Default Man rides in floating lawn chair

It ain't exactly motorcycle related but you gotta admire this guy's lunacy.

Default Anybody check the donation box?

I recall a priest either in South or Central America doing this for charity recently and vanishing. Anybody recall that?

I do, it was a priest in Chile, SA. They had a photo of him departing on a giant collection of colorful balloons. The report said they found what was left of his balloons and his wicker chair floating just offshore in the Pacific Ocean. There was no sign of his body. I suppose he ascended to Heaven?

What do you think he could sell that chair for when he's done?

Perhaps a great new addition to the Seminar!
