But they make a valid point.

I thought that was great!!!

But they did take their lives in their hands, with all the road rage folks around. I know that I would likely have been one of the PO'd folks had I been behind them, lol.

"I'm just glad no one got hurt" what about that car that got clipped on the side of the road when that guy passed on the shoulder? EDIT: I guess no one was in it.

Honestly some people just have way too much time on their hands. Thay could have been a little more cordinated too.

maybe I just found it annoying to watch because all I could think about was how much I would like to beat the ever loving crap out of that Andy guy for looking and sounding like someone I know and despise.

And the guy pretending to be on the cell phone so people couldn't be "Too mad" at him? People driving retarded while on the phone only make me madder.Jackass!!! That'* an offense in alot of places now. If they wanted to keep their little opperation on the up and up then that could have got them ticketed, that is if they already couldn't be ticketed for travelling in a passing lane.
