I remember laughing my a$$ off when I read that haiku the first time.

My wife gets lots of deliveries to the house. My daughter calls the UPS guy "Brown Man" and the FedEX guy "White Man". She also thinks every UPS and FedEX truck she sees is the same one that comes to our house. Funny stuff.

J flips on the news and looks on in horror. In the smoldering wreckage he can just make out the "M" in Merckx. He drops to his knees in front of the TV. In disbelief he screams, "NOOOOOOoooooooo!!!!"

Don't worry J, it's not charred. That's just Eddy's special heat treated Al tubing. You got a Lim. Ed. paint job too. It's called "Natural Soot". :-)
