I wonder if there's a butcher knife demo between the lamb cuddling and the barbecue demo.

I'm not 100% sure my 2-year-old has made the connection yet, but I think the 4-year-old has.

I think sooner or later the "Idiot" will have an unfortunate accident. If turning his back on a locomotive doesn't bother him then there is no hope for him.

Just a few pages back is a "Leave Room For Jesus" pic which I find funny but according to your quote is in complete violation of the "rules" so until you have that post deleted as offensive, you can just sit down and be quiet.


Now, how about less drama and more funny pics?

Makes no sense.

One that a lot of people miss is:
Quote:
[h=2]Harrassment[/h] Harassment occurs when a member insults, attacks, and denigrates another member at any time. We have zero tolerance for taking an argument about a any topic to a personal level. For instance, the use of terms such as "idiot, moron, stupid" and other derogatory terms constitutes harassment. The idea is to make this a pleasant environment to discuss cycling, not a schoolyard, or name-calling and rock-throwing festival. Repeated critical and sharply negative posts toward a forum member can also constitute harassment. This applies to all content submitted by users including posts, avatars and signatures.

Personal attacks and inflammatory behavior will not be tolerated.

Respect the forum staff. We're not here to make life harder to anyone. Any decision taken by the administrators and moderators is final and must be respected.

Thank you!! Now that Gus knows the rules (which he agreed to when he signed up here) hopefully this thread won't continue to be a wreck. Thanks to all of the Foosters for self policing this place, we usually never have a problem here. Foo is the area of fun and stress free threads so this was really out of the norm.

Lets continue on, as Cbad askes, without drama.
