    As much of a Rockets fan as I am (up here in VT with no TV, following them almost exclusively through clutchcity.net), it took Det the Threat's sig to bring me out of my lurkdom to register, so I could post this. I kept looking at that mess of symbols in your sig, Det The Threat, and assuming that it was just a mess of symbols. When it occurred to me that it might not be, and I looked at it some more, and finally got it, I was rotflmao (figuratively, anyway). COOL. [​IMG] +1

    That is all.

    Back to my little lurkhole. There are two more weeks of winter up here, you know...

    "burlesk" spelled sideways is "lurk bs e", which is true in my case.

    Popeye? You do realize the symbolism in the Popeye right?

    Nope. Don't get the significance of Popeye at all. ? I'm just barely older on this site than Clutch's new baby.

    I do not believe in god. And it is nice to know that I am going to hell with Hitler, and McVeigh. Although I do not know why.

    It is just something that I found on the net...I had to add some dots because in the signature area, somehow spaces are not recognized or something. Since I found this Popeye thing accidentally, I thought it would be a good idea to ask one of the most informative posters on the board to come back with his original name...I like it much better than the new one.

    You can find little pictures like that when you look for "ascii art" in a search engine like Lycos or Google. But as I said, you have to modify them to make them look right in a signature on the UBB.

    ------------------
    Rockets' offseason tasks in order of priority:
    • Get rid of Cato under any circumstances.
    • Sign Chris Webber.
    • Re-Sign Hakeem.
    • Re-Sign Moochie and AirBullard.
    • Pick up the Langhi option for another year.
    • Trade for Bo Outlaw and Raef LaFrentz.

    ...C_..`....,_/
    .....|.;----'

    come back with your original name...now that everyone is changing their screen names anyway :)

    If that is Gumby, then I am Phyllis Diller's mother, and Francis 3422 is going to hell to pay for the cartoon sins of Popeye, which I can't remember any more than I can remember ever BEING Popeye... but since I read it at clutchcity.net, I guess it's true... thanks for clearing that up, F3422.

    Popeye wouldn't pull your leg. He ain't no Doc Rocket... (cue mysterioso music)...
