“ Stop me if you've heard this one before.
Three men got stranded on a deserted island:
a swimmer, a kayaker, and a biker.
Each with a full gear of his relevance.

The swimmer had a complete Speedo FastSkin set, including and limited to its cap, goggles, and of course the chlorine-resistant 1.3cm Powerflex briefs. The kayaker had his electric eMogi Aluki kayak, Sweet Protection Rocker helmet, and an adjustable Wilderness Systems Pungo Glass paddle. While the full patch member of Hells Angels had his '69 Harley-Davidson Road King Classic, Punk studs on a leather strap connected to a high-grade fiberglass reinforced polyester WW2 German helmet, and an original Berdoo vest.

What they didn't have was a clue how they got here in the first place and even less of an idea how to get off of this island. In order to feed themselves, they agreed to work in unison. The swimmer was diving to catch fish, the kayaker used his raft as a claptrap to capture a feathered creature that might or might not land on the shore, while the biker grabbed his shotgun and went on to roam the bushes and kill a boar... or something.

The first one to succeed in the task at hand was the swimmer who caught... and get this, a Golden fish, no less. You see, it is the widely popular belief that this is the kind of fish you want to catch whenever you find yourself stranded on a deserted island. The little freak-of-nature had 3 wishes at its disposal on that particular day, so each man got to wish for one thing, and one thing only. Anything really, except for a... material thing. Why? Well, it was a matter of principle for the verbal vertebrate weirdo.

By the luck of draw, and I mean the longest string in their collectively inspected underwear (well, to be fair, the biker was commando that day and his suggestion for the longest shlong contest lost in a democratic vote of 2:1), the swimmer won the challenge and with that the right to wish first. Who would've thought? As such, he asked for enough strength to swim to the closest shore. After his wish was granted, and without as much as saying goodbye to the others, the selfish bastard jumped into the Ocean and swam away, and he swam, and he swam some more until his strength gave out and he drowned. Why? Because he was swimming in the wrong direction of the closest shore. That's why.

Next in line was the kayaker. Learning from the mistake of his fellow strandee, he asked for... deerrrections! to the nearest shore. When it was graciously pointed out to him, the inconsiderate bastard mounted the cockpit of his floating device and boisterously waved at the biker: "Sayonara Sucker!". He did get far. No really, he did. He almost disappeared on the horizon when a big, bad shark came out of nowhere and eat him as a nutritious part of his precious eMogi Aluki.

However, the display of these spectacular failures did not phase the biker. No sir. Not even a little bit. First, he conjured a loogie from the depths of his lungs. Then, he spat it out with a loud relief of admiration, and finally, he smeared the slimy ball into a wet mass underneath his custom-made boots firmly demanding:
"F*ck you and your fishy furnishes, Sushi!
Build me a bridge from here to the nearest shore!"
Obviously amused by the twists in the outcome of his deliveries, Goldie replied:
"What part of... No.Material.Things... you greasy Mother f*cker Did.Not.Understand!?"

Seeing how "Nemo" might have been smarter than its smell would've led you to believe, the biker asked for a few hours in seclusion to contemplate a failsafe mandate out of his predicament. The "soon-to-be-released" folk creature gave him 10 minutes instead, because, for the lack of better understanding, he started to feel like fish out of water. Now, if the MC member have had more time to explore the consequences of his precept, or the circumstances were streamlined more to his liking, I'm sure he would've come up with a better plan to escape this nightmare he found himself in, but with the current pressure weighing upon his shoulders as the case stood, all he could muster up was:
"I would love to understand my "Old Lady"!"
No! Scratch that!
Make it ALL women in... General!"

The sea creature thought about it, then gave it some more thought, and finally asked the biker:
"You want two or three lanes with that bridge? "
                                                                        — One Funny Mofo

“ Phew!
He dodged the bullet there.
For a sec, I thought he'll ask for world peace and harmony. ”
                                                                                           — Yngve J. Chapleen
