What do you call a religion that worships fish? Ichtheology?

I guess if you consider scientific study a religion, then sure whatever floats your boat.

It was a play on words; an intentional misspelling. The scientific study of fish is ichthyology. Man, I hate it when I have to explain a joke. It takes all the funny out of it.

I love the fact that the orginal poster has claimed us to be "morons" and would not be coming back to read any more suggestions.

I think everyone had decent, constructive suggestions but who am I to think I am NOT a moron! Anyway the best suggestion is probably to get a different car with better ground clearance.

Problem solved forever. Based on what she said, the problem can be solved but only temporarily with concrete patching or asphalt.

So who is the moron? Don't they say the definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over but expecting a different result!!!

Looks cool, doesn't it? We are about to buy a house with a driveway we can't get into without scraping. Thought we were going to have to ask the builder to change the driveway, until we found this. Haven't tried it yet, but it's on its way and it looks promising. Will let you know how it goes!
