The Bouncebackable Dictionary: ROARGASM.


-A strong emotion felt by a hardcore racing fan when he/she hears the sound of a race car/motorbike.


Hearing the F1 drivers trying to imitate the sound of their car engines is foreplay to a roargasm.


Quote of the Day: WRC Driver Mikko Hirvonen Bigs Up His Balls.


Image via WRC's Facebook page.

“Sisu means big balls! It’s like saying no matter how many times you fall down you will keep getting up.” – Mikko Hirvonen (pre-WRC Rally Finland 2011)


So…is it safe to assume that Finnish men have big balls, or at the very least, aspire to always have big balls?

Either way, thank you very much for that mental image, Mikko.

Photo of the Day: From Iceman to Darth Vader.


I can almost hear the Imperial March playing in the background...

Kimi Raikkonen went from Formula One to WRC, and now he’s also venturing into…NASCAR. Yes, that American racing series. He must have a case of Racing ADHD, no?

Anyway, notice how well Kimi is channeling Star Wars’ Darth Vader in his sleek, all-black racing gear–is that mere coincidence or is he somehow trying to convey a more badass image to his new American audience?

Either way, I’m liking this look (even if I’m not fully convinced of this dubious racing series move). Darth Kimi suits him well and he actually has that signature deep, robotic voice down pat already.

Now, if someone can just make him hold a red light saber…
