2005 Chase Funnies

I know all who have chased should have some chase funnies from the 2005 chase season so I have compiled a little clip of 6/4/05 post chase. I will likely add more because god knows with the group I chase with we make sure there is never a dual moment.

Here is Chad and Shane doing it in the Love Shack.

Will add more later...

For anyone who has any stories, pics, or video of funny chase stuff (not necessarily from 2005) I’m sure everyone would love to see them. I know I would.

Thanks for that Mick - I owe you one.

Let this be an example of why not to drink those "Energy" drinks like No Fear and Monster. They're the only thing that keeps me alert on the drives home, but then I end up grating my teeth and staring at the ceiling unitl 4am.
 
:lol: That's pretty funny, Shane.. :lol: Fortunately most of my "better" moments were not in the many wandering viewfinders this season! :lol:
 
Hahaha....oh good times. Maybe I should invest in some of those drinks...I always find myself dead quiet on the drive back...fallin asleep.
 
You mean someone other than my home station still plays "Loveshack"? I could swear you guys were in the Ponca area! :)

We were close to Ponca City on I35. LOL
 
I'll bet you were listening to 104.7 KIXR then! There aren't many who play the "Loveshack" in this area. Was there an Old guy doing the weather or a lady with someone watching and attempting to explain the radar he was watching?

You probably didn't hear me very much as I was over in Osage County doing some damage assesment in the McChord area.
 
Blast from the past.

Ok I just thought of a somewhat funny story.

It was the weekend of June 11th & 12th. I met up with Chad and Shane at Shane's place before the chase on 6/11/05. Well Chad had brought two very nice ladies over as well because they really wanted to go chasing. Well Chad, Shane, Jo, and myself were all picking on each other as we always do when we get around each other. No surprise. No bid deal.

Well one of the ladies asked me why I didn't have long hair like Shane and Chad. Chad brakes in before I could respond to her and says "Debbie (I think that was her name) there is something you should know.†Pause/silence “Mickey is gay". Now natural, I respond by saying that I was not (and I really am not ok) and everyone has his and her laughs at my expense. Jokes are jokes and they come a dim a dozen in this pack four so I blew (not literally) it off.

We leave and do what we do best, chase. Well that night as we started to settle into your hotel room Chad comes in chuckling. I said “What’s so funny?†Chad responds while his little quite chuckle turns into a loud laugh “Dude, Talisa just asked me if you where really gay†And of course Shane had to jump in on it also. I was like, man you did tell her that I’m not. RIGHT?

I mean here we have been chasing for the whole day and these to ladies think I am gay. Talk about a jolt to the manly ego. I was like; damn do I really look or act freak’n gay. Of course those two punks couldn’t quite laughing.

The sad thing is the younger lady was very cute and here she thought for the past 12 hours that I am gay. Not that that really matters because I am happily married, but it’s the fact that a little hotty actually thought I was gay. I mean it’s not like I was prancing around acting like a gay man.

In the end no one was gay and we all lived happily ever after.

So I made a fool of those two with the video above so I figured I would make an ass of myself also.

Even though the video doesn't show it that well, one of the funniest moments of 2005 for me was when I (accidentally) ran over Chad in his own car. That was classic.

Indeed, and if you really want to see that clip you can go here and get it. :wink: :oops:

More Funny Stuff

Having chased hurricanes and storms for many years, lots of funny expressions and incidences came up that I can remember nearly every chase by. I will share them here on this thread, feel free to laugh!

Chaser 2: "I'm the smallest, I will climb in through the trunk!"

Chaser 3: "OK, I will pop the lock for you!"

Note: All this is besides the fact that on just about every other chase, low pressure causes gas to be passed as well. So be careful before chasing a hurricane, avoid cheap beer from a gas station, and don't eat gas-forming foods (such as broccholi, corn, and don't eat stinking beans either)!

STINK-UP-YER-RIDE: "Man ... I am gonna pig out at that steakhouse! I want lots of beans, chili, corn ... A juicy steak, and some "steel reserve" (cheap beer) from Texas, to wash it all down..."
