The group should be created by now. I’m a little worried, I should have gotten
it a long time ago… I’m supposed to get all groups (over 12000 now!) and
I’m usually among the first. Oh, well.

Go for the Eco-Earth response. “I can’t believe you are wasting those valuable
Mother Earth resources on a second wheel when one is good enough for any man!”

“Are you white with black stripes or black with white stripes?”
(Sorry, couldn’t resist!)
“Only when I want to be.” “Only on Thursdays.” “No, but its my day off.” “Isn’t
everybody?” “Put a little birdhouse in your soul.” “No, I’m a mono-cyclic
population entertainment specialist.” “Clown? Where?” (Jump off uni and look
around worried) “No, I don’t do politics.” “You mean the paint still shows?” “I
may look foolish, but you’re stupid, and at least I can dismount.” “Are you an
astronaut?” “No. I’m more into leather, really.” “No, I don’t do politics.” (I
liked that one) “At least I’m not a MIME!!!”

Reminds me of something that happened a while ago:
If anybody on a bike ever challanges you to ‘chicken,’ accept. There is no way
a bicycle will out-manuveur a unicycle, especially if the bike’s piloted by a
kid stupid enough to think he can turn tighter than a unicycle, because he’s
got handlebars to steer with.
Anybody want to sponser an International Scrambled .Sig day?
