Let's see, for those of you keeping score at home, that's:

2 crap jokes

2 "squeezing out" or straining jokes

and several  other defecation references, and we're still on the first page.

 ;D

I like it.  Way to go Steve.  ;D

Dana, You're killing me too.

I think we should deduct points for splatter marks,clingons, streaks, and any other disturbing discolorations on the johnstone heads. LOL  ;)

  Oh this is good,just got home and can't quit laughing. I'm fairly sure that there is still some royal porcelin out in my pile of crap  :D behind the play house  ;D  Guess I'll have to go dig through everything to see what I can find. Hopefully the snow hasn't melted into a solid sheet of ice. I don't think I want to do any ice fishing out there. :D  Do we get deducted for inclusions in our work ??? What about pitting and staining ???
  Do we need to provide proof of authenticity of origin and a history of probable use. ???

Very cool MBG.
 I am gonna try and push one out  tomorrow. Hopefully it is somewhat as elegant as yours.

I got one roughly bifaced out, figured I'd take pics before I break it  :) I haven't decided yet whether to break it while fluting it into a Clovis, or break it while  notching it into a dovetail, or break it some other creative way.  ;D

OK, here's the finished product. I decided to make it into a Dalton, one of my favorite types. The johnstone kinda looks like the Burlington chert that most of those Sloan daltons were made from, but it's a heckuva lot tougher. I'd forgotten how much fun it is to try to run long pressure flakes on that stuff-I've now got a big blister on my Ishi finger.  :) It's a little shy of 6" long x about 1 1/4" wide. A little thick, but not bad for the point type and this crappy material-I think it would do the deed on a longhorned bison or a stray mastadon. Sorry for the crappy pics, hard to get flake scars to show on a white point.
