Post 107: Not the Millennium Falcon

Remember how worried everyone was about the Y2K “bug”? Everyone partied like 1999 was going to be the End of The World as We Know It. Survivalists were buying up supplies and digging bomb shelters and buying ATVs that they were gonna convert to solar power and stuff. Good times, good times.

As you know, nothing happened on January 1st 2000 except a few hangovers and the odd child conceived in the heat of the moment. Oh, and eggnog latte went away for the season. Looking back, Sparky thinks he might be able to profit from that excess of preparation.

Buying not runing ATV – $1 (Boyo)

I’m looking for suzuki,yamaha or honda ATV 350 cc and up 4×4 with mechanical problems .need to be 2000th and up.text picture and price to XXX-XXX-XXXX.

Please respond with email with picture,asking price and description of you ATV an phon number to call

So Sparky wants you to send him a text. And then guess his email address and send picture of your ATV. Seriously, a phon number? If you text him from your phon, he’ll have it. 2000 did not see an end to Sparky-ism.

Thanks, One. Hope you find the ATV of your dreams.

  1. Why does Sparky want a picture of me in an email sent by text? And what does that have to do with an ATV with no runes?
    I think his use of grammar, spelling, and the Oxford Comma have mechanical problems. Maybe he added headlight fluid to his brain by mistake.

  2. I only have 1999 ATVs. If I ever buy my 2000th one, I’m planning on it not having mechanical problems. And if it aint broke, I haven’t worked on it yet.

    Ah. Well… I attended Juilliard… I’m a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I’ve seen the EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES, AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT… NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU’RE TALKING TO A DEAD GUY… NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK? You think I’m qualified?

  4. Personally I think it’s Druid code as he’s ‘buying not runing’ and also used the Welsh word for male: Boyo. So I’m just stepping quietly back into my TARDIS and heading back down this rabbit hole.
