George Sr. warns Michael about the Triathalon: "People lose all control of their bodily functions"
GOB alludes to destroying Michael's bicycle in awhat would seem a throw away gag.
Was a joke cut from this Ep? Allow me to hypothesize:
Michael wakes up in bed, sore all over. He reaches down and sees a brown liquid on his fingers?
Later in the episode Steve Holt will make an incontinence joke.
Was Michael supposed to have thought he lost control of his bowels during that joke? It would make sense and be much funnier when it's revealed to be oil, and his bicycle instead. It would also tie-in to the gag later when Steve Holt! offers him something for incontenence.
Ask yourself this, if you woke to find a brown liquid on your fingers, would your first guess be oil?
i think this is a reference to the Godfather where the guy wakes up to find his beloved horses head in bed...
