There goes my dream of watching you hop in a Porsche, yell out "GOTCHA SUCKERS" and drive into the distance, leaving everyone behind wondering what's going on.
Aw man don't feel like you have to justify some (obviously not serious) silliness from almost four years ago. If people can't see it was a joke, it's pretty sad :) People need to stop feeding the mass hysteria out of boredom...

I was seeing it widely reported and misunderstood.
It's surreal you have to do damage control even on things like that... Soon you'll be able to relax with a cocktail (with little umbrella) and enjoy not having to worry (too much) anymore.
I'd imagine most of us were teasing. I certainly was... :-p
PHOOEY! I was looking forward to a photo of you giving Sherm a ride in a Porsche! Ok, I guess I can deal with you not getting a Porsche, but I hope Dina still gets her Puppy. And what are you buying Frank? :D
People were actually believing that?
But I bet you still need the backrub and the sleep.
On a somewhat related note, you should totally eBay your house. The eFame factor could greatly inflate the selling price. ;)
Yeah, he should do it and get the profit to buy a Porsche! ;)
you should buy a porsche. i would.
You should ebay the concept of you getting a porsche for selling livejournal. You might be able to buy a Subaru off the proceeds.
What kind of car DID you get?

I would take an Audi over a Porsche most days anyways. Porsches are for 60 year old men who want to meet 25 year old women.
clearly youve never actually *driven* a porsche have you-
or- you dont like driving and likely enjoy automatic transmissions? :)
and yes- that's exactly what i plan on doing when im 60 :P
It's worth noting that the high-finisher Porsche in the last One Lap didn't carry any tools on the trip, snottily proclaimed, "We don't need tools, it's a Porsche," and were right.
The upside of an Audi in that situation is that the front half of the model doesn't need to be hanging out a window.

Oh come on! I need more details than just an audi...I love audis!
Oh quit lying. -grins- I know that Audi is just a cover up for the James Bond getaway car you bought yourself just in case this merger ended up with riots and complete anarchy in the blogging world....
Come on......admit it!
I can't wait til this all blows over, and users start complaining about normal, angsty things.
oh but that was such a funny post!
anyways... it's a good thing you didn't by a porsche -- i hear they don't like hills... er go they wouldn't like SF. ;)
Wow. People would actually go through the trouble to think that way?
Buy a hot air balloon. Or an Aquada
. Or both and tie them together.

That was a joke. Wow. I am soooo gullible.
Sarcasm aside, I'm surprised people still see the Porsche as a significant (high) status symbol.
