    It's a good thing you posted the link. If you had only quoted the ad without a link, I never would have believed you. Whtever this guy is on, he needs to get the dosage adjusted.

    Clearly it's code talk about some terrorist plot. They've had to abandon the more conventional means of communication, such as calling each other on the phone and agreeing on a time when they'll steal the helicopter so they can drop massive amounts of LSD into a public water supply.

    Somebody send a copy to the Dept. of Homeland Security.

    Or could it be the guy wants a pimpmobile and isn't allowed to drive?

    I have a strange feeling that you would create a nice bike with blue fur, but I would suggest you deliver it yourself for a chance to meet one of the Diegos... Something this interesting must somehow be tied to the Diego clan.

    OK - and we have to get some creative soul to think of a "Diego" first name for this guy in SD.

    Hey, what happened to dgregory57?

    He got tired of being called Gregory and trying to figure out who that Gregory guy was.

    +1, there's too much attention given to key words here to be anything but code

    Aliens! Definitely aliens posted that ad. You see aliens can't touch metal. If they do, their middle finger falls off which leads to a serious communication problem in their language. Since they print money in their spaceship, $4000 for a Huffy or Magne covered with fur is no problem.

    Oh, all right you savages! It was I, the ivory-tickling Diego, who placed the ad in Craig's List. (I hope that one day I'll be at the top of Craig's "list," don't you know!)

    Blue fur and I go waaayyyy back! I thought it would be so super to have a blue fur bike! Little did I know that Digital Gee would be the boy-toy who'd come to my rescue!

    I had a strange feeling there was an ivory tickling Diego somewhere...

    I can just imagine the lighting system, a candelabra...

    Gut feeling. Absolutely zero empirical evidence to back it up. But I'm only wrong about such things 70 or 80 percent of the time.
