High quality junk here: intro thread and slow build thread

Did you know? Willys is just Willis spelled differently, but pronounced the same. Neither Willy nor his apostrophe are involved.

Those two knuckleheads brought me to laughing with and at them many times when our semi-local NPR station could still be found on the FM dial. They were a bit anti-SUV and certainly anti American Jeep in some of their political leanings and some of our email correspondence, but funny guys. I wonder if the show will continue?

Tommy will be missed.

Prolly. They both retired from making new shows a couple years ago and NPR has since been airing reruns. Suspect that'll continue till the contract runs out.
Wife: with Christmas comming up "I WANT something the goes from zero to 200 in 4 seconds or less!
Hubby: "OK"

For Christmas she got a brand spanking new...bathroom scale.
