Eat Snow, Devil-man!

It's traditional in Europe for bicycle race bystanders to dress up in costumes. Didi (left) is the superstar in this field, with sponsors paying him good Euros to make roadside appearances in his trademark devil outfit.

In the recent Tour of California, this guy paid homage to Didi by dressing up as a “Liveclean” demon.

Mocking Lance Armstrong’s stated philosophy of living clean, the demon carried a pitch fork made of giant syringes.

And as payback, Lance Armstrong gave the devil a stiff-arm!

How is this not taking a joke? He pushed the demon away. I would say that this goes right in line of the costume. Would have it better that he embrace the demon?

I'd say he took the joke just fine, and turned it back on the jokester!

I'd say the fat bumblebee devil got his due. That's what can happen when you dress up like an idiot to try to get attention. What would really have been funny is if the devil had impaled himself with his own pitchfork.
