fabrication shows is "American Chopper" on the Discovery Channel.

Orange County Choppers specializes in theme bikes, which isn't really my cup of tea; but they just so happen to make beautiful bikes in the process. Well, as the years have gone by, OCC has gotten bigger and bigger and bigger. Their success though, has accidentally lead to them being whored out, most likely by the producers of the show.

Why do I feel they've been whored out? Well, while I was watching another show on Discovery, a commercial came on advertising American Chopper: The Game. I was stunned into silence. I had to look it up on Gamespot, just to convince myself that my mind wasn't playing tricks on me. And, sure enough, there it was.

Apparently the premise is: you spend game time "fabricating" a bike that you can then drive in the game. You can also drive around some of the more popular bikes the Teutuls have produced.

So, there you have it. I hope it at least goes part of the way to explaining WHY I had to do the comic. If not... there will be a new strip tomorrow. Sorry for the inconvenience. Now, excuse me while I go sob into my pillow.
