    The telepathic meeting of the hogs has taken place:

    BrianN's wife has been admitted to the illustrious club of pellet pigs having demonstrated true piggishness aka putting up with BrianN.

    She can add the following to her signature line:

    "Proud member of the Pellet Pig Club" OINK OINK!
    "You pellet pigs should be ashaimed of yourselves"-eernest4-Grand Poobah-Pellet Pig Club!

    You on the other hand need to do 100 hours of community service to atone for not arranging assistance for your wonderful wife.

    I will have to print this out, frame it and hang it near the stove as she is not a member on here (yet)
    I agree, I am not a good person, and I will go do my 100 hours as soon as I get back home. I was hoping to have time to arrange to have some one do it, but, she took it upon herself to have it all done before I had a chance. She was afraid it was going to get moist and ruined.
    Oh, and yes, she is a good woman. Thank you.

    Am I able to be a Pellet Pig? I posted before a thread saying I purchased 6 Ton and already had 1 1/2 ton of pellets I hauled myself in my little Mitsubishi Eclipse. I currently have 4 1/2 tons in my basement since I gave 3 tons of my pellets to my parents for the winter. Jtakeman and Salty gave me there votes already in that thread. I believe I meet requirements. Only thing I don't have is a truck. I have the Quadrafire Classic Bay 1200 stove, 4 1/2 tons of pellets and already have them in my basement stacked before the frost. Thanks.

    Here's my previous thread: http://www.hearth.com/talk/threads/just-picked-up-6-ton-of-pellets.90163/

    Well you have to wait for the telepathic meeting to occur, we have your application. Is there anything you wish to add that would help us make up our demented minds?

    Not too much really. I wanna thank you for considering me and the chance to become a pellet pig. Just keep in mind while voting how many trips I would have had to take in my car to haul another 6 tons on top of the 1 1/2 I previously hauled myself home 35 mins each way. Like I mentioned in my previous thread, if I had a truck I would have lugged it all home and used the $65 delivery fee for more pellets. On another note, I wanted to say how much I really enjoy this forum and all the help and great feedback I have gotten whether it be from repairs to wood pellet reviews. Definitely a thank you to DexterDay and Yourself for helping me last year with my Quadrafire issue I had which I was able to fix with everyone's help. This site is awesome and I always recommend it to everyone I come across that has a pellet stove.

    Well, you got my vote. That many pellets with an Eclipse! ! Holy $#!£…

    The Classic Bay is a great stove and should serve you for years to come.

    Dexter the honors are yours the earlier meeting was a joke. I think some of the hogs need their grog ration cut.

    ETA: Every once in a while some of the hogs get to acting like little piggies and keep the meeting in turmoil.

    Gentlemen, I'd like to be considered for admittance at you're next meeting... Two pellet stoves (see sig) with 5 tons currently in storage. All hauled in a trailer behind my Dodge Dakota. Thank you for your consideration! Eric

    Well let's see if your application is complete, I see the tonnage (so you can at least find pellets), trying to ruin a Dodge (that probably should count for some kind of cluster to add to your star), and two pellet eaters (that rates a star of some kind).


    Now on to the interview (be careful there are trick questions):

    If you were faced with no heat or having to buy and burn a bad pellet what would you do?
    How many traps do you set when the goal is to protect your stash from OMV?
    What color is the van the marauding Oinkers use when they go on their midnight requisitions?
    What do you recommend to help smoke show with his bad case of hemorrhoids?

    Well folks Eric provided answers in a PM to me, here is what he said:

    Sorry, meant to get at this yesterday, but my two year old had other ideas...

    1. My first inclination is no heat, but, knowing my wife would have a cow, I'll say either alternative is better than buying oil.
    2. There aren't enough traps in existance. But, let's hope the howitzer I'm getting delivered will be a deterrent!
    3. I always thought they used a truck and trailer. Where they gonna fit all those pellets in a van?
    4. Laser cream. My wife, whom is not a big woman, used it after she shot out a 9#6oz girl and 10# 11.5 oz boy, and it seemed to do the trick!

    I once again thank you for your consideration. Did I mention my Dakota is a V-6, and before I got the trailer I hauled a ton at a time in the back? Hope that counts for something!

    Eric

    I hereby nominate Eric for membership in the Pellet Pig Club any second, etc ....

    A telepathic meeting has been called for 9:00 PM Eastern.
