Uke's yarn-spinning machine is at full tilt; as he touches on the antics of teammates, managers, coaches, front office, broadcast partners, and most of all HIMSELF. Great stuff! Even the photo section is funny. This man needs to write more books.
Product(s) arrived in a timely fashion in the advertised condition. I would do business with the seller again.
I, Top Reviewer Ranking: 12,966,132 , have spoken. There. How's that? Now let go of my sleeve, you vile beancounter. (Not you, darling - I was referring to the Amazon slave driver who insists on words and not just stars and a certain number of them at that and only then specific ones and we have to stand up straight and not answer with our mouths full and we hate them and hope they trip and fall down the stairs at their earliest opportunity, don't we? Yes.)
learn what "bull pen" really ment. and learn the ropes of practical joking from both sides. to me practical
joking is okay if the joker pays for damages [they don't practical jokers are distrutive and cheap.]
most of the time a practical joke is mean and not at all funny. but this but is funny well worth it.
