Re: Pogo Stick: The Bounding Spirit of the Rugged Amer
Here's to you Mr. Self Reliant. [cheers] Here's to your foresight into the world of transportation. When you had to get to work and the subways were down, you had your pogo stick. When the gas prices rocketed upward, you had your pogo stick. And, when that little punk next door stole your 1978 Schwinn Hurricane out of your garage, you still had your pogo stick.
So, today we raise our glasses high to you in honor of your self-sufficient ways. When you need to get to work, do you call a friend and ask for a ride?
You are a man. An American. A Rugged Individualist. So hop on your springy steel deathtrap and hop precariously to work as you think: "I knew I was right to keep this thing after all these years even after I broke both arms and chipped a tooth. All those naysayers were wrong!"
So, in your face naysayers and shame on you and your like-mindedness!
