That's three pounds ten shillings to you, and in '52 that was still a lot of money. No wonder Nessie was pissed.

Subby, do you really think that damn giant crustacean from the Paleolithic era would have gone away if he got his damned treefiddy? Course not. You give him treefiddy he's gonna assume you got more.

I haven't seen South Park in years but I recall when I saw that episode thinking that was one of the most delightfully off the wall things I had ever seen on tv.

Perhaps. You could take the high road and explain yourself.

My relative Bobby Sykes Sr. built the engine for the Z-Z-Zip racing boat.
He was friends with Keith Black, Clay Smith and Ed Iskenderian.
According to my mom, Clay smith had a Road Runner sticker on the wall of his shop and since Clay was always smoking a cigar Bob drew one on the roadrunner as a joke.  Later that became his logo.

It was around that time I realized mah beloved Fark was actually that gottdamned Loch Ness monsta. Ah said git outta here monsta, I ain't got no tree fiddy!

/My debut post on Fark was in a Loch Ness monster thread 12 years ago. //"Tree Fiddy" cracks me up every time. It's never not funny.
