    "Turn that goddamn stereo down , Does your Momma know you're playing with insurgents, you are grounded forever young man , Kids today , no goddamn respect , in my day etc etc etc" lol :D

    Yeah , get more old geezers over there.
  6. And the Spams are 'dry' out there, so he won't be able to get his hands on his usual fix of Sanatogen :D

  14. All he has to do is dig his Brown Bess out of the Hay-loft, even though it was last fired in the War against King George.. :D
  15. Those two scoundrels accuse each other of wanting to bring back the draft.

    And they are both quite correct; each of them does.
