Screaming bicycle

Posted by ESC on September 23, 2001

SCREAMING BICYCLE -- A stock market expert (Mr. didn't get his first name Kiplinger of Kiplinger's Personal Finance fame) on CNN today (Sept. 23, 2001) was talking about the great deals buyers can get in the long-term by buying into the America's vigorous economy when stocks are temporary down due to the Sept. 11 tragedy. (I like what one English-as-a-second-language woman called it - The Big Terrible.) He said, "It's a 'screaming bicycle.'"

I guess "screaming bicycle" means, "Get on before it's too late. This baby is moving fast." God Bless America.

Anyone ever heard the phrase "screaming bicycle" before?
