    Re: Wd-40

    That's one of the reasons (hot babes, endless entertainment options, etc) we live in SoCal, huh Vic?

    But y'all are welcome to come on out and party!

    I've kept the hair-do as best I could. The costume has gotten tough to fit into these last few years but it certainly clears the line out for me at the grocery store.

    Re: back back back

    No problem. I sometimes blur together in my mind too.

    I've been running low on regular funny and the mods keep censoring my best posts so I put all the good stuff over in the accordion and banjo...

    Yeah, I am with OS. I think I have you, Astro, and at least one other guy blurred together in my mind. I guess I just thought that Astro wasn't as funny as usual for the last few months. Oh well....

    It's funny, I thought you'd still been posting all this time. I guess there are some other guys who look a bit like you and confuse me.

    Anyway, welcome back.

    That is not the point, and I find myself in agreement. Personally, I did not think I would win, but I would hope the winning results were good. But the humor was crude and not well thought out, nor...

    Hobo, I think you're not alone at all in your reaction. I've been hesitant to critique too much, as I don't want to be labeled a "sore loser", which I'm not, but I will say that when my husband...

    Sorry, I don't think "Lick My Love Pump" used in a description. Or, "PluckN A" as a suggested name are appropriate, let alone winners. It is has nothing to do with a sense of humor. Suggesting that...

    I have no problem with the winning entry. It is clever and perfectly rather nice -- but, not great. Congratulations to the winner and certainly enjoy your awesome mandolin for many years to come!

    And the chains succeeded because folks could save a few cents over the family business and didn't think about the service until it was too late. 'The best price isn't always the best deal.'
