    From that site:

    Let's face it, System Administrators get no respect 364 days a year. This is the day that all fellow System Administrators across the globe, will be showered with expensive sports cars and large piles of cash in appreciation of their diligent work.

    Jim,

    Unfortunately the box of cash shipped from Dane in Missouri has been quarantined in Nebraska for tax purposes (we tax everything here). The Unicameral here is deciding what tax would apply to said box, or if they need to create 3 more to cover it.

    In the interim, they did concede that Dane owes $1509.29 in "shipping near Nebraska" tax. Unless he wants to challenge it, in which case if Dane's income is over $150,000 a year the tax will be reduced by half. Income under $45,000 a year and the tax is doubled. Nebraska...the good life.

    Well, OK. As long as the Apron stays in the package, you can have the cash.

    Jim...if we see that apron we'll use it for target practice...

    Hmmmmmmmm...maybe we should remove it from Dane before we start?...

    Only if he promises to send cases of Flat Tire to New Haven, Kentucky

    and bottles of Stagg to Santa Rosa?

    Call it Dane...

    Dadgummit, that box was supposed to go via Oklahoma to get there SOONER not via Nebraska where those huskers would shuck it clean. As a Mizzou grad I shoulda known that Oklahoma blows and Kansas sucks so it would naturally end up there via the slipstream. Anyhows, I got me a Nebraska Tax waiver signed by Tom Osborne (The King of Nebraska) that should get it back on it's way unless it crosses Colorado where it will need five tries to get it across the state line instead of the four normally needed.

    As for the apron, it has been either burned or stashed away awaiting a time appropriate for it's reappearance. I'm not saying which or when.

    But the Fat Tire to New Haven is a possibility since I'll be living less than an hour away from the brewery in a month or so...and Stagg to California? Where do you think I got mine in the first place?

    Out trumped by the Osborne card, ... and for your information mister smartie pants, it's not king Osborne, we prefer Saint Tom divine and holy emperor of the nondescript flat lands.
