Funny CL ad and intro

Hey there. I am Hoggster. I thought this would be a good time to introduce myself (I've been lurking).

Check out this ad I just found here in fresno:

...so yeah, hello.

Hey Hoggster... Welcome to the land of Foo...


I'm not nearly manly enough for that bike...and I'd probably give him a panzy price for it.

I would have been a lot more interested if, rather than:

You should offer to meet him in person. He is probably a stick anyway. It is definitely a good way to get your post noticed though. I like the bike just because he took effort to add humor and shows he may care somewhat about it.

I say you go look at , offer him a panzy price, and when he refuses, you rip one of his arms off and beat him down with it.
