but since you own a Hunter people already know you're probably also a liar

Ahh, so you're saying they fell of while tied to the dock. Got it

P.S. Sorry Don (and now Spray), I don't normally get into the Hunter bashing, but you make it so much fun

That's our function and I would think we could start getting some extra consideration here for our hard working attempts at providing the rest of you easy entertainment

Btw - I get the feeling that some didn't understand I was making a joke earlier, to those

I was watching as you have to admit calling someone an idiot possibly even jokingly may be considered "not nice", but it seems as if no offense was meant and I assume none taken, but not everyone is as nice and understanding as the OP.

But on that same note, I hope you understand 99% of the "Hunter bashing" is exactly the same thing, a joke. It's not a joke I agree with myself and wish others would refrain from it as, well it's just "not nice".
Personally I wouldn't dare call someone's kid ugly, and smiling when you do so doesn't excuse it, and I would hope I would not "bash" someone's boat.
I wish I could stop all the brand bashing, and even type bashing, but it seems ingrained, the Mono Vs Cat thing, power boats are "stinkpots" just ain't gonna go away I guess?
