I'd be on board with a bear aiming a shotgun, I guess. But you don't have to please me, it's those hundreds of others you need to satisfy...

But I don't like the little pistol. It's well-drawn and all. Can he be chucking a rock instead?



Agreed! A rock, or a femur would be funnier and probably get more votes..

At this point, I don't know that I should be offering up advice on shirts. I think the joke would be funny in the right context, but I'm not sure this derby lends itself to that joke. Obviously, bears waking from hybernation is a spring thing, but I'm not sure how you can sucessfully mesh the two concepts.

I have an idea for no1--Spring Break!

Fair enough. I'm gonna have the bear HOLD beets, but otherwise, I'll tinker and when the derby hits tomorrow, I'll reveal it.

I'm not sure if a bear holding his "beets" would be PG-13.

Yeah, that's definitely gonna happen. Would it pass the pg-13 test if there was a strategically placed object in front of the naughty bits, kinda like the end of Austin Power?

So you're saying you wish college students would invade and leave thousands of beer cans everywhere while girls flash and guys stare? Oh, wait... I think you are saying that this is the everyday life in vegas. I get it.

There's the distinction. The police let people do whatever they want on the beach in Padre so long as there's no glass (at least that's how I remember it, I have been out of college a while).

Yeah, I kinda wish the plastic thing was enforced here. Also, sobriety behind the wheel would be great.

We're headed to south Florida- where my wife grew up. Probably go to Miami one day, and to the beach another couple. Won't be entering the derby this week. too bad- I had a great idea.

We're leaving tomorrow morning-will be driving until too late to enter with any chance of $. (Like I have any chance anyway. <shrug>)

Will you still be able to do the judging, or should we expect delays?

Still single, can't imagine why.

heh. The trouble is that the barnard entries is rapidly rising toward infinity...causing the two to essentially both end up at the same number=±1

Hmm... I suppose the the stress level might increase just a tad bit if you have three kids and are making additional stops.

If you ever happen to be in my area and for some reason have time to kill and can't come up with anything better to do, it would be neat to meet you. I realize the probability of such a thing happening is zilch, but I thought I would mention that just in case.

I can't think of any situation that would result in someone wanting to stop by, but there must be at least 1 situation in which that would be the case.

That would be fun.

Most excellently, the youngest just potty trained himself at 3yrs old. That's about a year younger than the other 2 did.

Of course, that means we'll have to stop when he needs to stop. Experience tells me we'll be making a LOT of stops.

Be sure to have ample entertainment and Ibuprofen.

Edit: perhaps some nyquil as well, they can't complain if they are asleep. Although, can you even give nyquil to kids?

You can give them dramamine, which = instant naptime.
