Northern Expressions

Northern Expressions: Election Edition

All I want to do it bicycle!

These Northern Expressions are usually picked out by me and designed by Mr. T. Today, Mr. T created his own for the crazy election time. If you didn’t know, Mr. T is a biker. We love family bike rides in the summertime and Queen just so happens to be my favorite band.

So, as the election cycle (pun intended) starts getting you down, Mr. T just wants you to remember:

I don’t want to be a candidate for Vietnam or Watergate. All I want to do is BICYCLE, BICYCLE, BICYCLE! – Freddie Mercury

Happy Friday, friends!

Love, Maggie

(and Mr. T – who adds: “next week, I’ll do a ‘fat-bottomed girls’ quote”*)

*Queen reference. Not just a random crude remark. 🙂

Scariest Things to Say to a Personal Finance Geek


  1. And I will be looking forward to singing “Another one bites the dust” when this election is all over. My head is hurting and my stomach is aching with the rhetoric and utter stupidity being portrayed across our great land.

  2. This is so funny! I just listened to “Don’t Stop Me Now.” Thanks Maggie and Mr. T. You made my day.

    Can’t wait till Nov 10 or 11 once the dust settles. Just hope there’s no hanging chads.

  4. TheRetirementManifesto

    Give me our 2 choices for POTUS, I just want “somebody to love”.

      Brilliant! This has become my favorite comment thread on any post!

    • Chris @ KeepThrifty

      Whenever I think of the candidates we have, I have to ask: Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide, No escape from reality.

  5. Donna

    Well, ok then… you’ll never hear either candidate say to the other, “You’re My Best Friend”
