Cool your jet's big guy, we're just kidding. Also, in case you haven't noticed, the dear boy really does start threads with titles like these. Shoot, the Fixie Forum sometimes bumps his old threads because they miss him so bad. And what else would you post in an homage thread? Anyway, lighten up, it's all in jest.

Don't piss me off Shatner. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.

Nah I'm j/k. We need tags that indicate that what I'm typing is intended to be read like the Dude from the Big Lebowski.

Euro was a cakewalk. Just goes to show haw thin-skinned the OCP crew really is.

When you think of it, Euro was your golem! lol The OCP's nightmare child come to life.

MERTON is the FOO forum come to life. He is FOO incarnate.

This thread was intended to give MERTON true kudos because he is a part of foo. I know we give him ***** all the time....why I started this thread to say "you belong" and whatnot.
