We seem to be drifting into "conspiracy theory" territory and away from the dufus stories.

With the plethora of stories we've all seen posted shouldn't the correct vernacular be penned dofii?

So, no one saw the flying saucer leaving the site of the bridge failure/attack with its slinky hose dragging and slide out extended. (Note the RV reference to remain on topic)

Now that's what I'm talkin about! I thought I saw something opaque in one of the photos and thought it was a ghost!

It was plainly visible in the upper right corner of the photo I posted yesterday, but has mysteriously vanished. A black class "C" flying saucer with a toy hauler ramp in the back. Had a dent in the leading edge that matched the damage to the truck..

(Boy it's early in the morning for this...)

Or not, depending on time zone and your place in the sun.

to the uhaul picture - and they won't let me rent a uhaul trailer with the wife's brand new Explorer Sport !?!?



Doofii ?!? good one...

true story- working as a cashier @ large grocery chain in high school and they regularly had 10 for... sales - 10 for $1 or 10 for $10 etc...

It never failed I would get arguments from customers about how much it was if they didn't buy 10 and wanted only 5...
#1 - there's a reason it says 10 for Misses Doofii !!! They want you to buy 10 to get that price !!!
#2 - yes, if the sale allowed it and I could sell 5 of the 10 for $10 items,
it WOULD be $1 each not 50 cents each

actually that was very good training for me (was long enough ago they didn't have scanners)
I actually had to memorize prices and calculate a lot in my head ---

Coming back from a snowmobile trip and driving through Flint at night on a nearly empty but well illuminated 3 lane I-475, a wheel on the 2 axle trailer decided to let loose. Never felt it as it ran fine on 3 wheels even with 4 machines on the trailer, nothing dragging, but I looked over and our tire was running along side of us, one of those wide 10 inchers. After at least a half of a mile we has slowed down enough to open the passenger door and nudge it to the shoulder. Another motorist helped by blocking what little traffic there was. I (the one walking amongst you) apparently hadn't tightened the lug nuts on one of the wheels.

Two year later, while retrieving a busted machine in Canada, we had to drive 40 miles on an ice pocked road with the same trailer, empty, bouncing like crazy from the very rough road. When we got out to load the machine, we saw that the spindle had broken on one axle leaving us with three usable tires. We chained the drooping axle to the frame and drove 450 miles home on 3 wheels with 4 snowmobiles.
