      1. Ferdy, I have the perfect superhero name for you: Captain Hagelslag. Posted 6 months ago
        1. There is still time to delete this. Posted 6 months ago
          1. Haha! Don't you dare! If you don't like Captain Hagelslag, how about 'Dutchsquatch'? It suits because you are Dutch (duh) and tall, like a sasquatch. Posted 6 months ago
            1. This one makes more sense, but doesn't roll of the tongue easily. By the way, the word "sasquatch" was entirely new to me, we refer to the creature as Big Foot. Posted 6 months ago
              1. Glad to add a word to your vocabulary ;P. Posted 6 months ago

    1. I tried. But you can tell from the look of astonishment how little appreciation there is. Maybe it really was just going for a swim. Posted 6 months ago
