Heinz

Heinz

Although some may confuse him with a green jar of pickles
He'll na'e be mistaken for the likes of Don Rickles

A gentleman, scholar, and virtuous man
With the patience of Job, in this new age of spam.

Our Heinz is a model for all we could be
If it wasn't for people like you, and like me.

I heard a great quote the other day,.... I forget where now,... and by who,....but it went like this:

"The individualism of the 60's turned into the narcisism (sp?) of today. " Pretty cool huh? :computer:
