Bent spokes -- wheel never crashed, no problems, but there(2 posts)

Bent spokes -- wheel never crashed, no problems, but therebill

are two spokes on my rear wheel that seem to have kinks in them. The wheel is true, the spokes seem tight, but there they are. I didn't even notice them until someone else pointed them out.
Should I worry about this? Am Classic 420's. After my first bad experience with them (pawls in hub crapped out), Am Classic replaced the hub and they've been fine. Wheels are about five-six months old.
BTW, the two bent spokes do not seem to have any relationshipbill

to each other -- they aren't adjacent or opposite, the kinks are both towards the nipples but not in the same place, and I don't think that they are on the same side of the wheel (not sure about that, though).
