    I've decided I really cannot accept this honor.... [you] deserves it far more than me..... I give all my wealth and winnings to them instead... my yacht, island off the coast of costa rica, my two mansions, and last but not least, never never land.

    I am honored, but did [you] check to make sure that all the little boys have left never never land? I would not want to be in that suituation... In fact, why dont I just give never never land to [you]. :D

    I will accept your offerings with gratitude. Please wrap them so they will not break and post them to me at: We of the Never Never, Northern Territory, Australia. I do not issue receipts.

    Normally I would post a "hey everyone I just joined" in another thread, but I just wanted you all to know that this had me both frightened and entertained for at least 15 minutes while I tried to figure out what was going on. :)

    Thoughts ran through my head like:

    "But I just registered...."
    "Maybe there's another phoenix and I should change my name..."
    "Maybe this is how they welcome new folks..."

    Then I figured it out. Awesome trick!

    Also, lovely forum and it comes very highly reccomended! I'm glad to be here. ;)

    Welcome, phoenix. We ARE entertaining, and, at times and forums to be announced, we CAN be frightening. :lol: :p

    Great Maya quote!

    Do you by chance work for some level of gummint in or around D.C.?

    I accept this honor with humility and anxiously await my prize. In the presence of the giants on this forum I feel unworthy to receive such a distinguished award.

    Hi prius owners,
    Great welcome to be honored without having put in a single post. Especially when I consider that my first attempt at sending this first post failed miserably.
    Hope this one goes through.

    So all you have to do to double your post for the year is post one more time!

    Thanks for the tip windstrings!
    To double my postings for the year, I am happy to inform everyone that I am expecting delivery of a 2006 Silver in early May. Only a couple months waiting because the colour and package I wanted was already on its way and became availalbe. I'll everyone know what my first impressions are.

    Ahh,

    You guys WILL ship my prizes to Japan, right???

    Isn't this a form of trolling?

    Anyway, it had me going too. "How could there be 11 pages of comments on such a thread" I thought to myself. I had to go back to page 1.

    OK, so here I am, and it's great that I get such recognition for not doing anything, thanks everyone! And for everyone trying to accept my prizes, you posers, quit trying to be like me. LOL!!!! Um, ok, so there's 12 pages so I surely missed SOMETHING here and I'm at work so you can be I won't read any of it. Probably a good thing, I've probably been cut on quite a bit by the looks of it. :D Sorry I was late for the party.

    Just saw this post and thank you, of all the people you could have picked you picked me :D
    I know I don't contribute much but I love the hybrid technology and I'm just doing my research while I'm getting my current car paid for so I can move on to the next. BUT, I may end up being at the opposite end of the spectrum unless they decide to build a Hybrid FJ. ;). Doubt it, I need a hybrid for my 85 mile/day commute.

    At least I can handle a joke ;)

    I am not a man of many words, but I am really touched that you have chosen to honor me in this way. First of all, I would like to thank my wife for all of her love and support, I would like to thank GM and Ford for giving compnaies to defend, but most of all I would to thank all of you PC'ers for letting me touch your life in such an important way expecially you, maggieddd. :lol:
