    Kinda like Elton John ... :cool:
     
  3. Last nite my girlfriend and I had this discussion of exactly HOW Elton John, of all musicians, was chosen to headline the Harley Davidson 100th Birthday party.

    We imagined a bunch of HD execs trying to think of someone "hip" and "cool" and someone who has their fingers on the pulse of popular culture for to choose the headliner of this historic event. "Hey! How about the creators of the popular South Park program on the television?" So they approach Matt Stone and Trey Parker and ask- "who should we have headline at the Harley Davidson 100th Birthday Bash? It has to be someone that's well respected, someone that everyone knows, and someone who personifies the biker image."

    Both Parker and Stone, without any hesitation, answer in unison- "Elton John."

    That's gotta be how it happened. Nothing else makes sense.

    As an expert on panhandlers (I live in San Francisco), I can honestly say no. He looks more like a European tourist, getting in my way, and taking pictures of shops on Haight street.

    No, everyone. The correct answer is: "No, your face does."

    Yes. It was in response to the original title of the thread.

    "Do these glasses make me look like a fat panhandler?"

    "No, your face does."

    I dont think European tourists look this disgusting... Some unshaven German alcoholists I've seen came close, but they were nowhere that bad.
