You see guys from time to time its nice to joke around, i would go crazy if
i had to be serious or work with people that do not have a sense of humor.
This is great. But to be honest, Brad has been putting on weight like there
is no tomorrow, and amazing enough all the weight is going to his rear end,
he is loooooosing big time waste up. You should see him doing a three point
turn when he wants to get out of the office.

And Darby "The apparent spokesperson and groupstudy police chief for all
users now and in the future" Weaver can be the commentator.

I think they used to call him: "Iron Brad" or "Ironman Brad" or something 
like that.
