      That is great!!! I haven't stoped cracking up about this all day. all in all though.....At least the herculiner was the only thing that got stuck, I mean it would be bad if his hand got stuck too! this is such a trip.

      Hey, I just came up with another idea. How about "Hercules". Gerald no one would ever guess where the name came from (except for the 1000's of people on this forum)!! This reminds me of the story in the Day Brightner thread in this forum. In it this guy works in the deep sea and while he is down there working a jellyfish gets sucked into the hose thet supplies warm water into his pressure suit. So this jellyfish just keeps stinging the crap out of him through all of his depressurization levels until he gets to the surface. BTW the stings were mostly in his buttomous maximus. So see, Gerald it could be worse!

      Man I hope I never get into a predicament like this cause as they say, revenge is sweet, and I know Gerald would be leading the charge on that one.

      Hey pal, have you gotten it off yet? Don't know if it was mentioned, but I know peanut butter works with freeing super glued skin, actually, from what I understand it works real well. Figuring this stuff is probably as sticky as super glue, so you may want to examine this route. Gives a whole new meaning to Peanut Butter I guess.:p:D

      Let's just hope the marketing department of Herculiner doesn't get this story. They might come up with a new, skin-friendly product and call it "Hootusliner", the one for "other" applications.

      I guess Gerald just wanted to test out the saying, "Once you go BLACK, you never go back." You'll have to let us know if it's true! :smoke: :p
      Still, ROFLMFAO!

      But now that his Hootus has a permanent rain coat do you think he really needs a hat?

      Gerald "Hootus" Jarrett the new poster boy for Herculiner.....

      scene: tractor dumping load of bricks in the back of a pickup box..."You've seen how well Herculiner works in your box ;) but have you seen what it can do for your Hootus?" ....

      Get up, make coffee, go to computer, read about Gerald's hootus.

      Considering viability of whole new forum website pertaining to this topic. It is understood that content is the name of the game.
      Based on initial survey response, projected IPO status (HOOT) within 6 mos.
      Note: Prior to HOOT site/corporation development, secure contract w/ GJarrett for monthly "re-dipping" to insure topic stays "fresh".
      Also, prospective major advertiser for website (Herculiner), specifically requests installation of an odometer on said hootus to promote/validate durability claims of the product.

      wabbit,

      That was really funny!!!

      Gerald,

      I want to know what your wife thinks of this - does she find the humor in your, ah, predicament? And does she appreciate our help and commentary?

      I'm going to be laughing all the way to Colorado .......

      Quite the predicament!

      After reading about the plight of Gerald, I realized that this was exactly what I had been looking for--a new plot and title for a children's book I have been trying to write for quite some time.

      Now I know what to call it--"Horton Hears a Hoootus". It's about an overzealous elephant who gets into trouble when he dips his trunk into a pool of black tar. The rest of the story follows his adventurous approaches to removing it. He is given advice from those truly wanting to help as well as those that just don't give a hootus(thus the title).

      Seriously though, I hope Gerald can remedy the situation without too much trouble(although the Acetone episode almost doubled me over in agony). Gerald, keep us updated as to the adventures of Horton and let us all know how and when he gets the tar off his trunk.

      I think we should send out a bulletin to the city of Ouray. Bulletin reads: "Attention single women of Ouray, CO. we will be visiting your town over the labor day weekend and have a really special treat. One of the "MEMBERS" of our group has just completed herculining his hootus. For those of you not fimiliar with herculiner, it is a rubbery substance USUALLY used for lining truck beds, but Gerald "Hercules" Jarret has taken this protective substance a step further. He comes with automatic condom protection and is textured for your pleasure and is gauranteed to "STAND UP" against the most gruelling wear and tear. He may be contacted at http://www.permahootus.com."
