Please do. The only one I have though is from 2003 - the only year of the past eight when we came in second rather than first. What's up with that? :? I think Paul ended up taking the one home from this year.

I am just curious..... What could anyone want a physical trophy for most cars at Calisle award for ??

It kind of makes me think of this guy I used to work with. His cubicle was full of tons of tennis trophies. We always joked that they were at work, since his wife was probably so sick of hearing about tennis, that she made him take them to work.

I guess I don't understand the trophy idea. Just knowing that we (collectively) beat the fairlane guys is good enough for me. I do have one trophy in my office, it is for first place in the 1k relay, or something like that, at the 1999 (last year they had it) S&B Turkey Trot, our company picnic. I ended up with it, since I was one of the last to leave and it seemed poor form to leave it at the picnic site.

New Round of Sucktarian Violence Feared Brewing.
By M. Air-Coor, V, Hickle, Otto M. Obile, and Justa Carr-Guy.


Events during and at the recent pilgrimage and ritual gathering by members of a lost tribe of FoMoCo to Mecca, PA was characterized by rumblings of internecine squabbling in private and in public.

At issue appears to be control of the sacred rites and assignment of high priest/priestess positions. Positions regarding these appear to have been staked out along a generational divide.

A cohort populated by mostly younger Gen-Xer types was drawn to the preachings and sermons of the hard-line reactionary Abu Whereda Fukawi [aka Muqtada al FastMaul, his nom de guerre]. Fukawi’s platform is rooted in the philosophy of the reclusive Bin Dardundat who is committed to the overthrow of the old order.

This new cohort are called Shites, an appellation derived apparently from their fondness and dedication to creating, exchanging, and talking shite. The Shites engage in these and other secret rituals during hourly calls-to-prayers at their sacred mosque, MerkurShite where revolutionary fervor is cultivated and nurtured.

At the recent gathering in Mecca, PA, the Shites were reportedly observed openly practicing and training in their formerly secret rite of pissing and moaning, possibly in anticipation of a move to adopting insurgency tactics. Some Shites are known to be afflicted with IEDsâ€â€
