Thanks for the laugh. I almost got in trouble here at work for laughing so hard! I seriously hope it wears off ok, but I bet when you look back on this, you will be laughing as hard as I and the rest of us.

Well the stuff that I got on my hands I just sorta picked off with the razor I have sitting here on my desk. Most of it falls off with the dead skin after a while though. I don't think I would have a razor in that area either. It could lead to some trouble. Although since your going to be in a river some swimmers do shave EVERYWHERE and it makes them go faster. I donno... LOL. j/k!!!!

:bounce: I am glad I am not the only one that thinks the whole world would get a kick out of this. Gerald on the 26th you can just keep that Herculiner away from my Sport Trac and me. Just getting that out there. For your sake I hope everything will be functioning correctly by then. This is for posting my whoops (stuck) picture last time we went to 380 (360?) and not yours and laughing about it. This is very funny though.:nono:

Ya know, incidents like this often give one a nickname that sticks around for life! :eek:

Let's see - "Hercy-Hoot" comes to mind. Any other ideas?

How about just "Hootus", I think it's simple yet effective. I think Gerald should just change his member name to Hootus, (No pun intended), and then change the slogan in his signature lign to say "Old Chinese proverb say: clean hands before go pee-pee"

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!
