Tiger Woods, hotties and Obama, RC buffs?

I suppose this could get Curtis in trouble. Nonetheless, I find it really funny!

There was a reason why the guy was booted from here... something about stability in flight or something.

Below is the promotional email that went along with the above link:
I always said all Curtis can do is talk. That's why he sends out these emails that go on and on about nothing.

Begin email:

THIS JUST IN:

Easytiger Models Endorses Tiger Woods!

We read on the internets that a certain hobby company had been visited by
Juan Pablo Montoya, a race car driver, and now we see that that company
"Officially Endorses" Juan Pablo Montoya...
Well...that's greasy kid stuff.
EASYTIGER MODELS OFFICIALLY ENDORSES TIGER WOODS.

That's right. The greatest athlete who has ever lived. And WE ENDORSE HIM.
Completely. Fully. Even though others have turned their backs on him as of
late. We aren't like that. We have CHARACTER. We are not like Accenture,
aka Anderson Consulting, who dropped him like a hot potato attached to a
greased pig the moment a little negative press came out. Hell, they
actually collected every piece of Tiger Woods memorabilia, like Tiger Woods
pencil holders and Tiger Woods posters, from their entire corporate offices,
and had them all destroyed. They purged any mention of The Tiger from their
website, too. Too sad. We aren't like that. We stick with our friends,
through thick and thin, through good times and bad.
Okay, so Tiger got busted with a little somethin-somethin on the side.
Well, actually, a LOT of somethin-somethin on the side. Boatloads. Scads
of boo-tay. Like, more than the average man deserves. We beleive it is
close to 200 girls, as of last count. We are perhaps a little bit jealous.
But we are not angry with him. After all, a man is just a man. And when
that man has billions of dollars and is a major celebrity, well, what
happens is these awful wimmen lead him astray, attempting to sap his vital
bodily fluids. We suspect that many of these women were actually sent by
rival golfers like Arnold Palmer or Chi Chi Rodriguez, in order to sap his
vital bodily fluids so that they might stand a lightly-packed snowball's
chance in hell of winning against the great Tiger. So, it's really all not
his fault. And I expect every last man-jack of you fellows to stick by this
story, particularly to your wives, since there but for the Grace Of God and
a few indiscreet text messages go you and I. Heck, I bet Mother Theresa and
Ghandi both had a little something on the side. Not such a big deal. Jeez,
people tend to pigeonhole you...you have a few hundred mistresses and people
start calling you a "womanizer". You have ONE lousy cannibalism conviction
and people start pigeonholing you as some sort of "BAD PERSON" and they
won't call you for babysitting jobs anymore. Whatever. People can be so
judgemental. We're cutting Tiger some slack here, as should you.

At least Tiger's doghouse is much, much nicer than yours. His has a sunken
living room and a minibar. His dog drinks vermouth, mostly, as we
understand it.

We have prepared a page on our website, with a ton of officially-endorsed by
Easytiger Tiger Woods pictures and memorabilia. Check it out here:
http://easytigermodels.com/index.php...index&cPath=30

We still have an epic, monumental, Carrera-style gynormous sale going on,
too, if you are still interested in the world's best model airplanes, and
that can be found here:

http://easytigermodels.com/index.php?main_page=specials

So...Tiger endorses Tiger. The greatest golfer and the greatest model
airplanes, they go together like fromunda cheese and garden slugs.


And there you have it,

ETM

Then about a week later I get the following nonsense.



Sad news, folks. We had to let Tiger Woods go. For moral purposes.
We were down in Myrtle Beach, playing a round of mini golf. Tiger was
losing, and we saw him move the ball with his foot so he could get a better
angle on shooting it through the clown's mouth. He thought we did not see,
he made like he was just adjusting his underwear and it was all some big
accident, but the fact is we saw it, he just bumped the ball away from the
wall about four inches.
Nobody likes a cheat. This is the kind of behavior that is ruining this
country these days. That and flouride, but that's another story.
Anyhooo...
We were listening to the radio the other day, while getting a tooth filled,
and the old Eighties song "99 Red Balloons" came on. By that chick Nina.
It was originally written in German, and the ballons were "toy balloons",
not "red balloons", but that's neither here nor there.
Well...you think the song is just about red balloons, but it's really about
airplanes. It's about an incident that really supposedly happened, where a
bunch of red balloons were released at a Rolling Stones concert, and as they
rose into the skies above Germany, their radar signature set off the NATO
air defense system and hundreds of jet fighters were scrambled to intercept
then. So the legend goes.
And THEREFORE...
We are selling jets for $99. For real. For one day only, and only stuff
that is in stock, we will not take backorders at this price. It's pretty
astonishing, we know, but what a hell of a way to kick off the new year.
Enjoy.

Yes, they are all plug and play with all electronics except for receiver and
battery. Yes, that IS a 70mm Mirage with retracts for that price. YES, that
IS a twin F-15 for that price.
Sale ends at midnight tonight, or until stock runs low, no exceptions!


All the best

You know how you meet some people and when you speak to them you feel kind of awkward?
Awkward in such a way that you feel sorry for them.
Awkward in such a way that you feel like the adult and the person you are speaking to is the child.

That is the way I feel toward Curtis when I read the text of his emails.

Curtis is clearly a first-class schmuck with issues.

I suspect he will be receiving a cease and desist from ETW pretty soon.
