Could someone provide a proper translation of this, because I can't make any sense out of the bot-generated one.

Easy riddle at freak level but laborious. Say the 9 runners. Also the 4 lords below, I forgive the one on the right at all. I love the fliper pose of the 4th runner on the right, needless to say who it is.

    I asked a Spaniard. He said it's not easy as the language is heavy in slang, but it means:
    "Easy riddle for a freak, but will require some work. Name the 9 riders. Also name the 4 guys sitting below; I can accept not knowing the one at the right of the photo. I love the 'fliper' pose of the 4th rider to the right, who of course you know who he is."

    Gracias!

    I still don't know what a "fliper" pose is though.  :D

    That's our swear filter coming in. :-x
    It's supposed to read "'f*cker' pose".

    That's how it reads for me. I still don't know it means, though.  :P

    I'm still waiting for Drumbo to name all 13 people in the photo!

    Graham Watson is my contribution.

    I don't even know what this means. But I had to stare at it for awhile, as, at first, I thought it was a picture of a worm embedded in a head of broccoli.
    :slow  :lol

    One thing it means is that someone can't spell. :P
    "Its starts with us"? "It's starts with us"? Neither makes any sense whatever.

    The main message is that #deceuninck will start offsetting the team's carbon emissions to "become the world's first carbon-neutral cycling team".
    Only problem: #sunweb have done exactly that for at least two years already! :fp

    Hold on. WTF? Why is that even a hashtag others are using, too?  :S

    It isn't. The rest of the world can spell and uses #itstartswithus. ;)

    Au contraire. Look it up. :P  It circulates on Twitter. Others are using the misspelled hashtag as well.

    I don't understand how that became a thing. :slow

    It's the hashtag embedded within the original tweet itself (in blue). Two "S"s.  :fp

    Yep. *Random Twitterers* simply use the same hashtag as the team, trusting the team to, you know, have checked stuff like basic spelling. :-x

    And they have - now. Better late than never, I guess:

    Not to beat a dead hashtag with this, but...

    It goes back much further than that. It seems to be a commonly misspelled and, yet recycled, hashtag for various causes. Most odd.

    Well, you all know the famous Einstein quote: "Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former." ;)
