  1. Cheech – It took a minute for that synapse to fire, I get the obscure reference to “Fred”. Obviously, I must have listened to that album more than I should have.

  2. Wchid (can I call you Wchid?) – I think you spent your youth wisely! After all, you could’ve put it in Fred’s Bank.

  3. If I can call you Cheech you can call me Wchid.
    At least I learned the difference between a Langstrom 7″ gangly wrench………..Just then, this little apprentice leaned over and said, “You can’t work on a Findlay sprinkler head with a Langstrom 7″ wrench.” Well this infuriated the supervisor, so he went and got Volume 14 of the Kinsley manual, and he reads to him and says, “The Langstrom 7″ wrench can be used with the Findlay sprocket.” Just then, the little apprentice leaned over and said, “It says sprocket not socket!”
    How’s that for a misspent youth ?

  4. I cite one bit or other quite often. But not with such accuracy. I think.

    Some people have a way with words…
