    are the most god awful annoying things ever. They are everywhere outside. Seems like every time I walk outside I have one flying in my face. The kid I work with even got stung two times in two days by one. Anyone get these things? This has just been a horrible summer in general.

    I hate Yellowjackets...or any flying bug for that matter...or any bug for that matter.

    I had little yellowjacket nests all over my porch a few weeks ago that I had to get rid of.

    I like the ones from Georgia Tech. I will even wear my GT hat to work tomorrow.

    BB...you think the mafia could do something about the Yellowjackets?

    I hate them.

    Especially when they're in the SUV right in front of me at the drive-thru.

    I like the "Yellowjackets" especially their earlier stuff with Ricky Lawson on Drums. Jimmy Hislop is an underrated "monster" on the bass.

    He's not human. I've never heard him, but just knowing that he plays left handed with the E on the bottom...it's not human. How do you even attempt that? :)
     
  12. And he does some slapping, too. 8)

    Boy did this thread get off topic (maybe that's part of why they call this the "off-topic" subforum).

    His "weapon of choice" is an LG 3006, which is known by some as the "Jimmy Haslip Model".

    However, he does own an SKB 3007 as well.



    ...oh, and kserg, you are a bit confused, that's MY yellow zoot suit...

    :cool:
