Ach das war noch längst nicht alles... :D

Wenn es dann drum geht wie man die Busse-Jünger nennt, gibt's nnoch mehr Lesestoff:


The simlpest explanation of what constitutes an "INFI HOG" is simple. An "INFI HOG" is some one who has acquired any number of Busse Combat Knives, and has an overwhelming and unchecked desire to obtain more. However there are degrees of "HOGdom". They are as follows
PIGLET - A Piglet is some one who has one or two Busses ans says "I must have some more". A piglet usaully has the start of a modest collection and is building it slowly and in moderation.

PIG - A Pig is someone who has a modest collection, and is expanding their collection as rapidly as time and finances allow and attempts to do so with some degree of moderation.

HOG - A Hog is some one who has a medium to large collection who is attempting to enlarge his collection as fast as possible. The mark of a true HOG is not the size of their collection, although it is invariably large, but by the tactics they use in acquiring INFI. A true INFI Hog will use whatever means needed to increase their trove including decieving their significant other and fellow Busse enthusiasts. The resort to such ploys as, having packages delivered to work instead of home, claiming they have had a new knife in their collection for years (to fool the wife/husband), stalking the forums night and day, as well as surfing the net for possible sources of their beloved INFI. Some HOGS go to great lengths to hide their "INFI Wealth" from others, while some HOGS show off constanly.

MEGA HOG - the Mega Hog or Uber Swine is one of the most prominent and some time reviled "HOGS" of all. The Mega Hog has a vast trove of INFI and will stop at nothing to acquire more. Mega Hogs often buy multiple copies of the same model therfor depriving their INFI Bretheren of pleasure. Some of the traits of the Mega HOG are, recieving obsenely large packeges of INFI from Wauseon, attempting to bribe Blade Babe, having hoards of INFI requiring multiple rooms or safes to store, and enlisting family members to circumvent INFI ordering restrictions.

Sasquatch HOG The Sasquatch HOGs are shadowy and elusive creatures who are posessed of vast and uncharted hoards of INFI who move among us unseen and unheard. To date none of these creatures have been sighted in the wild except by the man himself.

HOG Farmer The HOG Farmer or "Farmer Jerry", as he thinks of himself, is Jerry Busse the provider of all INFI Goodness, the one who feeds us all. He is the man with the key to the "INFI Mine", a top secret facility where Busse Cobat Knives are manufactured.

HOGETTE - HOGette is a term used to describe the creatures at the top of the "INFI HOG" food chain. The HOGettes are the lovely ladies who keep the INFI flowing to us and make sure our orders make it to us. Headed by Blade Babe and Shaggi, the HOGettes watch out for Jerry and keep the INFI Mine running smoothly. Without the HOGettes nonw of would be able to wallow in the INFI.

Now that what constitued an "INFI HOG" has been clarified, here are some signs that you may be an "INFI HOG"

  • When you move the first change of address you file is with the Busse mail guy.
  • You have ever considered asking Jerry to make you some BBQ implements out of INFI.
  • You decide the cost of your next Busse purchase not by how much it costs, but by how many things you are going to have to buy for your significant other to make up for it.
  • You have ever used a Busse to cut some thing at the dinner table (extra points for usage in a resteraunt)
  • You refer to your mother in law as "The battle Mistress"
  • You have ever lost sleep trying to come up with entries for a Busse naming contest.
  • Your name your dog INFI.
  • You have the number to the Busse Shop on speed dial.
  • Your wall paper on your computer is a picture of a Busse and you use the Busse screen saver. Now if you could only get a email address
  • Even though he is not allowed to touch them, your preschool son knows the names of all your Busse knives.
  • You fellow forumites refer to you by a variation of your forum name having to do with HOG, i.e. "Onewhooinks", "Idahooinker", "Eric Porkerson", "Proporker", etc.

Der neue Partnershop

Be the kind of man that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says "Oh Crap, He's up!" Brother, life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forgive the ones who don't just because you can. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Take a few minutes to think before you act when you're mad. Forgive quickly. God never said life would be easy, He just promised it would be worth it.
