Frankly, the fact it would be called 'Spot' should be a red flag...

I see your point. However, that would be a pretty cool name. If you were'nt a fan of the Munsters, then you wouldn't know that Spot was their pet that lived under the stairs. :yes:

Looks like I don't get on-line enough because I would have loved to have come across this title without the word 'hoax' in it and I missed it.

Its a good reflection on UM that we get the 'hoax' story rather than the 'hoax story', if you know what I mean. ;)

Remember folks, 5th of April is supposed to be the Alien Invasion hoax. So, watch those skies (That is, if you're in USA, France, UK and Holland)

Please note, I may have missed some countries out from the list. Sorry.

So that 500 dollar down payment I gave to Chichi who lives on the corner wasn't to save my place in the dinosaur rodeo that'll be coming in a few years?

It's like you can't trust one eyed meth addicts w/ hook hands anymore
