Just when you think you’ve heard of every possible reason to make buttons—
This will be the 22nd year that Team Occisus Via will take part in their annual Bike Ride Across Georgia. The team’s name loosely translates to “roadkill” and their claim to fame is throwing Mardi Gras beads on the dead animals they pass on the road. According to team member and button customer Vernon Bowen,
“Most people on the ride find our antics fun. There are always a few who find it hideous. As long as we have fun… This will be our 22nd time doing this ride. That’s a lot of miles and a lot of beer.”
Vernon recently ordered a batch of buttons to pass out for this year’s ride featuring an unfortunate armadillo. It’s really true, folks— there’s a button for everything.
