When people ask you what you do for a living at a family reunion or a cocktail party or during court proceedings, they want your description to be concise and interesting! As practice for the constant social interaction to which they're accustomed, members of the SA Forums started describing their workdays in seven words or less. For example, I might say something like "Compiles jokes and Photoshops other people made," or "Puts up with Shmorky the human cartoon." It's like the "Drunken Memories" Goldmine, except this time the Goons prove they work as hard as they play!

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
