    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?" ....

    LOLOLOLOLOLOL :D :D :D :D :D :D :D ROFLMMFAO

    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.

    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 .......

    Well, Scott, I am single.

    And if I wasn't, I would be by now, probably.

    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."
