Rode one for the first time in the Florida Keys, this past March. A lot of fun, but I can see how dangerous they can be in the hands of the wrong person at the helm.

This is what happens when these guys are out of work..... when they arent busy strapping thousands of tons of rocket fuel to their back, they do other stupid things.

Please put them back to work!

I was gonna try and say something witty about it, but now that I see Linux_Yes and babwa wawa have already shown up and made horribly insensitive comments.

Poindexters Jet Ski stopped moving and Poindexters own son ran over and killed him by accident.

What a horrible family tragedy. I don't know how you recover from that.

I blame Young MC for mocking Poindexter in that song "Bust a Move". After spending the last few decades having his name synonymous with standing on the wall and and not "sexing" passing chicks he tried to break out of his shell. and look what happened.

So you can be funny, but anybody else cracking a joke is horribly insensitive.

You must be an absolute hoot to hang around with.

Fair enough, I guess. Can I ask why you've chosen to honor me and Linux_Yes thusly?

If it's not readily apparent to you, no amount of explanation is ever gonna help.
