+ 'its a big day if you like motorcycle gangs', craig ferguson informs, 'the biker show 'sons of anarchy' kicked off its fifth season tonight on cable. its rated tv-ma which means nudity. dont get too excited cause in basic cable 'ma' usually stands for 'man ass'. sons of anarchy was on earlier tonight and i was torn on what to watch because it conflicts with my other favorite show which stars another surly grizzled hombe, i am of course referring to nancy grace. she could kick your ass! she wears a leather jacket on tv, thats pretty bad ass. anyway, sons of anarchy is about a pack of hard nosed bikers who live outside the law- think lance armstrong but with less crime and drug deals. the best known of all biker gangs is, of course, the hells angels. they get a bad wrap sometimes, the hells angels, but being a member comes with perks: they get the leather jacket, the cool thing on it, the brotherhood of the road, they get ten percent off at bath and body works. when i was growing up there were three guys that i looked up to that made motorcycles cool. they were the quintisential american bike heroes. steve mcqueen was one, now thats a movie star! another bad ass: evil kenivel! now there you have your redneck biker hero. there's two tough guys, and the third is prince! he's so tough he can make doves cry!'
