    Congratulations Phillip! I'm in.

    Tony (@Luca917) has more restraint when it come to purchasing knives than anyone I know. :thumbsup:

    Why is it that I think Big Deal Bob is going to have a really funny post?

    I don't know if your humor is as infantile as mine, but I've been on the verge of tears listening to this Irish lad freak out. *Language Warning*

    Thank you for you generosity, your exceptional customer service, and your involvement. I'm in.

    I'm in! You're very generous so I'll try to make it worth your while with one of my favorite jokes.

    "In the 1900s an English town had fallen on really hard times. For decades its primary industry had been its textile mills, but now the mills were all closed and unemployment was at an all-time high.

    Desperate, the town's mayor looked frantically around for other industries to bring to his town. He found that there was a man in Germany who waslooking for someone to take over his thriving hunting dog breeding business. The man had made a fortune raising the animals and was not willing to unload it for a fraction of its value, so that he could retire.

    The mayor used his influence to have the mills converted to kennels and all of the dogs transported to his town. Employment skyrocketed and the town prospered. Everyone was happy, even though, sometimes--especially on the nights with a full moon--the animals got a little noisy, keeping some residents awake.

    But, even these unfortunate few learned to sigh and say, "The mills are alive with the hounds of Munich"."

    I'm in.
    I have a 3 o'clock doctor appointment today which lines up with the shark fest for today's line up of Fiddleback Forge Knives. I've come up with a plan though. At 2:58 I'm going to tell them I need to use the restroom and then proceed (pretend or maybe not) to take a 5 minute power dump!! I think this might work!! fingers crossed.

    UPDATE!!
    So I'm sitting in the waiting room staring at the wall clock thinking that 2:57 was going awfully slow. And then the worst, the nurse came out and called me in before 2:58. Well that changed my plan and as I'm walking back to the exam room figuring out how I'm going to pull this one off now?? Never have I ever pulled one of these stunts, but I pardoned myself in the middle of my blood pressure check to shark the knife of my choice and was successful. Three rechecks of my blood pressure later and it still high. o_O And I still have to use the restroom!

    I am in. :)

    "An elderly man in Louisiana had owned a large farm for several years.

    He had a large pond in the back. It was properly shaped for swimming, so he fixed it up nice with picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and some apple and peach trees.

    One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn't been there for a while, and look it over.

    He grabbed a five-gallon bucket to bring back some fruit.

    As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee.

    As he came closer, he saw it was a bunch of young women skinny-dipping in his pond.

    He made the women aware of his presence and they all went to the deep end.

    One of the women shouted to him, 'we're not coming out until you leave!'

    The old man frowned, 'I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the pond naked.'

    Holding the bucket up he said,
    'I'm here to feed the alligator...'

    Some old men can still think fast."

    My eye really tracked to this one first... It is "bizzaro"... Don't you know how that poor pooch is just "diggin it" having to wear 4 big mitts for shoes...

    I also could see the bottom cat picture MEME while I was looking at this one and I was thinking to myself... WTF is up here with a cat being at a head banger concert?... then I actually read it. :D

    I think it took me a solid minute of staring and laughing at the picture to convince my brain that it wasn't a cat.

    Having three different animal theme "meme photos" each on top of the other is why in my mind I assumed or thought it was a cat!

    I'm in.

    But I have nothing funny to add.

    Not worried though, I couldn't win a black eye in a bar fight.

    Thanks for all you do, have done, and will certainly continue to do!
