RIP TonyB - A Polk Forum Roast.

Okay, TonyB has unfortunately moved onto the Vanilla heavens. RIP buddy.

This thread is dedicated to the memory of our long lost friend (or enemy) and memories of him while at Club Polk. Time to Roast the guy!!! What are your favorite memories or worst experiences? Those that are buried in cement need not apply.

.....and GO!

    The corporeal being that was @TonyB still walks this terrestrial globe... but in cyberspace,his bits have, it seems, all been reset to zero.

    :(

    We still hope for a digital resurrection.

    After winning the award for "Best in show" at LASF one year, Tony actually took a photo of my "rig" for his safekeeping. Last I heard, he will not erase that photo....it means so very much to him.

    I actually think he's gone on the lam -- sittin' on a cache of black paint... but I am merely speculating.

    I had some Italian snow tires once...

    I think that's all I can say, though.

    I bought an Italian Ice Cone one time. Turned out to be a waste of money. Damn thing melted within 5 minutes.

    Went back to get a refund and the Italian wanted to break my tumbs. He stated that I should just Fuggett about it or some s***! The nerve of that guy.

    Does that make me an Italian?

    No, but if you went back a second time, that would make you a mas-o-chist. :p

    There once was a man named Tony
    Some dude called him an Italian phony
    now the guys dead
    From a bashed in head
    He will swim with fishies in the morning
