Coming straight from God’s press release to our monitors February 9, 2006
In an effort to be fair to other cultures and religions, we have decided that we will one up our European friends. Instead of circulating a cartoon of our inspirational and spiritual leader, we will even post a picture of him on the intraweb. We know that this may lead to rioters in the streets of Burlington tonight throwing empty bottles of Longtrail at all vehicles with Jersey tags, but it must be done.
Speaking of the Profit Jake, one of his disciples sent us the following to compliment our earlier post:
The 2006 Olympic Winter Games are right around the corner, and Burton is proud to support 18 snowboarders from nine different countries as they follow their dreams of a medal in Italy. Below are U.S. broadcast details so you can check out Olympic coverage on TV.
