That wasn't a hobby was it?

Must be he's on a crusade to rid the CW bands of us unruly ops!
Get over it. This is a hobby. It's not suposed to be that serious.

Nothing's gonna save us from the big drop.

If only they had filled that poor Mantee with helium instead of hydrogen... and to think he almost broke free
I like it when OPS spell out long words, it allows me time to take a swig of my beer.
Computer-encoding 5-WPM CW op types into his keyboard: "Saw a wonderful old movie last night with my dear bride, Angelica Gertrude, and it was of all things Mary Poppins and my favorite song was supercalifragilisticexpialidocious agn agn supercalifragilisticexpialidocious BT Is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious one of your favorite songs in a movie??? Bk tu AR W7UUU de WB12AQB RRRRR KN"
That allows time to start the BBQ, get the coals to temperature, season the ribs and all but put them on...
Reminds me of one of the K2x ops (don't remember which one) who, after the perfunctory exchange, breaks into a long string of something. #1: I wasn't expecting that and wasn't paying attention; #2: he must have gotten an OO card sometime because he used spaces between letters (sorry, I'm not near proficient enough to decode CW without spaces); #3: I kept thinking aren't there other people trying to get through (as a matter of fact, there were).
When he finally got done I just sent TNX FER CNT ES 73. Hope I didn't ruin his day too much. Those of you who like to rag chew, I hope you worked him.
