    BTW, I wouldn't stand a chance with them... they are Jewish! :borg:

    *nervous laugh* Oh...riiiight...:blush:
    Okay, but I can only let you up on one condition...*takes out tagging gun**darts a tracking device into Bob's brain*"OWW!! YOU SON OF A---"
    Actually I'm a girl, so technically I'm a 'daughter' :blush: *pats Bob on head* You're free to go, but if you start meandering near Rio......*points at sky* I'll know......

    *in my best Texas accent... * Well I'll be a jack rabbit in a... Looky there wouldja'! It seems like there was a late addendum to the top 100 Billionaire's list that just missed the magazine printing.

    *grabs banjo and commences singing*
    Come and listen to a story about a man named Zel
    A poor software engineer, barely kept his family fed well,
    Then one day he was shootin' at some food,
    And up through the ground came a bubblin' crude.

    Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea.

    Well the first thing you know ol' Zel's a billionaire,
    Kinfolk said Zel move away from there
    Said Californy is the place you ought to be
    So they loaded up the Buick and moved to Beverly.

    Hills, that is.
    Swimmin pools, movie stars... *

    LOL!! Why, that's quite a tribute G.

    Whoops, I mean Tarnation! What a purdy song thet is, G-mayon. We-uns don't talk as fancy as those uppity hill-folk, but I reckon we can cotton to them if they can cotton to us. I gotta go, Maw is fixin some jowls and fatbacks, and she gets raht ornery if'n I's late to the board. See y'all later, hear?
