Is Jon a roadie?

I think he is. He's turning to the light side.

Argh! There are tooooo many choices!

Perhaps it was the picture of him doing the wheelie <eeekkkk> with the new roadbike ... and not dressed out in ... <shall I say it> full lycra.

He is a quandary. An enigma.

Is his name even ... Jon?

Where actually am I anyway?

Dang, I like how that works. I win, and you get the prize. Imagine if Bob Barker won the prizes on TPIR. He'd be swimming in luggage sets and cheap cars.

I'm so not tellin' you what it stands for now.

You're going to be in the dark. Wondering will plague your mind for eternity!

Hmm I wonder if I told Siu my full name. I probably did. Crap. Oh yea, I did. Nevermind.

I'm just sayin'. It'd be funny if more contests were like that. Being the lottery commissioner would suddenly be a very desirable position.
