I am going to work with the assumption that Lord Huemungos is actually using "Hue" creatively somehow and that he did not simply spell Humungus wrong.

Bronze, I have the same problems with clients, so-called designers, and past product managers who excel at generalities.

"No, I wanted a redder red!" HUH? Here's a Pantone color book, YOU pick a red you like.

Or the time I was asked to design a spring model.

Uh, what kind of spring?

What do you mean?

Tension, compression, artesian...?

I don't know what you mean...

Does it involve water, or is it like a slinky?

Oh! It has to do with water, I think...

This from a museum exhibit 'designer'.

Batmax, wasn't there a big battle in Hue during the Tet Offensive? That was a Huemungous battle.

rock, thank you very much. As I age gracefully, I find that patience and a more laid back and understanding response to others works well. I cut A LOT of slack, but there comes a time when there's no question as to provocation. I just save my energy for the clear cut battles. And try to be the bigger man/take the high road until I NEED to throw a beatdown on somebody.

Steelcase designer: "Ooh, that line is justh sthooo sthensual." He was describing a prototype back frame for the $3000 Aeron chair they came out with recently. "Ok, now I want you to nudge this line in here, sweep this curve in a more appealing fashion, touch this corner a "Skouch" (sp?), and excite this area more. I want this to have a jewelry-type quality to the finish. This product needs to surprise and delight our customers" All this coming from designers in the automotive industry? Where'd all the cool gearhead designers go?

How many designers does it take to change a lightbulb? None, they get a modeller to do it.

How many modellers does it take to change a lightbulb? One. We do it ourselves.

Sound familiar Mitch?

Hell yeah...

And what exactly IS a 'skooch'? Put some calipers, or at least a steel ruler on the damn thing and give me a frame of reference!

And when I say pick a color of commonly used laminate for a cabinet, don't choose linoleum! Just because they both begin with 'L' doesn't mean they're interchangable!

So any further word on Steve Bisley being involved? How close have he and Mel Gibson kept in touch? Weren't they roommates at one time?

Speed.....what is the core meaning of the word? answer the question and I think that you all will understand why we frequent this site with such passion...Question is who actually has a replica 200+MPH INTERCEPTOR that they built from the ground-up by themselves and who are the dreamers?...Hmmmm??!!

So now we know some of Humungous' background. He was a line worker at the Brooklands Ford plant building XB's from the ground up, until an industrial hot coffee accident sidelined him for a month. During that time, the apocalypse occurred, and he escaped with only the clothes on his back. Seeing as he was sitting around the house in his underwear, watching Skippy reruns and drinking XXXX, that wasn't much.

Fast forward to the wastelands, where, as a former shop steward, he naturally rose to a leadership position in a corrupt organization. Having appropriated a hockey mask and some sound equipment from the looted remains of the Quiet Riot Comeback Tour Part IX convoy, he now roams the outback with his rag tag band of vermin from all walks of life. Ex-overpriced plumbers, drug-addled roadies, ex-part time convenience store security guards and DMV clerks form the backbone of his scavenging army. The lawyers were purged early on, as even the vermin have standards, but the hairdressers were allowed to remain, as they had skills.

Much of the above is conjecture, based upon the Weekly World's exclusive interview with Humungous, and reading between the lines of his posts. One thing is certain, somebody has a Falcon.

What new revelations will burst on the scene? Stay tuned...
