What I want to know is how you get a musselman down the barrel.

Really a rough way to send them to allah for their 72 white rasins.

I had no idea there was a specialized tool for that. I just rake them out of the pot with a spatula and load them up on my plate.

About ten years ago I worked for a big collection agency that was always hiring the best bill collectors in the business. At one point the personnel department put a help-wanted ad in a large Florida newspaper, seeking "Top-Gun Collectors." Several days after the ad ran, the department got a phone call from a guy asking how many guns we needed to buy.

Dear FRiends,

Like many of you, I enjoy the many benefits that Free Republic offers all of us. Although I have not had the free time as of late to contribute as much as I would like to the forum, I still have been checking in, seeing what's happening and getting what we won't get out of the lamestream media - the truth.

Some of you may remember that, during the first quarter fundraiser, I volunteered for a task near & dear to my heart: raising funds for FR. To do that, I asked FReepers and lurkers to donate whatever amount they could for every mussel I ate at a local Chinese restaurant. The "event" was a success, and raised several thousand dollars above and beyond the regular quarterly goal. For more info on the original event, check this out: Mussel Man Challenge (it opens in a new window)

Now, I know the quarterly fundraiser is over, and the goal was met plus some. But the fact is that, in my ever so humble opinion, no amount is 'enough'. Free Republic has played a MAJOR role in recent years in getting the truth out to the public. Not only that, but it has given us all a place to find refuge from the daily onslaught of liberal lies in the mainstream press. It has given us what so many commercial websites have failed miserably at - creating a true, grassroots community. That's why I am not happy to just "keep the lights on" with quarterly fundraisers.

Therefore, I am prepared to once again offer my stomach to the cause of FReedom, and am proud to announce my second endeavor to raise a little extra money for the cause. So, on Saturday, August 16, 2003, I will make the trip down to the local Chinese restaurant once again and see how many mussels I can eat in the name of FReedom. And you get to have an impact on the greatest Conservative website in existence today.

Here's is what I am asking of you - please take a moment to make a pledge on this thread for each mussel I eat. Make a pledge for whatever you feel you can afford, whether it's .05 cents, .10 cents, .25 cents or more. My record currently stands at 101 mussels, and I fully intend on breaking that record, even if it is by just one mussel.

If you are a Colorado FReeper, and would like to join me on that day to eat lunch and have a little fun, let me know and I'll send you the details. I am in Grand Junction, and would love to hear from you!

This time around, as I did last time, I will be taking along my camera and getting a few pics to share with everyone after the event.

So, what are you waiting for? Make your pledge today and help make Free Republic the strongest it can be.

Few things worse than taking a hit from a high-velocity clam.

What's amazing is that it took the seller a whole day to figure it out...
