"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

Okay. Who the hell is this guy, and how do you get from Yogi Bear/BooBoo/Hanna Barbera/Pickanick Baskets to him, and from him to a fork in the road?

Roland, let us know if you need help getting your foot out of your mouth. :haha:

Why on earth would he need to do that? I wouldn't expect you to recognise the Liverpool FC squad from the 1980s and baseball is a much more obscure sport than football :idiot:

Cause 1/2 the fun of this thread is guessing at the associations, and and any internet search would tell you who Yogi Bear was named after =D If he'd asked politely like "I give up, what's the baseball player have to do with the cartoon bear" then nobody would blink, but he went with the aggressive and I kept tone =D

I hate sports, and always have done, as they do absolutely nothing for me. I barely know who a football (soccer) team is from any era, let alone baseball, a sport I get all my knowledge of from films. I was being completely lazy, and could not be bothered to look it up on Yogi Bear's Wiki page, although looking at it now, it's only one sentence (ok, so i'm ignoring other websites, and a search of "Yogi Bear Baseball" gives you the answer without even trying). Even then, I couldn't be sure it wasn't a reference to any of the other items in the picture, although I would have started from Yogi and gone on from there. Not that I would have needed to.
:moon: :haha:

Now all I need to do is work out what he has to do with forks, lol (yes, i've looked it up, and it's one of his quotes, but i'm having fun!). :haha:

Oh, and Roland: you could always right-click the picture, check the properties or view image option, and see what the file is named.
