If I remove this part from my Cavalier it turns over but still doesn't run. Any advice?

Oh Fred, I can't believe it's you. Have you come to take me home?

When you released me back into the ocean, I thought I'd have to spend the rest of my life living with those ugly, scaly creatures with forked tails.

It was horrible! They are so ugly and their scales are so hard and yucky!

Ferd, please take me home with you so we can live together again in your pool.

I don't want to be a bifurcated flemtopod any more.

Human explorers of the newly discovered planet attempt to discover if the native life forms may be intelligent. At the same time, a native life form attempts to discover if the explorers are good to eat.

While pretending to help Joe with his pressure regulator, Louie the Lobster (who was really a mobster), planted a "Kick Me" sign on Joe's back.

I was wondering what happened to Jim.....

You see Jim was a member here on CR4,.... and he answered one of those vitamin spam ads and ordered a 6 month supply of Stamina Boost Vitamins.

He should have read the side effects...... especially the 'MADE IN CHINA' one.

Jock Foosball struggles with the hideous wetwilly as it sends an ovipositor into his ear canal.

"Sacre Blu" shouts Jock, "I hate these wetted willys!"
