    Al, That was great. I laughed my ass off and that takes a lot of laughter. BTW my possum's name is Brandy and she dances nightly at The Marsupial Club. Like most of my old girlfriends her signature...
  4. Define Abnormal

    Dear Alinwa, So you were expelled for "abnormal behavior". In the benchrest crowd that is the norm rather than the exception. Did you jump into the lion's cage at the zoo and taunt a male lion like a...

  9. Yes. They may be beady but they see all.

    Way to go Mike! That's pretty good shooting for some one with small beady eyes that are constantly shifting and a chest hair toupee made from recycled AstroTurf. Tim
