    Something like this..and newbie posts with links or pictures in the message are moderated too. They don't show up until an admin has approved it.

    In case you miss it - minus the buy-my-crap links, it reads like this:

    One day, his wife went to her husband danced before, so excited that he didn't know what to say for a moment, her husband thought she was going to dance with him, and together with his wife.
    Why are you so happy? The husband asked.
    Dear, I have a good news for you! His wife said.
    Good very! Just tell me what is the news! Husband road.
    She was no longer beating, breath, I'm pregnant! Her breathing tract.
    Husband burst with joy, arms around his wife kissing road: really!
    She speak with his mouth said: really, my dear! There are two.
    Husband asked in surprise: just pregnant and how do you know my arms are twins!
    It's easy, borrow money from gilian explains: I went to pharmacies to buy two bags of pregnancy detection tools, both packet inspection are positive!



    Do we have a linguist in the house, willing to try and pick out which language this is translated from? I mean... "tract"??

    the pregnancy joke one is still there, under adventure stories. And then there's your two, who I'm sure are fascinated by the topic of women riding bikes.

    Ruh-roh. My first reaction was "I'm going to have to start reading the spam."

    Are you sure you aren't one of them?

    What happened to your idea of possibly wrenching for a living? Back burner, or do you need a kick in the ?

    Edit, that smiley face is instead of a butt. It looks like I mean to kick you in the face. Oops!

    Yeah, I do need a kick in the butt. I have actually applied for another job, so I am slowly shifting a little bit. And considering holding local wrenching classes come spring, to test it out a bit. I don't know if it's anything to live off, but maybe just teaching will keep me happy

    I like it- it's kind of like free style verse, or eecummings haiku...

    By the way, our classes are familiarized in the direction of duos and we do not necessitate duos to spin.

    (Yup, this is actually lifted from one of our more entertaining spam posts.)
    I think that approaches spam greatness.

    I found the tandem I want. The shop has one. It fits us both. In a beeeeooootiful green color we both like. It is no longer made to the same specs (and costs $200 more now, while not being *exactly* what I've always wanted)

    Gonna test ride tomorrow.
