Napoleon Dynamite called me!

The heading may be a little deceptive, but this guy sure sounds like a wanna be!

I know you read my SaddleSore ride report, so you know my motorcycle was kaput. So after mulling it over for a few days, I decided that I wouldn't have the time to fix it this year. And even if I did get it fixed, I wanted to get rid of the bike for a bigger one. So I thought, since it's currently high season, and since the bike still had a valid safety certificate, now is the time to sell!

Here's the ad I ran in the local Bargain Hunter paper.

1984 Kawasaki GPZ550, Safetied until July 8, 2006 4 to 1 Hi Perf. Exhaust, K&N Intake, Spare parts Incl. Needs motor repair, but does run. Have spare motor for parts. No time to fix. Call after 5pm

My ad is very straight up and fair. The bike needs repair and does run (I was driving it.) I had a spare motor to give along with the bike to re-build the old motor. What was broken.. I didn't know at the time. (I found out after I sold the bike though)

Anyway.. So that's my ad. The bike sold on the first day too, I may add. Today I checked my voicemail on my cellphone. I don't know when this message was left as I had a loaner cellphone while mine was away on warranty repair, and the loaner phone was kind of unreliable.

I listened to my voicemail and was astounded as the message was from such a monotone person, he sounded like Napoleon Dynamite. Then to boot, what he said reaffirmed that and made me laugh hysterically. So for your listening pleasure... Here's the voicemail from Mr. Dynamite.

You know, I don't think it's nice of you to be making fun of someone like that. What if he's a retard? I'll bet you'd feel bad then wouldn't you?
