Picture of Caption Contest: What's Eric so happy about? UPDATED
all i want to know is, does eric really shave all the sides of his head to where he only has hair on top?
No, I do. (It's a bit hard to shave bits of your own head evenly.)

Neither, did I. Neither, did I.

*Hopes as hard as i can*

IT'S NOT WORKING!!!!!!!!!!
stupid images bug....
Eric upon learning that Instructables qualifies as a bank under the bailout.
If we don't make our traffic numbers for the year, I'm demanding some sort of bailout. It's the new capitalism.
Hey, wait, don't us iblers get some of that?
No, it's the last desperate gasp of the "old" (okay, just the last eight years') capitalism. Get in while you can :-)

how much more traffic do you need?
Do you have access to a otnet or something? lol
nah, just lots of people I can intimidate...

Thanks for putting this little contest on! That tape measure looks like a Komelon SS Gripper. I bought one as a gift a while back and it seemed like a nice one.
That Tape measure looks like the ones with my dad's work logo on it.
Steal one from your dad and give it to me. =D
uhh, no?
Awwww...why not. D=
Because i said so.
