    That's a backronym. In any case, look for the 'squid purity test', which has been online since at least the mid-90s. It has good examples of gear and behavior of the common squidus maximus.

    Of course, HST's "sausage creature" is required reading for the genre.

    I had look again to notice the glasses. My attention was drawn to what resembles a chubby penis on his face.

    Day Three to the Dragon and Hwy. 129: The Harley’s Lost Appeal



    excerpt


    "...

    And it was here, of all places, that the Harley lost its appeal to me. I’m not sure if it was the overpriced Harley store and the combination of sticker/tattoo/shirt messages I read there, or the fact that every bike off the road was a Harley. After seeing Any Given Sunday, and what can be accomplished when rider and bike are sufficient to handle each other and the terrain, the overpriced, overblown, overweight Harley begged the question: why?
    It was then I realized I was meant to be on a café racer, with an electric starter, high pipes, a lightweight frame, and enough horsepower to get me where I want to go without waking up the neighborhood to do it. We’ve found the Mississippi corn field version of the Dragon’s tail, and as soon as my rebuild with Thompson Customs and Racing is finished, you’ll find me there. ......"
