If I am on your back

  1. May 12, 2004 #1
    Since I only really post in this forum, this is only appropriate here.
    Please, take this as notice I never meant to be there and am hereforth removing myself from this position.
    It's not that I don't enjoy the possibility of getting a free piggy back ride, I simply didn't mean to get on anyone's back.

    Please accept this as an apology to anyone who got any unfair back riding from me. Perhaps in the future, we can setup a cooperative backriding scheme.


    Sincerely,
    Monky

    P.S. I love Zero.

    Ther's a fascinating thought: self-referential piggy back! Maybe the Chinese acrobats could do it?

    In before the move to general discussion....


    When I was in Las Vegas last week, I saw a show called "mystere"
    http://www.treasureisland.com/pages/ent_mystere.asp
    I got free tickets that would normally cost 100 bucks. Before hand, I would have NEVER thought of paying that to see a show. Afterwards, I realize I would happily have spent every single penny! It was incredible! And yes, they could do it :eek:

    I don't believe you.
    Prove it.

    I get a weekly threat of banning if I don't stop doing something or another. If I disappear one day, it wasn't by my own devices :)

    I dunno how I can prove that I really did like the acrobats, however I guess it is possible that I am a conspirator trying to garner more business for the mystere team!!! :eek:

    Everytime I see the word phatmonky I'm always reminded of that beastie boys song. "...brass monkey, the funky monkey"

    How did you come up with that name, and why of all words in the dictionary did you pick that one?

    It was done as a sort of joke 10 years ago. It stuck when I realized other names I would prefer were taken on boards, e-mail, etc.
    Not many people spell both fat and monkey wrong :p

    It seems to have stuck (at least with modern society) as now many things in stores are called phat. Even large shirts with "fat is phat" and such and such.

    Mystere is awesome. I've seen it twice, it changes a little from time to time, but always incredible. Do they still have those two guys that do (I don't know how to describe it), not acrobatics, not gymnastics, ack, I can't think. :grumpy: Anyway, they were unbelieveable.

    Sounds pretty credible :biggrin:. He's probably just on an extended bathroom break or something.

    I checked, his last post was dated almost a week ago. Could he be working out fanatically? Hey Zero, come back soon, your absence is acutely felt here :biggrin:

    I swear I saw zero online earlier, but he's not posting. Very strange. :confused:

    I really miss him.

    Well, he was on that diet and working out. Yep, zero is probably resident stud on some beach now, a bikini clad babe on each arm.
