Default Damn, JB!

That must've been a peach of a work environment!



Who is going to play you, MB and the other principles in the miniseries?

have to find somebody who looks good in a viking helmet and bearskin. Ever tell you about the time i was dispatched down to the Guns & Ammo floor to procure a weapon with which to shoot Jesse Jackson, who was leading the janitor parade down Wilshire Blvd?

Viking helmet, bearskin and eats Spam...



No, I have not heard that story, but you really should consider writing a screenplay.



Lessee. Gary Sinise as you.



John Goodman as MB.



Jesse as himself.



Just don't have motorcycles or jets in it, 'cause it's common knowledge Hollyweird cannot make a good motorcycle or Air Force movie.

Edwards gets in a right wingnut line from time to time. The last one I remember was something about Ted Kennedy having to hit the tread mill . I e-mailed a complaint that, judging form the pics of him in the

mag (always taken from a distance) that he was something of a porker himself and I, for one, prefer my motojournalism without political commentary.

My comments were restricted to the editiors and not the staff.

Enthusiatic! I'll say. And never more so than when attempting to act as the self-appointed watchdog of the nations morals. They have this strange notion that the Bible is absolute truth and everyone is subject to its conflicting and mostly irrational commands.

Default Re: Plagiarism?

Even though it appears the general idea came from the Onion, the adaptation to motorcycle mags is still great wiriting. This was LOL good and, in my humble opinion, one of the best posts this year. Thank you, Gabe.

You go Gabe!

And let's not forget how lazy they can be using tenses. I ask you, how can moto journalists take such an exciting subject as motorcycling, and using passive tense, turn their stories into snoozefests?!

C'mon guys, wake up!
