    Can anyone tell me the message this bit of art work is suppose to convey or the connection of fish and bicycle.
    * People on bikes are fishy people so stay away from them ?
    * Up here fish are so smart they can ride bikes just like people ?
    * Marine life are allowed to flaunt helmet laws in this area ?

    Cool post thanks for the share.

    You hot a good angle on that dbax! The most frustrating thing about the whole Swell festival is the positioning of some of the works.

    From the source 'The Phrase Finder' at http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/414150.html

    A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle

    Meaning

    A feminist slogan, suggesting that men are superfluous to women's needs.

    Origin

    This slogan is often attributed to Gloria Steinem. Other claims for origination point to Flo (Florynce) Kennedy, or to an anonymous author who painted the slogan on a wall at University of Wisconsin in 1969.

    Gloria Steinem had this to say in a letter she wrote to Time magazine in autumn 2000:

    "In your note on my new and happy marital partnership with David Bale, you credit me with the witticism 'A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.' In fact, Irina Dunn, a distinguished Australian educator, journalist and politician, coined the phrase back in 1970 when she was a student at the University of Sydney. She paraphrased the philosopher who said, 'Man needs God like fish needs a bicycle.' Dunn deserves credit for creating such a popular and durable spoof of the old idea that women need men more than vice versa."

    Irina Dunn later confirmed Steinem's version of events, in January 2002:

    "Yes, indeed, I am the one Gloria referred to. I was paraphrasing from a phrase I read in a philosophical text I was reading for my Honours year in English Literature and Language in 1970. It was 'A man needs God like a fish needs a bicycle'. My inspiration arose from being involved in the renascent women's movement at the time, and from being a bit if a smart-arse. I scribbled the phrase on the backs of two toilet doors, would you believe, one at Sydney University where I was a student, and the other at Soren's Wine Bar at Woolloomooloo, a seedy suburb in south Sydney. The doors, I have to add, were already favoured graffiti sites."

    Dunn's modesty is appropriate, as 'A needs a B like a C needs a D' was a well-established format in the USA many years before 1970. For example, this usage in the Connecticut newspaper The Hartford Courant, December, 1898:

    The place [Aragon, Spain] didn't need an American consul any more than a cow needs a bicycle; for it had no trade with America, and no American tourist ever dreamed of stopping there.

    I think the fish was on the way to the Gay Mardi Gras to join the "Pykes on Bykes".

    I was at Sydney University in the late sixties but that piece of grafitti didn't make it to the men's toilets.
