What the nation needs is a whole lot of chamois butter

David Byrne is a freakish fellow and a bike nerd who's not afraid to talk about his testicles.

"Only once in a rare while have I had numb nuts," reveals David Byrne at the end of his new book, Bicycle Diaries. The observation happens in the most boring chapter, an appendix about padded shorts and bike safety.

And it's true. If your nuts are numb, you're probably riding your bike wrong. Or else you've been teabagging a bit too much.

And if you were freaked out by Frank Zappa in 1963, check out Led Zeppelin in 1957.
