Not many people know that I met up with Rube Goldberg once in Edlanastanamanacancfanaitzakadoozie. We put together an enormous machine that would unzip your trousers for you. This wonderous machine spanned three and one half and one quarter and one eight and one more half of a football field. It all started when a tribesman would sneeze spraying spittle across the face of Rube himself. Rube when then fall backwards into a srping, and oh how the outrageous fun would begin. The spring would trigger a ball of dung to roll down a steep incline, the dung would take an incredible trip through such gadgets as accordians and sticks and stones, and even a little toy man on a unicycle that would cycle across a length of nylon string. Of course the whole ruckus would end when a now slightly smaller ball of dung would hit a poor little mouse on his little mousy butt and he would run over and zip my fly. Oh what fun Rube and I had in Edlanastanamanacancfanaitzakadoozie, or was it Fandswanialanddaisyloo, I forget.
How about turning that into a challenge? I bet nobody else comes up with it.

How would the winner be determined?

By removing the trousers and seeing if there's a mouse inside.

I can tell that's a great idea by all the caps and exclamation marks!

Watch out eric, The last time I made fun of someone using all caps, with exclamation marks. I got a mean email back explaining that this person was partly blind and had to write that way so they could see. Boy I felt bad. SO BE CAREFULL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmm... maybe they were partly deaf, too, and needed all the exclamation marks so they could hear.
