Thread: Ramp Idiot

This is so funny, I had to start this thread:
I'm at the ramp yesterday tuning a new rideplate angle, so the ski's on the trailer and I'm sitting there crosslegged removing bolts. Hillbilly with jailhouse tatoos walks up:
Hillbilly: "So, how fast is it?"
(I cringe, knowing exactly what is coming next)
Me: "Well, I hit 78.7 in the heat this morning, which ain't bad considering it's raining."
Hillbilly: "My Ultra 150 does 80 all day long in the heat - no problem."
At this point, I've lost any desire to talk to this jackleg, when he shoves his arms towards me and points out a couple of scars on the inside of his elbows.
Hillbilly: "In fact, my Ultra pulls SO HARD that one time when I punched it from a dead stop, it ripped my biceps. SEE? I had to have them surgically reattached."
While I'm sitting there on the ground trying to figure out how to inflict maximum damage (Torque wrench to the skull, or frisbee an R&D trim tab at his face), he finally walks away.

Pink slip him.... that will shut him up. Tell him you can do a rolling start to save his biceps.

Smitty, I thought about that. But (surprise!) he was riding a POS 1996 Sea Doo with half the stickers peeling off.

You can find similar people on youtube. I've hosted some speed videos from this site on there and the comments I get are just unreal.

Brandon (97GPSLEEPER) yelled at me for not killing the guy and feeding him to the gators. I really should have.
