"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor, your ill dressed, ill prepared, sopping wet bottomed, freezing cold handed.
Your huddled masses yearning to ski free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming states of Texas and Florida.
Send these, the clueless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden magic carpet!"

Bob, read your pm's.

 

Here's our very own t-shirt with the definition.

I think we  could do better though with Gaper Boy.

I think we need a sticky with a template of the "gaper-phil" image that can be downloaded. Any user can than load Gaper-Phil onto any photo. This way, we can have living thread of Gaper-phil in peoples family pictures, weddings, beach scenes, kids parties and such. I think it has potential!

Phil should have trademarked himself.  It's not too late Phil(TM) !

Is it too late to point out that Phil's nonono2.gifTexas Suitcase is defective?  You're supposed to also put the opposite pole ends and baskets through the pole straps in addition to the skis.

That's true, isn't it, crgldart? He's setting a bad example for gapers everywhere.

 

I think Phil is an imposter. Not a true gaper. Phil, you've been outed!

 

Alas....

Bob

Maybe he could be prosecuted for pushing "knock off" Texas Suitcases (TM) and Houston Handbags(TM)Rules.gif

And get some gaiters! Rookie!

 


Really Phil! Get it together. Two hands required for the Texas Suitcase??? That qualifies as a meta-gaper.

When I was in college the dean of the fine arts dept was trying to convince me to change majors from pre-med to be an artist.   He took me on an exclusive tour to a few locations in NYC, including some Artists Society Club, Marvel Comics and Mad magazine, where I met the chief editor/creator William Gaines.   The office was even crazier than the magazine.   Ancient, and a total mess with crumpled paper on the floor, books and magazines everywhere....and small/cramped.    Additionally as a little boy, one of the creators of Mad (may have been Gaines) had spotted me in NYC and asked my parents if he could photograph me.  They agreed and he gave them a huge poster of me.....end jack'ing.

I take it you didn't go the artist route since you are "Richie-Rich" (I read those before MAD). 

 

Actually, my ski buddy from the 80s (when I was young and single) went to a comic book art school in New Jersey.

 

Now back to "Picking on Phil", err I mean "Where's Phil".

That's just awesome... a bottom gap gaper.  Is the lower helmet part actually over his eyes or just above them?

Hmmm Tog, I don't know if I can give you full  "gaper" status --  girls can get away with more than guys without looking dopey.

 

I'm sorry about your Big Sky friend below and his serious looking neck injury.

Three weeks ago I had a student show up with their helmet on backwards.  It kept falling down and covering her face.  I managed a straight face and told her that it would fit better if she turned it around.  Straight outta Texas.

Thanks for your concern Pete! That's not me though but the girl who wrote the article with no name I could find.

Nice cell phone tower!

Maybe you could sell it to AT&T. Their network could use all the help it can get.

Gaper version of the Statue of Liberty. ^^

(Shouldn't someone be fired? Maybe the stamp itself?)

Hi Bears:

 

Enjoyed this thread immensely.  However, I really have to "question" the priority of Bears who are more eager spotting  Texas Suitcase "gapers" than spotting hot skiers nicely filling out a pair of tight ski pantseek.gifbiggrin.gif.
