A guy commented to me "you must be crazy drive a thing like that" I looked at him and twitched and said "dose it show?" I then yelled at my wife " Hey honey bring me that medication the prison doctor gave me" the guys face went blank and he slowly turned to walk away so as not to disturb me any further

That was a hell of a nice thing to do. That's one for the good guys.

Not at the ramp, but asked almost every weekend by other boaters. With having a black boat with a black deck, we're asked 'isn't that thing hot?' I respond 'only when you step on it'.

I need a better come back! Any suggestions?

I keep having these girls come up and ask if they can get a ride while tanning topless..... I just have to come up with a snappy comeback instead of just ignoring them


Afterall, the wife wouldn't approve

I heard one guy say to his buddy as they walked by my boat at the gas dock that my center engine was my generator!
