    Yeah man, right on!

    There are 1700 registered posters and 20 votes or less will usually get some poor smuck an award he doesn't necessarily embrace. They should make it so that everyone gets an award, that way no one will feel he's not part of the Pacer Digest click, and everyone will have his little feeling hurt.

    You earned your award the old fashioned way . . . by being lucky.

    However, if I hadn't . . . ah . . . hurt my back at the start of the season you would have been left hoping for a poor smuck award. Betcha a bucket of pig lard you don't repeat next year.

    Cruelty to Animals?

    I guess you haven't seen the whole series of pictures.

    (Putting on my Paul Harvey hat) And now the rest of the story . . .

    The guy pulls the trigger and water squirts into the kittens face. The next picture in the series shows the kitten is quite stunned . . . after all he had his hands . . . er . . . his paws up.

    The picture after that shows the kitten is a genetic freak as three inch razor sharp claws pop into view.

    The fourth picture shows the kitten with two bloody paws and the hand that once held a water pistole is now a bloody stump.

    Since I've described the whole series of pictures you can see why I must humbly decline your so gracious nomination.

    Earl: A remembrance

    Well, I'm not much for public speaking. I'm mostly a humble aw-shucks kind of guy. But now that Earl is no longer with us, I figgered one of needed to memorialize this fella who touched our lives so richly in such a brief period of time.

    I think I speak for us all when I say I remember Earl as a man who wasn't afraid to stand up for what was right, whether it was his country (for which he lost part of his foot, or possibly some limbs, I'm not sure which) or his pride (I remember the way he would say please when asking people to stop 'disrespecting' him). He was a man loved his grandkids, even if he did deceive them about what they would be doing when they visited his home ('hey kids, want to go out tonight?' 'well kids, when I said "going out", I meant staying in and watching me type messages on the internet. That's how I live my life. Let's please move on.').

    Earl also stood up for a young man who is also no longer with us. Maybe it was the way they both used multiple X's in their user name, or maybe it was something deeper and more spiritual, but something united Earl to Sassan in a way that inspired us all. Earl didn't mind being skewered by the corrupt powers that be ( :cough:Hicks:cough: ) to stand up for this special young man and his dignity, even in the face of being disrespected. We have all been humbled and enriched by this relationship, which is exactly what it was (a relationship) because Earl was not Sassan. at all. totally. let's please move on.

    Now, there has been a lot of talk, maybe too much talk - about Earl's insatiable passion for filthy space alien pornography, but really....this isn't the time or place to bring that up. Please. Let's move on....

    I'm sure all of us, his grandkids, Earl's old training buddies at Camp Pendleton, and his current military friends in the covert intellingence field, would rather have us remember Earl for his more positive qualities. Granted, he got confused easily and often, and he sometimes couldn't remember how to use proper grammAr, but the man cared.

    Yes, he cared. He was rude, stupid, ignorant, and pitiful. But he cared. And isn't that really the point? That he cared and he stood up for his beliefs. And that's the thing. And his strength. He cared, he stood up for things, and he had strength. or he was strong. Yeah, he cared, he stood up, and was strong....well, maybe it was more about how he stood up to Hicks. Yeah, yeah, that's the main thing. He stood up to Hicks. And Shade, too. He stood up to Hicks and Shade. Or maybe he stood up for Sassan.

    Well, its all those things. Plus a whole bunch more things, all rolled up into one. And that, my friends, is what Earl was to me.

    Sitting on this barstool talking like a damn fool
    Got the twelve oíclock news blues
    And Iíve given up hope on the afternoon soaps
    And a bottle of cold brew
    Is it any wonder Iím not crazy? is it any wonder Iím sane at all
    Well Iím so tired of losing- I got nothing to do and all day to do it
    I go out cruisiní but Iíve no place to go and all night to get there
    Is it any wonder Iím not a criminal?
    Is it any wonder Iím not in jail?
    Is it any wonder Iíve got

    Too much time on my hands, itís ticking away with my sanity
    Iíve got too much time on my hands, itís hard to believe such a calamity
    Iíve got too much time on my hands and itís ticking away from me
    Too much time on my hands, too much time on my hands
    Too much time on my hands

    Well, Iím a jet fuel genius - I can solve the worldís problems
    Without even trying
    I have dozens of friends and the fun never ends
    That is, as long as Iím buying
    Is it any wonder Iím not the president
    (heís not the president)
    Is it any wonder Iím null and void?
    Is it any wonder Iíve got

    Too much time on my hands, itís ticking away at my sanity
    Iíve got too much time on my hands, itís hard to believe such a calamity
    Iíve got too much time on my hands and itís ticking away from me
    Too much time on my hands, too much time on my hands
    Too much time on my hands

    This is why I predicted a year ago that VT could rival MagicRat for "Most Humerous". If he's not careful, I'll post his writeup on the football team in our 1990 yearbook.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    or

    You know, I think I may use this as my closing line when I'm explaining to someone new here why they're in trouble with the Admins.

    That, and it should be my default reason for editing or deleting a post.

    I'm just sad that Hicks banned him before he could reply. I mean, it was the right thing to do but I think he still had some goodies in him.

    Btw, now I finally get the whole awards thing. Man. I dunno which is funnier tho, the eulogy or this:
