    I don't have the discipline to become a bulked-up Schwarzenegger or a high-flying Jackie Chan. Maybe something like a Bruce Willis.. or a Harrison Ford.

    Anyone looking for an action hero? I would be willing to do some of my own stunts. I think I would be pretty good at running from an exploding building or diving and rolling to dodge machine gun fire... maybe even climbing on a run-away train.

    Send me an email if interested.

    Maybe you could be the "AMAZING SPINNING HEAD GUY" or perhaps "CAPTAIN TWISTER"
    Could you scare the neighbors dog for me? He keeps crapping in my yard. Sounds like a job for "CAPTAIN TWISTER"!!!!!

    What are your qualifications?
    Do you have any super powers?
    Can you fly around the Earth and reverse time like Superman did to save Lois Lane? If you can, I need someone to help me fix a mistake on my employer's tax paperwork so that I DON'T OWE $1500 in TAXES THIS YEAR!!
    All qualified applicants are encouraged to contact me directly. [​IMG]

    I'm planning on having a hallway by my apartment filled with a steadily moving explosion. Are you available Tuesday?

    Are those blue dots swirling around your head part of your costume? Do you have a cape, cod piece or cochlear implants?

    I'm looking for more of an in-action hero. Someone to wear brightly colored spandex, and generally stand around, drinking coffee, and chatting with the receptionist. Someone to get in the way of the bothersome, competent action heroes.

    This would help out next Thursday, when I take over the world.

    Let me know if you're available.

    Dave, I have to confess that I play a sort of Russian roulette with your rotating-head signature. I try to hit my "stop" button at the exact moment that you are staring directly at me. When it happens, which is not often, the blood freezes in my veins.

    Bob, thanks for that [​IMG]
    I've often wanted to be a movie star as well, though not an action star. Maybe a lead in a steamy, seductive love triangle story costarring Angelina Jolie and Monica Bellucci. Anyone want to make that film with the three of us? Just gotta convince the other 2, I'll be on board for sure...

    Well, according to the previous link, whenever they go into production on The Superlative Yak Man or The Unlucky Forgotten Manhunter, I'll be so money.

    You want to star in an action movie? That's a little too hard I think.

    Try to taunt a radioactive spider into biting you, that's easier.

    I'm here to help...
