Since I'm new on here and don't know most of you, I'm going to ask "Who is the best story teller in the bunch"?

If you don't know, how about making this a contest? Winner gets bragging right!!!

I can stack the crap pretty deep, but it's really crap I'm stacking...cow crap that is. I'll have to think on this, as we have a few good yarn spreaders here.

I convinced my Earth Science teacher that we were going to loose 20 pounds of gravity. LOL! Not to mention everybody else who believed me. :bigrofl:

Oh, my... Just out of curiosity, where did they get their teaching degree?

Ryan thinks he may want to be a science teacher and I want to make sure that isn't a school he applies to...

Storytellers? in this bunch? Not a word is used out of place here. That being said I best go unload that load of frozen postholes I brought home before they melt and I have nothing but a puddle.

I ordered a whole truckload of those post holes months ago. They have never arrived! I ordered mine "freeze dried" so not to have the possible mess! Yeah, knowing it would be a hot summer......I thought ahead! Watch them not arrive till winter, then I paid extra for the freeze dried option & wasted my money!

Freeze dryed frozen postholes? Must have been at the other place that was higher.

Off the top of my head, I'd have to say Reverend Blair. He's quite adept a spinning a yarn and keeping your interest until the end! It probably helps that he's a published writer...but he still has my vote!

I won a set of rear wheels on ebay one time, and after the guy had them all boxed up and ready to ship, I asked him if he left the air out of the tires before he boxed them. After he told me he didn't, I asked him if it would be a problem to open up the boxes and drain the air to help save on shipping weight. He stated he never gave that a thought, and would do so. After he had the wheels re-boxed and re-weighed, he sent me an email telling me I saved $7.50 in shipping cost. I was just messing with him, and wasn't expecting him to take me serious, and later explained to him that air doesn't weigh anything, and won't make any difference in the weight. But if you say it saves me the extra money, then Thank you for the extra effort.

Not sure where they went. Everybody was skeptical at first, but most of them later fell for it.
