How About This For Irony?

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A former Fort Lauderdale city commissioner who helped create a program to combat bicycle theft had his own bike stolen while trying to help people involved in a vehicle crash.

Tim Smith said he witnessed the traffic accident as he was cycling to the beach on Monday. He said he left his bike on the sidewalk to rush to the cars involved. But after finding both drivers uninjured, he went to retrieve his bike and discovered it was gone.

To add insult to injury, Smith — as a commissioner — had successfully pushed for a citywide bike registration program to help police track stolen bikes. But when he contacted police to report his own stolen bike, he had to admit it was not registered.

This story is ironic on so many levels I don't even know where to begin. Is it the fact that the guy had his bike stolen or the fact he didn't even get it registered?

This is like Barney Frank trying to outlaw gay marriage in Congress and then busting out of the closet to the horror of good looking gay guys everywhere. Either way, sometimes you have to wonder if Yahoo news is making this sh*t up sometimes.
