I don't get it


that's hilarious!


I actually do this even though im not a strongman- funny stuff


got it from another poster on this forum (chtdrmn) funny shit.

Another thing that I could add that happened tonight at the gym.

Backstory- I usually train with my headphones on blaring some music that has very hateful and angry lyrics. Well I'm about to leave but before I take off my headphones, I look up to the television monitors overhead by the aerobic machines (where I hang my gym bag).

There is a MASSIVE pumpkin, with large words beneath it that say "PUMPKIN ON STERIODS".

Now my mind instantly puts together that, apparently someone's synergized AAS and agriculture and by ingesting said pumpkin and other vegetables, I'll be gaining an anabolic advantage!

I rip off my mp3 player to hear more!


no, its just big... he uses miracle gro or some shit. Disappointed i tip over the recumbant bike and walk away. Leaving a bewildered old man in biker shorts pedaling away vigorously several bikes down the row. Unbeknownst [not a word] to him I just set off the mother of all aerobic dominoes.



Speaking of pumpkings (and this is way off base), my father told me that he recently read something about if you can grow a pumpkin that is 1000 pounds or 1500 pounds (forgot which one), the people at the University (for studing reasons or something) will give you $100,000 :slightly_smiling: I'm not sure if that is just for Minneasota or every state. Pretty interesting, if you ask me.


Yeah this is all well and good, but the whole pushing the car thing...well think other wise.

Flashack 10+ years ago....snowy night, i happened to drive my car into a big ditch...what did i do, i got out, started to push the car up the ditch...had it out half way, and then realized that i had just knocked the axle off its hinges and now had to get it towed and fixed.

Sometimes it is better off letting the tow truck handle your problems.

Now my car is much bigger and so am i, but the tow truck will be called if this happens again.



If you use your hand to kickstart a dirt bike, because you can...

If you have bar scars on your back from squatting, or your shins from deadlifting...

If you always volunteer to help your buddies move, because you like lifting heavy stuff..

If your wife irons your bench shirt..

If you talk to your weights in a reverent tone....


Gear my man, gear.
