MERKA!

Actually, I am one of those staunchly (and I guess stupidly) opposed to going metric. I am not really interested in learning it.

I don't get it.

It's about them Mormons.

I didn't get it at first, either. I thought it was about the backdrop more than two guys in ties on bikes. Took me a while to figure it out.

How English of you (actually, not been there for a while, everyone might be a convert by now).  I like metric distance measures of a meter or below but everything else can sod off. :)

It's a reference to this or, if created prior to that, a similar incident. The events in Libya lend it new currency if the latter is true however.

Oh........
Mormons can be made fun of, and don't feel the need to flip out about it. I agree. I was expecting it to be making fun of Mormons, not complimenting them.

By the way, the church started buying ad space in the playbill of the musical.

Yes the thing is, as long as a work isn't intended to completely destroy what it's satirizing, the potential is always there that people might say "joking aside, I might be interested in looking into this LDS thing a bit more".

So it makes sense to place the ads in the one place almost every attendee will look. And then they see a sense of humor about things and that's never unattractive.

Can you divide things by 10?

Congratulations, you know metric.  Have 7 ounces of a quart of your diploma!

Ehhhh, why would there be a stationary camera on that spot at that time?  Seems staged.

Meh. I have a camera trained on my driveway due to some highly placed windows in my bedroom.
