I'm gonna apologize in advance but I can't resist.

I noticed your hometown is euless which rhymes with clueless & that explains why your interested in the Katana:p

If I didn't say it Tristan (resident smartass) would have beat me to the punch. What can I say, your new. We get nicer after we've bust your chops initially.
Enjoy the site & consider yourself initiated. @ least by me. Others are in the wings waiting for their chance:D .

I've let up substantially on the Katana bashing. Now I'm focused on Idiot bashing- I'll never run out of material!
As a life long member of the foot-in-mouth gang it's reassuring to know that we can be a source of inspiration.
