    Yes but is there going to be a fairy involved?

    Is anyone going to be lost at some point?

    Is it cheating to have a compass?

    There are worse ways to go. We respect and return all remains to family, but somebody may be Jonesing for your abandoned ride.

    I survived a couple of these, but then, you'll have to decide if I am "geezer class" or not.

    Of course Ken, if you don't run circles around us, we'll make sure you're with us to the end safely...if we in fact make it that far! :D

    Santa was smarter than us. He stayed home in the North Pole where the weather was better, and the snow wasn't as deep.

    You should be able to fit all the pieces into one of these.

    Just wear your Hair-Hat, and maybe you can pass as a preezer.

    That may work for your scrawny arse but if I kick it a slightly different approach may be in order

    It's hard to say what's better - the initial explosion of vaporizing whale, or the steady prolonged rain of vaporized whale bits that follows.
