Awesome photoshop work.

Now BBX will claim it was idea to retire first but everyone copied it. And Zimphire will say that all this adulation is just the rest of us "mortals" being fanboys.

Then Tooki will come in and ban your @$$ for violating the image guidelines.

There was a thread from not too long ago where some of us including gorickey and MacGorilla mentioned that we would like to retire our current usernames when a certain post number is reached.

I personally plan to retire this username before or around 1K posts.

Soon we'll be sliding down the razor blade of life

Congratulations gorickey on your 10,000th post. Say it isn't so about retiring.

OK, my last suggestion on the matter. Drop manofsteal and switch over to...

gorichie!!!


And people can ask about your obsession with the 80s singer and former Commodores frontman.

Save the rest of us time remembering ya as well.

Think it over.

Congratulations, gorickey on your 10,000 posts...not just because you racked up a big number, but because you did it without acting like an ass. Nicely done.
