Lance Armstrong Would Rather You Not Think Outside The Box

Professional bicyclist and cancer survivor Lance Armstrong thinks it’s a pretty B.F.D. that Outside magazine Photoshopped a t-shirt reading “38. BFD.” onto him for their cover photo. For those not yet aware, “BFD” stands for “Big Fucking Deal.” Or possibly “Bipedal Foxtrotting Disaster.” The “38″ refers to Armstrong’s age.

Armstrong called the photo manipulation “lame bullshit” — which is totally ableist, Lance — via Twitter:

Personally, we’d be more concerned with being juxtaposed alongside the words “MAJOR SHRINKAGE,” but to each his own.

The lowdown horrible no-good totally weaksauce cover appears after the jump.
