    Although exaggerating, its scary how true some of that is based on experiences!

    It is sad. I went to a small high school. I liked to hunt at the time. I had a 12 guage and 16 guage shotgun plus a 22 rifle in my truck at all times. This was in 1991. Wow how 16 years change things.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    I hate these email chain things. This one is exaggerated to the point of absurdity. I get the point it's trying to make, but sheesh. The FBI called over a fistfight? "Billy's mom has an affair with the psychologist"?! An elementary teacher put in jail because she hugged a student? Hilarious.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Whoah, did somebody have to wait in line at the airport an extra 20 minutes? I found this more annoying than anything. Call me Debbie Downer if you wish, but I've grown up in the "pampered hyper-sensitive" era. Most of those examples are supremely exaggerated.

    A list could just as easily be made shedding a negative light on the mindlessly trustful, ford truck driving, straw-chewing hillbilly simpletons of 77 and the sophisticated, scientifically aware elite of 07.

    Just my pov.

    I think exaggerated or not, these were pretty hilarious! Especially with all the evil and malevolence in the world today, the way the laws that govern our society have strengthened over the years, these aren't to far from the truth. Thanks for the laugh anyway Brian.
