The Tale of The Little Spandex Wearers

This is a story told by some of the greatest Americans who ever lived.

George Washington = GW

Thomas Jefferson = TJ

Theodore Roosevelt = TR

Abraham Lincoln = AL

GW: Yawwwwwwwwwwwwwnnnnnnnnnnnnn

AL: You alright there George?

GW: Yes, just a bit tired Abe. It’s 8 am after all, and I got a terrible night’s sleep.

TJ: I wonder why……

TR: Odd, I slept like a baby.


TR: It’s not my fault I snore.

GW: Boys, boys settle down.

AL: Wait a second, do you see that?

GW, TJ, TR: What?

AL: I think…I think there are some cyclists coming our way through the Black Hills National Park.

TR: Surely, there would be no one stupid enough to try to climb up this way. That is nearly, mmmmm, nearly….how high up are we?

GW: 5000 feet.

TR: 5000 feet? Are you kidding me?

TJ: Can’t you hear the man? I know I’m between you two, but he’s right here. You really need to get your hearing checked.

TR: And how am I supposed to do that? I suppose I will just ask someone to sculpt some legs for me so I can walk down to the local hospital, huh? Really good idea Jeffy.

AL: Shut up you two. They are coming closer.

GW: NOOOOOOOOOO, why would they be biking up that 2 mile hill. We really aren’t that big of a deal. Why does everyone always want to see us?

AL: Now, George, you of all people should know that because of us and the actions we made directly affect these people’s lives. We kind of are a big deal, for some people.

TJ: It should be every person.

AL: Yes, yes, yes Thomas. I know, but that is what is beautiful about America, people have the freedom to believe in whatever they want here.

TJ: Whatever…..

GW: O my, they arrived already! How are they so quick? Look at all those little tight shirt, spandexed people and their bicycles.

TR: I see some pretty good mustaches too. 

TJ: Quickly, get in picture position.

TR: You are so stupid. We are always ready for pictures. WE CAN’T MOVE.

GW: Shut up and smile you two.

(1/2 an hour passes by)

AL: That was quick. Where are they going now, George?

GW: It looks like…..through the Mt. Rushmore National Park.

TJ: Naturally…who wouldn’t want to see our backwoods?

GW: And now they passed the sculpture of Wounded Kneee.

TR: O, I can’t wait til his sculpture is finished! Finaly, we will have a neighbor!

GW: Oof, more hills. Not as bad before, but still, I would not want to be them.

AL: I can see them leaving South Dakota now! I will miss them. They seemed like such nice and honest kids, and I can appreciate that.

GW: Very funny, Abe.

TR: And now they are getting food! What kind people there are in Newcastle, WY.

TJ: Pamido, Hopps, Pizza Hut, and Taco John all donated food, maybe I was wrong about the people in America.

AL: That’s more like it, Thomas. Wow, it’s already bedtime.

GW: Good luck little spandex wearers! Good night!

    Very creative!! What a great way to commemorate the Illini 4000 visit with four of our nation’s greatest leaders at Mount Rushmore. They would be proud of you!

    So, question is, did you stop at the Quizno’s in Custer that I apparently always talk about?
