Well in 2008 they are in China.

But in 1984 they were in LA.

...really? Clue? (Potential spoiler below)

Give to the lion credit where it's due
And he may extend his Lion's Credit to you!
The men he sponsors, nine by nine,
race to the line,
on two wheels
powered by toes and heels,
that's on th'Elysian Fields.

[Someone please get it and save us all from more feline doggerel!]

Hey, Nick...search GIS again and see if you can find that specific picture again. I tried every variation of "Lyonnais", "Credit", "Bank", "Tour de France", "Lion" I could and never found that one pic you have. Hope you don't mind but I tagged another of the Credit Lyonnais lion pics I kept running across.

I searched Google on "tour de france" hoping for a pic of the peloton where I could interlard a Vespa. No such luck, but I found the lion float-mobile that was more or less compatible with my avatar flipped horizontally. When I first found it, it was on about page 12, a day or two later down to 17 or so, now it doesn't show in the 55 pages that it'll give you before petering out, although a Freddy Mercury album cover comes up at the very end. Go figure. 30 pages on "tour de france 2007" (I think that was the year of my pic) also doesn't show it in 30 pages. Enuff awreddy.

Your pic looks like the same float or nearly, down to the rear-view mirrors on the back paws. You should give tutorials on Vespa-masking in Photoshop!

Turns out that I still had the original Crédit Lyonnais lion floatmobile on my office computer and Googling its name brings it up in some completely different blog:

Some of us do. You have to find just the right pic!

Do you guys really need a hint for my tag?

Combine the nickname for a single University of Tennessee football player (or fan) plus a 1982 Disney sci-fi film, one of the first to feature computer animation, with a much more modern sequel in the works.

As in JRR Tolkien's novel, the "ring" was inscribed with text that translates to:

"One Ring to rule them all,
One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all,
and in the darkness bind them."

well you know, I was looking at that picture you sent me,

I kept think "man that face looks so familiar"


wasn't until I was trying to make you Quasimodo that I thought.

Yes that's where I know that chin.

The difference is that the swelling in my chin went down after a day or two, while Jay Leno's is there to stay. (For some reason that guy really annoys me.)
Uh, Mr. Leno? Yeah, some guy named "Messy" insisted on riding cupcake with you.

Pretty famous painting.

By one theory, the somewhat out of place, vertical hand positions of Mary, the angel Uriel and the infant Jesus towards the center of the painting serve a hidden purpose: they actually spell the initials of the artist using sign language of that era, since signing a painting with one's own signature was considered heretical at the time.

Bump with a hint.

The lead actress has the same first name as a Vespa-related Hepburn, and is just as cute, too.

Not sure if this is a forum we want to expose little Amelie to, with everything we . . . . uh . . . . do, here.

*EDIT* My sister used to LOVE watching this movie over, and over, and over, and over . . . Actually got to see the cafe she worked in when visiting Monmatre.

I'm thinking this might be strictly something familiar with kids on MySpace. They're not exactly Power Rangers . . . Rather, an over-emotional version of them.
