SUBJECT: My Reputation With Houston-Area Strip Clubs

Apparently you idiots don't have enough work to do, because I have just been informed about a new rumor. According to one or more of you lying, mouth-breathing pinheads, I have been barred from all strip clubs in the Houston area. Let me state once and for all: this is not true. Yes, many strip clubs have my picture on the wall and my face is well known to many strip club proprietors and bouncers, but not because I am barred. There are many good reasons to be known to strip club proprietors, so don't instantly assume the worst. It makes you look stupid.

SUBJECT: FOR PETE'S SAKE

Which one of you shit-for-brains jackasses thought it would be a good idea to tell my new wife about my old wife??? Are you aware that I am trying to run this business and keep you all employed? Do you have any idea how difficult that is? If I can't do my job, you don't have a job. You have until the end of the day to smooth things over with both of my wives, or you're all fired.

SUBJECT: Let's Make '79 A Great Year!

I don't even know how this one got out, but a rumor is going around that I entered into a high-stakes bet with Burt Tallahassee from Royal Mariner. Well, I did. If Royal Mariner outperforms us, I have to murder one of you. If we outperform them, Burt has to murder one of his employees. I don't need to tell you how important it is we beat them.

If we don't succeed, you're all going to have blood on your hands. Work hard this year. Or else.

    The Fracking Fables of Groggery Gibbonman

    ‘Toad coin?’ wondered the traveler as he examined the pebble. It did not look all that different from any other pebble, and certainly nothing like a coin. ‘What manner of coin has no head or tail, and bears no seal or flag? Who backs this toad coin, the toad bank? The toad treasury!?’ The traveler laughed, but the toads croaked sternly back at him.

    Your Dog is Totally Worth Refrigerated Food

    Spending $10-15 a day on perishable organic dog food is not a sign of a decadent culture in terminal decline, it's actually real good and worth it.
