There's a reason why William Clay Ford Sr. didn't get the reins of Ford Motor Company.  I believe he had a stint at Continental Motors before he would have been the heir apparent.  Instead of that they said, "Here go play with a football team".  Ford Jr. seemed okay at the helm but he realized he was in over his head.

My favorite part of that whole episode is right at the beginning of that set of clips when Frank says... "As I rained blows upon him..."  I love the attitude that there was no possible diplomatic solution to the problem of 2 grown men wanting the same thing but to beat the hell out of eachother.

Since you're a mod, perhaps you should set up an Airing of the Grievances post on the board.  The OP does right to remind us of the holiday, but in years past separate posts for the Airing of the Grievances (esp.) and Feats of Strength have served the board well.  It would be nice to have one virtual space in which to air our dirty laundry.

And I've got issues with a lot of you people.

Festivus is a reflective time.   A retrospective time to probe deeply into your soul in an attempt to solve the internal mysteries that continually vex our day-to-day lives.   With that in mind, I CHALLENGE ALL COMERS TO THE FEATS OF STRENGTH.   I will destroy you and your petty grievances.
