Clarification: They "serve" gator there. Didn't check to see if they
"serve" gators there - but they do check for IDs at the door.

I love those old references, one of two episodes that I remember from that show.

Yes. Twilight Zone, Synopsis from wiki:

A race of aliens known as the Kanamits lands on Earth and promises to be nothing but helpful to the cause of humanity. Initially wary of the intentions of such a highly advanced race, even the most skeptical humans are convinced when their code-breakers begin to translate one of the Kanamit's books, with the seemingly innocuous title, "To Serve Man."
Sharing their advanced technology, the aliens quickly solve all of Earth's greatest woes, eradicating hunger, disease, and the need for warfare. Soon, humans are volunteering for trips to the Kanamits' home planet, which is supposedly a paradise.


All is not well, however, when a code-breaker discovers the Kanamits’ true intentions: Their book, "To Serve Man", is a cookbook, and all their gifts were simply to make humanity complacent, much like fattening pigs or cows before they are slaughtered.

No, no, no. Of course not. Think of it as a... um... reference book for those who merely wish to serve gator.

And now for something completely different...

Sorry, guys. I just came across this and figured that everyone else here could use a laugh, too.

Just read the first couple of pages. Go a bit deeper, if you want to enjoy the merciless and funny comments. Epic.

OH!! That is a legendary thread there... Off topic for that thread but post #107 is a disturbing but funny post. OK, I think I might I have to browse all 100 plus pages.

Did you find it linked from another bike forum?

Post #519 (around page 25) had me rolling. Then again, so did the other photoshop'd works of art. In response to "What is seafoam," someone posted a shot of foamy ocean wash on the beach with the following, "Be sure to get it from the Atlantic."
The thread is harsh, but soooooo funny.
As someone else pointed out, just type "NOS energy" into a search engine. This thread comes up as the second result on Google; second only to the actual "DrinkNOS" sports drink web site.


Of course, I am wondering if anyone has gone drinkin' with the gator yet.

Sue Palka told me we had an 80% chance of rain. Usually, his forcasts are pretty good.
