    OMG! This just came in from the BBC Newsworld radio:

    "We have just received word that following Tropical Storm Baloubet, undercover investigative reporter Moesha and his photojournalist Jeb have been caught in a scandal that has the possibility of rocking the quiet town of Aculpulcopoco to its very core! It seems that the dynamic duo were there to originally uncover the ring of bandits exporting over-size-undergarments to male equestrians that were making the wearers feel inadequate because of their over-large size. However, while on the trail of VT Rider and her cohorts LOUISE and Duffy, it seems that the two stumbled upon one Senor Sea Urchin, Esq., a conniving gangster known for his terrible tenacity and the bad company he keeps (the exploits of Senorita Colin-Miranda are legendary). It was well know that Senor Urchin dealt in finding hunter/jumpers for the American market and usually at a huge profit to himself. Now, as we all know journalists don?t make a lot of money, so when during the big storm Jeb witnessed this mule jumping a 5 foot fence with ease, the lightbulb went off! And so began the fraud scam involving selling mules as 3 ft A/O hunters for 6 figures. The new "Bigearbloods" were a huge success- no matter that Senor Urchin had ordered the hit on poor VA Trainer when she tried to spill the beans, or that Brenna, YngAmateur and Pewter (all faithful grooms) had all disappeared as well. It didn't matter - they were rich!! No one would ever find out.

    Or so they thought until the intrepid brother/sister team of Jair and Heidi Hardy and their friend Robby Drew, stumbled innocently upon the whole mess while vacationing on the beach.

    Agents AHC and MAZ from the FEI (Foreign Equestrian Investigations) are on the scene now. We are awaiting their first reports any moment."

    And just look at his form over that huge jump!!!! And I'll just bet his distance was perfect too! I know some of you might think he looked like he might have gotten there a bit deep, but for that height - don't think so. Think it had to have been just perfect! Geesh...sigh...Something we can all dream of aspiring to...

    Well, Duffy... I know you are under "Mr. Accurate's" spell... but some of us KNOW about that business card that reads "Sea Urchin, Chiparooni" [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    OMG, JustBay, I am howling!!! But I'm really annoyed with you - you've given away my secret of the new red Edgewood bridle - I was hoping to make a big splash with it at WEF - now everyone will have them. And DMK, it's Mr. Chips Ahoy to you, thank you very much!

    OMG!!!!! Look at how ballsy SU is not only is that jump huge but notice that the standards have no cups ,it won't come down ! I propose that we twist Snowbird's arm and ask her to start ammending the AHSA so that there is a new breed specific division!
    BIGEARBLOOD JUMPERS:Entrants to be papered BIGEARBLOODS ,in addition ears of said entrant must be able to hold at least one cool one in each ear ,Size of ear to be inspected by steward before entrant may enter the ring.Course to consist of eight obstacles 4 foot in height,one combination and two changes of direction are required.
    NOw as to Mr SU's attire or lack there of....Did anyone notice the SU claim to faim bareb... and what a b...it is ooohhh babaaaby!
