Don't Tell Shermanfreak!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, October 4, 2003 4:36 PM
Everybody be quiet and listen..Have you noticed that shermanfreak is getting dangerously close to the Big 2k mark?.It's probably going to happen by the time I get this posted at the rate he goes..Anyway, I think we should do something to surprise him. How about we all pool our money and get a 1/1 scale Sherman and plop it on his front lawn?...What do ya think?..shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!

Maybe I'll just hotwire a Leopard from CFB Edmonton and take it on a joy ride.

What a coincidence, it ran flat out of gas on what appears suspiciously like an Alberta armor modeller's lawn.

I think there's a fellow here somewhere in Alberta with a Chieftain tank in running condition that he bought when the British Army retired them, hmmmm..... ;-)

Maybe we can all chip in and get him the L60, then put cardboard around it to make it look like a Sherman? He'd never know the difference.

I second Keyworth's great idea. Unfortunately, you'll have to get the money from my wife, she pilferred my wallet.

Let's see ..... so far I'm getting a 1:1 Sherman, a King Tiger, an L-60 in Sherman clothing, a 1/16 R/C Sherman, and a ride around central Alberta in a stolen Leopard.

All this for just having the fastest fingers (biggest mouth) on FSM.

It just doesn't get any better than this.

I wonder if Shermie will get a new star or a color change? Perhaps he will get a promotion of some kind? Any ideas?

I think they'll ban him for incessant spammingEvil [}:)]...
LOL, j/k, shermie!
They'll probably make him a mod or admin, that or say "congrats" and keep on truckin'!

For his 2000th, though, I say we give him a fly-over of Central Florida in that B-52D that's parked right near the Orlando International Airport! For the grand finale`, we'll open the bomb-bay up, and let him parachute out over Disney World!!
Whaddya think, Shermie? Ya wanna go flying over Florida in a stolen B-52?!

Hmmmm ...... stolen B-52's and Mickey Mouse .... maybe it does get better.

With my luck though, I'd get dropped in the swamp next to Renarts house.

And just so everyone knows who the loudmouth was ....... it was Merlin himself ..... sent me an e-mail, just couldn't stay quiet.

The mental picture of Shermie, ridding a pink bathtub down onto Disney after being dropped out of a B52 al la Slim Pickens in Dr. Strangelove. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.........

It has its merits. Do Canadians have a version of "YEEEEEE HAWWWWWW"?

Hey, we're Albertans, cattle ranching and oil. We're Canada's answer to Texas!

Yeeeeeeeeee Hawwwwwwww!!! Is practically a way of life for some of us out here :-)

Can you load a stolen Leopard tank into the bomb bay of that stolen B-52 of yours? We could paint both the plane and tank pink. Imagine that coming down over Disney.

Shermy must be cooking up something BIG. He sure is stringing out that 1999th for a long time...

The suspense is more than I can bear.

And I'm NOT the one who told...HE's lying!!!Evil [}:)]
