Aldie and Derk don't go to Essen, but we are meant to think they do. Their imposters walk side by side. Aldie and Derk always walk single file to hide their numbers.

I heard they can never take the same plane together.


But seriously, yes, it would be nice to say hi.

Last time I met Aldie and Derk, I think it went something like;

"Seinfeld.....Newman!"

They are easy to find. Just look for loud Americans* next to the Rio Grande stand**.

* Yes, I know that is an oxymoron, but these two are really loud and sweary.

** Actually, that'll be Greg Schloesser. Look for the two not as loud and sweary*** as Greg.

*** No, that's Dale Yu. You want loud and sweary Americans that are louder than Dale and quieter than Greg****.

**** No, that's Randy Shipp. Oh find them yourself!

Wait a minute... I'm definitely louder than Aldie.
I'm not louder than Derk, but I might swear more than him.

Oh please, Dale. If this conversation was private, I would cast you into a verbal lava pit.

I will be at Essen, even on the Friday which you speak. I am bald and loud, and I will have a microphone sticking out of my backpack. I'll just be that happy to meet'cha!

Tell me when I gotta be somewhere, I'll be.

You'll recognize them quickly.

Aldie is almost 7-feet tall and rail thin. His red eyes gaze hungrily; consuming all they see, and they see all. A foul ichor oozes from his seven mouths, which open to reveal the twisted Seas of Qjarama, where foul fish swim and ur-ravens croak the song that ends the world.

Derk will be in a blue sweatshirt.

I'm Spartacus, and so's my wife!

I think you'll need to narrow it down alot more than that you know. Perhaps if you wore a black heavy metal t-shirt hung every key you possess from your Harley-D belt, fixed your glasses with parcel tape and cultivated a wispy half hearted beard?
