Is that little 145x142 pixel image the only one on the page?

Since this thread is bullshiat and my post for a Photoshop was declined I think I will set a new resolution to threadjack when I feel like it.

Can you believe this man used to get tail like it was no one's business and now he is engaged to this thing? UGH...
2003-12-31 06:00:11 PM  
I'm not trying to scare anybody or anything, but did you ever notice how "atlanta peach" is an anagram for "teach anal pact"?

2003-12-31 06:00:52 PM  
HAHAHAHA... Its soooo true. That thing is frikkin' UGLY.
2003-12-31 06:01:01 PM

That 'thing' is a woman? my god..
2003-12-31 06:03:52 PM  
Wow she is out of this world. I mean, really, she looks like an alien.
2003-12-31 06:04:10 PM  
Why does the story have the 'unlikely' tag?
2003-12-31 06:06:36 PM  
I don't know, I submitted it, but It had an 'asinine' tag
2003-12-31 06:07:24 PM  
It's a man baby!

but yeah, the peach looks like an ass made of cardboard. (probably better looking than that skank above though)

2003-12-31 06:09:48 PM  
andyall: You got me. I've lived in Atlanta for years and I assure you they are quite proud of the annual dropping of the giant sunburned ass....err peach.
2003-12-31 06:10:22 PM  


What is that thing on the left? It looks like the bastard child of Mickey Rourke and Gerard DePardeiu, with a dollop of Rosie O'Milkshake on the side.
2003-12-31 06:14:16 PM  
Yeah, here in Atlanta we've been doing it for years.
2003-12-31 06:16:31 PM  
the only reason I know about it is because I'm from Atlanta.

sailboat - Can you belive that Vince used to be able to sing?! I saw Motley Crue in Tampa 1997 and HE SUCKED! He was absolutley the worst part of the group. That old washed up piece of monkey crap couldn't keep his breath to sing a whole line. And know he's forking that beast.
Poor bastard. Good thread jack, by the way
How green was my valley?

Peaches were settled upon after figs were found to be too heavy and unrepresentative of the state.
2003-12-31 06:17:47 PM  
That's nothing compaired to the butt of the nation - the Gaffney, SC Peachoid, a million gallon water tower in the shape of a peach - or butt - depending on who you ask.
2003-12-31 06:21:39 PM  
What, no J Lo jokes?

/color me disappointed
2003-12-31 06:28:09 PM  
WCU_Guy : Wow, i came in here to comment about the 'peach' in gaffney.

It really does look like an ass with a pretty heinous hemmorroid.
2003-12-31 06:36:47 PM  
Every year on ABC, they splitscreen the big ass and the big ball and drop both simultaneously.

And yes, Vince Neil's fiance is a MAN baby, yeah.
2003-12-31 06:41:09 PM  
WCU_Guy, I've seen that thing, right on the side of I-85 right? That thing really does look like an ass.

Why on earth do Americans insist on dropping things to celebrate New Years Eve?

I just don't get it...
2003-12-31 08:19:55 PM  

It's better than firing guns into the air..wait, we do that too..
2003-12-31 08:59:05 PM  
This isn't the dumbest piece of food that's been lowered to ring in the new year. I remember a few years ago going to the Fiesta Bowl New Year's thingee, and seeing a giant fiberglass tortilla chip being lowered into a salsa bowl at the stroke of midnight.

I dunno if they still do it, but I imagine they do since Tostitos is still the primary Fiesta Bowl sponsor.

In Fredericksburg Virginia we have a stupid pear drop. I have no idea what it means to the town, but not everything in the here in the south makes a lick of sense. Remember slavery?

Atlanta sucks. The only saving grace of the city is the decent season the Thrashers are having this year.
2004-01-01 02:20:21 AM  

John Lovitz is dating a transexual?
2004-01-01 11:42:33 AM  
Eew. Looks like Vince Neil bought the extra-special, limited edition Beef Jerky RealDoll.
2004-01-01 12:07:54 PM  
The headline is sooo true. I didn't even *want* to watch the Peach, but the local station goes to split screen with a minute to go, so you are forced too.

Anyway, as we watched the toob, right at the stroke of midnight, I said "damn, that looks like giant plumbers crack...", and the result was my wife shot champagne out her nose.

So I suppose she saw the truth in it my observation.

/no offense to actual plumbers

Aside from the whole "Heatley kills teammate" thing.
