Today, I was riding my bike and swerved to avoid hitting a lizard. I ended up sliding into a bush and skinning myself, only to find my tires had still managed to cut the lizard to pieces. FML

poor u and poor lizzard

alright mate, this biker could have saved $100 by switching to geico, 15 minutes could save you *splat*

haha, made me laugh. (:

Well don't you just feel special? I bet when you die, the two people that show up to celebrate your funeral will talk about all the amazing accomplishments you've made in your life. Like how you corrected some guy's spelling on a FML post.

hahahahaa I have been waiting for someone to say that

the lizard was obviously gay and was tormented by the other lizards so he commited suicide. or ur jus retarded and can't ride a bike

dang that sucks man

Dammit... now how am i supposed to get geico?

it said he swerved and hit a tree to avoid hitting a LIZARD.

You idiot I had been talking to him for 14 minutes for my cheap insurance! ONE MORE YOU JERK.

You know he has cavemen buddy's right? They will find you, and will do their primitive 'rituals' to you.

at least you tried! besides I heard lizards can grow their tails and limbs back. not to sure about head tho

sorry wrong place I was commenting on my comment and it lagged

Okay. I definitely read that as *Wizard... You guys cleared that up for me though.

Geico lizard is a geko not a lizard. just sayin.

Lol this reminds me of that FML about the car swerving and hitting a tree but the other car hits the squirrel.

A gecko is a type of lizard...

atleast it can have fun I animal heaven with the frog ?

sorry I lagged >:(

Gieco can save you 15% if you call in the next .... oh shit where's Gieco?

Op was scared of PETA.

Gieco is a komodo dragon with a large penis.

Gecko is a type of lizard, dumbass. Just saying.

i don't understand why people made lane geico jokes which turned into a debate whether it was a lizard. it doesn't even matter lol. im more sorry for this lizard that got it's ass trampled than some made up lizard that caused people to cry over trolls

I've never understood why people will swerve to avoid hitting an animal. i get that the OP was only on a bicycle but people in cars die every year from swerving away from a squirrel and hitting a tree. How dumb are people.! I mean I don't WANT to hit a squirrel or a rabbit or even a dog but if it's dumb enough to cross the road then why should I give up my life or potentially put my life in danger to save an animal.

That's true, but I think it's sometimes just out of instinct to swerve to avoid whatever is in your path, even if you know not to.

If you aren't speeding and have enough warning then you can easily brake, unless it risks putting other human lives in danger. I'd brake and swerve to avoid hitting something as big as a dog.

those EvilLizards are everywhere in Florida who cares if one dies.

thats you third post and you still get negative votes

crazy... you're from irmo? I go to Clemson. first time that I've noticed someone from around here on fml.

yeahhh. bike > lizard.

LOL. atleast it wasn't a turtle and atleast you didnt swerve into a tree. =)

lol if u take out the name of the company u just said "the lizard is a geko not a lizard"

1- it's natural instinct to avoid hitting something or running into something that appears randomly 2. "I'd dumb enough" I'm sorry that we didn't teach animals to look both ways before crossing a road...it's natural for them to roam around anywhere unlike the complete opposite of driving a car....but some ppl have extreme reactions which is unacceptable

yea smooth move ex-lax!

agreed poor lizard.

Have you ever lived in Florida? It's not a 'poor lizard', don't worry. Those things are evil, and they're EVERYWHERE.

Yeah way to go Keith Stone

What about the bike? It was about to get it's insurance from the lizard. Now it's going to get ringworm from the cat it hit in the bush.

179, the lizards in Florida were here before all of us, but the ones that you say are "evil and everywhere" I suspect are the possibly non native(there is debate) Green Iguana (6 ft. long), Argentine Tegu (5 ft.), Nile Monitor Lizard(6-8 ft.) and various of the family Agamidae. They are invasive, but they didn't choose to be in Florida, we put them there. What we may call vicious is them doing all they know how to do: survive.

look I just commend OP for making such an effort!

At least you tried to save the poor lizard

A gecko is not a lizard. It is a completely different animal.

wow can you read ?

What? Where did it say gecko?

maybe 15 is originally blonde but died her hair 0.o

he definitely gets an A for effort

I'm sure she was referring to #8's gecko comment... but that guess is only based on common sense so I don't know for sure.

If you read 15's profile, it states that she is in fact a bag of chips. That is why the comment doesn't make sense. Chips don't always make sense. Or sometimes they come in twos.

15 was trying to respond to 8's comment. but still... 15, you fail.

Regardless of who 15 was replying to... I'm still trying to figure out when gecko's stopped being a lizard. Or at least understand the required IQ level needed to take a gecko an turn it into it's own animal as well as it's own species classification.

15 - Actually, you're wrong. Lizards and geckos are EXTREMELY similar. Their Kingdoms, Phlya, Classes, and Orders are all the same (Animalia, Chordata, Reptilia, and Squamata respectively). They are only different in Family, Genus, and Species. In fact, most lizard breeds have differing Families, Genuses, and Specieses from other lizards; the same goes for geckos.

species* I suck at pre-reading.

even thought they are the same in the domain, kingdom, phylum, class,and order the family genus and species are the deciding factors, they are actually significantly different, geckos brains are much more different, they are actually ganglia, not brain and even though I have, lizards and geckos cannot be compared, lizards are classified in the order while geckos are classified in the genus

where did it say gecko 15??

yes 15 we know , but did he say gecko?!

also 15 , you and this creature called the fml dumb ass are very similar

F the lizards life!!

The life that is now non-existent?

Ikr? it's like, Today I was waking across the street when some crazy person on a bike came and ran me over. FML

that lisards family is gonna come and kill you

next time just run over the animal.

maybe they should run over you, I would laugh.

i agree just hit the damn animal, clean off your tire, and continue riding..

-95 I'm glad you don't care what people think of you, from your couple of comments, you'd probably be depressed.

Yeah, run over the thing. Only for the left over guts to splatter all over your damn face. KARMA bitch.

95- I get how people would want to hit the damn thing, but your username has a victim of roadkill in it.

dude you have issues

don't see why people care it's a damn lizard, if you just hit it you and your bike would be fine but a tiny animal that can't even think wouldn't be

possum girl is an emo, attention whore fag who thinks people respect her for her lack of care for others opinions about her. well when she gets her 15 minutes of fame from recieving angry butt sex from vin deasel.

136- What are you talking about? That "tiny animal" is always looking to save you money. It's thinking alright.

I believe that a moment of silence is in order.

You killed the Geico gecko!

Don't worry, I'm sure he had insurance.

Now he can't save me money on my car insurance :/

The Most Interesting Man In The World doesn't need car insurance.

pieces? how many?

I find it moe interesting that he skinned himself.. It's not often you see someone with no skin

Atleast you tried.
