It's Evel...and he's crashing again...and again...and again...


Evel Knievel... loved that crazy daredevil. If you look at the ad, you'll notice that the Sky Cycle even includes a realistic "screee", the sound Evel's brain made before he plunged into the Snake River Canyon. Actually, can you imagine any other toy that was based on complete and utter failure? Normally a horrible body maiming accident is avoided as it doesn't sell product, yet with Evel it's the impetus for another toy!

I thought this was funny. Evel the poet - who knew?

Oh man, that's funny alright! The strange thing is some friends gave me that album a year or so ago. Thanks for the link - I forgot I even had that album.

That was funny. I always looked forward to the latest Knievel jump when I was a kid. Of course, you never worried about him clearing the sharks, it was the landing you looked forward to.
Also, got a chuckle out of Robbie Knievel reminiscing about how they used to hang out as a family "in the ambulance."

God hates spammers, and His judgement will come soon . . .

Holy moly!! What is up with the spam? I had to delete three spammers from this one entry. Thank god blogger lets me delete their comments, but what a pain in the butt. A pox upon the useless spammers and their polluting. May Evel Knievel appear at their door with a baseball bat. That would serve them right.

Beck started his own blog (trainorama) and within the hour we had spam. I had laugh thinking how completely interested a six year old would be in mortgage rates.
