Pardus... You should just come out and admit that that is your cupboard :twisted: :twisted:
At the end of it all you don't want to go into the grave peacefully and quietly in well preserved body... You want to go sort off skidding in sideways, full of bruises and scratches saying: "Man what a ride!!!"

Everyone gone quiet for fear of having to wear the "thing"?

Rather certain that the "thing" will be worn by you yourself Captain! Not so sure whether Im looking forward in seeing you in that "thing"! I was thinking of bringing a welding helmet along, for me to wear, or I can rent it out to people who fear to see you in that!!! :D :lol: :shock:

He is the one that needs to wear it, Gerhard. You definitely need to cover your face for this sort of thing.

Hey guys :)

Thanks for taking the spirit of the mankini challenge :) I know it was painful to see it in full swing :) The spirit behind it made the event even better :)

Although I am of the opinion that next time Sparrow must wear it since he seemed to like his (mini)skirt just a little to much :twisted: :twisted:

Sparrow - Your the man!! :thumbs_up:
