If only I could convince my boss that it is a work of art by an italian master painter.

On the other hand, it it came with papers certifying the artist.....


Seriously, I think you should raise the price to $1500 and then when negotiating, drop it to $1100. That way the buyer could convince the boss this was a good deal. ;>)
On second thought, I am so tired of Spirito's shameless behaviorSlipstream

that just to put a stop to this I think we should hold our first RBR auction right now.

I will start the bidding at 99 cents.

Let's give Spirito's bike a home for Easter, since I have it on inside information that it was his bike that did in the Easter Bunny.
Could it be....grzy

Could it be that this was the actual bike that the ill fated Easter Bunny was riding? At 52 cm c-c it's sized just about right. ;-b

I'll bid a $1.29 b/c I think it was in an accident.
ill bid $150 (as the gallery goes ooh and ahhh) nmspiritos sceret bidding friend

no-one buys my bike and bits.

but i appreciate your help and if ever you visit NYC ill cook dinner for you.

i wanna try some new recipies like

Hasenpfeffer - Rabbit

1 Rabbit
Salt water
1 Onion
12 Cloves
Equal parts butter and lard
Little cinnamon
1 tb Vinegar
More flour

Soak rabbits in salt water several hours; rinse
with clear water. Put in a kettle and cover with
water, adding onion studded with cloves. When
tender, remove from pot, roll in flour and fry in
fats until brown. Just before it's done, add
cinnamon and vinegar; cover and let smother a
minute or two. Put rabbit on platter, make gravy
with pan drippings and flour, then add cooking
liquid from boiling the rabbit. Pour gravy over
rabbit and serve.

i have never eaten rabbit but i regularly feast on coniglio.

did i hear $250 or the next rabbit gets it.

Bah. Salt water indeed.Ahimsa

If it is wild rabbit you need to simmer it in wine. Otherwise it will be gamey.

In truth, there is little point to eating rabbit. Chicken is tastier and cheaper. Get a capon if you want to be experimental or throw some extra dough down on din din.

Still, best bet is the organic chiken. Free ranged and free of all the nasty stuff they put in the feed.

But then again, why believe me, I'm a vegetarian.

rabbit indeed is a tasty dish and deserves to be served on its own merits. it is very lean and has its own subtle flavour. a rustic light bodied red is its perfect compliment. the best way i like is pieces slowly braised in a pot with lentils, garlic, celery, carrots, onions, thyme, bay leaf and rosmary - and a light stock.

of course season first before BROWNING THE MEAT.

which reminds me of an old girlfriend of mine.

she wasnt much to look at but on our first date she said she'd like to play snooker. whilst playing a shot she coyly looked over at me and said the following words that hotted me and had me lusting; - " snooker isn't the only game i like to play where pink is sunk after brown". of course it was a short, torrid but very lusty affair and my sheets were discarded shortly after.

but the memory is always treasured. she did have some behavioural charecteristics that some attribute to rabbits as well - indeed i can only assume that she has at least 15 kids since i saw her 3 years ago. she is a good catholic girl.

i guess im in trouble now.
$200--need the evidence to frame Spirito (reserve not met)hasenpfeffer

P.S. It wasn't really an Easter Bunny at all. Just a big poseur who got his kicks out of dressing up in lycra and hopping about where the hot dominatricies dwell.
