It was a joke. I suffer from avascular necrosis in my right hip, a fact to which I alluded in an earlier reply in this very thread: I guess I had assumed that people would've read that previous post ... or at least given me the benefit of the doubt and asked first if I were serious. C'mon Uncle G, you know I was just pulling your leg. I would've thought the marca registrada would've given away the sarcasm that was actually pointed at those incomprehending guys, not to mention my previous post? Anyway, sorry I tendered offense with what is apparently my overly-dry sense of humor.
