    Question Huh?

    Umm...huh? What was Disrespectful? What appeared to be a Joke?

    Obviously you've never heard of the Fraternal Order of Leatherheads Society. (FOOLS) From the FOOLS International Website they are listed as an affiliate member.

    Thumbs up FOOLS International

    SpOok...

    Hope you checked out FOOLS INTERNATIONAL

    The beauty of the organization is that you don't necessarily have to wear a leather lid to belong....you just have to believe in the principles of the Order....which we all should learn to live by.

    Muck da Futts!!!!!!!!!!

    Default Give him a break

    Give us mid-west guys a break, fellas. I had never heard of FOOLS either prior to seeing it here on the forums. spoOk's OK. From what I've seen and heard, he ain't no mutt.

    I don't remember the first time I saw it referenced, but I ws ready to go to war. It ******ed me off until I found out what it was. What can I say, I've lived a sheltered life.

    Lightbulb I was skeptical also

    I was a bit leary also. But I contacted them and conversed with them via email several times. It is just a volunteer fire department trying to raise some money. I am convinced they are legit.

    They are sending me chances and the drawing will be held July 4.

    I figured I may as well add a 5th leather helmet to my collection. I have one that dates back to 1971.

    Thumbs up Legit

    Like Stan said, these guys are legit. I know a guy there and they're a good bunch. Got me six tix on the way. I'm a little behind Stan, I'm shooting for #4 in my collection.

    I wasn't knocking you Ohio Brothers or referring to Spo0k as a mutt. I figured he was a little unaware of the Fraternal Order of Leatherheads Society. Just attempting to enlighten him on the FOOLS. Leather Forever!

    No offense taken, my leather lidded brother. Someone else had said that it reminded him about the whole FTM part. Alas, I too was once naieve, and was unaware of what FOOLS actually was. I have since become enlightened. I just wanted to make sure that an innocent brother wasn't splattered in the ensuing exchange, and someone got the wrong idea about him, all because of an innocent question.

    Yeah just take 95 into DC and you will see a large Dome where FOOLS reside. They are normally in session from 1130 until the bar closes. You can call them "Senator" or "Dude". Good luck!
